Hi Randall. Understand you want to sell the HF 150. I see it has the lighted dial. I also have the same model and was wondering where can you get the light installed?
Regards, Jerry

Speaking of the bracelet sizing blues, my new Invicta Venom with a stainless band has done a number on my hand too. First, it was too large, banging down on my hand as you describe. I went to my girl at the mall and she talked me into taking two links out (complicated links----two pins per link, long and short, pieced together like a puzzle). Anyway, when she was done, it felt good at the mall---but later, was digging into a bone on my wrist. I think it might be a weight thing I just have to get used to---this thing is like a heavy lead weight. She was convincing that adding another link would make it too large again and it would still slip----I think even if she adjusted the clasp in (it's at it's furthest setting out). I will wear it again tomorrow and decide whether I want to try another adjustment. I hate having them mess with it though.

The Endmill has a bit of a bubbly look, doesn't it? Anyhow, as I said, you seem to have the same issue with the OSD as I have with the Sumo - don't like the stock bracelet and can't find a good replacement.

Have you considered wearing it on rubber?

While I considered rubber, I'm now thinking the conventional Rolex cues might be better served with a bracelet affording the OSD striking contrast: a shark mesh bracelet. So that's next. Just a little watch drama to keep me occupied.

Buying new bracelets (and learning how to change them yourself, ahem) is a helluva lot cheaper than buying a new watch every two or three weeks.

Original oyster bracelet is nice but lacks some heft IMO and is tapering. I think this watch would look great on SE type I better then type II or even hexad; endmill doesnt attracks me here
To bad I cant find any phot with OSD and SE type I
