By funny coincidence, earlier today I received an email from an ex-work colleague, Vaughan, who I hadn't heard from in a few years. He attached a wrist shot of the 7A38-706A I'd given him six years ago, as a combined 'Thank You' and birthday present (see my previous post on page 27). He still wears it and it's going strong.



I'm not sure if he remembered, but today is also my birthday, so what else should I wear this afternoon, but one of my 7A38-706A's (naturally, fitted with the same TSS Watchworx Aerosport Mk2 dark blue strap).

Something to brighten up this dull overcast morning - a 7A38-701B 'Vulcan'.

Giving my JDM 7A38-6050 SJS058 a quick Sunday afternoon outing. I'd forgotten what a bugger it was to photograph with the reflections off that domed crystal. :mad: Let's just say I took 'a few' shots before I eventually settled on this one - and it's still slightly out of focus. :roll:

I really don't expect any sympathy, but I have to admit, that in owning such a large collection of 7A38's, lately I find myself constantly having to replace their batteries. I went to put that 7A38-6050 away yesterday and noticed this 7A38-6070, two slots along, had just started doing the 'two-second two-step'. So I've just done this one.

Swapped that this afternoon for this JDM 7A38-6040 SJS038, which is much safer to wear, No need to worry about rubbing wear, being stainless. This watch has been 'homeless' since I fettled it and fitted the better bracelet. I need to reorganize my 'Divers' watch collection box to slot it in next to its black chrome coated sibling.
