Used Topper again, great service!
It works with pin style bracelet? Wonder if it would work on the speedy 1998/849?

Re: Should I?

Isn't the polaris alarm a $10K watch? This seems an easy choice.

Re: talk to me about sporty haq perpetual calendar (date) options for women

Was interested in the sbcm023 years ago. Wish they'd bring it back but too many eggs in the GS basket now. They come-up for sale every so often but at a premium which is still <GS money. Think they're 36mm which should work unless she's petite. The new HAQ GS GMTs with the 9F86 have an independent h...

Owned the 015 twice. This wears slightly smaller and lighter, but not by much.

Re: Damasko rust???

Maybe the watch and bracelet were wiped down with something that had another type of metal shavings, leading to galvanic corrosion? But would the coating prevent it? And what other metals could be introduced if all the steel process is the same at factory? It's the metal itself as no other metal is...

That is fantastic!

Re: Damasko rust???

Watch SS is certainly not knife edge-retention SS, which is still prone to pitting and rust if not cared for, but if the metallurgy hardening process somehow introduces more carbon, then all bets are off. I'm not sure how an hardening process can't introduce more carbon, unless it's a gimmick. Powd...

That looks great. Omega does an excellent blue. Congrats again.
Thank you.

The blue is great.

The blue wears smaller than the black and black & orange for sure, or I've gained 50lbs since last week.

I actually had to check the movement number as I couldn't quite remember how the 39.5 wore.

... And I'm head over heals. :dance: Asked Ed how it wore compared to the MM300 we all love (and hate) prior to pulling the trigger as I did not have them size the bracelet at the OB when I tried. That moment when you think to yourself "this is how the MM300 should wear but don't really give a damn"...

What is the hardening process? If it introduces more carbon to the steel then it'll happen for sure.

Re: Update: Any BLNR owners or previous?

I think I was one of the first to try a 16710 and 116710LN on SJ. Got grief when I did it on the 116710 but apparently now it’s the thing to do thanks to the stainless Pepsi. :rolleyes: I liked it a lot (especially on the 16710) but recall needing different spring bars for both?
