    Not got time today to work my way through the collection seeing which ones need attention due to clocks going back but this wee new acquisition sorted itself out. Can't find an exact match in the watchshock archive so all I can say is that it is a DW-9500 something with a 2163 module. A pleasant military green with a simple aftermarket strap.

    How big is that? I ask because there was a Mudman GX56-1A that went a touch too expensive on eBay last Saturday. I went into the nearest town and saw it in a jeweller's window - looked gigantic! I am almost getting to like some of the "square" watches ...

    It wears smaller than a GX-56. It isn't as tall or high as 'the king' or 'oversized' GX-56. Quite a chunky watch in a good retro way though, it's quite wide but because this is along your arm it doesn't look or feel too bulky. Good luck finding one, a lot out there with cracked and damaged bezels, was quite keen on this model (have a similar in gold) and bought a few before I found a good 'un!

    Nice strap, similar to the one on my GW-7900 but makes it difficult to see the model and module numbers

    It's an AW-591MS-1A with the 4778 module - not bad for a pony!

    Good work, like the fabric strap. One of the ProTrek's has similar to good effect.

    Gone with the DW-5025 today

    Nice. I am s-l-o-w-l-y coming round to squares! Maybe it's because I grew up with analogue watches where the hands sweep in a circle that I cling to the idea that a watch should be round. Or maybe because there seemed to have been a flood of square cheap and nasty (even though expensive) digital watches during my formative years. Anyone remember the Sinclair Black Watch that changed time if you flexed your wrist?

    As an aside there is a great bit in one of the Futurama cartoons where Fry falls from a ledge high up on a skyscraper and saves himself by grabbing onto the hands of a clock in a sequence which is obviously a homage to such silent fim actors as Harold Lloyd. Of course, being the year 3000 the clock is digital. He clings to the top bar of the 2, then the 3 and falls before clutching the crossbar as 4 appears. A brief respite clinging to the crossbar on 5 then 6. Next numeral is seven ...
