    It's Wednesday. I just got out of the shower. Picked this for the aftDr noon.
    Repurchased case from a cheap Walmart watch. But the movement would not work reliably in the original case.

    That's a pretty nice looking watch! I had never heard of those before. Is that the 42mm or the 48mm version? How is it holding up

    Not sure what you're seeing.

    Also to @jcombs:

    It looks to me that the portion of the strap coming off the case, lying over the edge of the countertop is upside down. Looks like the leather coming off the bar was put on with the hemispherical edge of the leather coming up from the bottom rather than down from the top. In other words, that hemisphere is dark and smooth looking to me, like the strap coming off the top lugs of the watch. With the rest of the strap extending over the counter edge being lighter.

    Or am I confusing a shadow somehow? I just looked again and now wonder if I am seeing some sort of shadow of the watch and thinking of something that is an illusion??

    Some days I confuse myself...

    L'chaim!

    One of the older clarity faces. I love it. Tons of info without having to go to widgets.

    That must be it. It was taken on a window sill in very bright sunlight so the shadows may be creating an illusion that you are seeing. I can't see it but that doesn't mean it's not there.

    Samsung S3, love this watch. Changing faces is a snap and gives me the chance to have a new watch virtually every day. I like the features of it, being able to see email and text messages at the flick of a wrist, as well as many others. It's just a great watch...I also frequently wear one of two G-shock watches but the S3 is my usual go to.[​IMG]

    My first mod. Started life as the Seiko snk809 and has the following upgrades:

    •Dagaz hands and dial
    •Sapphire crystal
    •Swapped the 7S26 movement for an NH36 (hacking and hand winding)

    I'll be polishing the case this weekend. All in all pretty happy with it...

    @ballistic...I didn't know Seiko was putting the shroud on the "5" series watches.

    First time I've seen that. Is that something new, or did you just mod it to add that?

    The "X" (Prospex) series have them (like mine above), as do the Marine Masters, but I'd never seen one on a '5'. I sure do like the 5's, but unfortunately they're just too small for me.

    No mods, it's an original SKZ255K1 I got in 2009.
