bit of a Forum service announcement....

I know a lot of folks like their boutique divers and this has got to be the biggest bang for buck amongst them.

5pm Saturday NZ time I think they are back up for resale.

American owned and operated but undoubtedly china made, does anyone care? we splashed out our money for the turtle with its china connection.

good review of the mark1 and the 2nd iteration looks to only be an improvement.
few reviews on the old PMWF and plenty on WUS affordable divers.
if I'm quick I think I'll give it a go :thumbup:

I really don't know why these companies charge you, John. They should send free to you for evaluation and then bill the next one of us on the forum that gets the watch.

it does look really nice. The only thing holding me back is those sharp edges mentioned in the article.
A heavy watch (on bracelet) with sharp edges will dig into your wrist and can become uncomfortable over time.
I'll give it some more thinking :think:

only on the for sale post :)
sorry mate, the prompt sale is not a reflection of the watch(it was superb value for money as I'm sure the new owner will attest) its more an indication of my "issues" with shiny things.
