Re: The "I've never seen a stranger wearing a CW" thread

I did see a stranger wearing what looked to be a C-8 of some sort at Oshkosh, last July, but I had speech with him and got his autograph in my freshly acquired book "Spitfire-The plane that saved the world," so I suppose that disqualifies me, oh damn.

Re: What's been your most worn watch of 2018?

Casio G-Shock GW-M6510, solar charging, radio synced. Practically indestructible, worn at work.
The rest of the time, with the occasional exception, was the Omega Speedmaster. Wearing it now, in fact.
Happy New Year, everyone. 'Specially you, Lindsey.

Re: Lest We Forget

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Your Dad, and men like him, saved our world, Scooter.
God Bless.

Re: Apple Upgrade

Upgrading to an SSD shouldn't be too hard, iFixit has a number of tutorials on various Apple devices. I'm using a 2012 Mac Mini, and will probably upgrade to the combination SSD/harddrive in the near future.

Re: Default or Goto Watch?

Speedmaster for me, without doubt. I've worn it nearly every day since purchase, even to the point of switching out my Casio G-Shock after work. I've even been known to do a "village" and wear two, the Speedmaster and one other. I call this doing "timing tests" on the other watch. Yeah, right. Timin...

Re: How often do you see strangers wearing a CW?

Finally saw one here in the US, at the EAA Airventure in Oshkosh. One of the men involved in the production of the Spitfire documentary was wearing what looked to be a C8. I asked if he had gotten it from Chris himself, and he was surprised to find another person who knew about CW.

Re: Cw travel pouch

I have one of the double travel cases, but as stated earlier, they weren't too popular, so discontinued.

Re: Which Omega Moonwatch would you choose .

I like the look of the Speedmaster Moonwatch, its easy to read dial, and of course, the chronograph. It is manual wind because a rotor driven one would not be functional in weightless environments, and hesalite because it doesn't fracture when subjected to sudden pressure and temperature changes.
