Had no idea you still followed that brand
I saw a YouTube video and prompted me to take a look. I always though Wing had design talent and from the specs on this watch at that price range I think it's a deal. 70% of his watches are borderline Invicta clown size which is a turnoff so when I saw he came out with a 42mm Diver I had to peek :mrgreen:

Saw a post on Facebook from Wing in which he was kinda pissed that Invicta "stole" his bracelet design from a few years ago. More than likely they bought it from the same source that he did

That's a rare normal size diver from him

I can't stand this guy, but that's actually not a bad looking watch priced right for what it is. Interesting that Wing-a-ling is starting to get with the current downsizing trends. I shall look forward to his first 38.

I guess Wing fixes and/or replaces watches that don't work, so props for that.

It's not bad looking. But like Curly Howard said in "If I Body Meets A Body": "I can't, I can't."

My brother gave me a big box of shit watches recently, and like three Androids are in it. Let me put it this way: Don't be fooled by the looks.

T-Man, per this comment above. First off as a disclaimer, I could give 2 shits about anyone buying one, I know I'm not.

But....

The size is what drove me to even look at this watch. The looks as I suspect is the main driver of any watch anyone has ever purchased. Sure you could buy a watch based on the movement, but if it looked like shit would you wear it?

Now then, unless Master Wing is knocking of Seiko's NH movements in a tiny Vietnamese village south of Hanoi, a NH 35 or NH36 is what it is no matter who's brand it's in.

On to the other components, Ceramic Bezel and Sapphire crystal. Sure there's different grades of each, but unless you can get a manufacturer to actually tell you what grade they are using, I'll just stick with the material name.

IMO the price is in the right range for this particular watch. I see watches all day at $300+ using the NH movements which you can buy for $40, and wonder whyyyyy?

Not one I would wear but a damned fair price for the specs and a reasonable width but still looks a bit thick.

To my tastes, all of Wing's watches look like clowns and Unicorns got drunk, fucked each other and his color schemes are the result.

Careful, careful. Liang's bracelets pull more hair than the Fabulous Moolah, or the straps feel like bowling ball sandpaper. Also, Android/Aragon is well-known (and based on the ones I just received) for wobbly hands and uneven dial work. I mean, ya get what you pay for - man does not live on movements alone.

Duly noted Sir. Not sure how we got off on this tangent with me seemingly defending Aragon.
