So what kind of watch does everyone wear?

    Luminox. "Navy SEALS". My wife's idea. It's right twice a day; sometimes it runs all day for a few days. Yes, I replace the batteries, but there is something wrong with the watch. I have replaced the band several times, even "unbreakable" bands. I am not impressed by the watch, but more than once I've been asked "Is that a Luminox? Do you like it?". I respond "it's right twice a day and I'd never buy another one."

    I use the same one at work. I did replace the band for a Zulu strap, I like it a lot better than the resin band. Also wear a g shock g100-1bv blacked out, really like both watches.

    If you refer to the website, the Oyster Perpetual can be had in 26 (lady's), 31, 34, and 36mm. The 34mm models are the Air-King. The 36mm model can be had with either the smooth steel bezel or a fluted white gold bezel. Just going by the website, looks like you have to step up to the Datejust if you want the yellow gold fluted bezel (and two-tone bracelet).

    Yeah, I don't think I'll ever be buying a Rolex.

    You can get a new Omega Seamaster for less than half the price of the least expensive Rolex models.

    It's a $4 HK watch off eBay. I made the dragonscale band. Chainmaille is a hobby and I was just playing around.

    It looks a lot better than that crappy cell phone pic shows. The colors are way off.

    You made that band? That takes some serious talent, and I take back any perceived insult to your watch. Forgive me.

    Cops get in fights....and that happens in the streets. Long before I was a cop I did other things that paid off.

    Nothing shocking about it.

    Same weave as the band
    [​IMG]

    I'm not insulted at all. I thought it was hilarious to throw it in with all the multi$1K+ ones. :rofl:

    I don't wear it much. I can't leave it alone. The weave is so flexible that I find myself playing with it.

    You posted a pic of a tri-color chain that you made recently. I really likked it and wanted to get a couple of them made with a shoulder pad in the middle and clips to use it as a purse strap.

    Bad enough that I'm trying to think of something I could put it on!

    Ah. I know exactly what that one is. That's the weave that almost broke me trying to learn. I hadn't thought about purse straps but it would be great for that. It's tight enough it wouldn't pull open.

    I figured that one was a b****. I'd actually get it, if you make a purse strap like I want.
