        Nice, kiwi.bloke, congratulations! Movement from the heyday of quartz, and I like how this piece has applied it, i.e. omitting the accumulator sub-dials makes adds a refreshing intrigue to the features of the watch.

        "#1" means more to come? :-O ;D

        My wife feels we should support local businesses during this period and use the take away curb side food options. I prefer to interpret as needling to support international commerce. I have a strange desire for 3 watches in particular. All a little different in their own way. Just have to wait for the right one to pop up and pacific peso to recover...

        Yes, I'm trying to do both too. As I don't have any of the more vulnerable types living with me at the moment, I can still leave home, with proper precautions, and do my part to support local groceries and takeaway food vendors. At the same time, one watch package inbound from overseas, though am expecting a longer-than-usual transit time, especially out of the origin country.

      Some (hopefully) decent whisky arrived at my doorstep this morning so the wife and I are happy. Never tried either before.

      I havent been well since arriving back from States but been feeling better and slowly getting back into home workouts which is feeling good. As a casual bodybuilder resistance training without a gym is difficult! But no excuses, right?

      Stay safe guys.

        Sorry to hear that you've been under the blues, and glad to hear it is blowing over.

      Here in Thailand, state of emergency came into effect yesterday, and likely to last for the whole of April. Not too bad so far, just inconvenient at times.

        Hi Don, whats your assessment of this model?

        Hammers, proper assessment is not easy, and I don't think as simple as many watch YouTubers make it out to be. I was asked this same question by email from a watch-collecting friend who owns an MM300 SBDX001, and my reply to him was 30 paragraphs long :P ...I don't want to bore others here, so if you don't mind, I'll PM you over the weekend?

        Hey Don, I'll look out for that, a little extra spare time at present, at least at the weekend....

        I've always found something alluring about ISO divers from Pulsar and Alba (depending what market you're in). They are Seiko inside, engineered like Seiko, but designed with what looks like complete freedom. I don't know for a fact, nor have even heard about such, but it feels to me like there must be some sort of constraint all Seiko divers, even the boldest ones, need to adhere to--something about the proportion and stance (borrowing from automotive, for lack of a better word). Design-wise, Pulsar and Alba divers just roam wild!
