It’s not a meme boys. 2 weeks in and this watch is perfect, wear it in the shower, at the pool, at work. It wakes me up in the morning with its alarm beeps. Did nato strap it though, I find them comfy.

I use this, would not reccomend, it is a small 200m wr quartz field watch that weighs 24 grams and has seiko tier lume, but you gotta import it from Japan, and the price is the same as that famous citizen ecodrive field watch.
>>
>>1512334
The crystal scratches pretty easily and there's no manual wind. It's low profile and has an 18mm strap but it isn't the best sports watch. Factor a replacement band into the cost because the canvas it ships with isn't good. I took the canvas off and slapped it on a Casio dive watch.

>>1512350
factory straps on these also lick ass and factor into the cost.
>>
>>1515460
Sucks. It was only 45 USD, but I'd like to have it last five years.
>>1515575
No joke. The crystal has light scratches after only two months
But what is that, so long as it's still readable. Same for the band. Canvas is comfy, and I'll gladly pay $5-15 when this goes.

How's the print on that Bible? I've heard good things about the translation, but poor about quality control. Blank pages, typos, and whatnot.
I've a New American (Vatican II celebration), but the scholarly nature of the translation has removed some of the poetry. RSV sounds like a nice comparison, and my nephew's getting to an age where we can read large print together.

I put the prg-270 on a 24mm nylon band that I notched to fit the lugs (I dont like the way nato straps go under the watch body). I absolutely love this watch, and it doesn't feel as big on the wrist as you would think for 52mm. 10/10 cannot recommend enough for $90

NRSV CE is a good translation, I think it strikes a decent balance between poetry and meaning. As for the print, this was a gift and I use a study bible of the same translation for actual reading. I didnt notice anything wrong the few times I looked through this one though.

U could get a solar watch and not worry about the battery dying either, or one with wave-ceptor functionality so you don't have to adjust it ever. Though a regular quartz with a solar battery would also be more acccurate in that kind of situation.

I've got the prg-300 here which is basicly the non atomic clock sync version of the prw-3000. Though I would advise you one thing: don't buy one with a negative display like pic related. They have really bad sunlight legibility. And for me the twice as high price of the W version didn't make sense, I bought mine used off ebay in immaculate condition for like 80 euros.

I see what you're getting at, but how is believing something despite tons of evidence to the contrary not a serious mental illness?
>>
>>1522415
There is evidence. Do you need witnesses? In the last century? How about tens of thousands? Do you need photographic proof too?

Check out Miracle of the Sun, or Our Lady of Zeitoun. Or Eucharistic miracles.

You'll shift goalposts to explain those away, so at that point consider more intellectual arguments like the First Mover.

I don't expect you to believe now or any time soon, but I can say that after a few years of open mindedness, debate and research that I lost my fedora.
>>
>>1522428
No one is moving the goal posts. It's just that the """evidence""" that your ilk presents has no basis in science. It's purely a he said, she said, thing. Witnesses are also useless in this context because they interpret whatever they see based on their religious beliefs. We need actual physical evidence, and we need that evidence to be looked at by people who aren't already entrenched in their delusions and only see what they want to see.

I've had a timex expedition field watch with indiglo lighting. Couple of things to note. It ticks really loudly. Also the indiglo lighting broke after half a year. Also the leather strap was shit and disintegrated in a couple of years. For the price it was, it was nice though and the battery lasted for like 5 years for the first time. I still have it, though I don't wear it anymore.

Anywhere, you don't care where you go, as long as there are faithless you can make believe need help, and that you have the cure, of your intentions I'm sure. I can't bring it all to reason, you've convinced these people that all their ancestors were wrong; disoriented, they do not know where they belong.

Not who you replied to, but you got my attention for a moment.

>Miracle of the Sun

Three shepherd kids get visited by white lady who repeatedly reappears to them, tells them predictions of the future including their own near death (caused by her own apparition btw, radiation is a bitch), before she lastly appears before thousands of people near Fatima in Portugal, where she is seen in a dull metal disc surrounded by a glow, dancing over the sky like a butterfly, shining drying rainbow light on all witnesses that were wet from an earlier rain.

Personally, I take that account as authentic and for that very reason I disagree with you wholeheartedly that it has anything to do with your religion at all. The pope did not head the advice of the "lady mary" who appeared there and revealed the three secrets in time to humanity, so the head of church directly disobeyed the holy mother and will of god? Bullshit to the extreme. Plus, your made up religion does not match up with the facts, which are a metal craft in the sky and some white lady in it. Whoever that was, she was corporeal and needed technology to get here and do what she did. Miraculous? Maybe, certainly impressive given our current state of technology. Supernatural or divine? Nothing points at that.

Same goes for the sighting at Zeitoun. Anyone having some form of advanced tech level can create apparitions like that and even the Hebrew Tanakh only mentions technological means by which Malakim visit humans (Esekiel, Enoch, etc.).

The guy I use for watch repairs told me it's between 2 and 7 years. They are great when you don't have to change them regularly (as in per year or two) but after 5 or 7 years they will Need a replacement. At that point it will be an expensive battery and service. He said usually that the cost of a rechargeables is higher compared to changing a typical battery on a yearly basis, and most watches go on for two years.
It's a cool technology but not a solution...

You have a rechargeable car battery, that is to be changed every 5 years so the electronics are not getting a hit by a bad battery.

Amphibia is a good bang for your buck, but I only see them in a pristine condition. As if they are kept indoors and under a sleeve.

They have a soft crystal - get scratched easily.
The case is soft too - can get dings when you knock it on stuff. I usually slam my watches accidentally on door frames.

They are ready to work with, keep decent time, have a nice power reserve, often a date comp, easy to find mods and swap around parts from other watches.

Not a Holly Grail. Seiko 5 are better IMHO.
>>
I really like Timex Ironman series. Buttons are larger compared to small casios. Not as bulky as the large gshock. Much easier to read too.

If you set up 3 alarms and two timers you can have constant reminders 5 times per day. That's a great feat: the watch informs you of passing time without you having to check it on occasion. Good for adventure running, medicine taking, a lot of s,it if you think about it. All while your eyes are looking elsewhere.

No sentimental value whatsoever. Bought it from a guy for 40$ who kept it in a drawer since his grandfather passed away in ‘70something. Was given to him for his retirement in ‘68 and has the date engraved to prove it. I guess the guy didnt really understand what he had. Since Ive had it, it hasnt lost more than 3sec per day if I dare to say so (knock on wood)
