My dear @Jet Jetski ... After scrutinizing your post for "any camp double entendres"... The only one I could "come up with" ... was "turn with the palm of your hand in a wet glove"... So my conclusion .... You are either "gay ... bi-sexual ... lesbian ... transgender ... straight ... or a scientist " ... or any combinations of the above ... As one who often pondered the physics of elasticity in the 1980s whilst pulling at my rainbow "Mork and Mindy" braces I understand ... (I think ?)...

 Either way ... nice watch ...nice strap ... 

Ps ... I thought (or was taught) it was .... Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain ? Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet ? :thumbs_up:

I am wearing this - I'm about to go to bed so didn't want to take a new pic in my jim-jams, anyway, someone referenced my 'celebration of diversity' watch-strap (which I wasn't wearing) today at work in a disparaging way and using frankly non-inclusive terminology, therefore, they are going to get, in full effect, complete with NATO stock number and pheon 'broad arrow', the Elliot Brown expedition diver.  For anybody curious, I don't actually give any thought to anyone's orientation (except my own when I am on the hill and the fog comes down), but I have been wearing circular rainbows for well over 30 yrs in one form or another, long before it's modern connotations, in reference to a Hopi folk tradition. 

For anybody scientific, the naming of the rainbow colours is a bit cocked up, and the actual order is red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue, violet: ROYGCBV;  Richard Of York Gave Children Boiled Vegetables

For anybody not scientific, all rainbows are theoretically circular, as they are the base of a cone centred on your eye, roughly half of which, if projected, would be underground.  I believe if you are high enough up, looking off a mountain peak or from a plane, you can see a whole circular rainbow. 

Anyway, save money, or your legs, and feast your eyes on my circular(ish) rainbow G10.  Rainbow Warriors are Go! Oh, the watch is really heavy, made of hardened steel, the PVD is at least the same hardness coefficient as the steel, with a hob-nailed bezel which you can turn with the palm of your hand in a wet glove.  Which comes in useful all the time, obvs.  What is useful is the triple seal that means the case won't admit water even if the crown is not screwed down.  Wish Tag had thought of that ...

Lorus VD53 chronograph, 44mm case, nasty half-leather strap. "Spares or repair" that seems to be working fine with a new battery. Maybe a new strap would dress it up a bit, or is that lipstick on a pig?

Its on a generic 90's tag bracelet, I have the Heuer one but it was clearly for a child as it won't go around my chubby wrists! I am leaning it on the work surface as well, (as you can see the top of it is pulled down, it normally sits pretty flush
