Re: Comparing Two Nezumis

Yeah, the El Primero is a good looking watch for sure. Interesting how some of us are drawn to the 6, 9, 12 layout, and some (myself included) are more drawn to the 3, 6, 9 layout. I actually like them both -- and also am good with the bicompax, especially with a date at 6 -- but do prefer the balan...

Re: Comparing Two Nezumis

NOTE: The manual wind 10th anniversary model is a limited edition, with 100 pieces in each of three different colorways. I'm not sure how many are left at this point. Just FYI.

Comparing Two Nezumis

Not sure if anyone else will find this interesting, but I'm posting a couple of images of two variations on Nezumi's "Voiture" chronographs. The one on the right with the leather strap is the original mecha-quartz, and the one on the left with the bracelet is their 10 year anniversary vers...

Re: Wimbledon 2022 Thread

Henley-on-Thames is not far from CW in Maidenhead and The Regatta starts on 27 June and finishes on 2 July (Wimbledon starts 3 July). The Regatta is a great way to see Brits at their extremes of poshness and lunacy plus the racing is excellent.Tickets go on sale in April I think. I'll try to find s...

Re: Wimbledon 2022 Thread

Oxford is well worth a day (or two). A lot of the colleges are open in the afternoon; some (usually the richer ones - go figure) charge silly money, but some of the smaller medieval colleges are very pretty and still free to visit. You can visit the Sheldonian Theatre (a Christopher Wren masterpiec...

Re: Wimbledon 2022 Thread

Wimbledon: I am pretty sure you would need to apply for seats well in advance. There is a ballot for seats. You can join queues to get daily ground entry, but I believe they are long. If money isn't too much of an issue, you can queue jump with hospitality packages, or buy from ticket agencies. Wim...

Re: Wimbledon 2022 Thread

Not sure if I should respond to this thread, or start a new one titled "Wimbledon 2023" -- admins, please feel free to adjust as necessary. Anyway, there's a chance my wife and I will be heading across the pond during Wimbledon this coming summer -- Wimbledon won't be the only reason, but ...

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

And, in addition to the Fears Brunswick (see earlier post), I'm also loving the Vertex M-100A. Similar story behind the brand to Fears, too -- both companies rekindled by descendants of the original founders. Love the fact that Vertex was also the only British-made watch out of the original Dirty Do...

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

The thread about the Fears/CW collaboration has put that brand on my radar. Now the Brunswick is stuck in my head as a potential retirement watch! I like everything about it and the heritage associated with the company. 7B715615-550C-4571-97A5-EA4E090E8222.jpeg Totally agree, although I'd choose th...

Re: Sealander Hunter Green Ombre Strap Options

The green canvas strap from CW is literally made for this watch, and it's hard to beat! pic1.jpegpic 2.jpeg 7560022D-4ACD-445D-880B-454A8BFCE3F2.jpeg Yeah, I have the green canvas as well, and for some reason, it's never felt right to me. It's not subtle or sophisticated enough for the dial to my e...

Sealander Hunter Green Ombre Strap Options

I thought I saw a post recently asking for strap options for the Sealander Hunter Green Ombre dial, but now I can't seem to find that thread. Anyway, here are two straps that I think work well. One is a dark brown Horween leather, the other is a hybrid sailcloth and rubber green strap from The Strap...
