    That Sealander Elite looks fantastic. I have seen Christopher Ward’s Ti casework in the metal, and it’s right up there with the best in the titanium business.

    I reckon there are a few. For instance, rare German brands like Damasko say ‘watch guy’ to me.

    But there are undoubtedly borderline brands. You might buy a Speedie or an Oris because you’re a WIS...

    Automatic movement, carbon case: Squale T-183

    In this style (carbon case, distinctive look), is Squale the only competition? Squale offers the T-183 watch in a couple of colours, and they are automatics with carbon and glass fibre cases for...

    Carbon is cool for a watch case :thumbsup:

    How well do you think the carbon case will resist scratches? Better or worse than steel?

    I used to have one of the original (fibreglass case) TAG...

    I too love the watch’s look but can’t get over the price. It’s a plastic quartz that costs two-and-a-half grand!

    Breitling must be laughing all the way to the Swiss bank.

    I gather the discontinuations reflect Damasko’s move from ETA to in-house movements. But I imagine we’ll eventually see a replacement for the DS30 that features Damasko’s A26 movement.

    I like the unindexed bezel but agree that a splash of colour would make it even better. Nonetheless, Damasko could have another winner on its hands :encouragement:

    I too prefer ‘Ward’ over ‘Christopher Ward’. But in a recent YouTube interview, Mike France reported that CW’s sales had increased around 30% over the last year. Consequently, I doubt he feels the...

    I have found the name and logo unnoticeable on the wrist. They (only) stand out online, but internet photos don’t show how things look in the metal.

    My pick of the C63 bunch is the Sealander Elite (COSC, titanium, retractable crown, Light-catcher case). With the retractable crown and flawless titanium casework, the nearest comparable watch...

    Can we have a titanium case, please?

    This design is my favourite too, but can we have a titanium version, please? I wouldn't like my nickel allergy to ruin any missions to save the world. :smile-new:

    Precista Mission Timer

    After a short interlude :smile-new:, isn't the Precista Mission Timer finally on the cards?

    My vote would be for a titanium case, but I'm not holding my breath on this mission.

    I love Oris’ bracelet because it’s incredibly comfortable and distinctive. And the characteristic lugs make the watch ‘wear small’. On the wrist, my 44mm Oris looks smaller than my 42mm CW.

    These watches look terrific and they are a damn sight more special than, for example, Rolex.

    Why does Rolex do this (ignoring the owner’s wishes)?

    Rolex hasn’t bought the watch, the OP has. But Rolex is behaving as if it’s the owner, not the service provider!

    It's great to see that we still have people who are decent and honest. While I agree they should offer you something, I wouldn't ask for anything. It's doing the right thing that matters.

    You can not only change the seconds hand's colour but also ask Damasko for a 'custom build'. This WUS thread describes it: A Damasko Custom DC86 Chronograph Review to Share with the Forum

    If you request it, Damasko can change the seconds hand for a different-coloured one. It’s an advantage of Damasko being a small-ish, flexible company.
