I swore no mas, but this was too good to pass.

Saw this in the Walmart for $36 with a flat battery.

MDV-106 "Marlin."

Now I have 2 dive watches.

The band is surprisingly inoffensive. It has a nice matte finish, and more flex than expected. This could probably get away as a slightly dressier watch when the blue is just too much.

Compared to my 500 meter Deep Blue Master 500 swiss automatic.

After changing the battery I discovered the face is a single piece of metal. You can see indents where the indices reside. One reviewer thought this meant the indices were pressed, rather than applied. However, they stand out such that I think they might still be applied, but the dial has the shapes pressed in so they can be easier to apply in the right places.

Good deal, great piece. Good to see you're expanding a little bit. Anything under 10 is reasonable, imo.

My collecting is on the wane.

I've had nearly 140 watches come and go, not all at once, mind you ;)

I've been primarily wearing the GBX-100 for daily step tracking, so it's rare if anything else sees play these days.

I've always meant to get a Marlin, and for the price, I'll have zero regrets.

New to me, just replaced the bezel.






When was it ever a question of need?

Maybe we can make a deal?

I got this in today, the GWR B1000 Gravitymaster. My first full analog G-Shock. The "luminox bug" bit me recently and as I was shopping around I came across this model. Its everything I wanted and then some for an analog model. Blows away any of the luminoxes I was looking at and of course G-Shock toughness and features.

I used to have this watch. Its an sr626.
Much appreciated. My local drugstore actually had the batteries in stock, and it's changed already and running fine.

My Mudman is canceled. They send money back.
Will be on the list for later.

But on Wednesday I'm going to see an old lady in Holland. Can't wait ... It's gonna be fun.

It's old, rare, limited and brand new with can box and original stripe with model number. I Teel to much.

I like controversy.
