20 - Dec - At last the all German made 1000 meter diver with 5 mm sapphire crystal has landed and is for sale this is a watch for every man who wants the MOST rugged watch at a price that is impossible to beat. It is my way of thanking my customers both past and present for their friendship and business.

13 Dec - not too late for the holidays the new watch has arrived from Germany - it is an incredible watch and in many ways a watch for everyman - hope to post it with photos this week thanks for your patience

2 Nov - Only 1 black and one white dial mueller style left if you want one for the holidays now is the time to buy there will be no more. Progress on new watch is good sample due any day will report more when available

1 Oct - sorry for lack of news but much time is spent preparing a new watch to debut in Nov or Dec that will knock your socks off - details to follow with photos when ready. The mueller style is seeling quickly and there will be no more

7 Aug - In speaking with O &W a very popular watch has been found in the vault - 6 pieces of the 620 Muller style exploding numbers the price is a giveaway and the quality superb it is shown on page 2 and there are 3 black dial and 3 white dial.

15 July - sadly the ETA 2801 m0ovement is in short supply so we have sold out of the coin edge 120 watch - sweet watch at a sweet price - hope to have them again?

7 June - As you know the Maratac nato G10 has been selling at a low price since its inception but recently the price of fuel, transport and the shellacing the dollar has taken made the supplier increase the price more than we would have liked - perhaps what it is worth so now it will sell against the fakes and poor quality wannabes for a fair market price sorry we could not keep this going forever

12 May - As some of you have noticed inventory has dropped I am happy to tell you that more M-4 and also explorer style will be in stock by the end of the month - feel free to email with your requests thank you

23 Dec - Another holiday special is the K-2 Ranger based with 2824-2 and straightforward I am a watch dial for special price through Jan 1 these have been selling well

12 Dec - the 2801 manual A-120 was too big a hit it sold out everywhere and there are no movements left so the new watches coming from O & W are a bonus - the manual look with a 2824-2 hacking movement and a date at 3

5 Nov - we now have the new 120-2824-2 O & W in stock and it is a winner in time for the holidays as a gift for you or someone else affordable and smart looking not cheap for the price Als if you never knew where to keep your new Ipod Nano we have a place for you - on your wrist see it under the menu for Zulu bands - thanks

1 Oct- Well our friends from ESQUIRE magazine have once again chosen to use this site to show something in their fashion section in the November issue - I sent some photos but it seems they had their eyes and minds set on the Maratac bands in place of steel for those seeking an alternative it is on their page 66 of this month's issue I had wanted to demonstrate some of the Zulu® line so maybe they will next year Thanks Esquire.................................

4 Aug- The A-120 has been successfully received for its excellent fit and finish and the very fair price for a genuine Swiss ETA movement runnung inside. Now as always Mr Wajs has bumped it up a bit by offering the same watch for people who do not want manual wind but auto with a 2824-2 engine instead and also a calendar at 3:00 - have a look I think it might be the ticket for some of you

11 - Jan - Sorry we have not had a lot of news with the holidays people were not sure if they should spend or not Funny thing about watch prices is they go up but never come down - Well the latest is the new WOW watchband from Maratac.

21 - Jan - Well this is an update no one likes - like everything you buy prices are creeping up - do not be misled by other advertizers of O & W watches unless they have old stock - they do not - my O & W watches come with a 1 year warranty almost always and theirs do not - so when you take the price and add the warranty cost not to mention 3 times the shipping beware of bargains - that are NOT

28 - Dec - for those of you who want the new polished explorer like Kartargo with the MK dial buy now - the new dial is coming the old style and there will be no more of the MK - do not confuse this watch with the watch made by Bill Yao these are 2 completely different watches.

27 - Oct Stunning is the only word to desecribe the new NachtPilot or night pilot 42 mm in diam watch O & W has just come out with - sapphire of course and a unique carbon fiber dial to minimize glare! Crisp hour markings and good luminescence - this is one great watch worth every dollar.

Aug -21 The 3rd Defender of an edition of 25 is sold - given the economy I do not expect people to buy watches that fast - this will be the last edition the making of the metal bezel alone is prohibitively expensive.

Aug - 2 - Yes the Maratac Nato bands in all colors and sizes are in stock NOW do not wait as last time when there was a massive sell out something we never have seen perhaps the quality and the price of only 12.00 per strap had something to do with it?

Apr-4 Tax season will slow down our response time till the 15th be patient with us - the most popular seller has been the 3077 and the orange version is a winner. People are more than pleased with it - same continues to be true for the Mirage III Chronograph - whose price has not changed for a bit and is a great competitor with the Sinn 103 -
