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. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/Y3sBENJcpS5pf84MYxGzoslO3Xt5-1ihG4If...

Is that a feature?
No. The feature is the leaky crown, the benefit is the flooded case.

Re: Yobokies shroud video on IG

Good video Terry. I’ve got questions:

- is it available in other than gold trim?

- does the chapter ring line up good?

- is the case (lugs) dlc black stainless or is it plastic like the stock shroud?

- will you do Triplock? ;-)

Re: New clasp on the Speedy!

I got my speedy about a year ago from Hoppy's chop shop so it didn't include a bracelet. I am mostly a nato dude but I keep coming back to wanting a bracelet for it. What is the recommended setup for a 2015 3570.50, the part #'s listed by OP? Lemme guess. Ed bought it on the bracelet, but then sold...

Look for the later model bracelet with screw links. ;-)

You can use the screw link end links on the pin bracelet. There is a long thread on WUS (I’d link but I can’t find it right now) but some searching will locate it.

Re: Ever sold a watch because of weight?

Yes. I’ve sold every U-series Sinn I’ve owned because of weight. 45mm Planet Oceans too. I loved all the larger, heavier watches I’ve owned but when something had to go it was the heavy ones first. Since I wear most of mine on nato it was an easy choice.

Re: Shogun vs Pelagos

^ I agree it’s not actually thick, but the style is rather slab-sided and we’ve already talked about lug hole placement.

While I like the thinner case (and movement) of the BB58, the side photos indicate it follows the same design and lug hole placement, albeit on a smaller scale.
