    Lorier Neptune arrived last week. It was a long wait but very pleased with it so far.

    Following a face to face trade with Andy this morning this is now firmly on my wrist.
    First impressions, having never tried one before are good and I'm liking the extra size and the splash of colour.

    My daily wearer and the most comfortable watch I’ve owned also pretty much goes unnoticed for a Rolex :)

    Finally replaced my stolen Darth

    With its big brother the Emperor SBDX013


    Yes I did put it on a leather strap, Horween Chromexcel hand stitched with braided heavy thread.


    The build quality is every bit as good as I had expected, the only thing I could criticise was that the bezel click felt a bit light and rattly compared to my old darth, although a bit grease under the bezel has made a big difference.


    There is no getting away from the fact that it is a very big watch and certainly won't suit everyone.


    The lume is the usual Seiko light show, and personally I prefer the new dial and hand design to my old one. I think it is better balanced and even more readable.


    At first glance I thought the dial print was fuzzy, but on close inspection it turns out that the dial has a matt almost powdery finish, I guess to reduce reflections?


    The watch arrived running +14 sec/day technically in tolerance but since it was stable I thought a quick adjustment would make it better (lost less than 2sec in 5days)

    Adjusting to the size of 40mm after wearing a 45mm Panerai Radiomir for the last few days. Swapped onto a nato to match the military-ish theme and am pleased to be trying one of these after the resurgence of Oris Pointer Date versions reminding me I always liked them. This however has a big(ger) crown than the current version and is now the 3rd watch in my small collection to be sporting a plexiglass crystal :-)

    Best acquisition lately... Cheap, fun, non derivative, very comfortable to wear, surprisingly well built, all indices aligned (that's how it's done Seiko), big grin factor, and best of all, gift from the wife to mark the birth of our second daughter. Here it is, in all its glory:

    Oris are on a proper winning streak at the minute

    It’s not the current model but dates from 2010 and is model number 01 754 7543 4064 07 5 20 53. My version has a bigger crown and plexiglass crystal vs the sapphire of the current version. The one you can buy new today is also available in 36mm and 40mm and with different dial colours and in steel or bronze cases. The model ref is Big Crown Pointer Date.

    It's a watch you just can't go wrong with. Very affordable (in watch terms), very sharp and a quality well above its price point (I can imagine everyone's eyes rolling hearing that again).

    I really wanted the SARX but at 40mm and 3 times the cost for thr same movement, I just couldn't do it. SARX is better, but not 3x better.

    Difficult to be disappointed with it. The bracelet is not the best but it's grand. Put it on some leather and it comes to life.

    This one should be with me within the hour. A Tudor Submariner 76100 blue from 1984.


  31. #6931
    Nice, bezel has a lovely colour to it.

  32. #6932
    I've fallen for it.

    Put on a leather for the time being.

    It’s arrived.

    The blue of the dial and the bezel insert varies hugely depending on lighting conditions. I’m very happy with it.

    Very nice Colin and don't those watches look so much better without the snowflake hands - in my opinion of course 😂

    Thought I'd try a bit of Shalako's photo skills.

    Stunning dial





    Just not sure if it's bracelet or Strap

    Very nice mate! That dial looks stunning in the sun.

    I actually think that version looks better on the bracelet.

    Enjoy!

    A lovely watch with Mercedes hands or snowflake. Though snowflake will set you back a couple of thousand more:-)
    Regardless, a fantastic watch. Enjoy it, Colin.
