unlike myself who has too many choices.

I put the Allwyn on first thing



but then because I was wearing brown I switched to the Q&Q



only that was too modern so I switched to the Wannianqing

I love the x-33, you now have a duty to uphold here. Represent. hehe
I never tire of looking at it. Seeing yours is the closest thing to having one until that day comes. haha.
As much as I love my Tsunami, I like to live vicariously thru you. haha.
You can wear both, one on each wrist.

in wrist feeling and practical time telling! Yes, it is true! and in fact the Landtrek's lumed hands and numbers are better than the X-33 for viewing under all conditions!!!! The Landtrek's wider hands are easier to read. Both lume watches perform the same in the nite and last about the same time.

The Landtrek's slightly more toolish bezel makes it look just a tad more macho, whilst the X-33 is slightly more civilized haha! The X-33's digital portion shown on the dial is good and does not distract from time telling, visually like a regular ana-digital watch with digital window.

So, appreciate the Landtrek! and don't flip it! haha!

I've gone thru my collection over and over. When ever I come to the landtrek for flip consideration, can't do it. Even though it beat up. haha. I like the no cyclops on mine.
I've seen at least 4 Landtreks with the most recent, a green one. Tempted, but trying to stay on track for the scale down and bigger picture.
So, I could've and maybe should've picked one up to have a better one, I'm happy with my trustee well wabi Landtrek. I'm just dreading the day to change the battery. Don't want to bugger up the perpetual calender. Would seem a pain to set up.
I had figured they'd weigh and feel very similar both being Titanium.
The x-33 has got to weigh nothing with the green strap.
My Tsunami w/mesh is great, but I do feel the weight considerably compared to Landtrek.
I've got my line up for the big flip. Just not the best time to do so.
X-33, must stay on duty.

are fine...all the rest is in the mind! If you had to wear the wabi Landtrek as your only watch, would you be content...is a question to ask....if yes, then the Landtrek is a keeper!

I know right now, you are into pristine conditioned watches...we all were...but over years wabi is just cosmetics...like pre-stressed new jeans with rips in it hahahahaha!

have you polished your Landtrek lately??? I do it now for all my 6 rotation watches and it does make a difference to see the metal back to a nice new sheen!

Yes, the weight of the Tsunami is noticeable against the ti models...but for me , I just notch the leather strap one hole tighter haha...cheers!

Although my OCD with pristine watches have been overcome. hehe.
I like wabi. Hence my love for many vintage pieces. Almost impossible to find a NOS or mint vintage that I can afford. So, I've embraced wabi, and even beaters. My CO23 is beat to crap, but I still dig it and wear it.
I prefer if the wabi came from me, so its more personal, historical notches. But no matter, I've accepted wabi, adds character. Just the right aging on lume and dial just makes a piece much more nicer IMO.
Haven't polished the Landtrek, probably could use it.
Whats your workflow for polishing? I never done that. Only a scratch brush for scratches on brushed clasps and bracelets.
Thanks. Dave
