Ahh, the Orange Bullet is on my wrist.

Went to the Mother In Law’s today and got my Christmas gift from her, a Seiko “Orange Bullet” Diver’s watch.
It’s a real beauty. Even though it is 42mm in diameter, the lug to lug distance is about 43mm, so no annoying overhang on my dainty wrists.

You can see it changing the date in this photo.  It changes between 10:30 and midnight.  I did take it out of the box a few weeks ago to resize the band, but now I can really wear it. I did miss wearing it. I did get the perfect accessory from Tiffany, a valet with a watch drawer to hold my slowly growing collection. I’ll take a photo of it when I get a chance.

This site it to promote the appreciation of everyday wrist and pocket watches.  I have seen too many sites devoted to watches I would never want to afford.  The problem with watches is that once you go over about $500 or so, you get  really diminishing returns.  A fine Omega or Raymond Weil is a nice thing, but I have a wife and child and car payment.

Here you will see Timex, Seiko, Fossil, Pojot, and just about any watch that won’t break the bank.   I personally love Seiko watches.  They are the best fit and finish in the industry for the money, in my opinion.  So, look down at your $30 beater watch on your wrist and let me know what you think of it.
