It must be a customs issue. Government rarely works well.

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.

It’s way exceeded my expectations...I love it... Congratulations Rob :cheers: I’m glad you like it. The old saying “photos don’t do it justice” is certainly true with this one, it’s a fantastic watch. The black version looks wonderful. I’ve considered owning both, but that would be silly. Enjoy!

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...

My buddy John and I are attending the local Rolex / Tudor preview on Wednesday, so I’ll check this sucker out. I really don’t understand the crown design, other than that they wanted to be different. The “guts” of the crown are basically like the other Rolex stuff. It comes from the historic 7924 "...
