That was the worn and wound collaboration, right? It wasn't my speed either personally.
That's correct...
I actually liked the gray Sandstorm.

Re: New LE Sector Dial 38mm - Pre-order live!

When I saw Sector in the title, I first thought of Nodus, a micro from the west coast of the US.

I like the Sport and Field model dials, but I'm not a fan of the Seiko lower end movements.

Re: New LE Sector Dial 38mm - Pre-order live!

I like the different textures on the dial and I think the blue really pops. I'd be more interested if the lume and markers were all white. I find the two colors to be stretching for differentiation without contributing to a cohesive design. Otherwise, I find the Sector to be a compelling offer. Best...

Re: Alpine silicone straps

I have waterproof leather strap from Alpine and I've had no complaints. If I was in the market for a thick silicone strap, I wouldn't hesitate to get the Alpine version.

It’s a nod to Apollo 11.

Re: Just delivered by DHL from the International Space Statio

@Leon O Interesting piece; as others have said, perhaps an acquired taste for the more conventional among us. I’m quite surprised to see Roman numerals on a watch like this, and I wondered about the significance of the coloured one at 11/XI? Great eyes. Although the orange IX was mentioned in rhe d...

Re: Just delivered by DHL from the International Space Station

I put on an Italian leather strap that wasn't in use. I think it may look even better with the original notched strap20240427_180737.jpg 20240427_180750.jpg Sorry to be critical, but that looks terrible. The watch sticks out like a sore thumb. The wider, notched OE strap is so much better. Stick wi...

^^^^It was either the Eagle or the Stellar for me. I have a lot of black dial watches so I went withe the blue Stellar for variety.

Re: The Twelve X (Ti) - Released

I appreciate the engineering and manufacture, but it's not my cup of coffee. I also don't care for open heart dials or most display backs. They seem like a novelty to me. For fun, I'd rather wear a StudioUnderd0g or a colorful Farer.

Re: Just delivered by DHL from the International Space Station

Another Marloe fan here. The Astro isn't "me", but they are great watches. Very good to deal with too. When the Astro first came out a couple years ago, I thought it was interesting, but not for me. Fast forward...when I saw the Astro on sale for such a great price I started thinking abou...

Re: Just delivered by DHL from the International Space Station

Brilliant! I was looking at these just the other day. Any chance of some (many) wrist shots please? :thumbup: I will update with wrist shots in a few days. Before I bend the leather I'm letting it run a few days to make sure the movement ru s within specs. Like most of the reviews say it does look ...
