    Thanks [MENTION=13399]DocDave[/MENTION]. Same era, the other grandfather today. I've had it for about a year but it's the first time I've ever worn this one; an Elgin Sportsman with sunburst dial on a classic twist-o-flex.

    It hasn't been out in a while, but here's another shot of the vintage Nivada Grenchen that belonged to my grandfather...

    I like it a lot. I was torn between this and the Seiko Samurai and it just felt so clunky next to this. It is a little too dressy for some NATO straps but I have no regrets.

    Man, every time I see one of the new Seikos I want one. My Orient Ray recently stopped working and it's probably not worth the cost to repair it.
    I’m sure there is! I was torn between an Orient and this but when this watch was on such a good deal from Macy’s I had to pick it up. Around $170 OTD.

    Super cool! Thanks for the info, I never knew stuff like this was possible.

    Today I'm wearing my trusty brass Timex Expedition Field watch with a brown ilcea museum calf strap I got off some guy on Reddit. It's a bit big for my wrist, but it's Friday so I don't mind dressing down haha.

    This is one of my favorite watches I own. Looks great on NATO straps, too. Mine made it through Army Basic Training and years of abuse. Looks better when it’s beat up, too.

    Thanks. And scratch builds can be much less frustrating than some mods... when the bits and pieces are all sourced up front, ready to go, and actually fit together!
