    The link at 12 o'clock locks it and needs to be lifted up to alter the bezel. The one over 6 o'clock is just a cover.

    The bezel is locked in place by the 'clamp' at 12. It releases the bezel when you press on the marked area. It then becomes a standard 60 click bi-directional bezel. The one at six doesn't move and the bezel moves freely under it. The purpose is just a locking system...

    Thanks. Only time will tell if it plummets or not. I care neither way, as I'm a fan.

    Thanks guys, interesting stuff. I suppose that's an important device if you are using the watch as intended, perhaps less so at the office water station 😂

    This is lovely and definitely different, in a good way. Hope the wait isn't too arduous
    Well the wait turns out to be 1 night. The dealer , Vlad, sent it next day delivery so it feels like an early Xmas for me.

    Thanks mate. I do miss my sub a little (going to try for a no date one at some point) but loving the explorer. Wears really well and is really comfy.

    Well Poland to my wrist in less than 24 hours. If that doesnít tell you something about EU membership I donít know what does. Anyway less politically here are some wrist shots.







    The dial is so striking in person going from what looks like a flat black to showing the horizontal striations when they catch the light.

    Itís amazingly thin for a big date dual time watch too wearing quite small belying itís 42mm diameter.

    The clasp feels very delicate but is pretty robust. A double deployant with unequal length sides with both friction and spring locking.

    Everything about this thing screams quality.

    Fresh from SC thanks to MartinMW

    Had one in 2016 when they first came out but wasn't for me at the time so I sold it. Funny how your tastes change.

    Sourced an older bezel insert from a forum member so my '94 Pepsi certainly looks a little older.

    Was this:



    Now this:



    And in case we want to switch back, there's an easier way. With its older brother:

    I have to be honest, this makes no sense to me what so ever. But hey each to their own, I'm sure plenty of my decisions leave people puzzled.

    Is that taking a new bezel insert off and putting on an old one or having 2 of, effectively, the same watch, or both? First rule of watch collecting is never try to rationalise watch collecting! The bezel insert was easy, it's a '94 watch and i'm trying to get it back looking like a '94 watch. I think this insert is still possibly on the cusp of being period correct, possibly slightly later, so i may have to look add another but for now it adds some warmth and character (all IMO of course). Having 2 of one watch, well why not.

    The bezel. Haha at one point my wife suggested all the watches in my watch box looked identical, and I couldn't disagree so I get your second point.

    I can kind of see where you're coming from regarding the bezel, I guess I'd rather the original bezel age with the watch rather than make it look more marked up intentionally if it were mine. But again as you say no good to try and rationalise all we do ;)

    I'm totally with you on that, however the bezel I took off was a service replacement probably less than a year old so it'll be a while before that fades.

    The Incoming / New Arrival Thread

    Black Friday pick-up from Spinnaker, arrived yesterday. Iím quite pleased with it...

    I've seen a few Spinnakers and never thought very much of them, but that's really nice. A lot of microbrands tend to get one or more design elements badly wrong, but everything about that is spot on. The hammered dial texture is really cool and gives it a lot of extra depth.

    My only niggle is a personal aversion to Mercedes hands on anything that isn't a Rolex. I am slightly tempted to pick one of these up and try to source some Sinn/B&R-style pilot hands to mod it. I think those could work well with the numerals (which I really like a lot), as long as they match in proportions etc.

    That is an absolute stunner. They look great when everything mellows evenly. Far nicer than a newer sterile one. Great catch.

    Flat top 4 as well

    On that is nice, those plots are ageing beautifully. What year is it? I see the bezel pip is not following, is it a replacement? Great watch.

    Agreed on the SD, absolutely lovely.

  31. #8531
    Iíve got this coming from Belgium. Iíve had my eye on it for a while but decided to buy it today to celebrate getting a new job. Itís a 38mm watch with a landeron 48 movement. Just love the way it looks.

    Dial is signed ĎTolletí which is amusingly similar to ĎToiletí

    Thanks for the nice comments on the seadweller
    Its a 91 and the pip looks a bit lighter from photo but is same colour to the eye.
    It was one of those watches that you unwrap and think wow so well pleased and I don't need to worry about marking it as its got the distressed look already.

    I think this might just be the nicest watch Iíve had so far... oyster bracelet, smooth bezel Datejust 126200. 36mm is perfect in my eyes.

    It is a winner all the way.
    The charm of T dial 5 digit Rolexes!
    The pip being lighter shouldnít detract in any way.

    just bought this on ebay. I'd never heard of Anker before but really liked the look of it (it was described as a panda but not sure if it counts if the sub dials aren't round)

    I am really impressed by the quality of the SBBN031! It feels as special on the wrist as previous divers that Iíve owned including a Pelagos and 14060.
