Re: Date Options

When I said I prefer a no date option, this is when there is no date wheel behind the dial.

If there is a date wheel anyway, I would go for the date option.

The recent Hamtun on Kickstarter and the new Dan Henry 1962 both offer no date options, but both have a hidden date wheel.

Re: Date Options

I think in general I agree with you. I much prefer a no date watch, liking in particular the clean lines to the dial. Out of my 14 watches, all but one has a date. And I used to wear without bothering to set it. But now it’s part of the time setting ritual when I decide which to wear. I quite enjoy ...

Re: Northwind Armstrong Black

Just had my Northwind Armstrong Black hand delivered to my door, by the owner of company no less. Now that’s customer service. I took advantage of the £50 off and for the price, it’s a cracking piece of kit. All indices line up, hefty and solid feel to the bracelet. Nice milled edge to the bezel. Di...

I can’t seem to find if the no-date option still has the date wheel behind dial.

Anybody know?

Blue one looks very good.
Just had a quick response from Dan, there is a date wheel behind dial.

Re: Newmark 71 Sports diver

Just got 2 significant updates from Newmark which certainly makes a significant difference to me personally. 1. We have introduced a non date silver dial option for all backers (this isn't a stretch goal) so it's yet another choice at survey time! 2. After much calculation and deliberation we have ...

Re: Newmark 71 Sports diver

One of the WatchChat mods runs a review site and was very complimentary about the Newmark. It was chatting with him privately that convinced me to back it. https://zaltek.co.uk/watches/newmark71.html Phil, maybe Newmark should use the pic in the article you quoted. Looks better than on the Kickstar...

No problems for me. I had a red/white GMT in my basket, then changed mind.

Seems to have moved on a bit in last 24 hours or so, could be close.

Re: Newmark 71 Sports diver

Just my opinion, but I still think that shipping from Far East for a UK company has been the undoing of this campaign.

It may well still reach the required goal, but going to be close.

Re: Formex Essence COSC Chronometer

Great stuff, so glad you’re also happy. Good pics too.

Saves me doing some when I get home tomorrow.

How’s the accuracy so far?

Re: Northwind Armstrong Black

@thebeatles - good watch for the price, Brian. Grey / green is unusual and distinctive; I like it for that. Chuncky tool watch, quite large and hefty. Beware, bezel is fixed. Black is more normal and will likely sell well, but if you can find a grey / green I'd advocate buy it, as they are not prod...
