Day 89.

A Casio MDV106-1A Marlin Diving watch. I think one of the best values in the watch world. You get a nice quality 20 Bar diver for way under a hundred.

Day 90.

Another landmark day. Hard to believe I started this back in mid June...90 days ago. Yikes.

Anyhow, today, a Tevise automatic watch. This one is a bit hard to get a good photo of because the glass is very domed. However, that also causes a neat affect when you are looking at the watch from any angle. I changed the bracelet for a black mesh job that fits the watch nicely.

Here I am entering the Station Mall.

Day 91.

Another Oulm watch...this time called a Russian Aviator. An interesting dual time watch consisting of a normal watch south, and a jump disk watch north.

A self portrait in one of the workplace staff washrooms.  :rofl:



I think everyone can learn from how the students evacuate a school at the end of a day. It would make every courier service proud.  :D



Walking to my vehicle.

Well now mostly done. Still have 10 automatics to go through however.  :facepalm:

Come to think of it, I can't wait to finish this challenge. Taking photos of a different watch each day sounded fun..but it is wearing me down with the gradual grind of it. The end is in sight...that is if I do not buy anymore watches.  :ahhh.

Day 96.

An M.T.O member sold a limited number of watches that he had made a while back. I bought one of them and have never regretted it despite moisture entering the watch somehow. Never got the watch remotely wet. I have noted that the issue is getting worse with time (the fogging on the inside of the crystal). I am thinking I may have to take this sweet looking automatic to a local Jewelers to see if they can do anything for it. What I do know, is that the moisture is really bugging me, and wearing the watch for a full day only exasperate that notion.

Here I am on my break before the cafeteria gets full of students.



I got Z.A2.04.
