My new beater My new beater

I’ve been looking for a beater watch for awhile for camping and outside work as well as field visits for work. Did not really want a G Shock as I think they’re just too big now, picked up this Seiko SKX007 diver from A***zon for $200 and am wondering why I didn’t get one sooner.

Third time going to Grandsport Speedway in Hitchcock, Texas, this time with the Lone Star Region PCA. It was a fun fast layout and my best was 52.7 sec, results haven’t been updated so don’t know what FTD was, I ran in an Audi only group and was second to a V10 R8 but I had a blast.
