Re: Bremont Bracelet Modification

Good job, Iain. Bremont bracelets are definitely overpriced and under-engineered (unless they have been improved in the last year or two), but ultimately, for my wrists at least, the S300/Bracelet is an extremely comfortable fit.

You sold that Zürich Weltzeit, didn’t you?
Yup. Ultimately, I found the hands a little skinny, but otherwise, a great watch with a lovely movement. 40mm if I remember rightly.

Re: In the Spring a young man’s fancy...

As I know you like a good statistic I thought I'd have a look at my own acquisitions - to see if I am also inclined to Spring purchases... Screenshot 2021-04-16 154134.jpg Apparently not - although May is a danger month. As for a suggestion, I still wonder if your Meistersinger will cut the mustard ...

Re: Watchfinder Experiences

Excellent trade IMO. We've discussed the AquaTimer before, so you will know I'm a fan.

In modern watch lore, there's probably something that precludes the combination of alligator strap and diver bezel.
