Re: What’s the best thing about the watch you’re wearing right now?

The best thing about this watch... It has been a constant with me for about 30 years. :thumbup:

Re: C65 Trident GMT

The C65 Trident GMT is one of my favorites. I have the all steel black version which is great on any strap or bracelet. 20200619_195433201_iOS (2).jpg 20200612_134837955_iOS (2).jpg As a general rule I try to get most watches on the bracelet because the bracelets are generally a lot more after the f...

Re: My First Steinhart Has Arrived....

I've had several Steinharts in my basket over the last month or so. I am on the hunt for a good everyday diver I can semi beat on and wouldn't feel too awful if I lost it during heavy activity and, for me, the Steinharts fit. I've had my eye on this one: SteinhartOcean1PremiumBlueCer4_babf5a4a-3216-...

Re: A bit of blue

Of the options listed, I would recommend "your friend" goes for the Dartmouth. It wears smaller than its dimensions (which are actually 42mm for bezel as it has a slightly wider bezel than the regular C65s) so that shouldn't be a problem. Whisper this quietly, but I find the regular C60 Mk3s a litt...

Re: Vintage watch of the day (30 years+)

Been playing around with aftermarket bezels. I had a black one on and it looks really good. Makes the face stand out more to me. Somehow, though, I always go back to the original. :D

Strap Management

Okay, deep breath, the first step is to admit you have a problem. I like straps. I like buying straps and wearing different straps. It started pretty much after I got the C65 GMT which will take any strap in stride. :shock: :D :D So now I have a ton of straps! Glad that is off my chest! :D Now, I ne...

Re: C60 Sapphire

Here is the video in question: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_K_k7lDnECA What he is complaining about, really, is the raised crystal above the bezel. Many watches do this. It is an ascetic choice. My GMT Master from 1977 has the same design. The acrylic crystal edge feels rough to the touch (I jus...

Re: CWL of the day

Reached for the Dartmouth today. I thought that the ADPT NATO in coyote tan played with the vintage colored lume in a cool way.

Re: CWL of the day

C65 Trident Vintage on an ADPT Nato (Mai Tai color). Picked up a couple of these NATOs this week. Really like them but they are a little short. I can just barely tuck the end (7 1/2 in wrist). That aside, build quality and materials are excellent. I think the Mai Tai plays off of the orange GMT hand...

Re: Non CW of the Day

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50016303666_03720109ee_c.jpg Is that one from HKED? I wanted a Sea-Gull but wanted something a little different and a little more retro looking and picked up that exact watch. Bought mine with the red chrono seconds hand. Liked the way it stood out from the dial ...

Re: CWL of the day

Dartmouth on the NATO is getting a lot of wrist time lately.
