After seeing Zephyrs new watch I decided I had to have one. I endedup with the green ocean master. I've always wanted a good watch & after a week of doing research on Phoibos watches,which get good reviews across the board,I pulled the trigger Wednesday. Paid extra for two day shipping & after some problems with the usps & their pathetic service,it arrived today. First thing I noticed was the weight. If it ever fails I'll at least have a nice looking blackjack for knocking people out. Even the guy who sized it for me mentioned the wieght. Very solid & well built. The face is interesting in that the green really pops on the website,but in person almost appears black with green highlights unless it's in bright light. The green is a very nice emerald & I like the duel black/green appearance. The lum starts out shockingly bright but fades pretty quickly then seems to retain enough to make it readable for quite some time. A good purchase imo. https://i.imgur.com/gWiAlhn.jpg

Nice, very nice. I love a watch with lots of presence and weight. But I'm not a fan of these "clocks" with a band made into them. The size needs to match the wearer in my opinion. Happy to see you are a fan of analog, I personally don't care for digital, but that's just me. That is a great looking watch, it should serve you well.

Digital has no asthetics to it. I'd never buy one. This one isn't too "clocky". Pretty much what I was looking for size wise.

I need a lot of things. The wife realized how much I spent on gun stuff this month. I'm not sure I'll get to exercise much discretion over "discretionary income" over the next few months.

Nice.  The only thing I don't like about those kind of watches is the band.  I like a leather band.

It has more black around the rim but it looks almost identical.
