WRUW 1/9/2022 Thru 1/15/2022

#1 Post by statsman » Tue Jan 11, 2022 6:02 am

At 25 years, I guess this 1996 Big XII Championship Game Seiko Kinetic is a vintage watch. Sometimes Seiko gets it really right for a timeless design and sometimes Seiko throws together a hodgepodge of divergent styles that make the whole less than the sum of the parts. I’ll let you decide which this is. :lol: I enjoy focusing on details, like the dial texture, but then get distracted by the crazy proportions of the crown protruding. Oh, well, I have fun wearing it.

I believe what I'm looking at is an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak being devoured by a scaly movie sea monster? ;)

And that's what matters.
Real men wear small watches.

I need to pitch in here and keep this going! :)

For Wednesday the 72' Day 'N Date ST-6503, with the original issue JB Champion bracelet.

It is almost the middle of January, it will warm up one of these days! :o These photos were taken on a much warmer day in Wisconsin!
