    How long does the lume last in the night if you were it on a average day

    Rolex has terrible lume. New ones are better but most any watch will beat it.

    Got this one as a present for my 16th birthday. Still rocking it 8 years later. I don't know the right model name, it's an all titanium Rodania and waterproof to 10 ATM. Back then, my parents took me to the jeweler's to pick one out and I chose this one because of the blue/purple dial (changes color under different lights). Never regretted it. As far as I can remember I had it in for a small repair only once a couple years back. Works perfect otherwise and has minimal wear.

    Leather or metal would look good on a Sub IMO, but that look is classic Bond. In one of the Bond movies (forget which one) James wears a stainless Sub with a black face on an 18mm MI6 regimental grey and black NATO band. Does it look understrapped? Absolutely. Is it a classic look from a great movie nonetheless? Yup.
    EDIT- It was Goldfinger.

    It's not often leather isn't sexy on a watch unless the watch is what's ugly Lol. Not the case here :p

    My Traser has been keeping terrible time recently
    I noticed it a few weeks after i got its battery changed

    It used to be dead accurate - im talking within 90 seconds a year (checked on a GPS based rally timing clock)
    Now its 5 mins slow after a week, the other night it was right when i went to bed, and 2 hours slow when i woke up

    So i am wearing my Casio MDV-102 all the time mow, at least until i get my old reliable traser fixed (it was almost 24/7 for 9 years, i suppose its about time it got more than a battery change)

    Heres the Casio i am wearing - a really cool watch with crappy lume, but with a torch built in

    How accurate is the altimeter? And does it need all the time to set air pressure?

    Anyone with silicone, plastic, or certain metal bands have issues with oder and have some sort of remedy besides washing it everyday?

    Psh can't shower during work even though that would be great during summer. Lol I hate silicone bands but can't change it.
