Why am I lusting after this one so much lately??! Theres just so much about it that makes me want it. 21mm lugs are a bit of a pain but I think I could get past that

Re: CWL of the day

Such a great watch. NO unnecessary verbage, great lume, keeps near perfect time, and I can read it from across the room.

Re: Ball Watch Company - Under Rated Brand?

Let me share one of their newest editions from my personal "to be seriously considered" file. The tritium vials are beneath a translucent layer in a sandwich style dial, allowing the luminous tritium to shine through, without the block type numerals that some find distasteful. The same treatment has...

Re: Protecting Stainless Bracelets

Great post! I have seen similar pre cut products for sale on Ebay, but at ridiculous prices. As much as I love my Datejust, I have pretty much quit wearing it to work because of the scratches accumulating on the clasp. I have had success polishing them out with a Dremmel and .25 micron diamond paste...

Re: Ball Watch Company - Under Rated Brand?

A good friend of mine has, forgive me for the temptation to say "pair of Balls," :lol: but rather two Ball watches. Seem to be extremely well made with extra attention given to extreme shock resistance. One, and forgive me for not knowing the exact reference, he is able to, by turning the back of th...

Re: New arrival today (white SMP)

Top notch alright. The contrasting black with the brilliant snow white dial. Possibly, my favorite combination. :thumbup: :thumbup:

I know where one of them went it's in my watch box. The T3 limited addition model. Just can't help thinking, why the hell did they put a deployment clasp on a diver?

Re: Non CW of the Day

Wanted this for over two years. Paid for it in May and collected it this afternoon. My last ever watch maybe. https://i.imgur.com/gsuDnI7.jpg I had one of these on at an AD half a state away a couple months ago. Because I was just "browsing" that day it went back in the case. I awoke the next morni...

Re: Non CW of the Day

A real rarity for today. An Orion Calamity Drab. Not a perfect watch but an unusual design that has good WR and a thin case. I've not seen this before, and I like it a lot. Clean, uncluttered, great lume, and nice deep crown guards. Nice knurling on the crown. Wow! A screw down crown as well I expe...

Yes they do, but you need a certain number of posts before it is available. Mods can help with the particulars.

That’s splendid in scale, but it looks like they’ve forgotten to add the name plaque! :lol:
And here I thought this one would be a keeper. I feel so slighted. :explode: :grumble: :lol:
