I did really like the SBGX059 HAQ that I used to own, lovely case, beatiful dial and amazing polished angled hands. Not to mention unbelievable accuracy. The only thing...

Re: A Warning About Your Nuts!

Re: Paint has come off He valve, Elite 1000

I agree that I would not bother sending it back, either get the paint re-done as suggested or remove the remaining black paint if you prefer the all steel look......or just keep it as a unique watch with a Hydrogen valve :?

Re: Non CW of the Day

If you aren't wearing the Sub, let someone else have the pleasure of enjoying wearing it....after suitably recompensing you first of course!
