A day at the farm

 By: batholith : August 1st, 2020-05:14
An entertaining day at the farm today. Got to school a baby Agamid lizard in what makes a No Rads Fifty Fathoms a decent watch and former scorpion student came around to show his appreciation later.

I think the FF Scorpion Picture is a world first! [nt]

These big ones

 By: batholith : August 1st, 2020-06:47
aren't so bad, their sting doesn't hurt that much. The small ones, though!

I donโ€™t want to find out!!! [nt]

I never understood that cloth strap

 By: ripper444 : August 1st, 2020-07:34
It has leather on the underside. Doesnโ€™t water ruin it? One reason I sold my fifty fathoms was because of the hex screws and no strap optjons from blancpain with insane prices.... now I see you swimming and am wondering if the strap
is really water proof?!??

Is there a version with leather?

 By: dte2 : August 1st, 2020-07:58
I have the standard sailcloth strap and it has no leather, just rubberized backing.

You are correct

 By: ripper444 : August 1st, 2020-08:01
Mine had the same soft rubber backing and I just thought that was for comfort but could not be submerged due to the cloth. I always thought that once it gets wet it would be drenched and hard to dry but I never actually gave it a try

I wash the strap occasionally

 By: dte2 : August 1st, 2020-09:07
It dries overnight with no problem for sure. It's not the most hardwearing strap though; would not call it a tool watch strap.

I see. It must be my OCD that prevented me from trying

 By: ripper444 : August 1st, 2020-11:06
next time!

I am swimming and diving since 12 years three FFโ€™s on the original canvas strap and I never had to change one yet...

 By: agyzace : August 1st, 2020-12:32
The underside is rubberized and both sides are practically indestructible.
My assumption has always been that to destroy the underside one would have to keep using it in salty water and never cleanse it afterwards.
The best dive strap I have ever encountered.
All the best,

thatโ€™s impressive [nt]

Both of mine have been extensively and roughly used in all sorts of water, tropical weather, workouts, with no problems whatsoever.

As Dte said, rubber.

 By: batholith : August 1st, 2020-10:43
No problem getting it wet and has held up well over the years. This particular version does come with an extra rubber strap as well.

That No Radiation is much more than a "decent" watch! [nt]

Yes, no doubt it is a nice watch

 By: batholith : August 1st, 2020-10:44
and have yet to see anyone else wearing one in real life. I do enjoy it, very characterful.

Just WOW ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ [nt]
