Re: Anybody own a Pelagos 39?

^^^It does tick lots indeed, but it's worth mentioning, it's new to me, so my enthusiasm is at its highest currently. I woke up in the night and the lume was Ok after around 3 hrs, not as good as the Pelagos FXD (That is strong) the hands were at the same level as the markers and Bezel. I've not fo...

My 3 yr old out of the blue said what do you call a witch who lives in the desert?

Re: Anybody own a Pelagos 39?

This watch could be the One ! I wore it for work today, finding the Bezel very handy to check my parking, its nice and light and its the right size to hide up my sleeve when required, to keep it from harm. I usually wear a beater, but this watch may change my thinking. I spend 5 days a week at work...

Re: Company Service Awards

My company has a point system you can accrue for awards. Something like 25k for a Seamaster 300m. I have enough to get some decent mod range autos or a Macy's GC to put towards something like. Tissot PRX auto. Need to keep stacking lol.

Re: Anybody own a Pelagos 39?

I just wish they would ditch the SW200 and upgrade the movements to something with a larger power reserve. It's a question of changing to what? CW could go to (say) La Joux-Perret G101 series and there's 68 hours. But that's more expensive, would add maybe 100 pounds to any CW watch. It's also less...

Re: Anybody own a Pelagos 39?

You have to be in the game to be....in the game :) My own experience with the (blue) BB58 was more-or-less New Year's Day and my AD was saying they hoped to get me one that year... In the end I got the call in April, so much less. [the story is a bit more convoluted as some here will remember but t...

Re: Anybody own a Pelagos 39?

I can now say "Yes" I am an owner. As its only just arrived, I can't comment on Lume, the Clasp is a great for size, though. I'll update with more thoughts, as I wear it in. Regards Steve Congrats and please do let me know. Also does the bezel look ghosted in bright lights where it looks ...

I think if I do get 1 I'd go brand new. Might take a while to convince the COO anyway as I'm not far from purchasing a Zelos Mirage 2. I like to do my research early.

Anybody own a Pelagos 39?

I'm not usually a brand chaser but for some reason this watch speaks to me. Area AD is small and who knows when they will get 1 to see. Does anybody own 1? If so, how is the lume? I read reports the hands died out well before the markers and bezel. Also, how long is the clasp compared to a 40mm Trid...

Time for CW to order the movements with longer PRs.

Re: C1 Bel Canto (Green)

Man I’d be kinda ****, the blue is nice, the green is nice too. In AUD these start at $5,000, personally I can’t fathom spending that much on something for an off the rack movement. Fair enough if it was going to be super limited but it doesn’t seem like that will be the case. You can get some amaz...

Re: Outlier brands doing good things.

some funky materials like tantalum. I love watchmakers who experiment with funky materials. And it seems it doesn’t have to be in the realms of the rich either. I’d just love a watch made of tantalum so I can tell people it’s made of tantalum 8) You have to check out the Zircti models they did. Als...
