Re: New arrival today (white SMP)

Thanks Gary, you have done a great job modding that mk1. Would a handset swap be possible to achieve the legibility? I had another white SMP some years ago and I changed the handset on it (as well as a black bezel) - I used the black rimmed sword hands of the great white model, but it didn’t really...

Re: Speedmaster bracelets - Uncle Seiko

Yes, very useful info, thanks! I placed an order a couple of hours ago for two styles, one will find its way onto my MkII Seamaster 300 (which definitely takes Speedy bracelets, even the solid end link style). The other may or may not find it’s way onto a Speedy...

Re: New (to me) Seamaster Professional

Congratulations on a great purchase Jon. These (and the electric blue variant) are definitely my favourite of the early SMPs (over time, I’ve owned about six or eight of them). Yours certainly looks to be a beautiful example - they are getting on a bit now and finding one in great condition like tha...

New arrival today (white SMP)

https://i.imgur.com/DYqg3HS.jpg Computer says - YES! Great choice Patrick, the latest one has what I thought was always missing in the first release - the black bezel and hands and black outlining to the hour markers. I could get around the bezel on my MkI with an easy bezel swap; age and patina ev...

Re: Doxa Sub 200

I rather like it in black, but that could be because of the strong resemblance to my Gen-II Omega Seamaster 300; the twisted lugs, the “Bakelite” style bezel including the smooth bezel base with the teeth only on the very top lip. It has a different dial and hand set which serve to make it more indi...

Visitor #4: Duneshore #2

I have a bit of a fondness for Visitor watches - I own three of them; the first was a Vale Park Officer with a pocket watch style case back; next came my favourite, a Calligraph Duneshore and the third is a Calligraph Linden. There is a distinct family resemblance between the dials of the Duneshore ...
