    I have looked into Casios and Suuntos searching for a holiday watch which would give the day of the week, alarms and timer functions. I considererd the GW-2000, but the proprietary strap is too...

    Re: Centre minutes mechanical chronos

    I think the 5100 is overrated. So is the 7750.

    IMHO, anything beyond time, date and bezel is best served by quartz, be it analog or digital. :twisted:

    Re: Sinn 656 vs Damasko DA36

    Couldn't have put it any better.

    FWIW, the 656 doesn't look small on my 9" wrist, but I also wear 34mm watches (the GG-W-113, though on a 20mm strap). :D

    Re: PRECISTA Commander Titan

    Not unlike tritium vials, the electronics of a quartz movement make for a limited-time investment. I assume a lifetime of about 25 years for such a watch (with or without vial replacement), and...

    Re: Thoughts on Stowa Airman and Speedbird III

    Personally, I find the Mark 11 dial the easiest to read.

    I prefer the original non-serife font, though:

    Re: Centre minutes mechanical chronos

    I think the Breguet system of having a large 15-minute subdial is an interesting alternative to the center-minute chronograph.

    Re: Centre minutes mechanical chronos

    Yes and no. For short durations of, say, less than 15 minutes, I actually find the subdial easier to read. It also depends on the size of the hour markers ... on the PRS-17C, e.g., the minute chono...

    I would say that the Speedbird III is in a different technical category, what with extra antimagnetic protection (and perhaps a low-pressure-resistant crystal seating? I am not up-to-date on the...

    Are you sure they haven't decided that they can't be arsed with the SZ01 and taken the easy option by plopping an ETA 2892 with DD 2073 into the Sinn 142 case. :wink:[/quote]

    Yes. :)

    Re: Full Lume

    The Citizen divers I have seen use the regular (lumed) hands over a lumed dial ... the aesthetic effect is less than the brands using all-black hands over a lumed dial.

    If it is for looks, I think the Damasko is outstanding.

    If you want the full lume dial for functionality, go tritium vials. :)

    Apollo XV that was. Took two contraband Waltham watches, too, and one of them was worn on the moon when the Speedy's crystal popped.
