    With up to 1k then Iíd definitely aim for something really good.

    The hydro Sinns look fantastic. Iíve never owned one as I worried about servicing but the effect of the oil is really cool.

    Iím in two minds on this. On the one hand I think itís a mistake to think the roughly 30 year revival of mechanical watches will continue. Think what happened to pocket watches once lifestyles and...

    I know what you mean, but think this now reflects the beat rate of the movement so it is actually more precise :)

    Was intrigued when I spotted this new generation on Gnomon. What do you think? Like the new hands - back to the classic shape but with an update to the middle. Look great! What is the bezel made of -...

    I think this is one the best iterations - brushed hands, hex screws and signed crown all make it feel a bit more luxurious than the 007. And the full lume plots hark back to the original as your...

    Missed this thread first time round. What an amazing and eclectic collection you now have! And really does put the market price of Rolex watches in perspective.

    Old favourite Railmaster today newly fitted on an Uncle Seiko ď1171Ē bracelet. The combination is lovely and lightweight, plus slightly jangly, which makes the watch very comfortable and gives a nice...

    Finally got around to this. With a metal bracelet tool, instead of the bendy plastic one I had before, the pins came out fine. I can confirm that the bracelet fits perfectly on a Railmaster (2500...

    I had a SBDW005 a while ago and agree with both the love and the criticism. In the end the thing that did it for me it was the kinetic movement. Fine if itís your only watch but not great in a...

    You were mostly right - itís now changing over two days at a time!

    Like the pun :) Good to know - Iíve worn mine a lot over the last year so hoping it will be a rare problem which I can get fixed when Iím back in the UK. Glad my warranty got extended to 5 years!

    Just happened to my October 2019 watch. Pretty gutted. I bought from a central London AD so doubt it had been on the shelf and thought this had been fixed by then.

    Glad to hear itís not just me! Can I ask a very basic question - did you push the pins out in the direction the arrow points? Thatís what Iíve been doing but then started second guessing myself!

    Great write up dkpw. How did you find removing links? Iíve fitted mine to a Railmaster (2403 generation in 39mm which I think has the same midcase as a Speedmaster Pro) and agree the end link for us...

    Missed the link!

    Just gave that a quick try with a watch with an unmolested NATO. Fun to try but think itís not for me - didnít like the 4 layers of material I ended up with under my wrist.

    I do the same as Normunds. I find that the metalwork on 3 ring zulus is too heavy looking for a lot of watches.

    One suggestion instead of the lighter. Iíve read that a soldering iron is a safer way to heat the cyclops with less risk to the rest of the crystal, gasket, etc

    I was getting really close and that picture without the cyclops was a big factor. Looks really lovely and I think the upgrades make it worth the premium over the standard Turtle. I swerved and got a...

    The worst thing is that most of that it isnít even actual cost cutting - the additional cost of a screw back, spring bars etc. is peanuts compared to the cost of the watch. Itís deliberate value...
