  1. Casio Edifice EFV-100D-1AVUEF today:
  2. Hi all Apologies if this topic has been done before but it's a new year and collections change. Daylight saving time means changing the time on quartz watches... and that's quite a few for me (but small fry compared to others here) a: 23 in total. I've also got four that change over themselves, all G-Shocks: No automatics shown; I change them when I wear them. How many change overs did you have today?
  3. Giveaway prize still on the wrist! I swapped it onto a Hirsch leather strap:
  4. I wiped the suntan lotion off the clasp on put on one of my holiday watches. This one was bought in Gran Canaria: It doesn't seem to have tempted the sun to come out yet but fingers crossed...
  5. A parcel arrived yesterday... And this was inside! Thanks @Roy
  6. Looking out over a changed landscape this morning... Stay safe folks.
  7. I bought a Conquest last year. I tried on a few of the quartz VHP models. I'd tried on the automatic too and preferred the cleaner look. It's worth trying them all on because they look and feel quite different on the wrist. I went with the auto in the end, it feels heavier, has a deep black dial: Hope you find the right one for you.
  8. This today and a lazy Sunday ahead:
  9. I suspect you don't see as much stuff like this anymore because a lot of those brands really aren't positioning themselves as tool watches now. They know (and we know) there's other far cheaper watches that perform better in extreme situations. Those still focused making tool watch watches can make even more amazing claims. Like the Casio G-Shock that survived the fall from 44km up: Or the Victorinox INOX tests which include being frozen, boiled, ran over with a tank and having a mountain rescuer attached to a helicopter using the watch: https://www.victorinox.com/global/en/Watches/Our-Watches/Watch-tests/cms/watches-tests
  10. Casio Edifice EFV-100D-7AVUEF today:
  11. Old photo but today's watch/strap combo is: Seiko 5 SNXS77 on a Hirsch strap. Zingy!
  12. Casio Edifice EFV-100D-1AVUEF, as shown in the value for money watches topic:
  13. Surprised no-one's mentioned it and apologies for stating the obvious... Sticking with Casio, these three were my last purchase of last year: They're the Casio Edifice EFV-100D's. The specs are great for the £60 asking price; 40mm case (there's also a 35mm version, the EFV-110D), applied indices, 100 metre water resistance, screw down crown and Japanese quartz movement. It's a simple but attractive watch, with a well sculpted case that's really reminiscent of the Seiko SARB033, with the same alternating brushed and polished chamfered detailing. The black and blue both have a nice sunburst effect in direct sunlight, but it can be difficult to capture in a photo: The white dial has a subtle frosted effect: These are great value for money but they're not perfect, as you'd expect for £60! They have a mineral crystal (to be expected at this price), and the bracelet looks okay but it's a bit tinny and rattly. The screw down crown is also a bit rough when being screwed in or unscrewed. These are all pretty minor though, and I enjoyed the black dial so much that I bought the other two as well.
  14. There's a seller on eBay who has Jubilee bracelets for the SNXS range. I ordered one and my experience wasn't good, unfortunately. The end links didn't fit so it got returned. I've been hunting for a superior bracelet for the SNXS for a while with no luck. The only thing I can think of is a straight end link 19mm bracelet or a mesh... but a good quality strap would probably look a lot better.
