I think the quality of this one was overall good (as far as Android is concerned). The quality of my Ball is actually noticeably better, but then again, it's a completely different kind of watch. The Ball turns heads at night, the Android during the day.
Any pics of your Ball?

I already knew Clinton is a watchguy. Today I came across this pic in the newspaper. The same watch I wear as a daily as many of you members might know. A JLC MC Navy Seals Alarm (only 1,500 produced)



Southlight, are you paying attention?

Cheers

Really want that watch to add to my JLC collection I seem to have going. But no more watches for me for a while, it's getting out of hand.... I still have to pick one up that I ordered a while back......

the worst part about watch is the amount of time it takes to get them delivered, the irony

Pam305/pam112

Just got the 305 a week or so ago. Made me dislike my 112 for some reason

Thanks, figured that would be how it would go down in the long run, I was just trying to be lazy.

and just FYI, my old man is a PAM collector, I think he has about 8-10, one of which is the 112 and another was the 305 that I now own. He still wears his 112 fairly often, even though all his other PAMs are major collectable ones like the fifty.

I think it's his work horse so he doesn't feel bad if he damages it or anything. And he still gets compliments on it regularly.

Beautifal watches!!!

I have come across a bunch of watches that I've considered, but I'm still saving for the Grande Reverso Duo.

Very happy with just my stainless Sub right now, which I wear ALL the time.

Thanks! the Rouge is a boutique only watch, so I think I probably have one of only a few in Canada as we don't have a Boutique here. I had it shipped to my dad in Colorado about a month ago and just got my hands on it yesterday. Was a long wait, but it's sitting nicely on my wrist right now making me smile.

As you can tell, I have a soft spot for the Reverso, so I whole heartedly recomend you get your hands on one if you want one. I don't normally like square/rectangle type watches, but I make exception for these

Is your sub with or without date?

It's a date Sub. I bought it from a local jewelry shop, where I've befriended the owner who is very knowledgeable about watches.

He calls me periodically when he comes across something I might like. He had a standard gold Reverso, but it was too small for my taste.

Realistically it's going to be a while before I can afford another nice watch. My taste has always outweighed my pocketbook! lol. Plus, now I have a girlfriend, just got another Ducati that I'm prepping for track use, there's just so much cool shit to spend money on!

lol so many toys, so little time, I know the feeling.

I've managed to elude having a girlfriend for a while now, so that's keeping the pocket book a little better balanced at the moment.

I'm glad you got the black sub, it looks a little nicer in my opinion then the white face, I've looked at them a few times, just can't pull the trigger for some reason.

Thanks for sharing! I went ahead and just bought one as well but in a 50mm version with the white face. Great looking watch and good deal!

how are you liking a watch with manual wind only?
Oh really
What kind of age group would sport a watch like the android?
When you guys say gf I imagine 20 something?

I'm a freshmen in college and my ex had bought me this watch for my last birthday and I think she may have been overcharged a bit.

And I can't get it uploaded aha.
