I'm wearing my Halios today.
I really like this watch because of the simple layout and ease of reading, even without my glasses.

Without glasses? You need sunglasses with that lume!

Another of my watches that is questionable but for whatever reason I have kept. I like the wrist band design, but not the case, movement is decent but barely so, and mineral glass that they chose to laser etch (thats what makes it seem to glow blue when light hits at the right angle) which seems like a large investment of time and effort for basic mineral glass.

Its a strange one, why I bought it of course, but peculiar in that half of it was done well (almost to an extreme) and half kind of so so. It does sit very well on the wrist and it keeps time surprisingly well. Auto wind is not particularly efficient but is functional over the course of a full days amount of moving around.

Anyways, thought I would share. I think the company that made this changed their name from Android to aragon, probably due to Google and Android, but that would be a guess.

Interesting share. It does seem like a bit of an odd duck, I get why there are conflicting feelings about it. :)

When the sun goes down I ONLY wear watches that use GTLS(Gaseous Tritium Light Source)..If your not familiar it is tiny glass vials filled with a radioactive isotope that glows as the molecules decay.It does NOT need a light source to "charge"it to glow..I used to have a dozen or so different watches using it but nowdays only 2 as I totally downsized my collection to a simple rotation of 4 watches..

A true ICON in dive watches has joined my humble collection...If you don't know the Seiko Orange Monster I dare say it is THE watch that put Orange on the map.Sure there where the vintage Doxas that cost an arm & leg,a few vintage Zodiacs etc..but the OM brought the colorway to the masses..NOT just an Orange watch but a real honest to goodness ISO6425 CERTIFIED,NOT just compliant,Seiko actually paid the fees to receive ISO6425 Full Certification on the SZEN series(Note the word SCUBA,not Divers as most compliant only divers are marked on dial)..This was a pro level dive watch that everyone could afford & looked like NOTHING else.....This piece was a limited Japan Domestic Market only version with a few upgrades adding the beautiful glossy Black Ion coating Seiko perfected in the Prospex series Tunas,hard,black plastic lume bases that REALLY make the dial pop & the change from "Divers"on the standard version to the Fully ISO6425 Certified "SCUBA"on the dial..
