Re: FloridaPhil - SOTC June 2018 - Diver's Edition

Really nice collection Phil. I have the same C60 GMT but 38mm (my favourite CW). My 43mm is the white dial with black bezel. Have you seen the new collection of Zelos Makos? They’re on pre-order now with a larger crown and a steel bracelet. I’m tempted by the Orange / Black PVD but sadly on a stand ...

Re: Case materials...thoughts?

Having bought my first Titanium watch a couple of weeks ago, I am a convert. The 44mm watch in question is half the weight of the 43mm C60 in Steel, and that makes a huge difference to its wearability. I used to think the metal looked strange, even artificial, but when brushed it doesn’t look much d...

Re: Did you know? Tip for posting links.

Thanks for the handy tip. Have pasted links in a few times and some of them take up several lines. I had to re-read this a couple of times for it to sink in.

Re: Review - The Zelos Mako 500m Dive Watch

Resurrecting this thread because the next release of Zelos Makos are almost ready for hatching, including a bracelet option, a black PVD version, new colours and a larger crown. May be slightly cheaper than the last round for the Tropic + leather versions. A few members have these (me included) and ...

Re: Non CW of the Day

Out of interest, which time zones are you monitoring there? Both hands are on the UK at the moment because I won’t set the main hour until I arrive. The bezel is set to -6 as I work with a lot of folks on US Central time. I usually leave my CW C60 GMTs to UK time, and put the yellow hand on -6, so ...

Bronze patina experiment (Fratello)

Despite my preference for natural patina on bronze, here’s a fascinating article from Fratello Watches on forcing the process with some great before-after-after cleaning pictures.

Re: Time on Forum vs How often you post

I try to read every day, often late at night after work has died down, and since the recent discussions about the forum quietening down, I have tried to post more, but sometimes the point I’d like to make has already been made. Do I make it again, which generates noise but doesn’t really contribute?...
