    • yea, most of my nicer watches have a thin o-ring but the specialty wrench that lets you unscrew and screw back on the back give you the confidence that things stay water proof. BTW, this watch repair kit was less than $20 on Amazon.

    • I bought a much cheaper looking kit, allot less confidence inspiring than yours, long time ago, and never used it. One of these days, I will. I am certain youtube has plenty of tutorial videos.

    • Your thread inspired me to not just take a photo of one of my watches....but, watches for me have to be an extension of my personal brand. I bought this watch from a haole guy in Hawaii because of my living there in the 80's, I like surfing and it was somewhat modern looking. He uses organic koa wood from the islands and then builds the time piece. I don't wear this waterproof watch much mostly because the band clasp is a little tricky and I prefer my "Seiko-esque" watch that has my company logo on the watchface. So, sharing this watch with the internet had to include my personal brand/lifestyle. LOL

      But, what time is it? IT IS TIME TO JETSKI of course!

    • While window shopping today at Lucern, Switzerland this timepiece from Omega blew my mind. When would someone even wear a $141,000 USD (140K Swiss Francs) watch?

    • It's kind of hard to grasp for us mere mortals, but in the old world there are alot of wealthy families for which the act of "making" (i.e. working or putting any effort into it) eight or more figures is frowned upon; they basically have it all. I am certain that is true not just there, but other places too. That, in my humble opinion, is the target market segment for such luxury items. Examples do exist.

    • Less expensive than Rolex or Omega are these cool $20K Chronoswiss watches. They only cost half a year’s salary in US. No price on the toy beach chair next to the watch though... 🤣
