Oh wow. I don't remember that, but then I wasn't on the forum much then. I thought the color combo was interesting and different! Blue's fine too!

Re: Return of Brown Super Compressor?

I very much doubt if it will reappear. My recollection is that it went to clearance rather early in its lifecycle, having been vastly outsold by the other two dial colour options. Neil That's annoying but certainly not surprising. Blue does rank far higher than brown on the overall color popularity...

Return of Brown Super Compressor?

So, I am very close to pulling the trigger on a Super Compressor. I've been eyeing one for a while, and I admit that it's the new logo-only dial that has me ready to actually do it. But then, I find myself pausing again because I remembered that I preferred the brown dial over either of the blues. A...

Re: How thick is too thick?

I'm not sure that I have a hard upper limit on thickness. I've owned watches that have approached 15mm, and I have a pretty small wrist. I actually like it when my watches have a little bit of a "potbellied" profile, and most days, I don't have to worry about my watches fitting under a tig...

Re: Turning green - A long time coming

Incredible addition to the collection, Bjorn. Special in every way. Enjoy it in good health!

That green color really is lovely. The way you describe the shifting in the light sounds a lot like my Grand Seiko hi beat GMT.

Re: Show your pet!

He is a sweet kitty, and he purrs often and loudly. But he occasionally confuses the bathtub for a...

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

My watch dreaming and buying habits are sure to change now that I'm sharing my bank accounts with another person. Time will tell how that will all evolve. You mean..... you didn’t have the.... ‘how many watches am I allowed?’ conversation.... BEFORE you got married????? :shock: :lol: Oh my goodness...

In a world where not everyone is still going a bit nuts for integrated steel sports watches… :D FTFY :lol: Definitely noted. Lots of people sure are nuts for them though! They're generally not my cuppa, but I'll reserve judgement until I try them on. The ALS Odysseus wowed me a lot more than I expe...

Re: Describe your watch collection with a film title

Or would LOTR mean that I get to have 20 watches since there were 9 given to men, 7 given to dwarves, 3 given to elves, and then 1 to rule them all? That I could work with!
