Re: Quick release spring bars, be careful

JLC has been using these on a lot of their new watches, which seems kinda weird to me. Renders an extremely expensive Camille Fournet strap unwearable if that thing breaks. So lame.

Re: ooooh I like this 3 hand IWC AT

Well shit, that’s super interesting. News of its improved reliability puts it back in the running for me, just didn’t realize this had already happened.

Re: ooooh I like this 3 hand IWC AT

Looks good. I think that’s the model that Jason Heaton took diving and it flooded. It was this one Edit: actually, we assume the Polaris leaked but as I recall that wasn’t confirmed. I believe the alarm crown froze and then broke. Jason suspected some seawater got it and corroded the works. I imagi...

Re: ooooh I like this 3 hand IWC AT

i was curious about my new AT as neither pusher is screw down but the crown is. Was just serviced by IWC so i assume the seals etc are all brand new. Im a bit gun-shy of getting any watch in the water without screw down pushers. Dunno if it's added peace of mind, and granted, I never tested this th...

Re: Shogun vs Pelagos

Owned both for a short while, though never understood why. Thought I'd get a Shogun to spare the Pelagos from hard wear, but I never really warmed up to it. The Pelagos is simply a fantastic watch with a lot of subtly excellent details, mine's been stupidly accurate for the 5 or so years I've owned ...

two-tone and all yellow gold dominate at our local country club :grin: i dig rose gold more than yellow gold, and while not two-tone, i yearn to "lease" the yachtmaster with the murdered out bezel on rubber someday... https://i.imgur.com/rgirJGQ.jpg Yellow gold feels crass for some reason, but coul...

Re: despite what the watch industry says is trendy, does anyone actually own/like two-tone?

Not even sure it's enough to qualify as "two-tone," but I love the gold accents on this one. Maybe that's what was so appealing about the Tunas – it was a lot more subtle, and was largely confined to bezel and crown, which yielded a pretty sweet effect. https://www.omegawatches.com/media/catalog/pro...

despite what the watch industry says is trendy, does anyone actually own/like two-tone?

...feel like I'm slowly warming to it, but literally never see enough modern examples on the wild or in the forums to call it a 'trend.' Bullshit, or do people actually like these?

(Couple favorites of mine)

Re: Oris's latest Chronoris Limited Edition

Dig the hell outta that. Somebody had one of the old ones at a GTG a few months back (chrome-plated or some shit – was showing some really neat wear) and was super impressed. Cool old chrono definitely worthy of another shot.

Genuine question: is this strategy going to hurt Rolex long-term, or will it do little more than irritate watch nerds on the forums short-term?

What about the newer black faced OP?
