Perfect material for a 70s style dial... the shirt, that is.

Re: Modifying Watches

The sweet spot between case and bezel is not something you should be able to see (on any decent quality case anyway)... it can be felt with a good case knive though, as it will slip in a tiny bit further with slight pressure as you probe around the circumference. Hard to believe that the chapter rin...

Re: Modifying Watches

So what started out as a simple bezel swap has now turned into a full case swap. Oh, sorry for that confusion....the part above did not register when reading the initial time... disregard my previous question. I was under the impression you replaced the stem tube in the original case... Apropos bez...

Re: Modifying Watches

Adventures in watch modding! πŸ˜‚
Wish I had stories like this!

Removing the stump of the broken stem tube stuck in the case and installing a new one must have been tricky... Is the stem tube a screw in or press fit?

The black definitely looks better then the blue!

Re: Is Ernest Borel A New Name?

I'm noticing that along side reissues by major brands, prequartz brands are also being revived lately. Trademarks owned by large watch group corporations are becoming tangible and substantial again as the big boys find even more muscle to flex in order not to loose customers to some very fit micro ...

Re: Is Ernest Borel A New Name?

audio.bill and JAFO I did some more research... It turns out that Ernesto Borel, like Corum , Eterna and Rotary have physical holdings (headquarters? Assembly shops? Boutiques?) in Switzerland, but are owned and traded in Hong Kong under the umbrella of CityChamp Watch and Jewelry Group Limited. I ...

Re: Modifying Watches

I wonder what watch makers did before the wide usage of rubber. Maybe they washed their hands before the final assembly... Maybe used a lifting putty to remove prints. They probably had more children 🀣.

Re: Non CW of the Day

New watch to mark the start of brighter and warmer days (supposedly. In the UK). Always fancied a nomos. I know the mix of numerals are a bit marmite. But a lovely bright colour. The dial is very detailed. And I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dial and crystal so close to one another. This is the smal...

Baltic Aquascaphe Bronze for me today. A very wearable size, and I like the dull grey hue to the patina that is coming along nicely but slowly. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20240406/058240be0a4841445b85fcad296c5747.jpg Guy Sent from my Galaxy S23 Ultra using Tapatalk Really like this one!
