    Rained sideways :(


    Really like the new HydroConquest but such a shame they don't do it in 39/40mm any more and they're all 42mm. This is just a little too big for what was originally perfect size for the style and purpose.

    I love the new hydro ceramic. Would be tempted in a year when 2nd hand market is better.

    Just out of interest why are you always taking them off and how long do you usually have between wears?

    My new watch, a Garmin Fenix 6X Pro. Swapped the Apple Watch S5 for it. Would've liked to keep both but seems a bit daft.

    There's a lot i miss from the Apple Watch, especially the cellular data aspect and the higher value Apple Pay, but hoping this helps me push forward with running. Plus i much prefer how big it is and how it looks more watch like, just need to pick up a nicer strap now.

    Would've much preferred the Steel Grey coloured Sapphire version, but got such a good deal on this one that i could'n't justify the extra £200.

    I have Citizen Eco Drive titanium; they are really really nice watches; super light, really uncanny when you put it on! Despite having quite a few others, it's probably my most worn watch, since it's.... on time all the time :)

    I am a bit ambidextrous and weird so I wear my watch on my right wrist. But when I'm on my PC I take it off. in fact I don't like wearing it when i'm home much at all. And sometimes I don't go out for a couple of day. ha.

    That's pretty cool, I like the look of that spring drive they use.

    I wonder if they'll have some other Seiko lines too - like Credor or maybe other non-Grand Seiko models that use the spring drive?

    Have the 5 plus.

    Great watches.

    Apple are comical.

    These are real out door watches

    Yeah it's been great. Although i imagine the feedback/analysis side will only really kick in after 2 weeks when it's got more data. At the moment everything is in the red and it's telling me my estimated marathon time is hilariously slow!

    I was looking at the 5 Plus, but the extra memory for music and increased battery life seemed worth it.

    Indeed.
    Last time I went it did feel strange having the Seiko section then the GS in the back, but it was also quite refreshing to have a watch boutique that wasn't snooty.
