    I found this review on a site I visit. Knowing several TKFers have Helson watches and thinking this was a good reivew with pictures, I thought I'd share. Overall, I like the watch but don't care for the JollyRancher emblem. I guess that kind of defeats the purpose around the name on the watch. Oh well, still a very good read me thinks....

    Arrggghhh, click here mates

    Does look cool with the lume on the dial, but would be to big for me, 42x16 mm:thinking:

    I hear ya Mario. The lume really caught my attention. In addition, the thickness of the case as well.

    I can't see myself buying one, BUT I do like the creativity put into this dial. The embossed Jolly Roger on the dial is subtle during the day and pops with the lume - pretty cool idea IMHO. :rocker:

    I think you should get one, Roger! Jolly Roger! You'd make a good pirate; I've seen you with a beard.
