Re: Oops the Concepts going back for a repair!

All the shiny new features on that watch and it's let let down by a spot of glue? Glad to see the crown pulled out, hopefully you noticed before it did any damage.

Re: Bronze and Green?

Wait until the bronze goes all manky then you can have green and green. And green wrists as a bonus! You could become the Green Man. Is it known if the skin chemistry that patinas bronze quickly is the same as that which makes some people go black if they wear silver jewellery or is bronze patina m...

Re: January 2022 Sale

why would anyone buy and return a Titanium bracelet? . . .because when they got it, they realised it would ONLY fit a C63 Sealander Elite; that they didn't own. As someone who put the wrong size C9 bracelet in my cart two sales in a row years back I should have thought of this option. Never actuall...

Re: NATO Strap Store - Closing down

Was this a "DFS sale"? The site's still there and lets me put straps in my cart.

Re: January 2022 Sale

^^^ The Deep Blue one that was added at the same time didn't last long either, maybe a couple of hours.

Random thought - why would anyone buy and return a Titanium bracelet? Can't think of any other reason it went to the bottom of the page and it's bothering me :lol:

Re: Bronze and Green?

Sounds gorgeous! Sadly between the bronze and COSC I don't think it'll be in my budget anytime soon though.

Re: Fantasy Football 2021/22

Unlucky, I dodged that one and have his partner who at least managed the full match as captain but not a great start to a double. Got an unlikely 9 point 'keeper sat on my bench too!

Re: Bronze Sealander.....

So from the product code in the now completely dead link it's a standard (non GMT) COSC 39mm with a black dial? Sounds good.

Re: Shinola Monster - Forged carbon

I like that but the "matching" strap distracts from the subtle orange (there's two words rarely seen next to each other :lol:) in the case so mine would have to live on the rubber. As to pricing carbon is naturally black so colour is going to cost more, though I have no idea if it's justif...

Re: CWL of the day

Old watch on a new strap (Hirsch Pure) - much more comfortable than the original on my small wrist but I'm not sure the black and yellow works as a dress-diver :lol:

Re: Spinning Rotor Syndrome

I guess you mean when the rotor spins when you hand wind an automatic? When it happens you'll know - it gets stiffer and you can hear it. Happened to my C65 Classic last night so seems I have to pay for my first ever watch service :(

Re: C63 Second Hand Lume?

Maybe there will be a "unique" prototype in a future sale with no lume which was sent out to reviewers?
