A nice easy to read / wind watch and I also like the red sweep second hand. I imagine the lume will be quite strong too. Very Happy

i have to admit....i have 5 of them [ or 6 Smile ] and they are very well made, the movements are a Citizen design and bomb proof, i always assumed [ wrongly ] that they would have chrome plated cases, but they are stainless steel..........i suppose chrome over brass wouldn't do well in a hot sweaty climate. one things for sure there are certainly a lot of them about and most are now probably sporting re-painted dials and there is also a huge range of dial colours Very Happy
these are mine, i am 99% sure the dials are original as the finish is so good


sadly i dont wear them as i find them a bit small, but i do like them Wink

That's a pity because you nearly have a watch for each day of the week. I like all the colours and dial design. Albeit not worn it's still a nice set of watches to have in your collection. Very Happy

The Lume on the hour and minute hand is really good sadly though the markers on the dial are just painted and not lumed .

Pro's

Extremely easy to read dial and keeps really good time for such a cheap watch I think I paid less than £5 for this and it came from India .

I would say IMO that this is a multi use watch as in it could be worn casual like today on a nato strap (I will come to the strap later) but also if changed to a leather then could be wore as a dress watch

Con's

Not the watch but again strap problems I have not been able to get away with wearing a Nato style strap as they do not sem to sit right on my wrist they always go to one side



So today I thought for a change and please do not throw stones at me but I decided to wear the watch on the inside of the wrist Shocked  now some may say that this would increase the chances of the crystal getting damaged but in my case being in a wheelchair it is actually reduced as when worn correctly I am forever scraping watch crystals against door frames



Lack of lume on the dial is a bit of a downfall but not really a big problem . Overall the Jawan is a keeper

That's good news & I'm amazed that it stands you less than a fiver, what a great buy.

I don't really wear natos and had to rely on a YouTube video as I recall to show me how to fit one. scratch I thought though that they could be adjusted to position them the way you would like.

the trouble is, as i am sure you have noticed is the strap goes under the watch and lifts it high off the wrist, this makes it top heavy and prone to slipping to one side unless you wear it quite tight, i cant stand them personaly and i also dont like the "rash" they leave on a caseback......but then... i am a grumpy git Very Happy

I was thinking it was the position of the fittings rather than the weight of the watch causing the strap to slip. I did come across this but don't know if it's much help. scratch

Yup, this one definitely merits a turn.

Bit of a dodgy confession though not wearing a watch for two days, what's the world coming to. Sad lol!

It would seem very strange not to be wearing a watch. I do sometimes think I shouldn't be looking at or buying any more but haven't, as yet, been able to put that into practice. Shocked

Re: Watch Rotation

Back on with the rotation and as today is a gym day I thought I would introduce my gym watch an Adidas ADP1152F this is sold as a multi function fitness watch I can not remember buying it but it was many years ago . The watch has numerous features of which I do not know how to use half of them Chrono , My Log , Light , alarm oh and it tells the time Very Happy After reading the back of the caseback it states it is 100m water resistant.

The main reason I wear this to the gym is because the watch has a rubber strap which is ideal for when I am sweating plus I am not too bothered if this watch gets knocked or banged .

Looks good and very practical with the easy to read digital display. Like yourself I would struggle to be able to use all the functions. It's bad enough working out how to set the time etc again when the battery gets changed. Rolling Eyes
Sounds like this is another watch that is safe from the "to go" list. cheers

This one will not be going on the naughty list lol. not going to be doing Pro's and Con's for the adidas reason being I can not think of many ,, one rather unusual plus is the strap and keeper . The keeper has a hole in the middles of it and the strap has a raised piece on it which fits perfect into the keeper .. good idea I like

Haven't seen that strap design before, pretty clever. Might have been tempting trying it on another watch but as it's an exact fit for the case it's unlikely to fit anything else. Shocked

On with a Rotary Quartz today The leather strap it came on was too small for me so changed it to a plain black nato

Very nice I automatically think "Seiko" when I see watches like this so it is nice that it's a Rotary. Do you find the nato strap comfortable on that watch? One of these black rubber straps would suit it I think as would a bracelet or mesh bracelet. Very Happy

The nato on it is really comfy I wear it a little loose . I agree though a rubber would suit it I think I have a spare in a drawer I might try on it

They have but I will say I have parted with one today and you will be shocked when you find out which one it is . I did come close to parting with another as well until a wise man talked some sense into me .

Hope it's not the jump hour watch though it would be more of a shock if it's a Seiko. Shocked Glad that you avoided parting with a second watch today even if it's likely to be a temporary stay of execution. Rolling Eyes Have you set your sights on something else or was there just an opportunity today to part with one?

Had my Adidas watch on earlier as it was gym day today but after my shower I switched over to my very unusual Bewell watch the reason I say unusual is because it is made from wood Shocked

I must admit when I first opened the christmas wrapping I thought what is this toy watch but then I put it on my wrist and it was like an instant love affair Embarassed extremely light on the wrist and with being a quartz it has no complication of setting the time it can simply be ready and worn

Ticks all the boxes for a keeper for all the right reasons. Very Happy I meant to ask what the strap is like, it looks to have the same grained effect of the wood which is pretty smart.

I will not be posting in this Topic for some while now as I know where my collection is heading I have some idea of what stays and what goes . The main reason I will not be posting for a while is because I received this today and it will not be leaving the wrist for quite some time

It's been very interesting & I've enjoyed following this thread with the potential keepers cheers and the unfortunate possible "to go" Sad watches.

I must admit that I liked them all as there was a diverse mix of design, age and technology. Very Happy

Your new watch is fantastic and invariably when you get something that special it is glued to the wrist for some time. I hope you get a lot of pleasure / enjoyment from it and will look forward to seeing some more pictures of it in future threads.
