Re: I'm thinking about "modding" a #Tide strap

I've done this on a woven nylon strap for my son as he has very small wrists (as do many 10yo 🙂). It was very difficult to get a smooth line freehand (even following a drawn line). I tried using an appropriate sized coin clamped as a guide to cut around... worked but wrong shape. I then cut the orig...

Re: From posting to lurking…

Reckon I'm pretty much the most infrequent of posters at the moment so fully understand. Online social like the forum means different things and serves a different need at different times for anyone.. social interaction, amusement, diversion, comfort, interest, education and dare I say friendship.

Ooh, I know I haven't been around enough when I see an IWC on missF NWOTD. Very swish indeed 🙂👍

Re: Harry Metcalfe's watch: can you identify it?

Could it be a Zenith Port Royal...? Im looking on my phone screen and it's not that distinct.

Re: Straum x Fratello

Struggling to commit based on the 39mm vs preferred 41mm, also maybe a little with handing over a fairly big chunk of change on a long pre-order without ability to view/try before.
I may get over the reservations though based on that dial/design/integrated bracelet 🙂

Re: Mesh straps

@Bahnstormer_vRS and fabulous it looks too! 👍
I think there's a great range of knits, polishes and gauges to suit most watches.... if you like the look that is (and I do 😉).

Re: Mesh straps

I think a nice Milanese particularly can look really good on a dressier watch. Matching the mesh gauge and level of polish/brush to the watch case is probably key but there's a good variety to select from.

Is the inner bezel burgundy, or is what I see a reflected color?
Yes, the inner bezel is a polished deep red. It was one of the features that stood out when I found the watch some years ago 🙂👍

Re: A time to try and a time to buy - Grand Seiko and Zenith Content

Great write up Neil, what an enjoyable way to spend an hour or so. Thanks for the reviews and pics. The shape of the Zenith did it for me but definitely advocate trying on anything in the 'painful' bracket. It is a slightly odd complication. With GS I can appreciate the individual elements but the '...
