Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Phoibus Submariner

It's Friyay! More specifically, Phoibus Friyay! I'm always hyped to get this Blue-dialed, Blue-bezeled beauty back on my wrist. For me, the Phoibus represents the perfect size for a submariner homage, at 43mm; not too oversized, and doesn't feel dainty on the wrist at the same time.


Sometimes, Blue on Blue can be a bit much, but the Silvertone index markers on the dial and bezel, along with the brushed stainless steel case, allow the Blue to stand-out, instead of drowning-out the overall look of the timepiece. Phoibus went all-in with the sub look, choosing to include the magnifier at the 3 o'clock position. Some people despise the cyclops, but I don't mind it, and feel that it actually lends to a more authentic Submariner look.


The bracelet on the Phoibus sub is rock solid, sporting one of the highest quality Oyster-style bracelets of any brand I've seen at this price point. No squeaks or rattles, looks and feels like quality.


Pairing the Phoibus today, and making it a true Blue Friday, with the addition of a custom-crafted bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo. This pairing has my Wrist-Game feeling Blue, which in this case, isn't a bad thing.
