Well spotted. To be fair, though they do call it a field watch. I just find the colours dull. I’d like to see it with a royal blue dial, white lume plots and an orange chapter ring and GMT hand.

Re: New release Dune GMT

This could be a nice watch with a decent colour palette. Maybe they will add to it.

As it stands…drab!

Re: What watches look good on mesh?

I tried one once, sent to me by a kind forum member.

I wore it on a couple of watches, concluded that I didn’t like it on any of them, and passed it on to someone else. Just my opinion, obviously, but I really don’t like them.

Have you addressed Customer Services on the matter? That would seem to be the next logical step.

That, or buy a Tissot.

Re: Incoming

So…a game of “20 Questions”

We can deduce from the fact that it’s in Other Brands that it SHOULD be a watch, but it’s not a CW.

Q. 1: Does it have a rotating bezel?

Re: C65 Aquitaine - Graphite (concept)

^^^ @petardimov A good point well made. If you’re going to have two watches of similar sizes with the same function, then you probably want them to look as different as possible.

True, but I stop it at the top of the minute so that I can line the minute hand up with the correct mark. I’d imagine that is what most of us do.

Re: so this has been bugging me so i'll just ask...

My lazy brain needs indices. I also prefer to have a seconds hand, either centre sweep or sub dial. I only have one watch without a seconds hand, and to be fair it’s a MeisterSinger so it doesn’t have a minute hand either. What it does have is excellent indices, so I can invariably tell the time to ...
