Today will feature a watch generously donated to me by one of our stalwart members, Dave @Davey P, a respected forum friend and favourite. Dave kindly gave me this watch when he offered it up as a find in a random box of several others that came his way around Christmas time last year. A true gentleman, and, I hope, what this forum is all about. All it needed was a new battery, and a bit of TLC to remove some very insignificant swirlies to the acrylic crystal and SS bracelet. This watch is now one of my favourites. Thanks, Dave! :thumbsup: It's the Casio 1922-A220 'Futurist' Illuminator. This one has a negative display, but is still easy to read in daylight. The backlight at night is green. The main feature of this watch is that it has a vibrating alarm, which alerts you via....well....vibrating on your wrist. Just make sure you keep it on when you  go to bed...

Multiple adjustments on the clasp...about an inch (25mm). :sign_what:

Reminds me of this...the watch that James Coburn wore in the film 'Our Man Flint'....not sure about the 'Apple' tag, though.....'Apple' hadn't even been thought of when this film was made...

Mate, you are easily pleased! :laughing2dw:  But I'm really glad you like it, and thanks for the kind words, that means a lot to me :thumbsup:

I fancied a change from my usual TW Steel / Casio Edifice regulars today, so I'm giving this lovely Fossil a bit of wrist time:

Bought from the Fossil Outlet in Austria while I was out there "working".  Just a simple no-date 3 hander, but sometimes less is more, and I really like this one :yahoo:
