Looks like an older Luminox diver.
I know roo is thin leather, but aren't the leather straps just too bulky once you fold them over and all??
Does anyone make a shorter NATO strap for the more petite of us? : )
Just don't want three layers of crap all rolled up and stuffed...
You can cut them shorter yourself. See this tutorial. I've done this with nylon and leather, though you obviously don't need to use a lighter on the leather.
maybe our definitions of poor differ, here's a crappy shot of my beaters
Steinhart Nav B-Hur and Seiko Monster
Please say I'm correct
Very nice beaters
Good stuff. How are you finding the Steinhart? I was thinking about flipping my Seamaster, buying a Ocean one and pocketing the rest.
Not in the case of the kangaroo. The regular kangaroo will stretch over time, however.
The Kangaroo Tail will not stretch and is only slightly thicker.
Apologies for the Rolex, but it IS Vintage!
Nice poor man's watch
Would make sweet love to any Sub
Thanks. Since this thread started describing a late model Omega as a "Poor Man's Watch", I should point out that if you can afford a new Omega, you can certainly afford a vintage Rolex.
Indeed based on purist criteria I would point that there are "good" watches, that is to say watches worth appreciating on their own, at almost every price point.
Neither Omega or Rolex (vintage or otherwise) are poor man's watches!
They are to me.
It's a solid watch. Obviously (as the photograph probably also shows) I'm not yet at that baller level income so I have little experience with prestige watches, but the nav B definitely punches above its class. The watch just seems nicely made, definitely surprised me at this price range. i really dig the sterile look and the dial is very nice to look at. You Mark XVI owners will probably balk at this, but I'd say it is one of the manufacturers better models and a well made homage.
