Re: Do you like bronze watches?

A little off piste for this thread but an interesting copper dial, and surprisingly affordable for Ming

Compare and contrast - a different implementation of the CW moonphase movement.

Re: Do you like bronze watches?

A crappy montage but will give an impression https://i.postimg.cc/pT86ssZK/5106-AD43-C768-4-E3-D-8491-7-A9-A0-E4-D3-B64.jpg Are the bronze centre links bronze all the way through (i.e. where it touches your wrist) or do they have a steel lining to save the wrist from discolouration? Bronze for the ...

Re: Do you like bronze watches?

Thank you for that information. That Oris model (if it is the one on the stainless and bronze bracelet), looks interesting, though I’d need to see it in the flesh I think, to decide whether or not I would like it.

Re: Introducing Seiko Presage Prestige Line Enamel Dial, now with Spring Drive

I saw this and had the same reaction. Seiko are blurring the lines between their Prospex/Presage/GS lines. You used to have a fairly good idea what the price ranges were likely to be for any given model in one of those ranges; but no longer. They’re pushing all their prices up whilst putting their p...

Re: Can the forum format be changed?

This could be contentious... I’d agree that the forum can sometimes feel like a dark and cold place. There are periods, and occasionally topics, that provoke a lot of dialog, but in general it can feel like not a lot is happening. Personally, whilst I have Facebook account I choose not to use it as ...

Re: Do you like bronze watches?

^^ my understanding, and please correct me if I’m wrong, is that Tudor use an aluminium bronze alloy (CuAl*) as opposed to phosphor bronze alloy (CuSn*) which is the more common alloy used by most watch manufacturers including CW. Aluminium bronze tarnishes less and does not develop the green verdig...

Re: FLE #8 - Poll #5

Looks like it may depend on the 11 that voted for #4 if we have another vote between 3 & 5. The 11 who voted for #4 will have also voted for #3 and/or #5 in this poll if they were willing to buy them, or not voted for #3 and #5 if they were not willing to buy them. No switching of votes is required...

Re: C60 Apex Limited Edition

Height of approx 16.5mm with a lug-to-lug of 54mm. A beast (monster) of a watch.

Maybe price is a factor of the watch mass?
