Those two Zodiacs are wonderful summery tool watches. Y'can feel the breeze.

I have a friend that owns one of these, and to say his is totally enamored by it would be a huge understatement--------

Yup, that's me. Literally, the only thing interesting about this wartche is the somewhat-but-not-really interesting Soprod movement. Horrifically overpriced for what you actually get. Christ, I got 25% off from an AD and it was still horrifically overpriced. The case has Invicta-esque finishing, the bracelet blows, the movement is inaccurate, the bezel feels cheap, it wears on the wrist like shit. Let's put it this way--my relatively new Seiko Sports 5 GMT wears and looks a lot better, and cost around nine bills less.

I've worn it a few dozen times, and each time I put it on, about five minutes later I find myself wondering, why am I wearing this piece of shit?

Yup. Other than that, it's fine. When I wear it, sometimes I feel fresh and flirty. Sometimes, when I wear it, I have to lock myself in a public restroom to rub one out.
