    My Dive card nearly beat us home, so great work from the CTI Dive shop and PADI. Now to log all my dives at the dive locker.

    My week... Let's see. I think I wore the D-Star until Monday night.

    Tuesday, a transitional day. Still a dive/adventure type watch but much smaller than the 42mms I've been wearing for the last two weeks.

    Wednesday back to a big watch, but only because I missed it a lot.

    Thursday a rare outing for this very small watch; mid-50s Gruen Precision on factory expandable bracelet.

    Today, more small and simple. After the Gruen I think this is my next smallest watch.

      Hi Henry!

      With a diameter of 43 mm and 53 mm lug to lug, my MForce isnīt really a beast.
      And the titanium makes it light weighted and comfortable in compare to a SS diver.

      AFAIK, "The Beast" for heavy and large SS-divers of different brands is used by sellers and
      watch enthusiasts only, not by any watch company.

        Unusual for me to pick a non-Rado, but this is just so beautiful.

          The one with the dial I generally don't like... That should have read "Even though...the 505 looks so good that..." etc.

            I don't have anything left of the Beast. I sent the paperwork and boxes on when I gifted it, but I am fairly certain that Orient specifically referred to that giant version of the M-Force as The Beast.

            I found a Worn and Wound article on an earlier iteration of it that seems to imply that I may be correct.

              A perfect piece of Bauhaus design.

                Thanks mate, they are a lovely watch and despite never having had this one serviced, I'm always pleasantly surprised to find it's still runs to within 4 or 5 seconds a day.
                As usual you've knocked it out of the park with your selection of watches. I'm with Henry in one respect, that I'm choosing your Lapis 505 combo, but in another respect I'm not, because despite the fact that I don't own any, I do like Lapis.

                  For my trip to Maryland mid-week, I chose a watch made by some guys in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, using a movement produced in the city of Lancaster, Pennsylvania:




                  I'm in a rut, it seems, but I'm enjoying it!


                  What a great rut to be stuck in Brad, I like all of these, especially your new diver, but I'm going with this one, a worthwhile project that ended in such a perfect result.

                    Thanks Henry, it's such a big bright watch, there's no mistaking when you have it on.

                    This week I'm going with your seldom seen vintage Gruen, such a nice design with those rounded lugs and a factory expanding bracelet! Very evocative of another era.

                        I did some digging and found this one Tim. Case is a bit over polished but I like the blue stone markers. 7C829285-5A12-494B-B142-2BF35F80CE90.jpeg

                          Many thanks, Tim. It's gratifying to own that watch, and all the RGM products I've had. The crew there really strive to stay true to the traditional methods and they have a keen eye for design.

                            A rare beast Kevin, very nice, hopefully there's another one out there somewhere.
