Re: Meet Elsie

Lol. Just keep expensive leather goods out of harms way for a few months. Sometimes the dog devil speaks to lab pups. :)

Re: Limes Day/Date coming soon

Once you get past the name, to me they offer solid German quality, Ickler case work and prices that are attainable. I've been thinking about one of the Endurance chronos for a few months. Although I'm sure I will take a bath if I decide to sell it

Re: Looking for tuna bracelet

It's there, but you have to drill way down into their Seiko bracelets to find them.

Re: Looking for tuna bracelet

I just received a PVD Tuna bracelet from Strapcode today. 21.5mm at the lugs (for '09 production or later) and it tapers into a fairly nice ratcheting clasp. It's available as a Oyster or Endmill style. Also, single sided screws in the adjustment links for easy removal. I'm going to put it on a SBBN...

Re: Any experience or thoughts on Oris?

I have two Oris divers now, and I've had two or three others previously and I've been well pleased with all of them. Solid Swiss build quality.

Re: New Perrelet Lab Collection

I'll state the obvious and say I really like the Seacraft collection, even the big 45mm chrono. And, they can be had for very reasonable prices for used ones. Their watches look to be very well finished as well.

Re: My Father's watch

Peace be with you and yours. My dad passed suddenly in 1990, and I was the recipient of his GMT Master. When I wear it now, I can still envision it on his wrist even all these years later. It's quite special. Wear it in the best of health.

Three pairs of their Western Packers in my closet. They have all been rebuilt at least once. Helluva boot.

Re: Watch link remover tool?

Bob Davis sells sells a reasonably priced one that has a body made from fiberglass resin and it comes in two versions. One with a longer pin for Omegas and one for pretty much everything else. It's a well made tool for the money. I think he posts at Timezone and Watchnet.

Love it. I've had several Oris divers and they have all been great watches. No issues at all, just solid performers.

Re: CW's new C60 Trident Chronograph Pro 600 Dive watch

I like it. Seems to be a reasonable size for a 600m chrono and I like the color combo. I doubt I would spend the dollars for a new one, but I would certainly look closely at a gently worn used one.

I do love Aquadives. And thanks for rescuing that pic for me. I have a BS 300 and a NOS 77 not pictured. I'll post them later.

Re: Bamford Watches article

I think I read a Bamford review on aBlogtoWatch not long ago. They asked the question, at what point does it stop being a Rolex. I don't know the answer to that one, but I certainly don't find any Rolex sport watch in need of modification.
