Re: Non CW of the Day

Another vintage chrono, this one is from one of the lesser known brands; Lorenz. It runs a Valjoux 7734.

Non CW of the Day

Love it Nigel, fabulous colour combination and I love the dial pattern. One of the few 007 specials where you have to look hard to find any 007 reference.

Non CW of the Day

Speedmaster Gemini LE on a suitably matching fitted rubber and sailcloth strap. The colours in the first photo are accurate - the orange and blue of the strap match the hands and dial perfectly. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200119/c352f6373d9418d8e6693cf3aa4708d9.jpg Where's the strap from, G...

Re: It's a list in a magazine so it must have credibility

Having bought an original Navigator, this Tissot would do me nicely.

Unplanned (well a bit) bronze oris bcpd

That looks really nice Paul. I like the stainless model as well, but that is quite a bit nicer. I particularly like the coin edge bezel with bronze watches - my Lum Tec Combat B (which I’ve owned for many years) has a coin edge bezel and the patina on the bronze alloy they use is black. The recessed...

Re: Three Vintage Speedmasters (One a New Arrival)

I have always been a 3, 6, 9 only for the layout of three sub dial chronographs. However I would break that rule for that TV dial speedy. Thanks Neil As a general rule, I also prefer the 3, 6, 9 layout as well, but I’m quite partial to a 3 & 9 bicompax layout, and I find it hard to resist anything ...

Re: Three Vintage Speedmasters (One a New Arrival)

I think you should try the tall Mark 3: I have Flightmaster which has a similarly tall case - but not the same case - but to tell the truth I'm really quite anxious about marking the sunburst finish so that it is very much a "gentle days of inactivity" watch. I actually prefer the Flightmasters to ...

Three Vintage Speedmasters (One a New Arrival)

An excellent read with the morning coffee, Gary! You really show your love and appreciation for these watches. I could’ve sworn you had more than six, though. :shock: I miscounted Steve - I actually have seven. :| I had nine at one point, but when I had my big sell off to raise a deposit for the ap...

Re: New Glycine Subs Are Out..

The dial and bezel ratio looks fine to me also, but I can’t help thinking how much a set of applied indexes and numbers would “lift” the dial. That said, that’s clearly not the ethos that this watch is subscribing to, so my observation is probably immaterial... :|

Three Vintage Speedmasters (One a New Arrival)

Please note, the narrative covers three models and continues past the several sets of photos. Of the six Speedmasters that I own, three of them are what are, generally speaking, considered vintage models. They were made in 1969, 1974 and 1979. Not one of them is a moon watch, although I do own a co...
