Re: What’s the best thing about the watch you’re wearing right now?

It’s one of only three that we know of. A C65 Dartmouth in black with no lume on the bezel apart from on the 1200 triangle.

Re: Not a Fan of DHL

I ordered some things for Christmas/Birthday's later this year 9-days ago. All arrived from India today by DHL. Superb service, tracked all the way no problem, unlike a well known US company - brown vans - who some how have managed to send a parcel to more or less 45-states before sending it to Germ...

The new no-date Sub, on the other hand, would be perfect if not for the shiny shiny bezel!

Re: C60 Lympstone

As an ex Bootie, I wouldn't buy the "Dartmouth" as much as I like it, and would like one, because of the Navy fouled anchor on the case back. I would if they would put the G and L on the back of it for a one off for me, but the "lympstone" has a different sized case so may not fit. As a "Perc" as "...

Re: C60 Lympstone

Having the Commando dagger on the rear case would have also opened it up to "Pongo" and "Matelow " commandos, may have also left space for a unit number like "40" "42" or "45" as us modern guys had only those 3 units straight out of basic training.

Re: C60 Lympstone

Hmmmm a C60 with no date - it’s what I’ve been looking for since I joined this forum. However I feel that I couldn’t wear it as I’m not a Bootneck.
