It is a cheap and cool watch. There must be enough of us to fill this thread with at least a couple of pictures?  :D

Ps: Forgot to attach the file...  :facepalm:

I've always thought they were a neat watch but have not yet obtained one.  Is yours an auto?  Does it keep decent time?

Mine gains around a minute per week. I think that is just fine for such a cheap watch.

All these watches are automatic.

Finally decided to give mine a shot after using it occasionally, been using it for 3 weeks now and it works better than I expected. I have switched the OEM folded sheetmetal bracelet for a polished solid one, which match the case quite well. Already got a few scratches on the crystal though.  :(

I think I will repaint the dots between 12 and 4 on the bezel to red.

The Amphibias have plastic crystals, meaning they are very easy to polish...

It's deep enough to catch fingernail, so will never fully polish out unfortunately, only less visible.

I had a scratch that caught a fingernail and I managed to polish it out with toothpaste in about 5 min. If not, a new crystal is about 6€ and I think it is easy to change...  :D

Try Polywatch.

It'll remove a small layer but turns it into a fluid, which will fill up any deeper scratches.
When it hardens back out, zero scratches visibile :tu:
