Re: My First Steinhart Has Arrived....

In the context of a homage, it is a very good looking watch and Steinhart do seem to produce a high quality and value product. As you say, you have saved yourself £6k (had Rolex conferred you as worthy of them relieving you of your money, an honour bestowed on only a few!).

Re: Free Money?

I’ll believe it when I see it if we get £500 “free” from the government. Considering the amount of tax I have paid in my life however, I won’t feel guilty (in the highly unlikely event it happens) about spending it on whatever I want.

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

My C60 Trident Vintage is just the watch I’m wearing now. It’s pretty much the only watch I wear. The best thing about it, and the reason it’s the only watch I wear, is that it was a wedding gift from my wife. I love everything about it, but it’s sentimental value tops the list. Quite right, nice t...

Re: New arrival today (white SMP)

I've just measured mine and yes 20mm lug width. The point Mark makes about the strap though, the Omega rubber strap is excellent and whilst the Barton Elites are nice (I've had a few) not in the same league as the Omega. It's a lot of money yes but when you have spent several thousand on the watch y...

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

2012 FLE Trident. Best thing perhaps it is one of only 50 made, so quite unique. It's also a lovely shade of blue, my favourite colour.

Re: F1 2020 | 2021 Motorsport Thread

Very interesting race, if they are all like this I won’t be complaining.

I think LH was slightly unlucky with that last penalty. I’ve seen them declared racing incidents in the past.

C65 Dartmouth MK1 for a lovely drive to Windy West Cork in the new MINI today :) I even colour coordinated the strap with the lush seats ! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200704/af1947fe8ad1558617d3d5c819e97366.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200704/9e7b33f11e99af89118f3dc0dfd50195.jpg Lo...

Re: New arrival today (white SMP)

Looking good.

Just checked the timekeeping on mine over the past two days and it is still spot on with 0 seconds gained nor lost, so happy with that.

Re: C65 Dartmouth QC Question

^^^ Agreed Guy. As far as I can see the only point not in doubt is that the error on mine is far more obvious than on the OPs! :lol: Kind of wished I hadn’t clicked on the thread. :) Where small tolerances are involved it is the person with the watch in their hand who is the best judge.

Re: C65 Dartmouth QC Question

I personally would never have noticed it, and even if I did, I don't think it would bother me.

However it is your watch and if CW are offering to take a look at it then it seems like you should take them up on that.

Re: Watch box / watch pouch

Neil, in fairness I maybe described the wrong model, to be precise it was one of these I think he was referring to (Omega Speedmaster Apollo XI 50th Anniversary Moonshine)
