    I've got the blue version and I love it.

    I don't mind the Cyclops, but if I was going to remove it, I think I would try a hot knife.

    An average daily rate of -4 seconds is pretty good for a mechanical watch. It's within COSC parameters in fact.

    They look great, and I'd probably have one by now, but for the difficulties with many microbrands - not many are made, they sell out quickly, and import duties are often involved if you're in the UK.

    Nice one.

    Loads of them aren't though. There are loads of "perlon" or "perlon style" straps which aren't actually made of the specific type of Nylon called Perlon.

    Hence the question about the...

    Just in case anyone here knows.

    What is the origin of the "perlon" strap?

    And why are they called that? As far as I know Perlon is a trade name for a type of Nylon. How did it get applied to a...

    I don't have contents insurance, and mostly keep my watches on the bathroom window ledge. I live in a shared house with like 5 other people. Different worlds.

    Yeah, I was gonna say, lume won't age in the same way that tritium did, but otherwise stuff should fade, rot and corrode just as well as it did 60 years ago.

    Nice looking, but a 2 year battery life is off putting for me. Realise it's something of a trade off for the simulated mechanical sweep, but that's not important to me.
