One for the Nato / Zulu lovers (and haters). No, that's not a scratch, but a cat hair.

To say the bezel needs fixing implies that it is broken. In reality it was being used to time the garden hose. To suggest that the bezel is broken is to suggest that the watch is merely a fashion accessory, and not a tool. What a strange idea, using a watch as a timer. Weird :D

And to think I expected anti-zulu replies, not crooked bezel replies. I love this place and the smiles it brings!

'Tis not the bezel that disturbs one... more the unusual placing of the watch on the wrong wrist, not being the right one. That said, it is a lovely combination.

I think weird is probably a fair description. I like Zulus though and have a couple of Rhinos. Now there is a proper watch strap. I think my arm would break before the strap! 

Good Man Downer!! By the way The strap shop uses that watch as a 'model' for several of their 'elite' range of straps.

A good way of getting a feel for what various straps will look like on it. :D

It's definitely on the right wrist, not being on the left :lol:. Being left handed, I've always worn my watches on my right wrist.

Friday and Saturday night at work. Calls for something cheap that can tolerate some potential abuse. Perfect chinese watch weekend!

Yup, crooked bezel on this one too. Not for any reason other than to give Nathan seizures :shock: . The bezel on the Alpha is a little loose, so it tends to move a bit through the course of the day. I'm too lazy to keep returning it to 12.
