      That's a nice vibe, and I think, balances out the head well.

      G-Lide, the surfer's watch ...I certainly wish my Module 3229 had more than its 2-year battery life :/

      Have you seen the new one? The GBX100? It looks pretty cool.

      Nope, didn't know about the GBX-100 before. Thanks! ...It is a very attractive G-Shock, IMO.

    Keeping with the Sinn theme so far today and trying on an aftermarket curved rubber which i quite like, only problem is the taper on the strap reduces the size on my chunky wrists and I def need the full 20mm right through, but definitely a cheaper path before I head down the Sinn rubber and deployant option!

    I do like that UTC Bambi, heard a lot of positives about the Elliot Brown and I like their Havloc I think it is.

    Enjoy the weekend gents

      the elliot brown wont work for you mate. my wrist is only 187mm but it is flat/square shape and the angle of turn down on the strap is way too steep for me, it would be cutting into your wrist about 5mm past the lugs of the 104!

    Finally spent some money on a dedicated 17mm strap for the Waterking this month, and I think I have the look right where I want it for this watch now. A DeBeer lizard grain in blue - really suits the champagne colour the dial has and I'm finally not trying to bend an 18mm in there for once! Had a nice Colareb strap arrive for my Seiko 7005 this week as well but I'll post that another time.






    Hope you all have a good weekend wherever you might be.

      You chose the straps well, Gauss ...It is a lovely combo that is refreshing, and the blue cuts well with the dial tone, sort of like blued steel hands do.

    Does this count... wonder if it's genuine?

        1991 would be my guess, too Pete, though I couldn't find this model in either the 1991 nor 1992 JDM catalogs. We don't have a 1990, and your watch could be in there, and this specimen among the last batch produced--there is a "Racing" collection in the 1991 lineup. Else, it could be for markets outside of Japan.

        I think this is the actual successor of the gold-dial 6139-6002 "Pogue"

        Funny you say that Don....

        (I was JUST thinking the same thing, exactly).

        Hi Don. Yes all the dial features do actually look really nice in person as well - the hands, markers, dial etc. The rest of the watch doesn't quite match that quality. The case is all stainless with a screwdown caseback, but it's quite lightweight. It also just houses a cheap Ronda quartz and the usual plastic shroud that holds them. I know a lightweight case doesn't always mean low quality, but in this case it's just the way that it ends up feeling. This watch has been daily wear for it's previous owner and the fully polished case is covered in surface scratches which could be the main problem. When new or if fully polished it may look a lot nicer.
