Hawaiian Lifeguard Association Watch Collection

My understanding is that some percentage of the sale is given to the life guard association but the original webpage is a 404 error so I have to wonder if the whole thing is not a scam to sell items to make a profit under the guise of the 501c charity.

The webpage as it appeared in 2012

And as it appeared before going all 404 on us. A page full of links taking you to spam.

The company selling the watches, Saltzman's, used to be THE Glycine distributor in the US. I had several conversations years ago with Saltzman when I first started to be interested in Glycine Combat subs. The price 5 or 6 years ago was about double what it is now where you can pick on up for under $400.

Show me any watch that is worth the sum of it’s parts. Just saying.

Good point, but you can say this practically about any hobby.


True story. It comes down to is it worth it to you as the buyer.

You aren’t going to find many watches with that budget. I can see you rocking a neon swatch watch though and your matching neon polo shirt with the collar popped. Hip pouch/fanny pack?

Well?


The moon landing is fake. Fake moon landing = alleged moon watch.

Also, Rolex is just a marketing department. A bezel must be fully indexed to be worth a damn. Bronze isn't durable. PADI rules.

Fog, whatever you do, check out the recorded works of Walter Brennan - disturbing, strange, comical, dramatic, just out there. Don't say I didn't warn you. There's one song, "Suppertime" (he narrates, he doesn't sing), that's so fucking weird at the end that I never wanna even hear the name "The Real McCoys" ever again.
