Re: WRUW

Visiting the Atlanta Christkindl Market tonight.
Definitely way bigger than it has been in prior years.

My green dial Orient Tri Star seemed festively appropriate.

Here's another video from Just One More Watch reviewing a Vario with that movement. It is smoother than most quartz, but not precisionist smooth, IMO

Re: CANCELED : Brand Direct: Atticus Watches - Adventure Series

Re: CANCELED : Brand Direct: Atticus Watches - Adventure Series

Re: 2020 Monthly Watch Challenge
