Bought me this yesterday for 40 notes off amazon. Not sure if its going to be a bit too in ya face for me but the price was too temting. Will make my mind up when it arrives. Just after a watch i can use every day which can take a beating, especially when on the bike.

    Don't normally wear a watch as I use my HTC for the time but as we aren't allowed to have our mobiles on in work I blew the budget and spent £6 on a cheapo from Argos and if I break it I won't be too worried.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    This was meant to be my 'nice' watch, but I wear it every day as I'm not allergic to it (I have a nickel allergy)

    A snowy white watch? That'll look lovely after collecting some crud. But at least then it'll look more butch.

    Some nice watches, Really Liking the redbull racing casio. That G shock i have waiting for stock in my amazon account, They reduced quite a few g shocks the other day and they all sold pretty quick. That one had come down to £33 :shock:

    Mine came today and must say it looks the muts nuts, comfortable to wear and obviously feels quality built being g shock.

    Thats why i bought this because it can take being covered in crud. Being "snowy" white, Hey it'll match my snowy white ZTR flow rims :mrgreen:
    As for looking "Butch", ill leave that to you and the lesbians :P

    I have the brown strap though.

    I recently thought it had broke but it goes into sleep mode when left un-moved for a prolonged period of time. Had me totally confused. :D

    These are a bit marmite in the watch lovers community, and I can't afford them, but do like them. Uboat watches in general not just this one. They are huge though.

    and a citizen eco drive wr 200. for the money i don't think there's a watch out there to touch this one, I've had it for 5 years now, it's never stopped and has been accurate TO THE SECOND in all that time. it receives a radio signal every morning at 2 am and set's it's self to the correct time.

    My surfboard is still in pretty good condition, that's what you get for Living in the East Midlands! It didn't get wet too often.

    Very nice collection, unless you bought them all for £20 whilst on a ladyboy holiday in Thailand.

    I'm not a fan of watches but the Relativity Watch does appeal to me, if I were to ever buy a watch
