They went to the door and asked the attractive lady who answered if they could spend the night there. "Oh, it's such a terrible w...

Nothing stay the same forever, you have small parts and oil working together. Temperature might affect the operation too, but it seems that the difference is minute.

Looks like a new bezel insert too. Nice mod, as always Carlo.

All these STO pics made me put mine on, too.
Thank you and yes, I forgot about that... the bezel is ceramic and lumed. :grin:

The other night I was invited out for a night with the girls. I promised my husband that I would be home by midnight. Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easily. Around 3 a.m., a bit loaded, I headed for home. Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hallway started...

As the last guests departed the affair, his wife, Helen, turned to her oldest friend, Jodi. “Well, I’m sure Joe would be pleased,” she said. “I’m sure you’re right,” replied Jody, who lowered her voice and leaned in close. “How muc...

I don't know about maturation but change certainly happens.

Re: Deep Blue's Master 1000 2.5

I had only a couple of the cheaper ones, not too bad. In my opinion the above are pretty nice design but very poor combination of colors. I would much prefer something all black and chrome or blue and chrome in addition to the above. Then again a Seiko Turtle might work just as well... :grin:

I jus can't get around the weird hour hand
I think the problem is that the hour hand is a mismatch with the minute hand... plus it is a little too thin. These are two different styles.
