        Yep, if this guy sold watches, he'd be selling them with the best listings on the auction site.

        Comedic, tbh

        Image could be made 2x larger and still fit? ...Like the 80s vibe of that.

      Such a cool watch. A workmate of mine about 10 years ago had one of these. It’s another one of those watches I wish I’d grabbed when they were readily available and relatively cheap.
      I also like your Nixon. It’s got some nice design features and I’ve often thought I’d like one, but was always put off by a friend of mine who used to be the warranty manager for the Burton distributor in NZ. He spent his days dealing with returned Nixon’s due to their poor build quality and was over joyed when Burton sold the brand. If you’ve got one that’s been trouble free for over 5yrs you’ve got a goodie.

      I braved the supermarket at 8am this morning. Quite a few other people had the same idea so it was busier than it normally would be at 8am on Easter Sunday. Still, there were no queues and the rest of my day is free now so it was worth it. The Helix Okto joined me for the ride-

        I did pick my pour old Nixon up from the discount bin interestingly, I'm actually surprised that the battery is still running and it doesn't get much wrist time!! Super long queues today as 3 of the 5 supermarkets are closed. Your helix is super cool, do they weight much, Nixon's about 180g I think and the Orac's almost nothing.

              Wow, just wow. That's some watch you have there.

          • I’ve never, in my life, had to shorten a watch strap. I’m not sure what’s up with German wrists?

              Could make a crass comment but (in a rare display) will refrain.

              Very tuff & purposeful wrist kit in deed, it's a SINN
