Re: What your watch brand says about you!

"You scoff at the JLC 751A as a rushed copy."
Not a copy, the 751 has a verticle clutch, the El Primero's is horizontal. Rushed? The 751 wasn't released until 2004. Maybe just being faceious.
Still, a hilarious read. :thumbup: Thanks for sharing

Doing it with a date window anywhere else on the dial apart from where it is, might be a help in making it more attractive.
AGREE! Worst date window ever.

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

A lot more scenic than my morning ride on the Turbo Trainer! We had folks to lunch, so I hopped on for an hour whilst the smoked gammon was cooking. Hot and sweaty in the garage.

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 Bezel Rocking movement?

No play up and down, or lateral in my ACAN at all. It can be turned with thumb and little finger. Seems perfectly fine.

Re: Speedy indeed! Demag solutions?

2 months or so ago, an Oris, that I have had for some time, and then my C8PR started running fast. Both within a week of each other. No changes to my daily routine that I could think of. So I purchased a de-mag unit, found on ebay, and it seemed to work perfectly. I then rearranged the position of a...
