Any love for the humble Vostok here?
This Scuba Dude is awaiting some custom mods.
My rubber strap broke on my old Casio. Paired it up with this watch band I bought at an auction. It was black with tarnish ...shined it up and revealed the peoyote bird or water bird. Been wearing it for years for all outdoor activities.
I don't wear a watch too often but this is what I usually use. Should probably change the battery.
Citizen Eco Military w/ Khaki NATO Strap
I like my Fitbit Versa. Not the sturdiest, but I can get a rough idea of how far I travel on any given day.
Always liked that one.
Well, there's no point attaching a picture of my Citizen because it's 3 posts up! Same strap on it even because I didn't like the one it came on. That one sees a lot of time on my arm.
As an aside, any one know anything about "Lucerne" watches? I just got a box of them (17, I think) in various stages of abused. Some run, though, and might be candidates for cleaning up and keeping or flipping.
I have the same watch...same amount of years...second battery...County Comm 2 piece strap.The first battery lasted 12 years or so before it need changing..Tritium is dim now compared to new but still glows bright enough..great Swiss Quartz movement...built like a tank.
I like that Omega a LOT. It's not in the price range that I can justify for a watch, but one of these days...
Not really for the Bush, but I got this Orient Bambino recently. it hacks, handwinds, has great fit and finish, and has been accurate to under 10 seconds a day. It really punches above its weight. I replaced the leather strap with metal mesh.
I may get one of their more rugged diver models later for the bush.
For woods and work wear cheap is the name of the game! I've been wearing illuminators for years.
Mine is a G Shock.
It’s tough enough and if it breaks or gets lost I’m not out much.
Still soldiering on...
County Comm one piece strap in ACU Grey and their same beefy pins. Due for a battery change soon.
Excuse the artifacts of of lighting, please.
Yes I love horology but not in the bush
My friend was wearing a longines I don't remember the ref number , but a quite expensive model , we where hunting and while on the road a wolf came out on road and we chased him , my friend was shooting in the end he run away as our third friend from behind was giving him birdshot lol so after we stopped we realized he lost his watch , month later he got a new one , same story we ran after a rabbit and when I asked time he lost it again lol after that he is wearing a cheap swatch
So I don't want to go down that route and wear a cheap 15$ Casio that is waterproof, has a rotating bezel and if I lose/break it no big deal
Well the watch above died on me about 3 weeks ago and Wall-e-Word stopped selling them. So after weeks of looking around (it's hard to find a watch with no frills but a decent price ) I settled on this one. https://www.certifiedwatchstore.com/timex-mk1-quartz-movement-green-dial-unisex-watch-tw2r37500.html
I will give a review after a month or so. I just ordered it online today so I don't have it on hand... yes pun intended.
