Have fun.



Yet another day with the Ranger on Zuludiver camo.

Thanks! I think I'll take it to the local pay and play golf course: plenty of fresh air swings down there! :lol: Cast your mind back please: when the chrono has run for 45 minutes did it just stop?
EDIT: Ah yes, here we are,
"After 48 minutes, the stopwatch will stop automatically."

And it has the worst lume of any Seiko I have ever owned. :silent:

Quick walk with the dog, decision to wear it to work or not. I think leave it fully charged and see how it is by teatime.
I suspect this could fall into the category of "I like the dial but not enough...".

Great watch! Why did you opt for the no-second hand version?

I had looked at loads of 2nd hand ones, and the prices to be honest, were not far off the new ones.
The new, and I believe for ME, the better movement in this 560 was the way to go.......and then
there is of course, the manufacturers guarantee.
I bought from an authorised, and I have to say, superb dealer, so no worries there.
Therefore I am the first owner, and any,....dare I say it, little scrapes with it, will be mine, and my memories.

Oh, I did try the Panerai titanium’s on in November, and the 351/352 were, I thought super.
However, when loads and loads were bought out for me to try in March ( yep what ever one I wanted to try,
it came), the best one for me, was actually this 560. It fitted me so well too ( wrist circumference is 185 / 190mm)
I think, it is nice, plain & simple, plus the 8 day hand wind movement is super.
To me, a typical Panerai. The Radiomirs were nice, but not for me at that time. OK yes,they
are large, but crikey are they clear to my poor ole eyes...

Sooooooooooo, that was my choice, and good luck with what ever choice you make :thumbup:
Keep us posted !

Tried to mix it up with a Phoenix G10 grey NATO strap.
