Thanks @Giles @Appfaff I had to buy them again after my watch restart 2 years ago. I´ve spent 12 months only with Apple watch but last year just bought Tudor Pelagos Blue and these PADIes again. Blue is just my watch colour:-D

It’s a very smart look! A Tudor Bay Back is my dream watch - and I too love Pepsi style bezels

@Manticore Very nice!  Is that a separate bracelet surrounding the watch?

A long, long time ago, there were lots of barely known watch brands that didn't survive the Quartz Apocalypse. One such manufacturer was Evans, which as far as I can tell, made a range of affordable, but generally unremarkable, watches.  As some of you know, that happens to be my last name (no relation). For that reason, I keep a lookout for them and have purchased a couple over the years.  This is my newest, and nothing like any other Evans I've seen previously.

It will need a complete overhaul, but I really like it.

Love that.....Well done....

For some reason, it reminds of this:

"UniversalGeneveTri-CompaxRef.22502Men_sVintageWatch15_720x.jpg"

A few years ago, a fishing mate of mine (who is a serious pikey and hangs around dumps and buys bits and pieces that have been salvaged from the skips/dumpsters by the "Recycling Operatives") got hold of one (not the one in the pic, I grabbed that from the web). 

I think he probably paid no more than a fiver for it.  He had it fully refurbed and then offered it to me for £1000.  I just did not have £1000 lying around at the time.  I often think about how much I really wanted it....

That's would've been a fun one to own, even if just for the story.

Hey @goosehd! It is a zirconium bracelet by Pat Pruitt.
