    Not a watch, but a De Modell Speedy Rallye Strap very generously donated and sold by watchmad (Mark) for the fundraiser.

    I bought it specifically to put on my Seiko SARB015 - it feels like a quality bit of kit.

    Bargain Beater Bonanza today:



    L: Lanna Starfish v.5 - single crown supercompressor, Sweden, 40mm, Ronda 715 - £140 brand new extra silicon strap
    M: Tauchmeister TO255 - Germany c/o HK I'm guessing, 52mm wide, 1000m rating, Seagull TY2806, will survive next apocalypse , also £140 new (less garish colour combos are available)
    R: Dugena Diver's Friend - Germany, 44mm, full lume dial, quartz (no idea what yet), on a Jubilée Nylon strap from "cheapestnatostraps", £90

    The build of each and every one of these has surprised and impressed, and minor though it is, each arrived with the correct time and date set - unlike ALL of the far more expensive watches I've bought!

    Just ever so slightly shinny new looking, not jealous at all ... much, must give some of mine a little TLC.

    I must say the jubilee bracelet is growing on me.

    This arrived this week, it’s a bit of fun from the aptly named Walter Mitty watches (yes that is their name)
    Not bad for the money and a nice sized 5517 homage.

    A lovely example of one of the greatest watches ever made. I must get my hands on one at some point.

    Picked this up tonight. Have to say the jubilee bracelet is stunning, a small micro adjustment on the clasp and it was on the wrist. Such a relief to have the stickers removed on this one. Sit back relax and enjoy.

    Seamaster 2255.80 that I picked up a couple of months ago, but went straight off for a service.
    Back on my wrist this week & looking superb with the new black 2254 bezel!
    (Thanks to Walkerwek1958 - great watch servicing!)

    First g shock on a bracelet, really impressed. Very light/comfortable, and so easy to resize with the spring bar/link system.

    I like that. The little bit of red livens up the watch.

    Looks like the GW-B5600HR-1ER BLACK AND RED HERITAGE SERIES but this one has a resin band.

    No, that's the same one, same bracelet. But a lot more than Amazon charge!

    Getcha. When you stated "bracelet", I assumed you meant it was metal.

    Awesome, thanks. So is the band made of resin? Does it wear or feel much different to a ‘normal’ bracelet?

    This is a decidedly daft post, but hopefully a bit entertaining.

    A couple of months ago, I got a Globemaster as my daily wearer. This Seiko Presage had been my daily for the previous 12 months or so, and once I was sure it had been superseded, I decided that I would sell it, and put some of the money towards upgrading my beater, which has been a Seiko 5 (an SNZG13)

    I put it on SC at £350...no interest; I lowered it to £300...still nothing; I lowered it to £250...and at this point I realised something......

    My specs for a new beater were going to be black dial, brushed oyster bracelet, good readability, a reliable movement, about 40mm, budget £250; if the Presage was only worth £250 then this was an excellent candidate for my beater! So I sold it to myself, and have reintroduced it to my collection, after a couple of months tucked away in its box.



    And it feels great to have it back on the wrist. It's a really good fit for me, very comfortable. I've always found the feuille hands and Breguet numerals more amusing than refined, so ceasing to lavish care and attention on it won't feel odd. My life is pretty gentle, so it's not like it's going to be getting covered in deep gouges.

    Now I have to decide what to do with the SNZG13 - even unworn they don't cost much, so I doubt there's much point in my selling it, I'll just tuck it away, to sit in reserve.

    Does that count as an incoming? HAHA

    either way - congrats! It's a beautiful piece. Love the numerals

    Well, I had said goodbye to it in a very sincere way (all packaged up etc), so I have just said hello to it...and in different light.

    I fully get you and sometimes why we need to step back and simply enjoy what we have. We like watches, we’re allowed to have a few
