Re: Is the logo changing soon?

I notice the Super Compressor has just been re-released with the new flag only logo. Must mean that's what they're settling on? I'm not sure it works on that particular dial as it's already busy enough! I don’t mind it on the SC. I also don’t mind the text based. If either come up in the next sale ...

Re: King Seiko anyone?

This is a bit of cringe branding to me. Seiko has its place, Grand Seiko has its place. King Seiko? Sounds like a super hero villain!

Re: Buying used

At the prices you're quoting there, new would definitely make the most sense. Unless you're a circular economy kind of person and would prefer not to add the planet's creation of stuff!

Re: Is it possible my brand new Abyss SH21 needs repair?

I'd like to know how you get on with this! I know many watches do need to settle down. Do keep this thread informed!

Re: My 10yo C8 has stopped working.

If it's a watch you love and it's worth the cost to you getting it fixed, I hope you do so!

Re: My 10yo C8 has stopped working.

Just stopped? Just like that!? Oh no! I've got several aging auto watches that are still going strong without a service. I didn't realise they just stopped. I assumed you'd get some warning with other issues.

This watch is a beauty by the way! Not one I've seen before.

Re: AR Coating

It seems a bit unnecessary to add a coating to the exterior of the crystal if it risks coming off? Surely the difference in reflectiveness isn't that big a deal?

Re: Darn darn darn..... my new C60 MK2 Yellow LE has a movement issue

One of my older CW watches does this. If I wear it more, it stops. I think it's just a use thing, it'll free itself up.

Re: We've been expecting you Mr B...

You didn't go for the bracelet? I had heard that there were some issues with the original bracelets which had put me off a bit but the main reason was that I couldn't justify the additional cost for the bracelet version. Also, this is a Military style watch which, imo, is best suited to a NATO. The...

AR Coating

I've come across a few threads about watches with AR coating issues. Personally, I've never had this issue with any of my watches, but hear higher end brands like Omega and IWC can have an issue where the exterior AR coating scratches/peels off (that's right, a completely scratch proof sapphire crys...
