Love that JLC, and its slightly bigger brothers. :love:

Re: 3 days no photobucket :(

Anyone got suggestions for decent image hosting? It seems there are alot of complaints about photobucket, imageshack etc. so I would be really keen to hear from people that are happy with what they use??

Re: Seiko FFF ( Fifty Four Fathoms )

For easy visibility all night long, Tritium>anySuperSpecialLume. Sure you don't get that big charged up lume effect, but we all know that doesn't last. If I ever sell my MSAR, I am sure the tritium tubes will be missed the most. Aside from Ball and Marathon, who else delivers the Trit goodness? (als...

Re: Not bonding

Flip it. I have a bad ass Seiko orange monster I might be willing to trade. I will throw in a free bright orange nato to sweeten the deal.
Seriously though, the JLC is very nice. Maybe you could convince your friend to trade his watch for something different? You could pass on my offer to him maybe?

Re: ORIS GREAT BARRIER REEF TIMEPIECE

I tried it on once. Very nice, but at 47mm it is too large for me. I am sure I will eventually add an Oris to my collection, as they seem to be a solid choice for the money.

Re: Slowly, but surely

I have felt this also with my MSAR. I was wearing my PO XL alot, so when the Marathon arrived it felt weird wearing a watch with such a small busy dial, and comparitively small case. I felt a bit dissapointed, but I have really warmed to it now after a few months. Love the tritium, and I actually li...
