After trying to like a DW5600 (I just don’t) I sold off a few odds n ends and have a Bm8180 on the way for my casual watch, the skx, Bambino, f91w and edox have their place but there’s something to be said for a basic field watch.. or is this a Flieger?

So with the boost in prices due to the SKX being discoed I sold my skx007 for a cheeky little profit... and bought a skx013 which was incorrectly labeled on eBay ;)

Woo, a watch thread!

Watches were my second interest/obsession behind knives. :)

Picked up a Seiko Sportura Alarm Chronograph [SNAE67P1] for my 20th birthday as I had had a myriad of cheapies over the years and wanted a good watch.


Then the following year, on my birthday, I went back to the same store and bought the Tag Heuer Carerra Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph I had passed up for the aforementioned Seiko



Since then I've picked up a Tag Heuer Carerra SpaceX Limited Edition



I've also picked up up a few smartwatches and running the Huawei GT Watch as my daily

So while it is automatic, hacks, hand winds, stainless case, pretty solid bracket (screw pins and solid links)I will say it’s not the most water resistant...

What model is this Hamilton watch??
This is reference H694190 it comes on a kinda meh leather backed beige padded canvas strap as pictured a few posts up.
Be warned it’s a 38mm and some guys feel that’s a little too small but I love that size.
