    I'm just missing a bronze watch really and I think it will have to be another Baltic, the Aquascaphe Bronze. That will complete my 4 analogue watch collection with the above in mind!
  2. What didn't you like about the case back?...

    What didn't you like about the case back? Personally I cannot think of a single issue given its water resistance and I won't ever be opening it up either.

    Thanks! I'm glad I go tit, even to the point where if this was my only watch I wouldn't mind at all.

    My only wish is that I wish there were more 18mm watch strap options, everything seems to be...

    This is one of the only watches I bought almost immediately after I learned of its existence after having a watch chat with a friend as we both considered buying a Khaki Field Mechanical. He...

    Many thanks!

    I still cannot get over how nicely it is designed and sized. The brushing detailing is really nice too and always catches my eye:

    Nothing from modern: Rolex, Omega, Breitling and most recently added to the list, Tudor too.

    Yeah I can understand your reservations due to the size if you've got bigger wrists. I have a Casio F-91W that I rarely wear even though my nostalgia kicks in every time and I want...

    For the price it's a lot of watch I'd say especially with the upgrades added as it's still well under £500 for 60hrs power reserve thrown in!

    I've now done a video review which may be helpful for...

    Joseph Bonnie Tropic (silicone) on the Flieger, and Joseph Bonnie (Vulcanised Rubber) on the Baltic. Both excellent quality but the natural rubber one is obviously nicer in look and feel.

    Normally not a fan of Breitlink watches as they're often too big or flashy/blingy in aesthetics but this one is mor understated/elegant and to that end I like it!
