My dad and I got the e9 and 02 out for a cruise yesterday, this felt like the right watch for the day.

Picked this up at an estate sale Sunday for $20. I will probably sell it for a nice little profit but I am enjoying it for now.

what's your thoughts on victorinox WRT quality and durability. i've seen a number of their quartz models under $300 that i really like but i already have a few beaters and not sure i want to replace any of them yet without knowing these would hold up.

Hi,
Thanks for your question .Victorinox makes really solid watches that can handle daily rigors of life to me .
For instance : That watch being a PVD coated case has not lost its coating and shows no scratches either . It's not my daily beater but I am not babying it at all when I wear it as well .
I also have a quartz diver Victorinox . It's also a solid timepiece .I have hit it a few times against the top of the glass of jar while trying to reach the almonds . (It's a different story ).
I wouldn't attempt this on a Rolex albeit Rolex is also robust watch but you know it's not a cheap one and I would not like to scratch it for trifle things .
Well, back to Victorinox ,only downside for me is their bracelet quality. The watch case is very durable and you can feel it when you handle it but bracelet is some sort of failing to match the overall quality of the watch .
Last but not least , as far as I know, Victorinox Diver models can handle a free fall from 1 meters or 2 meters .I think they can do it given their case thickness

My new project today. Bought it cheap on ebay, but it needs a little love. I have all new gaskets, pusher springs, and a crystal on the way.

Couldn't resist when I took my X3M40i in for service. Fun look. Adds to my full range of watches.

I had a buddy that wanted to buy this so I let him borrow it for a few weeks. We met up at a car show Saturday and he was wearing it. I realized that I would miss it too much so I am going to keep it and probably build him a blue one. Haha.
