The future is ORANGE!

Post by Amor Vincit Omnia »

Well, maybe not the whole future...I'm trying to work out what I had against orange watches :shock: The Orange Monster is a fabulous piece and will make a superb holiday watch :thumbup:
My first diver, my first piece of orange, and I'm very impressed! :D

And...it's got the days in Spanish - how bloody cool is that! :clap: :clap:

Just got to book the holiday now! 8)

Very cool......IF you're holidaying in Spain!


I love it. Thought of getting one of these myself but thought it was a bit too chunky, looks great though. Gotta get me a diver.......

Your pictures had me yearning for summer! Quite cold here now, minus 10 Celsius. Ugh.

Welcome to the Monster club, I'm not as brave as you though only own a black one. :D

Not for me- bulky..ish, but i once saw a properly sun bleached Orange monster and thought that had some kudos.
I miss all the great things that may never be.

Will do, tomorrow if I get time (25 French Oral exams and a Parents' Evening!)

Mike very kindly included a yellow hi-vis vest to go aound the bubble-wrap! I always have to take a school one when I take the kids on trips abroad, but now I have my own! Thank you Mike :thumbup: :thumbup: The Monster looks tame by comparison. I will try to get someone to take a shot of me + watch + vest. Pink shirt and tie to complete the effect? :lol:

... nice choice AVO. I'd have suggested it as a great diver, but your own suggestions (Amfibia and Mako) were so very different - funny old world :?

Good thinking.

Nice purchase too. Now you've broken the seal, as it were, on your dive watch category, I expect you'll find it as obsessing as all the other watch categories.

With all the prep and marking you must have to do it's a wonder you have time to even buy watches :D
