Re: How long to respond?

Hi Tony. I'm afraid that if it's not on the website then it's not a current model- and it's anyone's guess as to whether there might be one in the future. There was a white-faced option with the C60 300 up until a year ago or so (I had one) so it's entirely possible that you might find one either on...

Re: Which Thread Lock for bracelet screws?

For the sake of security I do use a tiny amount of 222 on the screw threads. I have seen threads come undone and for the effort of using the Loctite takes the worry away. The trick is to use only a tiny amount applied from a pin and for removing them, firstly don't bodge it by using poorly fitting t...

Re: Breaking News from WatchPro July 31

Sounds like the beginning of an exit by CW and others to me. What makes you say that Jon? Growth has delivered a healthy return on investment. Successful entrepreneurs are always looking for the next opportunity. CW is an established brand now, with some efficient vertigal integration, but the high...

Re: Strapcode - MiLTAT Bracelets; would you recommend?

Just to add a balance I've had a coouple of Strapcode bracelets- the latest was about 12 months ago for a new-model Seiko turtle and before that for a Seiko solar SNE435 diver. While the fit to the watch was good (and better than the OEM), I did find the finishing of the bracelet a little lacking- i...

Re: Dreyfuss & Co Watches

Looks great Nigel- a brand I've never really looked at before this afternoon! Interested to see there is also a very similar model (DGS00153-52) coming in at 42mm. The movement is an Sw200-1 to fit the smaller case but as a result it's an auto. _3D._23_60S-S-_3F_2C3_60R_2CSDR_2CC_2CU_2C34W_3CW_2CY_3...

Congrats- that looks absolutely stunning. I love the way the hands are dark against the light face making it really legible. Let's admire that caseback when you get chance :)

Re: Ball Roadmaster icebreaker

But isn't paying in full up front, and then waiting 3, 6, 9 months for your watch, the norm for Kickstarter projects? Guy Sent from my Xperia XZ Premium using Tapatalk You're right guy, but Ball are a large business who I should have thought have the investment in tooling and design to not be depen...

Re: Ball Roadmaster icebreaker

Is anyone going to go for it? It feels a bit harsh for them to ask for all funds up front with no option to just place a deposit, but delivery of the watch isn't forecast to be until Jan or Feb 2020.
