a quick fits post of the new section with my five recent arrivals

first up:
POIBOS WAVE
nh35 MOVEMENT
SAPPHIRE AR COATED CRYSTAL
44MM WIDE INC CROWN
A VERY NICE WELL MADE WATCH FROM A NEW AND UNKNOWN BRAND





HAMTUN H1 DIVER
NH35 MOVEMENT
SAPPHIRE AR COATED CRYSTAL
44MM WIDE INC CROWN
TITANIUM
ANOTHER VERY NICE WATCH FROM AN UNKNOWN BRAND
BASED IN SOUTHHAMPTON......HENCE THE NAME: HAMTUN
AS AN ADDED BONUS: No2 OF 200






ADI IDF [ ISRAELI DEFENSE FORCE ] GIVEN OUT TO MILITARY PERSONEL
SEIKO QUARTZ
MINERAL CRYSTAL
42MM WIDE
IDF LOGO ON THE DIAL
THESE ARE MADE ON A KIBBUTZ OR MORE LIKELY ASSEMBLED THERE, ADI USED TO USE REBRANDED SEIKO'S AND I SUSPECT THESE ARE STILL SEIKO MADE [ALL BE IT FROM CHINA]
THE SEIKO INFLUENCE IS STRONG IMO AND THE LUME IS UP THERE WITH SEIKO AS WELL





MILITARY WATCH INDUSTRIES...SUB
44MM INC CROWN
ANOTHER RUNNING THE NH35
MINERAL CRYSTAL
A SURPRISINGLY GOOD WATCH FOR THE MONEY IMO, BUT NEEDS A BRACELET Crying or Very sad
I TRIED TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE MAKER AND IT WAS LIKE FOLLOWING A RABBIT DOWN A RABBIT HOLE, FIRSTLY THE PAYPAL PAYMENT WENT TO AN ONLINE CASINO GROUP BASED IN GERMANY ALTHOUGH THE SELLER/AGENT WAS BASED IN JERSEY, BUT THE BRAND IS REGISTERED IN CANADA FOR A WATCH THAT IS CLEARLY CHINESE MADE Shocked Very Happy







MARATHON US GOV/MILLITARY ISSUE
ETA 2824-2 MOVEMENT
SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL
TRITIUM GAS TUBE HANDS AND DIAL MARKERS
45MM WIDE INC CROWN
NICE TOUGH LOOKING WATCH WHICH DESPITE ITS LOOKS WEARS QUITE SMALL

its a very nice well made watch Andy, not big and in your face like others i have, quite subtle for a diver plus the Titanium case and bracelet help in the regard.
i am on the fence with Ti, its got a greater tensile strength than steel but is as light as plastic, its also a very hard metal to work as in cutting, machining, brushing or polishing............but...it marks as easy as Aluminium Crying or Very sad which is a pain if you have OCD like me.......there is a popular rumour about Ti that it "self heals" this is just not true! if you scratch Ti it will leave a very shiny mark and over time [ a long time ] the Ti will oxidise within the scratch helping to dull it down but it will alway be there even after 100 years so no self healing Wink
its a very light watch and easy to forget your wearing it, but then i forget about my heaviest watch within 5 minutes so dont see it as an advantage although i am sure others will. the Ti also gives the watch an unusual colour.....a dull satin grey.
the one i have has a bracelet some think is a pain to size because of the screwed links, it doesnt bother me but the next model the H2 ?? has a split pin bracelet which is a step back IMO
i would say its a good buy as its not an expensive watch in the scheme of things and they seem to hold their value quite well which can only be good Very Happy

Some very impressive watches in the collection I really like the Marathon I think it has something to do with the 24HR dial I have a real fancy for them at the moment.

This could be a great section for me seeing as though Divers or Diver style are mainly the only type of watches I buy . I shall post a few photos and descriptions this week .
