That Barracuda was shadowing us for a while before it came up behind us and I snapped that pic and it shot off. Barracudas are creepy bastards.

Kind of reminds me of Archie Luxury.

I am beyond in awe of not only your photographic skills and your knowledge, but also your use of actual dive watches in actual dives. Cooler than cool; one of the best things here in ages. My hats off like crazy to ya.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

Shucks TB. Thats kind of you to say :oops:

I think the longer a person dives the more they want redundancy and back-ups in their equipment. Lots of occasional divers snicker at the use of dive watches but I like to have backups for my bottom time and my air. At some of the more serious sites people won't even take you out unless you carry 2 computers. Given my love of dive watches using one as a back-up for my bottom time is a no-brainer. And truth be told I refer to my watch to track time more often underwater because its way easier to read. Just the same as on land. For instant readability a well designed 3 hander absolutely shits all over the digital displays available on most computers.
