    I was going to hold fire on one of these, on the basis that I have a PRS29-AM, and the two are so similar that I couldn't have both.
    But as luck would have it, my wife has adopted my AM and worn it...

    To you, maybe not, but to me it does.


    No, no, no, and no. Even though the first two may be, my wallet is not even on the beach. There might be a tenner in my shorts, but that's it. My watch is...

    To each their own. I disagree. Every time I swim, surf, SUP or just go near the water, I do so with my watch on.
    Leaving my watch on the beach while I swim seems a worse idea to me, and maybe, more...

    Sorry Dave, it isn't.
    The SD is a derivative of the Sub.
    It has an additional WR over the sub that no-one except a few undersea professionals worldwide could ever utilise.
    And that extra WR comes...

    Of course if you are ambivalent about it, and it has cost you nothing on top of the original property price, can I have it?
    Please?

    My workshop is in a farm full of (at last count 37) small lettable workshop/enterprise units. It is a thriving little community, surprisingly self-regulating and low input requirement for the...

    Although I did not take part in the Take Time project, but can vouch for Dave as a proper gent.
    A watch I sold Dave arrived with a very difficult fault to rectify, and Dave was very understanding...

    I personally think there is more hissy fit reactions and general rudeness in the public areas of the forum recently than there used to be.
    So I think the OP has a point, although making it so...

    I agree, this year they really could have forged ahead on so many fronts, using existing case designs and movement technology from previous years.

    We have discussed these guys before.
    Nice watch it may be, but it is not "military", in the proper military watch collector's sense of the word.

    I have several 3 watch collections, purely because one doesn't seem to cover all the bases.
    So I have 3 Tudors
    3 Lemania chronos
    3 other brand Lemania-powered chronos
    3 other divers

    and a few...

    Agreed, it is a much more elegantly engineered solution that means there is no requirement for the gasket O-ring to slip relative to either surface (and therefore, move, get pinched etc)

    I had a Fortis Titanium LE where the whole production was recalled because the large diameter Ti crown was too big for the thread, and a high percentage of owners had stripped the crown thread within...

    Sorry to be difficult - but the only point I made was that this specific sentence



    Is wrong. And it is.

    Seiko may not use this design, but many others, including Rolex (I merely use that as...

    I just noticed this, how unnecessarily aggressive of you.
    No need for me to try again, I made my point, which I stand by.

    I do not agree with the OPs hissy fit, but the quality of some of the paint is laughably poor, and he is right to be concerned by that.
    I also do not agree with the fools who suggest that using a...

    This is simply not true, there are lots of screwdown designs where the screwing down tightens on one of the O-rings. For instance, the best, Rolex Twinlock and Triplock crowns screw down onto an...

    I have had problems with scratchy edges on the cut ends before now, and have smoothed them off with a warm knife. Other than that I have always found them to be very comfy from the off.

    To be fair, it is possible that the watch has a replacement caseback (issued without serial number) to replace a damaged one, or because they have removed an one that was deeply engraved.

    Literally a fraction of the cost of the Daytona, and every bit as good.
    The relative pricing of the two makes a De Luca a very sensible chronograph option.

    Can I just add something?

    If you like the 13, and appreciate the design, then it is (within Sinn's range) one of the best value well-specified watches they do, especially as it uses a (slightly)...
