    @jwwilker Nice looking Speedmaster. What's the background on the watch? ie year, etc.

    Thanks! It was a wedding present from my wife (we were married in 2015). We don't have an AD here (Memphis, TN), so she snuck up to Nashville to purchase it. I was completely floored when she gave it to me...I had always mentioned it to her when we saw ads or pictures, but never thought she would purchase it outright. She did amazing, considering she knows nothing about watches (she had no idea I'd want the Hesalite version instead of the sapphire) and absolutely nailed it.

    I've got it on a B&R Bands Le Mans Racing strap currently.

    That's a fantastic story @jwwilker. What an awesome wedding present too! The strap looks nice. Really compliments the watch.

    The new release is pretty cool, but it doesn't do it for me like the first Speedy Tuesday release. That thing makes me drool

    I've gone over to the dark side....



    I mentioned in an earlier thread that I was going to buy a Garmin Fenix 5S.

    I did... and wore it for a while... and it was ok.... Functionally speaking, it was great. But it was heavy, it was chunky, and the lugs were extremely long to accommodate the proprietary quick change strap system. Despite being "only" 42mm (small for a smart watch/HRM/GPS watch), it was still too big to wear comfortably under a shirt cuff due to being quite thick and blocky in shape.

    So I ended up going to my local sporting goods store to try out alternatives, and ended up finding the Forerunner 645. Basically the same module but a different case. Despite being bigger on paper (42.5mm vs 42mm), the Forerunner 645 actually wears quite a bit smaller because it is thinner, lighter, with much shorter lugs (that take standard 20mm straps), and a domed bezel shape.

    I stuck this on a cheapo mesh strap and have had a hard time wearing anything else since. Gonna sell my Fenix on Craigslist since it is the kind of thing I might actually have a shot at selling locally (outdoor recreation and fitness is big here).

    I'll be interested to know how you get on long term with the Farer, once the honeymoon period wears off. Their watches look interesting but then the same thing that makes them attractive (bright colors) also makes me think they might not be as versatile as your standard dials.

    I just picked up something I probably shouldn't have but have been meaning to try for a while. Can't wait for it to arrive. All I will say is - white dial, titanium, very unique movement.
