Re: Ginault - questions answered

I asked if they were planning the original “maxi dial” model with less text, as is on the new “vintage” inspired dial. The answer was no, they believe the maxi dial needs the text to make it balanced. I disagree. They did say that they are considering different things for the future. It’s too bad be...

The strap is a vintage Iso. Hibid on IG makes nice repros for $27.

Good to know, thanks Jay. Could you attempt a photo to show the lume contrast better? Thanks.

Re: Poseidon

In the pre-release photos I thought the lume was white, but it appears yellow here. I think the bright white looked great. Is this a photo/exposure issue or is it really yellow?

Are those photos of the GMT the same watch? The first few photos where the watch is a bit in shadow look really good. The photo where the watch is in the direct light looks - dare I say - garish. If you had said it was a Steinhart I would've believed you. I like the bracelet though. I agree with bo...

SafetyStop (Dave), Ajax64 (John), and I dropped in on the Rolex preview event today. The 2018 Rolex models were size & weight accurate, but were just models, not operational. There were no Tudor models present, which was disappointing as I wanted to see the Black Bay 58. Here are my thoughts.... New...
