I came close, but bailed; available coupon took care of the tax.
If you have a Discover Card, you can get 5% cashback on PayPal purchases through the end of September. Considering how long these watches have been sitting around, I wonder if they need service.

I wanted to try one but it’s only available in 17.5mm???
The OD green and black are 17.5mm only, but the khaki comes in 17.5, 20. and 22mm. Lengths can be customized.

Terry, you ran your business the right way, so I know this is a big disappointment for you. Hopefully, at some point, you'll find a way to get it going again.

Re: WatchRecon And WUS

I don’t understand how the people who run the site think that it’s an acceptable format. The pop up ads make it really tough to browse, and without paying fees you can only attach one photo at a time (sales ads). The site has lost ease of use as a reference tool. I not sure which is more hassle for...

How tall is the 42mm 8500? And how tall is the 2500?
I've seen different specs for the 42mm/2500 that have the thickness anywhere from 14mm to 15.5. I don't have calipers, but using a ruler, it looks less than 14mm.

Re: Newbie question on the Planet Ocean Series

Just for reference, this is what a 42mm 2500D looks like on a 7.75" wrist. I've owned a PO xl 2500D and an 8500 xl and prefer the smaller model. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200604/fe9c160e1e71eeb0ebd016f40bef541c.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200604/7f5f3476cfccf317f7855bcd3a732bec....
