Brand new Seiko 5 sports. Not bad for a weekend beater!
TROPICAL, no matter how hard they try to capture this ... ONLY VINTAGE pieces have the right flavor ... brown black fade depending on how the light hits the dial ... I love ... case in point .. on my omega 120 from 1967
Testing out my new Seiko 5 Diver this weekend. Really wanted a "beater" for an upcoming vacation that I didn't need to worry about. Saw a few of these on the forum (@Jwit ) and have to say it checked all the boxes. Looks good, versatile, inexpensive and comfortable. It will work just fine for a hassle free, worry free time me thinks!
Started with grey side today, but for the first "beach" day in the mid Atlantic called for the 82 matte sub with the original bezel faded by time to a greyish blue [emoji106]
Hey look at that! You guys are going to love it.

Such a great watch even as a beater. I'll tell you, mine has had a rough start to its life... fighting violent patients, getting smashed into door frames/walls/car doors/windows, been puked on, bled on, and yes sh*t on, and it still looks like it came out of the box yesterday! And I'm wearing it today! Last day of my work week that is...
Some fair-weather skiing with the Speedy
Not the easiest watch to fit under ski gloves, but had to get the wrist shot
Dreaming of summer! Still below the freezing point at nights...
Get bigger gloves then it fits just fine.

And the inevitable switch after work. Made a slight adjustment to the bracelet last night and it got even more comfortable.
When they say a TOOL WATCH...
Orient perpetual calendar. Giant watch, but wears really nice.
