    Thanks David. I'm afraid the Mil-Spec went in trade against the ALS

    Oh well if thereís ever a watch to trade it for then I suppose the ALS is an excellent candidate. Enjoy it, it looks like a beauty

    Seriously, I'd be interested in your appraisal and photography of these two. The GS I own and I'm currently debating whether or not to keep it. It's a stunner and very difficult to photo (I had to get help). The ALS I consider to be one of the most beautiful watches ever made but I will never own one so it would be great to see some proper pics, if you have time.

    Cheers. Got it from Bicester Village, with extra "Privilege" discount. Was the only GMT that caught my eye in the shop. It's 42mm. Wears well. And I have small wrists.

    Picked up this lovely thing from Fawad of these pastures last week. First outing to work and it looks stunning.

    Only problem is having to take it off to look at the back!

    Sorry for my terrible photography...

    The Incoming / New Arrival Thread

    This little vintage re-issue, sporting a genuinly vintage and rather beaten-up NATO for full authentic looks:


    Bloody 19mm lugs so need to live with a squeezed-in 20mm strap or get sourcing a 19.....

    Itís nicely domed, keeping the vintage vibe - in fact, a slight watch but with the dome and on a NATO, weíre bordering on double biscuit thick (standard Ginger Nut type)

    Been yearning after a new watch for a while now. As funds do not allow the purchase of what I actually want (yet - I'm expecting a bit of a windfall in a week or two) I've blown part of the current watch fund on this:

    https://drop.com/buy/eterna-kontiki-automatic-watch



    Should arrive sometime in November and Eterna's Kon-Tiki / Tangaroa watches hold a sort of special meaning for me as my Grandfather was an avid sailor and boat builder who was inspired greatly by Heyerdahl.
    I was never really close to him through distance and some spat he and my father had but when my own life circumstances mirrored his own in some way I grew a greater understanding of him and made more of an effort when we did meet. I felt that this would be a suitable reminder of him and his achievements as the only reminders of him I now have are some faded photos and an oil painting of his cameraman Raka in high seas.

    Minase Divido. This has won at the Game of Watches. Review coming.

    Notice anything unusual about the bracelet?

    That is lovely and a great bit of forum team work. The seller listed about 4 or 5 seriously rare pieces at great prices, I wonder who grabbed that PRS-14.

    Well done you and good work by Bond 👏👏

    Thanks

    Fantastic. The size is superb. I thought I’d find it too small (I have a Tudor GMT and Harrods) but it immediately felt right. I was honestly a bit concerned collecting it today as hadn’t seen one on a bracelet and was just worried I feel it was too small.

    I can see me getting a lot of wear out of it. It is very similar to a Rolex Sub in feel and size

    Yes like the older 5 digit variants but with modern quality to the finishing. The case dimensions are very well balanced in my opinion.

    I can definitely see myself getting another.

    Sorry mate didn’t twig who the reply was from initially! Have you still got the GMT? That’s my favourite at present but can see this running it close.

    I used to love the ceramic model subs/GMT’s but having these Tudors I have a real love of the non ceramic ones now.

    Yes still have it, it hasnít seen any wear to be honest. Iíve kept it stickered up for itís next owner, as quickly decided it was a little too much for my scrawny wrists.

    The ceramic bezels look very clinical to me, where as the older aluminium inserts look just right.

    Lucky to get the call on this on Saturday and collected today.

    Not normally a gold watch person but this is pretty cool.

    The bracelet is just amazing. Quick release, every link can come out, micro adjust on the clasp is genius. Iím a fan.

    And the dial is stunning as you would expect.

    Looks great.

    Was chatting to a friend only the other day how the Ďnewí Overseas was the best resolved out of all the luxury sports watches, exactly for those reasons... when you buy it, do you get all three straps?

    Yes you get all 3 strap included.

    The thing is with the Overseas you can actually buy them and without a premium. And if you shop around you can get a good deal. Mine was new in March 2019 and I got it at a great price and its like new.

    Just have to say thatís a fantastic unit of measurement. Would like to see the ginger nut adopted as the standard unit of measurement for watches in future.

    I like the idea of 3 straps included. I had a Cartier roadster chrono many years ago, it came with the bracelet, a brown leather strap and a black rubber-ish strap. 3 looks in one. I never trusted the quick change mechanism after I almost lost the watch when skiing after it released at one lug. Lucky I noticed.

    Yes, from literally the worlds worst advert. Lots of messages and requests for extra photos later I finally plucked up the courage. Seems good so far, awaiting the invoice via email now. At least it arrived quickly. Unfortunately the worlds most garish strap was not included
