This is the finest example I've ever seen as a complete package.. Owner was in Vietnam during the war and made the purchase in between tours.. He has since passed and left it in care of his wife she later passed on to her son. A precious possession from the past.

It will be with an Omega or Rolex.

How does the Fitbit work and is it worth the money?



No watch or bracelet for me. Never have liked them. They always seem to be getting in the way or on my nerves for various reasons.

This is my second Garmin watch. I've had the Fenix 2 and now this the Fenix 3 HR. Neither of them had a bad battery at all especially considering the features I use on them daily.

The Fenix 2 lasted 13 days out at NTC in CA and was used multiple times a day for GPS and getting grids for targets and as an alarm clock and timer.

The Fenix 3 HR is a step counter and all day HR monitor. Use it daily for different types of workouts, bike rides, runs, walks, kayaking etc. and only charge it about once a week if that.

Does the Fenix 3 require a chest strap for HR??

My uncle bought it while in the military overseas. After his death my dad got it and wore it for 20 years(every day watch).

My father passed in 1993 and it has been on my wrist all day every day since then. Amazing time piece with a lot of sentimental value.

It's not very big in size. 36mm and really super easy to wear. Originally sold for about $150 bucks. I'm a fan because it runs without batteries, automatic and gains power by everyday movement of your arm. Keeps perfect time..

I'm working with a friend to do a custom camo for hunting this year...

I received this watch after my father passed away in 2008. The watch was bought by my mother for him in the early 70's specifically because of the anti magnetic resistance as a few trips to a job site he had to some turbine work he was doing in a hydro electric dam wasted a few watches and credit cards. The watch stayed on his wrist daily for 30+ years until his death and had been around the world more than once, with Antarctica being the only continent it hasn't touched. When I received the watch, it came without any pomp or circumstance, just the watch head on a plain velcro band (the kind you can buy 10 for $5.00). Just like my old man; all steak, no sizzle. I did eventually source the correct band and end links and now is stays with me. A daily reminder of him.

Switch between a gshock and a citizen. Some day I might get a Rolex or similar! Not quite in bank account right now
No pictures of either right now. The gshock is sure beat to crap though! Welding doesn't agree with the face.
