Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

I can't be the only one who thinks $1K for a phone is redonkulous It’s steep for sure. But considering how much people use their phones, it’s all relative I guess. Plus, most normal people think we’re crazy to spend any amount on a watch when a phone tells the time just fine! Yup, this is why I sta...

Thanks for the info.
I asked a friend of mine who makes dials and he said he doesn't think the lume dial is the same as the powdered version used on the hands. He thinks it is more of a paint. So there shouldn't be any longevity issues.

Re: Damasko DA47

I am always wonder what will happen to lume dial says 20 years later? If she need a relume or swap for a new dial if she fades and deteriorates? It would definitely fade. But I dont' think it would deteriorate. If it starts to to deteriorate you can put a stabilizer on it that will keep it in place.

Matt, if the hand functions correctly the hand needs to be removed and reinstalled.
Thanks for weighing in.


Not sure if it's that simple since it initially hits the markers dead on, then moves off.
Then the hand might be lose. No way to tell without opening it up unfortunately.

Let me know how things work out for you. At some point, I'd like to see if service on mine can correct the minute sub-dial hand alignment. https://i.imgur.com/adJTlo4.jpg No money for repair at the moment; especially since time-keeping, hand reset, etc. is good.

Hey cool, hadn't seen this Terry ! :thumbsup: :) It's funny how just changing the font, or even a logo on a watch can transform things.

Re: Bernhardt font change!

What is interesting (at least for me) is Berhardt takes the time to modify the ETA2836-2 to function as a GMT (modify the day mechanism into a GMT hand), but doesn't take the time to address the date location. Maybe they like the lack of symmetry or it just bothers me more than most? I bet most of ...
