Yep, it’s quite possible that I’d sell my green one in order to buy one like that. :)

Re: CWL of the day

This was on a bracelet, but I decided that it was time to make use of the dark green CW strap that’s been sitting around for too long... It may have been intended for the PVD C65, but I think it looks equally good on the stainless version. http://i.imgur.com/wx0mfrx.jpg http://i.imgur.com/q5hONMG.jpg

Re: Oris Divers 65 Bronze Bezel 40mm Joins the Herd...

Interesting write up, thanks for taking the time to do it. I own two Oris sixty-fives; the original re-release in 40mm size and a green dial version in 42mm. Both with very different dials and obviously, with a couple mm size difference. However, if I were to do it all over again and buy them today,...

Re: Non CW of the Day

...Winders don't work and the Seiko chargers are nearly impossible to find while being expensive. I bought mine many years ago Nik, when they were still fairly readily available and also very inexpensive.... unlike the current situation - on both counts. Nice to have two such contrasting colours an...

I found that if I added *anything* else (like a £10 watch pod) it suddenly worked...

Re: Anal retentives unite!

While I prefer a full, boxed set, I have been known to take an “educated” punt on some of the out of focus, cruddy looking watches. Sometimes they come up trumps; I’ve even had a couple with the box and papers unexpectedly included (but not mentioned or photographed). At other times it’s a bit of a ...
