Only place I've found is thru Global Rakuten by searching part numbers.

Would have been nice if there was some sort of technology which could incorporate the bezel operation into the LCD for bezel functions, but that would be more money and I'm not sure if the WR would be sacrificed?

If it can be had in the <$300 camp it'll be a winner. I suppose you can still mark time with the bezel if you time it right to the display.

Nice! That one or the 005 are the ones I'm considering. It will be good to hear what you think.

Where are you ordering from? Don’t pay eBay prices.

This is a fun watch. It wears very nicely for its size.

This might illustrate how the bezel works:

How is the display compared to Casio?

Can the outer track display seconds vs minutes?

The display is similar to a G. I notice no difference in quality.
The outer track is strictly for minutes. It disappears once you leave the time display.

Thanks. It’s a nice looking digital. It appears to be able to accept natos too.

I was going to put one on today, but the lug bar pusher I keep in my desk is too thick for the drilled lugs. I’ll use the thin one I have at home tonight. I didn’t want to start digging at the lugs with a cheap tool.

The strap doesn't look excessively long, so what's your wrist size?

About 7.25”. I think the strap is shorter than the ones that come on the Turtles and Samurais. It is comfortable and looks good, but I rarely keep this style of strap for very long.

That's actually good to know. I was thinking if the same as the Turtles with that case size it'd be too long for my 7" wrist.

I put it on a Toxic Shiznit. It is very comfortable because the watch is super light. It sits a little higher than I’d like, but I think I can live with it.
Have a new set of spring bars ready. The ones it comes with are horrible. It uses standard bars, not Seiko fat bars.

As far as I can tell, yes. It passes for PVD steel, though.

That's pretty cool, I may check one out. A Seiko like a gschock I think there's something there

Does it have countdown timer as well as stopwatch?
If someone tells you "There's no such thing as a stupid question", have him list a watch for sale on WUS.
