Re: Vintage watch of the day (30 years+)

My seventies Renis. The 34-35mm case always seemed too small until I put it on a Steveo bund. Problem fixed (in my mind at any rate).

Re: Non CW of the Day

1970-something Renis today on a Steveo bund... which to my mind makes the 35m case look a much more reasonable size.

Re: Non CW of the Day

This watch is giving me a slight dilemma as I bought 2 standard Kontikis last month and trying decide whether I will wear them or if I should return. Was deliberating last night hence why they are both in sync. https://i.ibb.co/fHXd2Yh/IMG-20190914-105812.jpg Of the two on that photo, the plastic w...

Ooh I like that one Chris. It’s a little bit KonTiki meets Hamilton Pan-Europ chronograph, but all the better for the pairing. :thumbup:

Re: Oris Sixty-five Diver LE Honey X Revolution

Good to see you back Gary, doing what you do best - posting pictures from the beach. Oris is one of my favourite brands, and the 65 has become their signature in my opinion. The bronze-edged bezel has been a simple change but one that’s transformed the character of the watch from a tool watch almos...

Re: Oris Sixty-five Diver LE Honey X Revolution

Reckon it will look pretty damn gorgeous on the bracelet. Interesting selection of straps. Not sold on the beige suede NATO though. Not that familiar with Oris, like the look of the watch but not so keen on the pale brown strap. The darker one looks much better, I wouldn't put it on a bracelet pers...

Oris Sixty-five Diver LE Honey X Revolution

Nice shots and write up, as ever. I've misted up the shop window staring at this one a few times (or whatever the online equivalent is - probably doesn't bear thinking about). I think the fifth photo does a good job of showing that it's not a purely orange dial, in contrast to the official marketin...

Re: Oris Sixty-five Diver LE Honey X Revolution

Nice one Gary (as the Aussies would shout to Nathan Lyon!) Lovely dial colour, though I still prefer the 65 model with the retro numbers at 3/6/9/12. Beach is looking rather tempting, hope you're enjoying the Ashes as much as me! Hopefully see you when I'm across in '21 for the next Ashes tour. Gar...
