Re: Daft thread: Moly, Ratty, Badger or Toad?

Still rather Moly here. On the one hand (or is that wrist?) learning from the experienced folks but on the other learning from myself. A small collection with a lot of variety (enjoying them all in their ways) teaching me what is important in "the next step". Which I suppose is learning to be more o...

Re: The world of mechanical chronographs

Thanks for chiming in Gary. i was getting a bit concerned - a chat about chronographs and "Where's @gaf1958"? :) Umm, yeah. 2 gorgeous pieces you present there, no risk at all. As I look at that Zenith today, just wow. And wow again. It's a world I don't feel well equipped to understand, much as I t...

Re: The world of mechanical chronographs

Good shout to have a look again at that thread, Guy. Inspirational indeed. There's something about a mechanical (in particular) chronograph that makes these watches something that other watches can't be. More elements to introduce in different ways. For sure the Farer Moritz is the slam-dunk when it...

Re: The world of mechanical chronographs

Oh that's a good shout, Patrick. I've seen Teddy's positive review. 49mm L2L really pushes my comfort zone (seemed OK on Teddy and we have the same wrist size, but only OK) and I'd really have to try it on. Chances of doing that in this part of the world? Nil. But I like the watch and my 38mm Khaki ...

Re: The world of mechanical chronographs

Umm, nah :) A big miss for me. Tried a bit too hard to be cheerful/bold. The C60 "Bumblebeast" however looks fantastic but not a snowflake's chance in hell my wrist could pull it off. Here's another 2894-based watch (like that blue Longines) that I rather fancy. But again, are modules a good idea? 1...

Re: The world of mechanical chronographs

I am across that Longines thanks Steve. It's one with the 2894 inside that I am trying to get inside the "wisdom" of.
And yes, the C65 Chrono just looks "off', too busy in the minute track and somehow lopsided to me. Which is a shame as my C65 Trident Diver wears so well.

Re: The world of mechanical chronographs

VERY interesting ideas there @monkeymax! I hadn't really considered Farer, always thought of them as having one too many colours. And to my taste, the Carnegie reinforces that :) But each to their own. That said: the Moritz variation does appeal a LOT. A bit of the Longines Avigation Big Eye about t...

The world of mechanical chronographs

I don't get to try on icons of horology very often but last weekend I had the new Speedy Moonwatch 3861 Hesalite on my wrist. I liked it. But the price! With my resources - can't go there and I've thought it through a lot. It's not a function I actually have much use for, a dive watch bezel suits th...

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

Brilliant watch, more than fair price. One of the real stars of W&W.
Can my skinny wrist pull off a 50mm L2L? Not a chance. Damn!

That is just gross. Got about a minute in before I started dry-reaching and clicked the off button.

Link posted elsewhere by @Wis. Recommended if you have a spare 21 minutes. Water resistance would be impossible given how the 2 sections interact.

Re: White is the new black

Good choice! I have a black auto of same. Collection staple.
Masterful dial. So much info on the dial and at the same time super-legible. Hands catch reflections really well.
