Thought this is a nice watch.
Unfortunately, it's a JLC which to me translate to FML...



Luckily I have this wonderful affordable piece that I figured looks close enough and one I certainly can pronounce much easier:biggrin1:





Certainly, you guys can play this game too. Let's see what you guys got.

Sinn U1 vs my Helm Vanuatu, the Sinn is out of my range. But the Vanuatu is a lot of watch for a fraction of the cost.

Well played desk-diver! That is a solid choice no doubt, seriously.:smile-thumb:
Did not set out to buy the Vanuatu, I purchased the Khuraburi and was that impressed with it I ordered the Vanuatu straight away. Helm are supposed to be producing a new smaller in dimensions diver this autumn.
Helm have specifications way above the price point in my opinion, I am sure the new one will be just as good.

James has always been a cool dude and sported a cool Seiko digital back in the days.
Good luck finding this watch and even if you do, even better luck with the bidding.



I may never be as cool as James but I did spy this digital off Amazon and fell in love with it.
For around $23, well, I'm no octopussy so I pulled the trigger.

Casio Royale


A bit of lume in the evening sets the mood for the ladies, not that James would need it.
I, however, need all the help I can get. :biggrin1:


I be like James, cool...

:cool:

Yes smaller for sure, I will check my emails from them. If I remember correctly they gave the watches name and size.

This one is a classic chrono no doubt. Unfortunately, it will take a few megabucks for this Omega.



Casio to the rescue :biggrin1:...

On a more serious note a 1960s Omega Seamaster verses my Dan Henry 1964.

Well yeah, probably the most copied watch out there. It's a beauty.



Here is yet another homage or to the harsh critics, a straight-up ripoff. It is.
Curiosity and affordability got the best of me so I got one.
This is the second Chinese movement I've owned and it's been an impressive one as well.

Loreo Submariner Homage
Hacking and hand-wind Seagull.
Sapphire crystal
Solid SS bracelet with solid end links
Exhibition case back
120 clicks bezel, precise with hardly a play
Screw-down crown, crown action is nice



















Here is an interesting feature I wasn't expecting about this watch. It has an extra set of lug holes.
The extra distal set is meant to accommodate other straps like a nato, so I tried it.
Works great so I thought this is brilliant.






It is what it is but, to be honest, it's a solid watch.
$76.95 delivered.
