    Anyone here ever get into modding or building watches? Looking for another hobby to blow my money on now that the Tacoma’s done :rofl:

    Seriously though, I need something to keep me busy through the winter, if anyone’s into it at all, let me know, trying to figure out where to get started.

    Obligatory watch pic of course

    Made an impulse buy that showed up this week......Islander ISL54, from a NY based micro brand that uses Seiko movements.

    Blown away by the value at $189 shipped. Love my Seiko Diver, but it doesn’t fit under long sleeves well and this fit the bill.

    New microbrand out of Chicago, he started out making seiko mods, this one is based off one of his original Explorer homage mods.

    For another pretty one check out his NDR001 Snowflake. That’ll be my next buy.

    An Explorer has always been a grail for me, but the more microbrands I find, the more I like them. Feels good to support small mom & pop type operations.

    I almost feel like we’re in the middle of a renaissance for small watchmakers, and we’ll see more and more pop up, similar to how craft beers and micro breweries have taken a huge market share from the big brewers.

    Always felt that Luminox was a nice looking watch but grossly overpriced. Black Friday sale brought them down to earth a bit.

    Yep, all their watches have them. They work well. Not as bright as super luminova but they work 24/7.

    Apologies if you’re sick of seeing this one, but every time I put on a different strap, I love this little watch even more!

    Keep it up! Such a nice looking watch. I love the clean aesthetics of a good tool watch. It's the thing I love about my Sinn too.

    Is that strap new? I have the same strap on a timex & it is a pain in the ass to keep clean.

    yeah, I have some brown leather ones but I wanted one in a darker color. It’s a cheap Ritche off Amazon.

    If you figure out how to keep it looking nice, post-up - I'd sure like to know

    Wife got me a Seiko 5 Sports for Christmas. My first automatic. Really enjoying it so far...except when I don’t wear it for a few days.
