Re: Doxa offering help to the vintage owners now!

And recent WUS Doxa forum post that they don't even own 1200t parts! It was barely a year that brand new 1200t still available for sale. Where is Doxa heading now?

Re: Gay Frères bracelet

Yes they are alive well. Rolex bought them and now they are assimilated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro that's new to me. When did that happen? Rolex had always used them to make their bracelets. Started the same way they did with all their other suppliers. They bought in a bit then a bit m...

Gay Frères bracelet

Apparently, they are selling for USD800 or more depending on the model. What's the thrill for her? Are they still in bracelet biz?

Re: Seiko SBCM023 Perpetual Calendar

Any idea if Seiko discontinue that movement or upgrade to GS level? I should not have said GS but perhaps 7C43 Tuna to that price range.

Seiko SBCM023 Perpetual Calendar

Seeing this sold for USD800 :shrug: I just shook my head. Probably the biggest jump in price for a 10 year old Seiko. I remember those were USD250-300 new not long ago. https://forums.watchuseek.com/f29/fs-seiko-diver-quartz-sbcm023-perpetual-calendar-skx-haq-5098967.html What's the current close eq...

Re: The Forstner Komfit "JB" Mesh Watch Band is Back!

So worth the coin. Just like the original and very, very comfortable. Great for vintage. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49317490916_493cbfdecf_b_d.jpg That combination looks fantastic. Yes! Vintage vibe for old sport like myself. P/S It's also probably looks good on an vintage 300t DOXA! :fro:

I’m sure Sinn would sell an EZM2 black bezel and it could swap right on. No?
I think they will but i also own a EZM2 so it does not really bother me. I will keep her original bezel.

Sinn 403 Diver Professional

New to me 403. Before owning her numerical dial appears a cheap citizen dial face to me. But, I still decided to give it a go. Once she arrives my opinion changes. It's easier to tell time with my weary eyes and her right hand crown not pressing on forearm like an EZM2. The shortcomings are both tin...

Sinn CH124 Sea King

As you all aware this one came out last year Oct 2018. I am glad to own one for her wearable size and clean dial of 556. The only shortfall is her out of place date window. I was being told 40 pcs went to the crews. She is a keeper with U1 professional which i think they all did a great job!! For th...

Tired of micros. It’s so easy to start any old watch company these days.
I like the good old days when the only micros are kazimon, korsbek, UTS and zinex. They are timeless even to today standards.
