Very nice Iain. Looks great on that strap!
Thanks. That’s the standard nato the watch comes with from Bremont, if you don’t buy the white S300 on the bracelet it comes with this and a temple island rubber strap.

Re: Non CW of the Day

Wearing my bronze Zelos Mako this morning. Starting to darken quite well and I really do love the dial in this. The date could be better aligned but I’m not complaining.

Re: New Kickstarter from Yema coming

Thanks Guy. You answered my question before I could delete my question after answering it myself with a visit to Yuma’s website. Next time I’ll do my research first, ask question second! I disagree with you here. It doesn’t ever seem happen on this site thankfully, but on other forums if someone as...

Re: Non CW of the Day

I thought they were but, reading between the lines, are they not now? I remember reading some time ago that Gas Gas Bones was to close as he had grown bored of making straps. I’ve had a quick google and this is about the only link I can find, it does however prove I didn’t dream it. http://www.thed...

Re: Non CW of the Day

Well seeing as Richard and Guy started it, I may as well carry on the theme. What I find interesting to note is how our Bremont screw down crowns all align. I can’t comment on the others but can confirm my photo certainly hasn’t been staged by unscrewing the crown slightly for the photo. F70CCBC7-17...

Re: There’s a lot more to a watch than the obvious

Richard, I don’t always comment on your posts here or the more regular ones on the Facebook page. As always your stories are highly educational and fascinating to read. Over the time I’ve been reading behind the scenes I’ve come to learn a lot more about the history of the Poles during the war. Than...

Re: Non CW of the Day

My new bronze Zelos Mako. The patina is already starting to darken the case and that dial is something very different.

Re: C60 Apex : Movement problems ?

Unfortunately, I could not record Incident 2 because both of my hands were holding the watch and pushed in the crown. It happened very fast like a blink of an eye. I had to figure out how to do the three hand trick in order to send a winding clip of a pocket watch to someone recently. How I did it ...

Re: Trident 300 MK2 battery replacement

I have this type of case wrench. It comes with a case of different shaped inserts to match most case back holes. You can align the three points as well to ensure a good fit and minimal chance of slippage in the right hands. For the princely sum of £3.99 you could always buy one and gift it to your f...

Re: C60 MK3 black or white? (real photos anyone?)

Also, I've never fully understood it when people refer to not being able to tell the time with the white C60 "at a glance". It takes all of a few seconds to re-position if required to get a better view...... I sold a MK2 GMT due to the legibility of the hands. You are correct that in most light it ...

New Invicta watch

First a couple of disclaimers. I know this is in the CW section rather than other brands but it’ll become obvious why as you read on. Secondly, this has been posted on the CW Facebook page which is where I first read about it. I’m just posting here as I know some aren’t on there. Anyway here it is 9...

That's what mums do. Mine gave away a load of matchbox and dink toys, and a load of early 60s DC and marvel comics. Thanks mum.
And sadly it’s almost certain that their new owners didn’t appreciate them as much as we did.

Re: A new watch for myself!

Excellent buy, I do love a nice Bremont and have a couple myself. Their Trip Tick case design is their major positive and personally I think it’s the best case design out there. It also helps visually reduce some of the height issues others have alluded to.

Re: Wall Art for the Watch Obsessed

I had the millennium falcon and an AT-AT Walker, also most of the figurines.

They ended up stored in my cupboard when I grew out of playing with them until my mum decided I didn’t need them and gave them away!!!
