Re: AVO SOTC - August 2020

Great post Steve, love your collection and enjoyed the read. Do you see a consolidation (ruthless as you noted) within the vintage side of your watches?

Re: Why no 3 hander sports watches

Re trident vintage. I may be wrong, but I don't think you would want a screw down crown with a manual wind watch. I know I wouldn't. It's the same as screw down chrono pushers. Immensely irritating for me. My Panerai (PAM 512) has screw down crown with a handwind movement. Its rarely near water but...

Re: Trident Elite 1000 LE - running slowly - advice please

Hi There, I was lucky enough to get my hands on an Elite 1000 ('#288). However, when I received it, it was running some 11/12s slow per day. I advised CW right away, and I waited a few weeks before returning the watch to see if it might settle down. It didn't, so I sent it in to be regulated. I go ...

Re: Watch Timing Accuracy - Detailed Explanation

The 8900 movement is METAS certified, not COSC. My PO 8900 sometimes looses and gains but in the end evens out over time. And it is very accurate when wearing during the day and rest at night. Posted about it on the Omega forum here: METAS results versus real world performance https://omegaforums.n...

Re: Look at that, another Speedmaster...

I'm often put off a watch that has a polished stainless bezel and this would have been the case here too. That black moonwatch bezel totally transforms the watch in such a good way. I can't wait to see it with the new handset. It's a cracker Gary. scooter Hi Gary echo scooter's thoughts verbatim! A...
