The Wind Sporty

Post by AJC » Sun Dec 30, 2012 3:30 am

The Wind Sporty is a free Chinese made, off the shelf watch that I received when I purchased a Citizen Orca. I've been wearing it to work and noticing the positive aspects and tried to capture them with a cheap cell phone camera.

Strap is actually very comfy as it molds to your wrist, great for physical work when you don't want to damage a good watch.

Dial is black with a cool copper-tone sunray shimmer.

Hour indices are outlined in gold-colored something or other, I've liked that look in the Tudor BB and like it here... yeah I just compared it to a Black Bay. :albino:

Bezel is reminiscent of some Seiko Diver's like the 7002 and is bidirectional, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Is that a red birdy or red fishy on the strap, adjacent to the 12 o'clock on the dial? I forget what either means in Chinese mythology...

But it's cool when an el freebo watch turns out to have some coolness... :face:

I say is a winner, where you get a freebie like that?

I say wear it when done try your hand at lining it. For now just enjoy the dull glow.
