Wanted a cheap titanium, no maintenance 'dive' watch.

Picked this up recently: Citizen BN0141-53E



I like it a lot. An excellent value and very low key.

The light weight is a plus, as is the wetsuit adjustment. I like the band to be snug for daily wear, but the ease of adjustment is a nice touch when I'm wearing a wetsuit.

Looks nice! I've had a titanium Citizen Eco drive for about 15+ years. It was around the time the Eco Drive line was coming out...still kicking like a champ! No issues...ever.

I still cant figure out how I feel about the "cyclops" on a watch (The date magnifier). Even the legendary Rolex Submariner (which this Citizen is clearly an homage towards) has one...I think it was the original and held the patent. I'd be the guy who bought a $10k Submariner and pulled the cyclops off

Wait a minute, is that "peace sign" hand (I don't know what it is really called) for diving? I've always seen it on Rolex's and thought it was a Rolex thing.

"Cheesy ‘Swiss Mad’ watch on offer for one million euros

AFP | Published — Thursday 12 January 2017

ZURICH: A Swiss watchmaker on Thursday unveiled a one-million-euro “Swiss Mad” wristwatch with a case made of local winter cheese and a dial recalling the nation’s distinctive red-and-white flag.

The tongue-in-cheek edition by H.Moser targets new strictures on watchmakers using the “Swiss Made” label who now have to source 60 percent of the components domestically against 50 percent earlier.

The new law came into force at the start of this year. H.Moser has dropped the “Swiss Made” moniker since and said it would also release “the most Swiss watch ever created.”

The dial is smoked red with the four white lacquered indexes indicating every quarter of an hour.

The cheese fringing the case is Vacherin Mont d’Or medaille d’or, which is made in winter, and comes from the same village as Moser CEO Edouard Meylan. It is fortified with resin to hold up to use and time.

Moser said given the new rules “that are lax and insufficient, we respond with derision.”

The steep price tag — 1,081,291 francs ($1.0 million) — is a reference to the date the Swiss Confederation was set up: August 1, 1291.

“All proceeds from the sale of this watch will be used to create a fund to support independent Swiss watchmaking suppliers currently suffering under the difficult economic situation and outsourcing to Asia,” Meylan said.

The “Swiss Mad Watch” will be presented at the four-day international luxury watch show — Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie — which will be held in Geneva from Monday."

A watch subscription service LOL.

http://www.watchgang.com

Doesn't sound bad at all, actually. There are two tiers:

Quote :
"Watch Gang's Watch of the Month Club

Starting at $25/month for watches worth $50-$150. They are well made, generally using real leather and stainless steel with Japanese Miyota or Seiko movement. These watches are ideal for the collector looking to explore new microbrands at an awesome value. Eligible for the Rolex drawing every Friday."


Quote :
"Watch Gang Black

Starting at $91/month for watches worth $150 - $500. Watches range from very well known brands to premium microbrands. They generally use automatic / mechanical movements or Swiss Quartz. Overall, the watches are more for the "watch enthusiast" looking to discover an excellent timepiece at an amazing value. Limited memberships available. Eligible for the Rolex drawing every Friday."


They give out a Rolex every Friday... so if you get lucky, that would be totally amazing!
