7/34 : Citizen AT8185-71E Hakuto-R Limited Edition With a few days delay today the Hakuto-R limited to 1600 worldwide. Unfortunately, the images are not of the usual quality because the light environment was not ideal. It will now take some time before the next watch can show you, and that depends ...

Re: Postale watch straps

That's a great match up for your Bloxworth, Des. I think a similar strap would go well on my RNLI Canford, which I routinely wear on one of EB's orange rubber straps.

Re: New pinion

That dial looks amazing, Pinion produce some interesting stuff. 38mm is just too small for me and I'm almost relieved as recent acquisitions have drained the watch fund somewhat 🙂

I wasnt really very academic for the sake of academia, needing ro relate to the subject or have an end goal and I too would have welcomed a teacher like y...

Re: Have a laugh with me, not at me...

Thanks for the post, I suspect there are many that live with mental illness for a time in or throughout their lives. Some in ignorance of its existence, some in denial and some aware. Your openness and the humour which you apply to the situation(s) is both refreshing and entertaining in a 'laugh wit...

Re: Non CW of the Day

I haven’t considered one of those. I think the 19mm lugs might look a bit narrow. Note how the beads of rice bracelet widens to 20mm just after the lugs. 19mm all round might look a bit weak for shark mesh. Have to admit i hadn't considered the width or really noticed the BoR widens so much after t...

Whilst you may have decided modding isn't for you, great job on this watch. You should be proud of the end result. 👍

Re: Purposeful regression

I was feeling similar about cars and the amount of computerised intervention/control a while ago and went for a 1960s car as my funaround. The reality wasn't quite as appealing and whilst driving it was a visceral experience, maintenance and safety were somewhat challenging. There's a happy in betw...
