Re: The search for a strap for my C60 bronze.

The leather finish on the yellowdog is spot on. However...having got back to using a Bader, I'm not going back to a buckle now.

Before I took to wearing just the one watch, most of my watches were changed over to Bader deployants - I luv 'em!

Re: The search for a strap for my C60 bronze.

Mansarea vintage leather - I'm off to look!

Having been back using the Bader deployant for a couple of days - I really do prefer it to a buckle, but that doesn't look too thick.

Re: The search for a strap for my C60 bronze.

Love the look of that burgundy soft leather. Not a fan of the bund thing, and you have to get a couple of bronze rivets!

The search for a strap for my C60 bronze.

I have been a "1 watch guy" for sometime now, wearing my Trident bronze every day for a couple of years or so. BUT I have been constantly on the look out for the 'perfect' strap. It's bronze - so a bracelet is out. Even if they did do a bronze bracelet it would be too heavy and make my wrist green! ...

Re: 20mm Hybrid Rubber Strap for C60 Sapphire

....so I want to replace it with a deployment buckle but whilst the lug end is 20mm I can't find the width of the buckle end, so I can order the right clasp. If anyone has this strap I'd be really grateful if you could let me know the width Hi Richard, Like you, I really prefer a deployant to a buc...

Re: Where are the hobbyist photographers?!

I am a 'all the gear, and no idea" type of photographer. Years ago I bought a Canon AE1 plus a buch of lenses. Then I got given a Shureshot (Still in film days) So I sold the AE1 and lenses as thay just didn't get taken out. When digital arrived - I was an early adopter and bought one of the first O...

Re: Suede strap - patina!

Hi Paul, it’s a strap that only comes in 18,19,20mm widths, which i don’t think will work for your bronze C60 :thumbdown: It came from UKwatchstrap.co.uk and I guess it would be worth checking the site for other similar straps. For ref, this one is : RIOS Tompson Brown (AU9 COGNAC) Hope you find on...

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

This is a ride I quite often do, but today I took a little camera with me. 1/4 Mile east from home is the local recycling centre, based in a small layby formed when the old road was straightened out. Turning my back on the recycling bins; I have this view. The towers in the distance are RAF Barford ...

Re: Franken (personalised) C60 300

If I was asked if I thought white face/orange bezel was a good idea, I'd say a resounding: "No".

However, having seen it, I really like it! That's a good one-off. Well done.

Re: Looking for gin recommendations

Foxdenton 48

A proper London dry gin, where the botanicals are added prior to distillation. The 48 is the strength.

Re: Sapphire...what's next?

As the blue is obtained by affixing a coloured backing to the transparent face; it gives rise to a lot of cost effective customisation by printing different backings. So it would be relatively easy to produce, club or company specials in quite small runs. The technique could be applied to almost any...
