Great cause, very worthy.

I hope so. The return of the once great Motor Sport pillar would be welcome IMV.

Not now it ain’t.

Photo orientation. Read all about it!
Thanks AVO, link duly read.

Watching 14 Peaks now, and it has been worth the wait. A truly inspiring feat by a team of legends, and a treat for fans of the sponsoring brand.

Re: Burgundy, crimson, scarlet: where are the red bezels?

Due to production challenges, they are being (already have been) phased out…

See this post

Thanks to @AVO for the tips on how to make links less ugly.

Re: Tribus 303 Squadron Review

Every review is subjective, that’s the point. What does the reviewer think of the watch in question? There may be positive or negative bias behind it, which is fine if it’s based on experience only. If the reviewer receives compensation for the review then it should be disclosed. Thankfully in the w...

Re: CWL of the day

Got this back from CW Towers a week ago, after going in for regulation while running at -20spd. Immediately on return it clocked -1.7 spd and now, 6 days later, showing +3 seconds on the week.

Re: Curved Spring Bars

Place a piece of string or wire against the old spring bar, then lay it flat & measure.

Re: Happy Birthday Bahnstormer_vRS

Many happy returns Guy! 👏🎂🍾

If I recall correctly, this is a significant birthday, and I’m sure you’ve told this me already, but what watch was it that you’d lined up for the occasion? Was it the 1969, the S2000 or something else?

Re: Lug-Stitching on Leather Straps - Yay or Nay?

I always associate the side stitch with vintage straps, and I like the added detail. Otherwise it’s just a strap.

That’s exactly what went through my mind…..

Re: Tribus Orders

^^^^ I think the cases are sized at 41mm. The bracelets are very good aren't they, albeit no QR clasp. Just push pins, but I prefer them to pin and collar. I thought your watch was gunmetal at first, but on reflection, I think it's SS isn't it? I went for the TRI-03, but that does look good. @JAFO ...

Re: Tribus Orders

My TRI-02 arrived today. I’m one of the many who felt the original pricing was ambitious, and I was very put off my the marketing. The only model I liked enough to be tempted to buy was the TRI-02. The GMT complication is useful to me, the bumblebee colourway attractive and not common in my collecti...

Re: Tribus Orders

My order should arrive today, having made it to my local DO this morning.

When challenged by her indoors I shall simply say it was “70% off” & “I can return it if I don’t like it”.

Re: Proliferation of watch brands, Zero West Watches

I haven’t seen an email, and I am on their mailing list, and I’m in regular contact with Andrew. 😢

Anyway, Google reveals this:

Re: Tribus Orders

I agree communication has been poor. I suspect they were overwhelmed by the sale volume (Chris fir one could have expected that), and given the speculation about their viability, they should have sent emails informing customers of the delay. I suspect cancellations were more to do with buyers fearin...
