Hello - Had no idea there would be a watch thread here! Glad I found it.
I'm a WUS member, but don't spend a lot of time there.
I have a fondness for the Seiko divers, new and old. Today I'm sporting a Ball Master Engineer II Sportsman.

Iono, the 10 beat per second is pretty neat and I want one too

But then, it seems kind of weird having 2 identical looking watches.

Obviously, I'm going to need a lot more money to buy a Patek and a JLC and a GS lol. One day...gotta plan ahead though right?

@Dimman how many watches do you have btw? I bought a 10 watch case, which is 4 watches full right now...adding a Patek, a JLC, a Grand Seiko, and a Seagull tourbillon is already 8, and you're inspiring me to collect some watches with complications :/ Maybe I should've gotten a bigger watch case...
Lots. Maybe over 20. Nothing super fancy, though. A lot of Seiko.

I eat my words about the Seagull strap being okay, the one on my skeleton just had the mini leather loop to hold the excess part of the strap in break a few days ago.

I got the 3 dollar Ebay straps and noticed that the texture was just like the Seagull straps. Hoping that it was real leather, I put a little acetone on as an experiment...turns out it's bonded leather. Fairly sure the Seagull strap is also bonded leather.

Still, better than the Seiko strap, which has a strip of foam filler between the bonded leather and the outside vinyl/PU layer! lol...
@Dimman are there budget actual leather straps? I don't really want to buy a nice strap for these beater watches, that would be a waste.

Latest eBay purchase. NaviHawk AT. Previously owned but looks brand new, and got it for a steal. I do need to replace the band though. The "rubberish" band makes my arm sweat.

The first "atomic" watch I've owned. Some pretty cool tech, I have probably changed the time and watched it reset itself more than I should admit to!

Yea but this "reset" only works late well past midnight and by the window ledge, and doesn't work everytime lmao!

Well unless you go satellite wave.

My Grand Seiko is currently with Seiko Japan for service. Took 4 weeks to get to their service bench and it will take another 3 weeks before it comes back to Canada. Hopefully $700 bucks well spent when all said and done.

I had no real issue with it resetting itself. Did it probably a dozen times with no issue. But, yes, just like GPS and a lot of other satellite signals, it does require "line of sight".

Just found this thread. I have started a small collection of watches. Including this one.

I also have an Apple Watch Series 1 but no sense in showing pictures of it. Looking for a good solar watch, and maybe one of the gt86 themed watches. Trying to find one other than the Orient is a bit difficult.
