Re: The things they write on watch dials

I suppose if you don't know if a watch is auto or hand wound it's useful information. In that case why not put "Hand Wound" on the dial as well, if that's what it is? What interests me more is why and when "Quartz" disappeared from dials. Good point, is hand wound never written? I can't think of on...

Re: The things they write on watch dials

I suppose if you don't know if a watch is auto or hand wound it's useful information. Maybe it's an inherited watch with no paperwork. My Dad put a vintage auto (with automatic written on the dial) for service a few years ago and it came back a few weeks later with a hand wound movement in it. I thi...

Re: New pics of C65 SH21 LE Diver

^^^ check out the 6th photo down on the first page with the reserve on full power!

I like the way it drops when I leave it for a day and then recharges over the course of a day's wear.

Re: New pics of C65 SH21 LE Diver

^^^ A fantastic shot too! And another benefit of a quick release strap!

When did this watch come out? I can't believe I missed it at the time!

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

Hack Green - went there a few years ago to EMLRA event (Ex Military Land Rover). It's rather odd seeing signs to the "Secret Bunker" isn't it? Quite chilling in a way, but well worth a visit. Yep, it's a bit ironic... :) http://www.beautifulbritain.co.uk/images/OutAndAbout/sign_language/secret_bunk...

Re: New pics of C65 SH21 LE Diver

I own #002/150 and I'm really happy with mine. I'm surprised it hasn't sold out yet. Your photos look much better than the stock shots and the website, so that may stimulate some interest. Thanks - I don't really know what I'm doing when I take photos, I just play around with various settings until...

^^^ Yes! I wasn't expecting that and very pleased about it! It is a very easy to read date window too.

I had to do the pics yesterday to get that date in!

New pics of C65 SH21 LE Diver

I'm really pleased with this watch 3 weeks in. It's very comfortable and looks great. The C65 vintage divers I waited so long to buy is not getting much wrist time since this arrived. With the help of the most recent Loupe, some new pics below... https://i.imgur.com/awMRs6n.jpg https://i.imgur.com/t...

Re: Confusion about SH21 COSC certification

I think this should reassure the OP not to worry too much about COSC specifications!
