Re: Damasko DK12/DK13

Looks a little plain in the dial. To me, the best feature of Damasko is the case hardening. Are these hardened?

Re: You input is appreciated - weapons rule?

I voted I don't care. If people don't want to see weapons I guess I'll have to photoshop my hands out of the OTW shots. Am I the only one who noticed this jewel?

Re: A new car, and the end of an era.

Hyundai has definitely stepped up their game. Interesting how they are turning around the perception many had of them a few years ago.

Re: What is your perfect size watch?

42-44 is ideal. I'm starting to think anything bigger than 44 is too large even on my 8 inch wrist. Its personal preference, but we've all seen people pushing the envelope.

Re: Summer break

No teacher but I am enjoying a little summer vacation myself. Why only six weeks off? Is the school year in England longer than 9 months?

Re: New ZIXEN DSR1000 - Photos

Nice looking watch-the lume has that vintage patina look already. I've seen other pics where the hands looked almost pink, but your photos are much nicer. Congratulations.

Re: ETA 2824 --Grades

That's what I was thinking too. The one in my Fortis sure keeps good time. The 'tick'ing sound is a little loud I guess (possibly as much a property of the case as anything?), but it is pretty darn accurate. My Trimix has a 2636 w/GMT complication, and it too keeps great time. :cheers: The 2836 can...

He was pretty much a novelty as a basketball player. His real legacy is in all the humanitarian work he has done to aid the people of his native Sudan.

Re: Scandinavian Hooch help

Thanks for the help-I'll see if I can find Acquavit, or the others at the liquor store. Even if they don't have it they can special order stuff sometimes. The drink on the show was homemade but seems like the same type you guys mentioned. If all else fails I'll try to make some at home.

Scandinavian Hooch help

Was watching a show on the Travel Channel the other day. They were in Sweden and drinking some vodka laced with black licorice. Supposedly, its pretty popular in the Scandinavian countries. Anyone know what I'm talking about? If so, is it any good and how would I go about making it?

The watch and the straps each have their own merit-but they don't work well together IMO.

Re: this watch rocks big time!!

Its okay-don't really see it rocking anything. A nice watch, and I like Steinhart, but the only thing seperating it from about a thousand other watches is the PVD.
