Re: CWL of the day

I've tried an embarrassing amount of different straps in the short time I've had the C60. Can't resist posting another one from a few days ago: IMG_5492.jpeg I normally don’t like the primary color across the dial, bezel, and strap, but your strap has a matching level of the secondary white color c...

Re: Certina DS Action Diver (38mm)

The 80 hour power reserve is obviously good..
The 19mm lug width perhaps not so handy ..
Looks quite smart but I keep wanting the date at "6" in lieu of "3" to make the dial layout more symmetrical.

Re: That super compressor

One thing that photos don't seem to show effectively is just how much the raised indices catch the light and sparkle as the watch moves around... really stunning :thumbup: Good point! I had a go at trying to capture it - bit of a ham-fisted, lo-res attempt I'm afraid, but you get a sense of it... I...

Re: Could you?

I think if it was a challenge to say, raise money for a worthy cause, for example, it would be no trouble. :D I haven't been collecting for very long so my early, more cost-effective pieces are only a few years old - I feel like I'm still quite connected to them. .. but it took me 50 years to discov...
