Re: Aqua Lung Leman (2100-1130A-64B) Any owners out here?

I was a really big fan of BP's of this era. I've always loved this one. It's both a "better" and "nicer" watch than the 36 mm Explorer 1. However, I have zero interest in owning any BP after hearing many horror stories about servicing them (crazy price, shitty quality, fragile movements, etc.). I t...

Re: Aqua Lung Leman (2100-1130A-64B) Any owners out here?

The Aqua Lung is a brushed finish, not bead-blasted. To each, his own...but mine is a much-loved piece. BP is rumored perhaps to be working on reviving the line or releasing a worthy successor. At 38mm and on the bracelet, the combination of finishing on the Piguet movement, its thinness combined wi...

Re: New IWC Spitfire Collection

I think in house movements are so stupid as it raises prices and servicing costs. ETA really threw people into a panic, but their actions backfired on them as Miyota was ready to pump out as many 9015s as the micro market needed. Now they forced others to put out in -house movements, and yet none a...

Re: new blancpain fifty fathoms automatique

brushed titanium really changes things. +1 This one has my attention. Now if they could just find their way to get rid of the 'Blancpain' engraving on the side of the case it would be perfect. I like the engraving. [emoji56]. I don’t even notice it on the wrist. It wouldn't be a showstopper for me,...

Re: new blancpain fifty fathoms automatique

Looks good though I maybe would have liked to have seen a different set of markers/hands to set it apart from the SS version. It's good that it's not a LE though. :thumbsup: I would definitely get this over the SS version if I was shopping for a FF now. BP and to a lesser extent...JLC are the only t...

Re: New Citizen Promaster Tough

If they axed the date, the watch would look so much better. (Just talking aethetics, of course.) ;)

I realize many need/want a date.

And yes, at least more choices now besides the INOX.

Re: New Citizen Promaster Tough

I like these much more than the Inox for several reasons...solar powered (so never need to open the watch for battery changes), a few mm smaller and thinner (there really no reason why the Inox is so big and the movement spacer they must use must be laughably big if you take the back off), and the c...

Re: OK, admit it... which watch brand names can you just not get past?

Names only bother me if they're bad to an extreme. like bagelsport. i'm more annoyed by bad logo design (or dial positioning). like borealis' generic times new roman. or christpher ward at 9pm with open space at 12. i don't even mind the "logo" font for CW, just can't stand it at 9. Yes and yes. So...

BOR trumphs a strap by a wide margin and the slightly larger IWC case is meaningless here.

Raided the safe box on Monday to pick a few pieces that needed some wrist motion. It's been awhile since I last wore some of these.

Re: Can I pull this off?

Dress watches can be worn a little smaller than other watches so w/o knowing your wrist size...? I make a general rule that 36mm is the bare minimum that watch needs to be for me. After all, the original Exp1 still looks great on a variety of wrist sizes. My wrist is 6.75"-7" depending on the time o...

A pic of mine: https://i.imgur.com/RY86SqF.jpg Good to know they were once capable of positioning the date window correctly.

Re: Damasko DH1.0

The issue Matt had was with Damasko service. I think they wouldn't fix his movement under warranty and instead chraged him for the work And if I am not mistaken it came back to him broke. Maybe I am wrong on that. But I am pretty sure they didn't help much with it. That's about it, more or less. An...

Cool watch, has a bit of an IWC 3536 vibe to it.

My 3536 to compare against it. At 42mm, it hits the mark. ;)

Re: Greg Stevens GSD 2A diver

With a l2l of 53mm, it's understandable why Brice probably felt it wasn't a keeper. The pvd case/bracelet aged look is the thing that stands out about that model...not available any longer.

The pilot doesn't quite have the charm.

I don't think BP has announced a Ti bracelet for this yet. If/when you order, that can be verified easily enough though.
