The 9F as an adventure watch

Took the SBGN001 for a weekend jaunt. Hiking, snow, desert. It did great. The wear comfort on this 39mm size is fantastic.

Colors

Desaturated orange Barton band – I love this color.

Graduation watch

I chose this at Costco, and my then-girlfriend and mother both contributed to it.

Basic Seiko, 7T32 quartz with chronograph, alarm and lume dial. Served me all through grad school and Fermilab, only to be replaced by a Blue Angels Citizen when I started flying. I recently sent it to Seiko in NJ for a battery, gaskets and crystal and am rediscovering why I loved it. It’s just a wonderful, versatile, easy to wear thing that disappears on the wrist.

Basic Seiko

A seiko quartz isn’t going to impress anyone; it’s not a luxury item. More a superb functional with a design that takes time to appreciate.

SNE498. Good indeed.

And I can’t wait for my OWC to get back.

Next level color coordination

Spiffy, isn’t it? BluShark “AlphaShark Slim” 22mm camel NATO with PVD black hardware. As usual, I trimmed off the extra layer and shortened it to declutter.

I like it. Black on gold paired with the converse is pretty darn spiffy.

Friday casual

Actually dressed up, since I have a kid performing today. Omega on Barton quick release silicone, very comfortable.

Seiko Wednesday

I need to write a long post about this one. For now just a picture will have to do.

Tan suede

An interesting combo with a blue dial.

This is the Barton via Amazon. Good value at ~20USD.

Still not sure what I think of suede though.

Yes Equilibrium

So this arrived today:

That’s the Equilibrium, the new model from Yes Watches. I had a small but prolonged role as an engineering consultant and got to visit Hong Kong twice as part of it. I chose the shiny black titanium case and orange accents because by golly I’m proud and I want you to ask me about it!

It took years of engineering and manufacturing obstacles, and of course a world financial crisis too, that didn’t exactly help. Bjorn et al: ya done great.

And today is tax day, I’m finishing ours on TurboTax, where I work and also have a small role. I’m proud of that, too. 😉

Orange!

Happy Friday! Orange Watch Co 6538, orange Toxic royal strap, and my trusty orange hydro flask.

I really liked how this picture came out – shows the effectiveness of the antireflective coatings as well as the gleam of the applied markers. Those details that you get from a luxury watch.

And yeah, I quite like the color.
