Is it too late for me to say yes to the Sea Gull? I promise I will put a good one up in exchange.

I offer up a Jiusko diver. It's 43mm, a little long in the lugs for my wrist, plus I never warmed up to the day wheel. Ceramic inlay on the bezel. It is claimed to be titanium, I'm not sure how much is titanium, it is light, but the caseback is stainless. I wore it often, so it's not perfect, but it is in good shape and accurate. I like the hands, even the back ends of the hands are nice.

I have almost this same, zact watch, but in black; I absolutely love it. Therefore, in the interest of keeping happy horological siblings together, I will gladly step up to the plate and avail myself of this awesome product of the Peoples' Republic of Chiner. (I'll PM you when the thread has been locked, svagy...)

Cool. You will like the blue, it is a nice shade that I can't seem to get a good picture of.

Okay, gang, first things first: please accept my apologies for taking so long to get this offered up. I wanted to make sure that the watch I offered wasn't some throwaway piece of junk, especially since Allison's offering was completely and totally awesome-possum, steaky-saucem. And for those who didn't see it in that first WURW after it arrived here at Casa de los Muertos, here are a few snaps...

Now my first Jiusko won't be lonely any more...

Many, many thanks, Allison; I could not be happier with this wonderful TAPLAP acquisition. 8)

And now, without any further ado, palaver or discussion, I present my latest offering for your perusal and consideration, a little ditty from the good folks at Casio: a very nice G-Shock.

Image

Original packaging, a genuine "Swiss tin" box (sorry, can't help it, Avi's an eeeeedioate, Steeempy).

Image

This one comes with the unusual 'polished' case & bracelet, and even more unusual gold dial elements. Just look at the size of that instruction booklet...

Image

It's big -- about 50mm -- but it's extremely light and uber comfortable. Trouble is, I'm so busy with my vintage watches and contemporary automatics, well, y'all know how that is...

Image

Check out the unusual gold-on-black digital digits. Pretty cool, IMHO.

Image

Well, that's about it, my fellow Watchforums.nettites. I hope this one tickles a fancy somewhere; it's really an excellent piece of wrist adornment and deserves some extended wrist time. 8)

Okay, gang; last BUMPski-ROO before I consider another TAPLAP offering...it might not be as cool as this G-Shock, though, so take one last good look ( :shock: ) before you let this'n get away! 8)
