Re: MKSnato sailcloth straps

...and if you just want a well made, nylon, water-resistant strap with bright contrast stitching, then these look good. I also think they would work equally well in a casual or more formal setting.

Re: MKSnato sailcloth straps

I've bought a very similar strap from iwantastrap.com. Price is virtually identical, the straps are 110 x 75 so very fractionally shorter than the mksnato ones. The quality is excellent too. https://www.iwantastrap.com/collections/all Indeed, looks like a very similar strap, even down to the contra...

They look decent enough but unfortunately they are about 15mm too short for me. :(

Wow, Guy...too small? They fit up to 8.5" wrist. No problem for me, Just a fairly standard 7" wrist here. How do you get on with EB straps, they're not the biggest?

MKSnato sailcloth straps

Have been looking at these straps over the last few days and they look ace. The quality and finish looks first class, and the colourful, contrast stitching is a lovely touch. I'm wondering if anyone on the forum has experience with these straps, I'm certainly looking to pick up a couple. Can anyone ...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 Dial

I don't have a Trident, MK3 or an older model. Do they come with an exterior AR coating? They are notoriously prone to fine scratches if they do. Still...a new watch should be blemish free. It might be an idea to get some picis up to see what others have to say.

Re: Farer watches

Is it just me or is it slightly sad that when buying a new watch one's foremost thought is its resale value.😢 A really good point. At present I own three watches, more than I've ever owned at one time. I didn't buy one based on its resale value. I would argue that when that is your foremost though ...

Re: Farer watches

Time keeping was fine. It is just that on eBay etc the resale value is much lower than you might expect. Unfortunately, resale values will always be an issue with microbrands. I don't think that's unique to Farer. It's also why I would question spending too much money on any microbrand watch. Once ...

I think it's a variant that they should carry over to the MK3's. And I know it's contentious, but the logo and placement at 12 looks SO much b...

Re: Monta Oceanking arrived today

I received my first Monta watch, the Oceanking, in the mail today and am really impressed with the quality and design. I took a chance on this watch having not seen one in the flesh, but having seen some great reviews. I am not disappointed and think I am going to really enjoy this watch. I took a ...

Re: Farer watches

I have had a couple but moved them on. I had an Endeavour and an Endurance. Of the two i preferred the Endeavour, although i don't think that the watch straps fitted that well. I would get another but would not pay full price for it. I think the quality of the cases was pretty good and better (imo)...

Re: Miyota movement accuracy query

As a footnote to this helpful discussion, I think I'm only just letting go with expectation where mechanical accuracy is concerned. In this case it's a Miyota 9130. I have always enjoyed quartz, principally because it is so accurate, but also because it is largely maintenance free (until a new batte...

Farer watches

Though a newbie to this forum, I have been looking at Farer's range of watches and am quite impressed by what I see. I know that there are members on this forum that are/or have been owners. I particularly like the Endeavour from their Aqua Compressor range; they've paid a fitting tribute to a bygon...
