Re: Zelos moonphase

It reminds me quite a bit of the Ball moonphase you used to have, and which I like so much more, missF. It always puzzled me why you got rid of it.

Re: Bracelet resizing?

Didn't this only affect the 36mm Sealanders and was quickly rectified in the introduction of Trident Pro 300 ?

Re: The Omega Constellation co axial 38mm Watch Review

I've always liked the newer Constellations and see nothing wrong with the claws. Great post, pics, and purchase. Also, good suggestion to Omega to tweak the Constellation (or maybe just one model, since I do still like the current look! ) and reposition it as their answer to the Royal Oak and other ...

Re: Martu Black Friday time

I wonder how long it takes to arrive AFTER getting the shipping emails, as I got my email around the same time as the rest of you.

The tracking page isn't very helpful, just shows the strap as still in transit. Not sure if that means it's still with the Chilean post, or it has left Chile.

Re: Non CW of the Day

Newly arrived MJW -- a delayed Christmas present from family in the UK.

Precise reading of time is really not the point. Fun? Yes ! :D

Are the hands a little to big, or is it just me? Screenshot_20230121-084744.png

Did you make the bezel yourself? If so, well done.

I do agree with missF that the hour hand is a little long.

Re: C65 Dune

I was referring to the point after they had already decided to use the twin flags logo alone on the dial. At some point thereafter, we don't know exactly when, they had thoughts of making the dial logo raised, but faced problems (per the zoom preview) with the process and only got the process nailed...

Re: C65 Dune

... fwiw, not blown away here. there are some nice features, in particular the raised twin-flags logo. which feels several years too late, i think many of us said from the moment we saw the twin flags mark that it should be the primary marker at 12, it just took years for CW to see the light. gotta...

Re: C65 Dune

I don't see why a tough watch can't look dressy in a non-tool way. Wouldn't it just make it more versatile?

Just saying..... :D

Re: C65 Dune

...... . * FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m a bit biased against the Dune. The Aquitaine fell flat with me, so any model heavily drawing on it is unavoidably going to fall flat, too. The Aquitaine was a bit meh for me as well, except for the bronze case cosc with blue dial. I especially thought the cream dial ...
