Hello again! I haven't been ignoring your comments on tonight's first unveiling, I have been slaving away at this double unveiling! :-( It's hard work!! :)

<br>

So the next watches were purchased from Creation Watches, which sometimes has very good prices, and three day FedEx shipping is included! And in my two experiences their service has been immediate! Oh, I also like that I can use my VIsa card directly through their World Pay service, no PayPal bullshirting! :)

One of these watches I have always wanted, and they had it for a great price, and I was starting to worry how much longer it would be available, so buying it was 'a natural'! :) The other watch? Uh, I can't really understand why I bought it! ;-) I wasn't drinking, I just decided it was 'cool'. :)

Here is the FedEx bag, got here in four days, including the Easter Holiday!! Woohoo!

<br>


<br>

<br>

And sure enough, it has two boxes in it! Good sign!! :) Now one watch is really big, and the other is much smaller. Something tells me the big watch is in the small box!?!? :) Isn't that what *you* would expect out of life? :)

Let's try for the big watch first, shall we?

<br>


<br>

<br>

Hey look, I found a Citizen watch manual with the smaller white box, I think we are on the right track! But the box is _really_ small! :-(

<br>


<br>

<br>

Okay, okay, we know it's a Citizen already! :) I am starting to worry about how small the box is though. Maybe they sent me the ladies model!! :-(

<br>


<br>

<br>

Nope! :) Whew! There is the big blue monstrosity, the Citizen blue 'Orca' on the titanium bracelet. Officially known as the BN0016-55L. I love the blue dial, and the very distinctive hands! And since the case and bracelet are titanium, it won't weigh too much, despite it's size!

Heck, I bet if I can wear the massive Seiko "Spork", I can... What? Bet a Toaster??? Why would I bet a toaster? I was just saying...

Oh, you want me to get closer! :) Sure, why not! :)

<br>


<br>

<br>

Is this better? ;-) Nice dial isn't it? And aren’t those hands distinctive? No trouble telling which is which on this watch! And it has a very domed crystal, which really looks good on this unique design! It's wild!

<br>


<br>

<br>

Okay, it's after midnight here in Ohio, I better move along to the second box!

<b>What's this? A Casio??</b> Wow, how often do I get a Casio! :) Well, don't forget my collection of Casio "TwinGraph" watches, and my enormous PathFinder!

Okay, let's get to the inner box!

<br>


<br>

<br>

Yikes! It's deja vu all over again! :) Second box, much like the first!

Well, let's get it open!

<br>


<br>

<br>

Awww, rats! It's stuck! I hate that! ;-) And I think I'm too tired to force it by myself, can you help? I'll take this side, and you get that side over there...

<br>


<br>

<br>

Yeaaa! We did it! :) So what do you think? It is a bright orange Casio Gulfman. All kinds of cool features; world time, low temperature rated, moon phase, tides, 5 alarms, auto-illumination (although that feature truns off every three hours??), stop watch, chronograph...

What? What did you say? A redder hue?? I don't know if they make a red one...

What?!? Look I'm trying to finish... Oh, you want a better view!!!

Why didn't you just <b>say</b> so!?!

<br>


<br>

<br>

There, are you happy now?? :) This model has a titanium back cover too!

But what am I going to do with a bright orange plastic watch!?! :) What was I thinking! As long as I am kicking myself, the back light has a big orange fire-ax right over the time, which makes it hard to read! Who's bright idea was THAT? :)

<br>


<br>

<br>

Well, anyhow here are my three latest purchases, soaking up the light for the lume showdown! They sure are three very different watches!! I guess nobody could say I always buy the same kind of watches all the time! :)

Okay, maybe 90% of the time, but not *all* the time! :)

Hey, ready for the lume showdown! I am, it's late!!

<br>


<br>

<br>

Gosh! Huh! Maybe I need to charge the Citizen Orca a bit more, I thought it was going to 'walk away' with this competition, but you know, I think I have to give the award to the 20 year old Alpinist!?! Don't you agree?

Oh and if you look closely , you can see the orange fire-ax covering the time on the Casio! :) Silly!

<br>


<br>

<br>

Hey, that's all I can do tonight! :)

I just realized I was starting to hope that no watches show up tomorrow! I must be tired! ;-) There are three more inbound, two from Reto and one from Mr. Kelly M. Rayburn himself!

I don't get to keep all three, but I will fondle the one that is going to be a gift, and I'll take some pictures for you! See you soon!

<br>

Re: A double watch unveiling, and I bet one of them is quite a surprise! ^L^ >>>

wow, busy little camper with all these nice surprises. Gotta love incoming and unboxings.
Congrats on all three. Must say, some interesting addictions to your collection.
Nice discovery for me was how much I like that alpinist. ;)
Like the orange of the g-shock, but sad to see that fire axe too.
Always love the Orca, and it still is on my want list.

Thanks for sharing, enjoy all three. ;)
Dave.

Pretty cool! 8) 8)
I also entertained the idea of getting an Orca and the Gulfman, but I think I would go with the EcoZilla and Riseman instead - still on the fence, though.

"It's deja vu all over again!" LOL!

Hey at least with that bright orange watch they'll find you easier under the bar table!

I think the orange line is called MIRO or Men In Rescue Orange...hence the little fireman's axe.
