Dozed off listening to him butchering the pronunciation of Synergies Horlogères, Johannes Jahnke & H Moser “at sea”.

Re: Erika’s original

Not gonna post a picture but I can confirm after drying the two pieces appear structurally identical. So, aside from the risk of ending up with unpatinated bronze hardware, I’d conclude you are good to go (yes, I know you decided to do that before the test was performed).

Re: Erika’s original

I’ve done a test for you. Erika sent me a sample of the Vintage, and I poured boiling water on a piece, then left it there for 20 minutes with no apparent molecular change. It’s still as stretchy as it was before the experiment. I took a short video but couldn’t work out how to upload it so a photo ...

Re: Erika’s original

These things have been in military conflicts and in space. If the hot tub isn’t too hot for you, then it should be no problem, but if the hardware is bronze, it may be reset by the chlorine. The SS version should be fine though.

The GMT Aventurine is almost certainly on the way - I've been working with Elshan on the design of it. Early days yet but 95% probability of it happening.
Phil, any chance you could float the idea of a red GMT hand & red accents instead of yellow? They’ll look fab on the dark blue Aventurine.

Re: The Meraud Bonaire Dive Watch

Same movement as in new generation of Zodiac. Reworked ETA with larger power reserve. Yes , the Stp 1-11 has a 44hr power reserve compared to the ETA's 38hr's . The STP1-11 also has an extra jewel in the barrel bridge . Two reviews I read state that the STP 1-11 is a clone of the ETA 2824-2, and su...

Re: Three From Zelos

They also have 2 more divers in the plan and a GMT with an ETA 2893 and, if the talk is to believed, an Aventurine dial.

A few members here have Mako divers which are terrific looking (IMHO), well-built and great value.

Re: My Stunning C60 Trident Pro Bronze

If you let the patina burn in naturally you shouldn’t get green - I think you only get that with eggs or vinegar or leaving it on a shipwreck for a year, so you should be good. I have mine on an MN with bronze hardware - expensive but very comfortable and personally I’m not a fan of the extra bulk y...

Re: My Stunning C60 Trident Pro Bronze

Welcome- nice pick up. They patinate quickly - it’ll be nice and brown within a few months.

Re: Is This Normal for a New Auto Trident

The Sellita SW200-1 has a 38 power reserve so if you’ve worn it all day, it should run for a full day at least once you take it off.

If you wear it loose it may not wind properly, but I mean really loose, like a charm bracelet. Monitor it and if it continues to misbehave, send it back.
