Re: Blue Dial Sealander Automatic in Stock

Looks to be a similar blue to the C65 Classic LE with a metallic shimmer. Coupled with the gloss lacquered finish, I bet this'll look stunning when 'proper' pics start to surface. I've got a soft spot for the aforementioned watch and I'm seriously tempted by a blue auto now. I should probably get bi...

Looks like it was a great day out. Particularly like this photo showing various steps of CNC machining the case from the steel rod :thumbup:

Could be the perfect launch for a 36mm Sealander. :wink:
Strictly no diamonds though

I think it'd take a little more than the recent investment money though.

Re: NPD T4 project

Would prefer an applied logo at 12, and not lumed. To use lume in too many areas would make me think of a kickstarter where just because something can be lumed it is. Sometimes less is more in terms of design and as a tool style watch it could be more of a gimmick without any real function. I would...

Re: Is less more?

It's a yes from me. I went up to around 12 watches about 2 years ago and can genuinely say I didn't enjoy the 'experience' of owning them. Buying them was great though :D I really liked the individual watches, but felt forced into wearing them all. Just leaving the others in the box to wear one I wa...

Re: NPD T4 project

There is a very strong feeling that the use of the #tide 2 part bezel would enhance the looks along with changing the ceramic to a matte finish. Changing over to the tide bezel AND a matte ceramic bezel across the board would carry a fair degree of risk imo. The MK2 and MK3 C60s have been highly su...

Re: CWL of the day

New arrival. Couldn’t resist temptation! :lol: Prettiest CW I’ve had, I think. ADCD0380-1A22-4AE7-807D-07F4C64BAB0F.jpeg Looks bloomin' fantastic Steve. I've got the white GMT/bracelet on pre-order, but I'm still going back and forth between that and the black. Your excellent photo really does not ...

Re: Stick or twist - What next after 'Trusty Steed' Kevin?

No firm date Chris and you may well be correct. They know my #2 option car had a production date of Wk28, has been partially built but is now waiting for Semi-conductors / chips and we are on Wk35. When will the chips come in? Who knows? It could be 2 weeks, or 6 weeks or maybe longer. I'm not sure...

Re: Longines Conquest VHP

I think the idea with these is that you shouldn't need to adjust the date and therefore an adjustment mechanism doesn't exist afaik. These are 'clever' watches on the face of it, but I had to return the 36mm VHP I bought because the firmware kept screwing up the positioning of the hands upon pulling...
