Re: Why no 3 hander sports watches

This was ever so close. In 40mm I would still own it.

Re: Chrome book recommendations

I've been a Chromebook user for about 7 years now and love it. The great thing is you don't need a powerful processor or much RAM to get decent performance, although as always more is definitely better. I've had an Acer Spin 11 for some time and it's size is perfect for ultimate mobility. It's a tab...

Re: Selita vs seiko winding difference

Yes, they have a lot more resistance. OTOH, the Sellita SW-330 (ETA 2893 equivalent) in my CW Trident GMT mk2 is buttery smooth. Strange.

Re: July Sale

The drip-feed approach is the best I think. Just add individual watches here and there. No big ta-da and the loyalists will be sure to find them.

Trident Chronograph Pro question- unscrewed pusher moisture resistance

How moisture resistant is the Trident Pro Chrono when the pushers are unscrewed? I'm not talking about taking the watch underwater, but rather leaving them unscrewed when there is high humidity (hello Florida!). My concern is that moisture gets through to the inside of the case if I'm operating the ...

Re: C8 Power Reserve in Steel

I had one briefly and loved everything about it other than the long lug to lug length. The watch felt uncomfortable with a sizeable overhang on my 7"+ wrist so I returned it, with much regret. It's a gorgeous watch - if your wrist can handle it and/or you don't mind a bit of overhang.

Quartz has its place, but that place is utility. Art and therefore emotive, it is not.
I beg to differ.

Re: C60 Sapphire - New Release

Differing from you is getting 'my knickers in a twist'? That's a strange self-centered approach you've got going there.

Re: C60 Sapphire - New Release

I don't get the 'story' of this watch. A see-through dial (yawn, Swatch has been doing that for years) looking into a basic movement. The story would have been much more interesting and coherent if the movement was an SH21 - there'd be somewhat of a point to the whole see-through thing. And the scr...

Oh. My. God.

That may play better to a UK audience but... if they were going for cheesy, they did it well.

Some nice updates there - particularly the slightly narrower bezel.

Here's my choice:

Re: CheapestNATOstraps.com

There has been quite a bit of chatter about this on various Facebook groups. My order was despatched over 3 weeks ago. Apparently, they use the cheapest shipping method possible unless the customer pays extra. Also, they use DHL - which I have never had a good experience with when the package is com...

Wearing this watch a lot more since I took it off the bracelet and put it on a soft touch strap.
