Re: New Blancpain Bathyscaphe Mokarran Limited Edition

So good, but I really wish they'd have done it in grey ceramic or titanium or something other than black. My next watch is gonna be a Blancpain, wish it coulda been this one.

How big does the 42mm case wear? Here it is on my 6.5" wrist. Wears wide, but it has a short L2L. https://i.imgur.com/doHONCnl.jpg Initially I wanted this reference, but now I really want one of the new full-lume options.

I enjoyed that Zach! I have the same brass beast of a pen too... :fro:
Works better as a prop than a writing instrument, but I sure enjoy how it feels in the hand.

Shameless self-promotion, but I wrote a story about my time in lockdown and how I only wore one watch the whole time. Shame it wasn't a diver... Maybe for the next quarantine? ;) https://www.ablogtowatch.com/one-watch-quarantine-pandemic-jaeger-lecoultre-geophysic/ https://www.ablogtowatch.com/wp-c...

Re: Seiko

I used to have a Transocean Spring Drive GMT, and it remains one of my favorite divers I've ever owned. Definitely wish I still had it. The Tranny is easily one of Seiko's coolest divers to date.

Dig the original design, but I'd really like to see this one with a black or tonal alloy bezel insert that matches the dial.

Nail, meet coffin. Baselworld organizers have been nothing but absolute dicks to their clients throughout all this. The team behind W&W runs a good show, so fingers crossed for next year.

Re: New Ball Watches

Do people even buy these watches anymore? This brand has been releasing new stuff at a breathtaking clip for the last 18 months, but you literally never see them on the FS forums, or on owner wrists on IG.

Re: Ever Been Conflicted About a Watch?

I've more or less stopped wearing my two-line Pelagos, because I kinda feel like Tudor's more or less totally lost the plot, and everyone that wears them still thinks they're part of some secret club. Guess I'm in that "your favorite band sucks" phase, but I'm too lazy to sell it. Hahaha sell it to...

Re: Omega Creamsicle PLANET OCEAN 600M

This one ain't new. Really wish they'd done it with a black or grey bezel and with tonal numerals on the dial, like that white-dialed PO mod that floated around here a few years back. I know it got traded around a bit – last I heard I think Greg had it? Still my favorite Omega mod of all time.
