Re: Your 2893-2 / SW330 experiences

I recently acquired my first GMT, a C65 Pepsi, and the GMT hand is spot on too.

One additional (minor) benefit of the GMT movement is knowing, when the watch has stopped, whether to advance the hands past 12 or not to set the time correctly with respect to the date.

Wife just opined that this combination doesn’t work. :oops: She’s wrong, obviously.

I may be alone here, but I actively seek out a watch tan line!

Re: CWL of the day

Taken the massively obnoxious step of matching my attire with my watch bezel. And then gone out for my government mandated exercise.

Re: Non CW of the Day

Marloe Lomond all weekend.

I’ve spent a lot of time looking at the C65 Anthropocene recently, completely forgetting that I owned this. It even looks good on orange!

Re: New CW

The first question for me would be: "Do you need/will you use a GMT?" If yes, answer obvious. If no, think again. Complications are nice, but for me there's little point in having them unless you intend to use them. Respectfully disagree there, I think the GMT hand brings a nice splash of colour, c...

Re: New CW

Speaking personally, if I'm purchasing a new watch, I'm looking at what sort of hole it fills in the collection and whether it offers something dif...

Has the above ever been discounted? ie 30% off or more? I have the C60 Pro Auto Chrono (The Beast!!) and thinking of offering it up for a trade but unsure what either are worth
I believe it has come up in the Nearly New section of the website more than once, but never hanging around long.

Interesting that these are both released in 40mm.

With the C60 Sapphire having been released recently in 40mm as well; is 40mm the new 42mm? :-k

I wondered if it was to make up for there not being a red bezel available in 40mm.

Just preparing to take some beef short ribs out
Nice! (The watch is merely ok!)

Early start for the beef ribs?
