    also having @Honus make her another ring, which takes priority. so if i can't find watches it won't be a big deal.

    If you aren't in any hurry; take a look at these Scottish watches by anOrdain:



    The dials are enameled by hand.

    I am not sure a $800,000 hublot exists.

    Exactly the sort of person who should be suckered into paying 20x the actual value of a watch.

    Just picked up a new luxury timepiece, the GA-B2100 from the legendary Japanese horology house of Casio, their G-Shock division in particular.

    My 4yr old's favorite colors are pink, purple, and 'lellow'. And this watch is very lellow. She loves it.

    It came on a lellow strap but I swapped a combi bracelet onto it. I did like the lellow look, but it was either too tight or too loose and kept rolling to the outside of my wrist. With the bracelet it's way more comfy and stays put without being too tight.

    Really kinda hoping House Casio releases a Tough Solar version of these. Tough Solar + Multi Band 6 would be really, really neat.

    This is the new-new solar powered version! The 'b' in the model name is for Blue Tooth. Unfortunately no MB6 tho.

    Cool watch. I'm digging the lellow.

    I've seen a few of these and can't figure out what the half dial in the middle left of the watch does?

    On the non-solar version it tells the days of the week.

    On the new solar version (like my yellow one) it normally shows the battery charge level (L, M, or H) and when you switch out of the time keeping mode it tells you which mode you're in (which is kinda pointless since the LCD also shows that as you cycle through the various modes). All the various modes happen in the LCD, the main hands always just tell the time.

    Yeah, as soon as I read that news I immediately thought insurance fraud; why would anyone wear a million dollar watch while on vacation? That's like the riskiest time to be robbed. I think they were wearing cheap sub $1,000 watches, then they paid some guy, maybe someone they knew, then scoped out the area to find a good camera placement, then the show began, when you think about it why would a thief rob someone in front of cameras? Or they wore the million dollar watch only later to get the watch back from the supposed thief. The other thought was the tourists were wearing cheaper $5,000 or so watches, a real thief too stupid to know about cameras but knew about watches, robbed them of the $5,000 or so watch, then the tourists lied to the police and said it was a million dollar watch. Personally, I think my first choice is what happened, they needed a camara to document as evidence they were "robbed".

    What's strange too, is that they were wearing cheap clothes, then the thief comes from way back on the street, there is no way that robber could tell what kind of watch he was wearing from that far back, and the watch man doesn't even try to stop him, not only that but the thief knew how to unclasp the watch. I think this was a staged event to get a payout from the insurance company.

    I'm in the process of studying to take the PE in October to get my Professional Engineering license. Been out of school for 15 years so I've got a LOT of brushing up to do. But when I pass, I'm getting this Longines (37mm Spirit) to celebrate. This thing checks a lot of boxes for me.

    You better pass, because that's a nice watch! Plus, all the hard work you put in for that degree, yeah, you deserve it.

    Wifey and I are coming up on #10 . Decided a little bit back that I wanted to get her/ us a watch. Not high end, but more substantial than the Wahoo Rival she wears on weekends. Tudor to the rescue. BB58 for me, 32 for her. I figured non-date would be a solid starting point, given that this will be her first auto. I had the case-backs engraved with something to celebrate the moment, and the warranty cards dated with the anniversary date. Had planned on waiting till the anniversary, but she's been going through a bit of a rough patch, so I figured I'd show her now to lift her spirits a bit.

    Congratulations Dustin to both you and your wife; Sorry to hear about your wife, I sincerely hope and pray that whatever the rough patch your wife is going through that she will come out of it in fine shape.

    Tudor is plenty high end enough! Nice selection you chose, I hope she liked hers.
