Well made watch but after four hours on the wrist, will be selling it.

What I get for making an impulse buy. Won’t take a bath on it, fortunately.

Not a thing wrong with it. Wears smaller horizontally and vertically than the numbers, which is excellent, but feels heavier than what I find tolerable. Lume is nothing special. Typical of Tissot level watches.

Crown guard to too much for my taste but really does it’s job. Dial is ink black with good AR on the crystal. Indices and hands are brilliantly polished and well done. Day/Date change is crisp. Smooth ass winding.

Great clasp with on the fly adjustments easily made. Rock solid. Screws secure bracelet links and are smooth threading.

I bought this one on sale, and it came with a rubber strap. I replaced that with a sailcloth strap. I thought that would be permanent, but that strap got too funky too fast, so I sprung for a bracelet. I'm pleased with it. I've been wearing this watch every day for about a week. It's currently about three seconds fast.

^^^Handsome Hammy, love yellow dials and that Seiko 5 looks way good!

T, didn’t know you had that Bulova Apollo. That’s sexy!
