I like the pocket watch. 50mm would actually be a good size.

I can't/won't comment until I read size specs. I find that Android does an interesting job with cases, colors, and Miyota movements, but those freaking 50mm/19mm things negate any interest I'd have.

I've owned a couple of Androids over the years, and I've never been able to bond with them. While I admire some of Wing's designs (apart from his recent Invicta-sizing of most of his watches) the one's I've had seemed cheap--the machining and finishing of the steel seemed iffy, the bracelets didn't seem well fitting, things like that. They seemed much more like inexpensive fashion watches than something I'd wear for a long time.

I did get one of his tungsten ladies watches for Mrs. C, and that one had pretty impressive fit and finish.

Well put. I like some of what Android does, but their leather straps are, in my experience, either flimsy or unbearably stiff, while their bracelets are a complete travesty, cheap and clunky. Just my two cents.

I don't mind Android, just wish they would separate themselves from Shop some. The brand could stand on it's own. When they get away from the Shop/Invicta tendencies, they aren't too bad. Agree with AJC, the Antigravity would be one of choice if price was right.
