So, after going without a watch for two years, I saw this Invecta on Amazon: waterproof to 900′ , $109 bucks. I gave in and bought it. But it weighs 15 lbs and the damn metal bracelet is sized for gorillas. I can buy a kit to drive out the pins and adjust it, take it to a jeweler and pay a third its purchase price to have the wrist band shortened or dig further in my tool chest and find a way to deal with this.
I’m going for door number three, but it’s an excellent lesson in not succumbing to Internet shopping lust.
