OK then...

Yes, this appears to be spam. But I'm not deleting it as an object lesson - don't skimp on the language translation software.

Spammers intentionally use gibberish like that to confuse anti-spam software.

Put that through the right encryption software and you may be able to break the code. Looks like lots of words masquerading as thought.

I'll PM Blast to see if he can remove it.

Think of Blast as the Sheriff and me as his patrol deputy. Around The Campfire is my beat. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have a concern.

I bought a Rolex Explorer back in B.C. days (before children). It started losing minutes per day so I have set it aside until I can get it maintained (yes, about $750 so it may be a a while). In the interim (however long that may be) I have found the automatics at CountyComm to be very satisfactory. The "superluminova C3" (I had to look this stuff up) is exceptionally bright with only minimal sun (or flashlight) time. Frankly I don't have a lot of operational need for tritium. The watch has proven to be very durable and I am very fond of the clean dial. It has proven water resistant and accurate (ca. +/- 30 sec per day . I have the Maratac Pilot original (with the triangle at the 12 o'clock position). Usual disclaimer, not affiliated etc. Just sharing my experience.

Somewhere in this thread are comments regarding the CountyComm MARATAC™ PILOT AUTOMATIC WATCH. I had been looking for another automatic watch and based on those comments I ordered one. I'm wearing it now and so far it's keeping time. Very clean, plain, almost Spartan dial; I like it. I set the time and will give it a few days to see how well it does re fast/slow. Time will tell ... lol

Timex expedition, a nice inexpensive analog face quartz movement.
The only extra features are the indiglo lighting and the date window.

It is easy to read, keeps good time, it is easy to reset, and it is reasonably durable.

I just bought a Timex Expedition a couple weeks ago, too. It's a nice field-type watch that is inexpensive enought that I won't mind beating it up. A bit heavier than I expected but I like the feel of the extra heft. No complaints. Haven't tried submerging it yet.

Oh, and having that Indiglo feature on an analog watch is really handy! Sometime you feel a little helpless having an expensive analog watch and you can't tell the time because it's too dark.

It's the "when properly cared for" that undermines it for me. They have moving parts, which need oil, which can turn to gloop. Many experts recommend getting automatics serviced every 5 years, or less. Servicing can cost hundreds of dollars. Solar powered watches do use batteries that will fail eventually, but in practice they will last a lot longer than 5 years.
