Luminosity

I received an email from CW this morning which ostensibly appeared to be run-of-the-mill marketing pushing the Trident and Moonglow models. I typically delete these but for some reason scrolled down to the bottom where I found this: FD443BC8-FC28-4254-AC5C-BBA1B1ADF74D.jpeg Rather intriguing; an upd...

Re: Oris Big Crown Pointer date or the Propilot?

I recently bought a burgundy dial pointer date: https://i.postimg.cc/L4ByZb30/B5-AB0-AA3-EE1-A-4-E5-A-BF9-C-A559-D1553-AF4.jpg I’ve wanted this since it was announced and I don’t know what took me so long. I’m not disappointed. Oris do colour and case materials very well and they’ve excelled themsel...

Re: Bezel Modifying on a CW

I’ve seen a modded Oris diver 65 where the bezel insert was replaced. The original had a bronze edged bezel with a black aluminium insert which was replaced with an OEM bronze bezel insert. It looked to be a simple task of leveraging off the bezel and then removing the old insert which was just glue...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

There's a Mk2 Trident bronze that keeps reappearing at £850... WTF is going on with this 😳 It's a prototype. One of several which used/trialled different patination techniques according to the blurb. Doesn't really give it any real uniqueness though does it. Yeah... It looks a lot like my naturally...

Re: Watch Origins - Where did you start?

Go big or go home! My first proper watch was one of these (this is borrowed photo, not mine, which was in a far shabbier state :( ). I owned it for approx. 30 years before trading it in for my Seamaster. https://i.postimg.cc/Pf8pwxfp/E1-C67-DC0-91-E9-4-AA8-8655-EBF21-E98937-F.jpg One could argue tha...

Re: Tribus Watches

Anticipation..., fanfare..., hype..., underwhelmed! Have to say they seem like an over priced fashion brand and they really should have had some real products available when they debuted. I unsubscribed from their marketing within a week and it’s only this thread that reminds me that they exist 🤷‍♂️
