Re: Glycine Vintage Combat Sub has Arrived..

Can't keep up with all your new arrivals Chuck!
I like the matte blue Explorer dial, though it does resemble your Steinhart Plexi quite a bit.

Re: What will somethng special be?

My money is on a C65 chronograph. We saw glimpses in the recent Loupe, so a release has to be edging near I reckon.

What I would love though is a C65 38/39mm.
If they can produce the C60 in 3 sizes, their vintage diver surely warrants a vintage-inspired case size. Come on CW!

Re: Aquis 39.5 too small? 43.5 too big? read on ...

I was trying to go smaller this time but the 39.5 looked ridiculously small on my wrist (to my eyes anyway), I would say that 41.5 would be perfect for many who prefer a smaller case but want to retain the diver style vibe. I would say this will wear the same as the 40mm C60. There certainly wouldn...

Aquis 39.5 too small? 43.5 too big? read on ...

Good news for those who like the Oris Aquis, but can't get on with the the current 39.5 and 43.5 cases. It looks as though Oris are going to release a 41.5mm model this year, although only available initially in the blue dial shown below. Info very limited, but it's mentioned here as well as a few o...

Re: Timex M79 Automatic

^^^ that's fair enough, but the aforementioned divers are popular for good reason as I'm sure you're well aware. Also, with 50m WR and an acrylic crystal, I'm not sure I'd be inclined to describe this as a tool watch. Then again, we may have completely different ideas about what one should withstand...

Re: Timex M79 Automatic

It's different I guess, but priced at £249, I'd be inclined to go for a Seiko, Citizen or Orient diver.

Re: Did I Really Buy That?

To dress it down a little, I'd second the idea of a suede strap. Mid to dark blue and possibly padded.

Or since your keen on NATOs, how about a dark blue perlon? They can work quite well on dressy pieces imo.

Like that combo Neil. Do you not find these sit a bit high on a double-layer NATO though?
