New one—getting over my aversion to quartz watches. Cool movement in this and I like the vintage-ish vibe.

Fortunately I don’t have he man wrists, so the 39mm works well for me.

Re: Farer's Lander Chronograph

I am a big fan of that sea green/blue and absolutely love this Chrono. I have the brown chocolate version so can’t have both but I’ll get the new Lander version and sell the brown Eldridge.

Re: If you had to pare down your collection to 2 watches.......

I’m thinking my Explorer II and either my Ares or Pelagos. The idea of the 10-year battery makes me lean towards the Ares. I thought about my Fenix, but need for charging capability in my travels kind of rules it out as my “mission” watch.

Re: ARES Watch Company

Any chance we will be able to order a separate black bezel later on? I used to have one of the original Korsbek Oceaneers, and loved it with the PVD bezel. Something about that BB finish with the all black rang the bell.

Re: New Breitling Navitimer 1 Airline Editions

Any idea on the price of these? Good AD to deal with?

Re: 1680 Red Sub

I had one-- a 1973 bought used in 1982 for $300 and sold in 2007 for $9,600. I loved it, but what actually convinced me to sell was fact that RSC refused to work on it anymore because the red dial could not be replaced if anything happened. I can't keep a safe queen, but worried too much if somethin...
