Not a fan of nylon or fabric as it makes me sweat like a bugger and eventually the damn things stink. I have a watch with a Velcro nylon strap and not only does it make me sweat but it scratches like hell too. I have a Skagen with a really comfy silicone strap but they get manky quite quickly.

While I'm here.....anyone on here have a spare link for a Bi-Metal Tag Pro 2000? The link near the clasp if possible? Just a chance.....

Does anyone know anything about Invicta watches? They don't seem very expensive, and I've seen one that I really like:

Well. Not once in all the photos and web pages did I think of it as "ginger". And yet your mind went straight there.

Looks like a knock-off Rolex, because it is. And it's ginger.

Looks like a knock-off Omega Seamaster to me. How much is it? (cba google) and have you had a look at https://www.steinhartwatches.de/en/diver-watch.html

Why would they do that? Why would they move the bezel forward 57 clicks and leave it like that before taking a picture? For that reason alone I will not buy it.

Otherwise, of course, you will run out of air if you accidentally knock it whilst diving. Not, of course, that anyone in their right mind would put their life in the hands of a cheap beater.

What are you waiting for? I've spent more than that on a round of drinks (sadly): if YOU like it, get it.
