Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

I like the new hands too. Having read some comments here, I was a little worried, but the video shows them nicely. This is looking good, but have to wait and see. Not long now, and anyway I will wait until things settle - and for vouchers of course!

Re: Machining a watch case

That is some hobby you've got yourself involved in there! How on earth do you find the time for it? :clap:

Re: New Nereide dive watch launched today by Meccaniche Veneziane

^^^^^ Hmm, interesting, thanks for that history. It does sound like things could have been much better handled - commercial inexperience maybe? I do agree that the watches look nice - a certain clean, detailed look. I am toying with the idea of a 4 hand GMT (I already have a push button Ulysse Nardi...

Re: Seiko scratched ceramic shroud

I had similar marks on my old SRPA83, presumably picked up from poor handling at H Samuel. The Caseback dis say ceramic, but the shroud seemed more like a hardened plastic to me. I didn't attempt to fix as the watch was cheap. If it really bugs you and a eraser doesn't work (not convinced it will i...

Re: New Nereide dive watch launched today by Meccaniche Veneziane

Not sure I trust the brand anymore. I was quite accepting of the movement change with the GMT and it didn't really bother me. What has happened since and how they handled things is a little souring. Will the brand survive, probably will people buy them, probably Are they damaged by it all, maybe Se...

Re: Seiko scratched ceramic shroud

Thanks Guy, I'll give that a try. Did anything more forceful surface in those discussions should the eraser not prove effective?

Re: Seiko scratched ceramic shroud

I may be wrong, but I thought part of the appeal of ceramic was it's scratchproof properties. If this is correct, I can't help but wonder if that is actually ceramic? I would advise against trying to remove the scratch mechanically, I think it would make it and the surrounding areas worse. If, like...

Seiko scratched ceramic shroud

I have an SRPA79 "Baby Tuna" which has a black ceramic shroud with a surface scratch, actually only visible when the light is right. I am not complaining because I picked it up as a steal, though as an OCD it's a little annoying as the watch is mint otherwise. The shroud has a powder coated look, no...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

With that case, one wonders if the MK3 will cut into the C65's current niche somewhat.

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

That's strange as I thought it looked thicker than I was expecting with the glass and bezel "sitting" quite proud off the case then the (bevelled) case side then the angled-in bottom portion of the case. Not long now though until we see proper release photos of it. If anybody actually knows yet I s...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

A further, rather arty, 'filtered' teaser photo from Mark at Average Bros https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190421/d6e62baed160634fd931d9b99ea9a4ba.jpg Guy Sent from my Xperia XZ Premium using Tapatalk Looking interesting, the case profile does look very svelte. Will there be a GMT at launch or do...

Re: This or that

Am I right in thinking prices for the alpinist are rising as they are discontinued? You may regret selling if so. I love the look of the Everest and would like to add one myself at some point, the issues with the clasp on the 36mm however put me off slightly. Perhaps waiting for the 36mm with small...

Re: This or that

I would keep the Alpinist (I don't own one but have been tempted). The compass bezel is a bit different and it has a date - for daily wear I find it useful to have at least a date window. The Alpinist is quite iconic and keeps its value well but only you can decide if you prefer and will actually we...

Re: C65 Blue Auto - Help with Straps

I have a blue CW rubber for my C60 Trident which I find myself coming back to. Chunky, comfy and I would recommend for active living. The only downside is no quick release.
