Has anyone tried Tayroc? I am in no way affiliated with them.

What is the name of that specific model of Seiko?  I saw a similar one, but with the 1-12 numbers in the smaller, inside ring, and 5/10/15-60 around the outside ring.  I liked it's look, but I'd rather have the hours on the outside.  Your model looks like the one I've been trying to find!

What is the general view on Rotary watches? I saw a nice dress watch I kinda liked.

Rotary doesn't really get referenced much, but as one who owns one they keep pretty good time. Their movements are usually simple Japanese or Chinese movements thats how they can get away with having "Established in Switzerland" printed on the face. Back to the movement, mine runs a tad fast but i guess thats better then running late! Personally i would pay the RRP that they're asking, but i got mine on sale so i was happy!

 

A Pic of the beaut!

So I'll be spending October nomading around S.E. Asia. This, of course, calls for a new companion. So I picked up this beastly thing:

 

 

 

Never will I be left wondering which way is North, or if that is, in fact, a low pressure system headed my way.

I have the exact same one and found a buffalo strap on eBay.  If you think the blue is pretty with the stainless, you should see it against a nice tan.  Incidentally, I had the Sig too in .357.  I loved that thing but the ammo was so expensive.

I also don't like the strap, may be a black or a dark blue rubber strap is better!

Taking a sport/divers watch and putting that leather band on it doesn't look good. It needs a metal or nato strap. It looks mis-matched.

Hey lads. I'm doing some travelling soon, going to Nepal, then Greece later on. Looking to buy a watch that isn't going to fall apart if I hit it against things and such, and look a bit tough if it gets scratched up. Now, before you say G-Shock, they're ugly, so no. I was thinking a Seiko Diver, I really like the look of this one.


Can anyone comment on their reliability or offer an Alternative. Don't want to spend too much either, preferably under $200. It needs to be battery powered, I don't want to be mucking about with an auto movement when I'm half way up Everest. 42mm is also perfect.
