Hi, Gang!
I was unable to post wristies on Monday and Tuesdays because of a medical "crisis" at home (everything's all right), so for Wednesday, a review of the watch I wanted to feature: this newly arrived INVICTA GRAND DIVER with a blue dial/bezel, purchased from a mate on eBay. It's a big watch @ 212 grams, 48mm in width (w. crown) and 13mm in depth. In spite of its size, it's a very comfortable watch w/ a fine NH35A 24 jeweled movement, and excellent lume. The INVICTA engraving on the watch's outer edge (and along with GRAND DIVER on the other side does not bother me. I have several INVICTAS and believe them to be a fine, well-made watch -- (at least the "normal" watches. People shouldn't be too afraid to purchase them... . dave:

I've been wanting to wear the massive ROLEX CHALLENGE DEEP SEA since I secured it in a sale from several years ago. Today, HUMPDAY, I thought: "What the hey!" and wore it. Being as massive as it is: 58mm x 17mm x 306grams -- I thought it'd been too big and too heavy. After wearing it since this afternoon -- complete with a two-mile walk -- it wasn't painful at all. Surprise! Surprise! I believe ROLEX did not market this, I'm glad the reppers did. I got a lot of strange looks while it was on the 'ole wrist. dave;

No, I don't know what happened here; all I know is that PB changed their format suddenly and left things in a mess. I'll try again.

It's PAMSDAY, folks!

To that end, this full dialed model with sandwich numbers emerges from the watch box for a quick run today. Has an automatic movement, nicely detailed, that keeps her running smoothly. Lume is great, for a rep! dave:
