    Wow. That brings back some memories. I had a Casio ana-digi like this as a teenager in the mid eighties.

    That's really nice. Is it PVD or ceramic?

    Thank you! It’s an interesting one actually. The case is Aluminium but coated in Ceramic, which toughens it up, makes it scratch resistant and gives it that lovely matte black finish.

    My first El Primero, what a great movement! Ten times more watch than a Speedmaster that’s for sure. I really fell in love with this “Panda” configuration over the more classic EP look.

    Boldr Venture Auto received today. Replaced the stock nato which I found too thick and stiff for an existing one I had lying around.

    Don't blame you. That's really nice and the fact it's coated in ceramic must give some comfort re dropping. Always liked the El Primero but never enough to buy one. Would pick that over a Speedy any day.

    Me too, I have been in and out of the Amazon app like a fiddlers elbow.
    I gave mine to the ex wife when her watch died on her.
    I can see me having another by Friday...

    The Incoming / New Arrival Thread

    This came in a Saturday to replace the one I sold a month or so ago. Onto a Hirsch strap, what do you think?

    Thank you.

    The only gutting bit was my mum told me/asked me about it and said 'would you want it' after they'd bought it and just before Xmas. Just thought I'd not like it due to the watches i already have. Course I would mum, I love that! The actual thought going into buying the watch makes it priceless to me now.

    My drunken News Years morning purchase finally arrived today, and I have to say That went a LOT better than I probably deserved!



    Full set, new in October, professionally resized (for a sparrow), and not a trace of wear, even on the clasp.
    The blue of the dial is deeper and much more lustrous than my snap suggests.
    For just over £300 I'm pretty chuffed!

    Picked up this tasty Seiko Marinemaster today, popped it straight onto a spare mesh and it looks cracking. Strange that I wasn't even looking to buy one but hey, you know how this hobby goes!

    Not a watch...a clock

    I have been humming and hawing about purchasing one of these for months and finally took the plunge at the weekend. Bought from Julian Kampmann @ Poljot24 NOS AY-C1M cockpit clock as used in assorted Soviet aircraft including MIG-29 from 1950's until surprisingly recently. Apparently straight copy of LeCoultre "Chronoflight" cockpit clock from the 1930's.



    Makes for an interesting desk clock IMO.
    Usual first rate service from Julian BTW.

    Back in a pre-ceramic after a great run of moderns and I just can't explain how good it feels. It joins a line up of the other anniversary models (Sea Dweller and Explorer II) but it feels like a Rolex should, as much as the new models have by a million miles a superior bezel and bracelet I've got that same feeling I've missed since my old 16600 departed.

    A great service by Ramsden's of Whitby;

    I'd say its the bezels and cases that ruin the new models.
    Give me a steel bezel any-day ahead of ceramic.
    Great watch btw.

    Local guy had this one for sale, PAM51, serviced this summer. Never had a Panerai, and my wrists are quite on the scrawny side, so the 40mm kind of works. It's still thick and heavy!

    These are cool; mine keeps surprisingly good time. Just got to remember to wind it every day!

    Carl makes a really good stand for these (although not at the moment)

    My first Rolex. The Sea Dweller 126600

    L1170006.jpg

    Today, after 2 months on my wrist, I can confidently say I'm amazed.
    There's nothing I don't like about this watch, but I can write pages about what I like. The main reason I picked this watch over the sub is size. At 43mm it beautifully fill my 7.5*» wrist. Lots of presence and punch.
    Let's start from the top side, the Bezel. I love its liquid / wet anthracite appearance that shines and sparkles same way the sapphire crystal does, together they look like if they were made of one single material.
    The Cyclops, it's like a jewel that it does not get in the way at all but whenever you look at the watch under a certain low angle the cyclops looks like a diamond or a water drop on top of that crystal. The magnifying power is so handy and I really can’t understand how or why some criticize Rolex for adding it. If it was not there on those deepsea models that was because Rolex was not technically able of doing it kit because it was a design language. The design language won’t exclude the cyclops in Rolex word, It’s in their DNA.
    Dive a bit more, we get to the Dial. It's matte black but under sunlight it becomes lighter, a dark gray, it complement the silvery look of the steel case and bracelet. The Visibility is indisputable, the blue chromalight is mesmerizing and that red lettering is a small line that makes all the difference.
    The Sea Dweller 126600 is a deep sea diver, so let's dive deeper, right into the Movement. After one week, the watch is almost as accurate as my Apple watch. I'm not a technical guy and my brain gets dazzled by the mere thinking of how these moments can track time so accurately, so I better leave that abyss and resurface, this time at the opposite side of the watch, the Back-Case. I've always wondered why Rolex leave the backcase of most of its models blank, The first time I looked at the back of one of these blank cases I thought it was a fake! Thankfully, with the Sea Dweller, Rolex decided to make it special again by adding a circular line of text on it. This Case back sinks into the wrist making the watch wears much lower, looks slimmer and more comfortable than a normal 14, 15 mm case height. I had it under sweaters, shirts and cuffling, it just goes with anything so so well.
    Moving down north or south of that sexy case we get into the macho aspect of the watch, The 22mm Bracelet. The wide lugs / wide bracelet mix give the watch a great balance, feel, stance and comfort. One of the reason I prefer Rolex over the majority of watch brands is actually its bracelet design. I think that nothing out there beats the oyster or the jubilee design. I was afraid the brushed steel on the Sea Dweller and probably all Rolex divers could feel a bit dull or opaque compared to the polished center links counterpart but I was surprised that the matte shines in a very particular way.
    To the oyster-lock now, what can I say about it, pure genius. The diving extension was taken upon delivery, I was still left with the amazing 20mm glide-lock. Together with the boutique's watchmaker we resized the watch in a way that the glide-lock now sits halfway the adjustable zone. My wrist can get fatter or slimmer as it wishes now, who cares, the glide-lock will get me covered.
    Sorry for the long read.
    Thanks for reading ;-)
    PS: no idea why I don't see the picture I post above but rather it's number only.

    That is lovely. Plus a big thank you for buying it. It was hanging around on SC and I was on the verge of PMing Sish a couple times. Happily my watch goals for this year remain intact.
