Very happy with my fellow San Diegans. Everyone is keeping their distance. Not as packed as most days leading up to a three day weekend but I think that may be due to travel restrictions for out of town era more than anything. I got this Zissou a while back for this exact purpose, beach beater. The rubber strap is surprisingly comfortable, definitely better than any g shock I have owned. It’s nice being able to swim without constantly checking my wrist to make sure my Swiss shitter is still there. I have a floral Nato en route from cheapest nato straps but the global pandemic is causing heavy delay in intl shipping. Ok ciao!

If you’re looking for an automatic watch you never need to change the battery, skx/5kx is a solid bet. My only gripe w that one is the timing bezel with no indices/lume pip, so you can’t even use it to time anything. I’m very ‘pro seiko’. If you’re looking to dip your feet into the mechanical watch game, I say pull the trigger. Resale value should be pretty good if you want to get something else afterwards. Worst case is you need to try and sell on a street fighter forum or some jazz, @mr.yuck

Ugh. I just went down a rabbit hole of things that I like that dont make sense for me to own.

If I ever decide to spend new car money on a watch should I go with 1 Franck Muller

Or should I go with a cartier and a rolex

I would say rolex.  Because rolex holds pretty good value.  The frank muller watches are nice but, the price for one, I feel I could have a few great watches that would be more enjoyable on the wrist.   Thats just my opinion. 

 

Now if it had new car money, I probably would go with a pre owned Urwek or new HYT.

i had never heard of urwek before. They make some pretty cool looking shit. I never thought that I would like asymmetry on a watch case, but they pull it off very well

 

Truth!  Those guy really went above and beyond style and design.  I think the only other type of timepieces that rival urwerk are minute repeaters.  I just I could find a decent to good quality minute repeater under $500.00
