After wearing my Raven for the first tyme in a while I thought that this is a really well put together watch...My question is do you have a certain watch that while it may not be the "grail" piece...but is just a solid dang good looking watch??

It was just a passing thing...looking thru the boxes and saying...."Wow" I haven't worn this in a while and thinking this is a really great watch....which needs more attention... :smiles:

I guess it would have to be the Monster right now. I pretty much look forward to wearing it again every time I put it back in my 12 watch case. I’m a little OCD about my 12 watch rotation and every night I look at the date wheels (I only have 1 “no-date”) and go to bed knowing which one is next and I’ll sit at the kitchen table and set it while I drink my AM coffee. This has been a pleasant diversion in the AM as I’ve been working at home for 18 months.

I love Tritium! Also this case and bezel,nice White MOP, all come together right. Especially at the price I got this.

The Delma Oceanmaster Antarctica is the watch that makes me smile every time I wear it. Delma is smaller family owned Swiss brand that is almost 100 years old and makes some really nice watches. The fit and finish is super nice and my poor photography skills can't capture the depth of the dial finish.

This watch does it for me - I have more H2O watches in my collection than any other brand, and I could probably post about any of them (such as the 10 Mile in titanium), but this model I really gush over whenever it sees wrist time. The damascus dial, the special cutout with US flag, 6000m water resistance, the best DLC coating in the business, a top grade ETA 2892 upgrade - the watch was not cheap by any means (I'm thinking about 1,155 EUR). But whenever I wear it, I'm mesmerized by the dial (and I love the USA flag lume in the dark).

Years ago I got into Swiss Army Knives as a hobby. One day, I saw this SA Watch and just had to have it. This watch was the beginning of watches as another love/hobby! Great quality, Swiss made, affordable, and love the look - especially with the aftermarket strap I found on Amazon!

I WAS BLIND AND NOW I SEE

that was not in my wheelhouse...although that micro is tops the china trade has been squeezing it's margins

in the people's lad 40% of the 1.6 billion population makes less than $1700 USD

they have no enviro labor SS medicaire trademark copyright ...all them pesky rules china trade is "total freedom " so it's cheap cheap lo lo KING OF TOOL

but this RAVEN is a beaut... i always eschewed GMT ELAPSED TIME BEZEL...because my fetish was LLOYD BRIDGES , JAQUES COUSTEAU , 3 hand diver king case retro tool elapsed time bezel... but that passion flamed out in a bout a decade...and i went flying FLIEGER with SKYKING...and mil-tool explorers...

but i love that clean wet battle ship grey HARD KORE SS GMT BEZEL

reflections on DATE WINDOW FENESTRATION... yeah I am going with the trend of NO DATE...but when my RZE ti lume came in with a date window I DISCOVERED A DATE HOLE LOOKS RETRO... so there is a place in my box for DATE HOLES

nice plink REPO

SOME HUNTERS just carry a rifle in the woods and see a 6 point buck and never fire a shot and have a wonderful day
