The Soprod A10 is based on a Seiko design used under license. Looks like they have been making it since 2004. From what I can find the TRI-04 u...

Re: CWL of the day

I bought a bunch of these textured NATOs from Cheapest NATO Straps. I really like them. The texture adds a nice dimension. 20211116_183305613_iOS (3).jpg This looks good but I've had NATOs from CheapStrapNATOs before and they came up short on my expectation / need. What's the length, excluding the ...

Nice! That bracelet reminds of the studded ones from the 80s that you saw everywhere!

Re: The Ombre dial eventually had to be copied

Ombré in French translates to shadow. The CW manual says it means faded. Looks a little like my C60. I like it.
