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? My father, following his combat tour in Vietnam on Skyraiders, was first a navigator then pilot on the PanAm 707’s, and flew with the company from 1967 until they ultimately folded. I would love to get him one of these. Sent from my iPad using Ta...

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...

No, they write books and go on CNN/FOX. As someone with 30+ years in the intelligence community (retired) I have a good idea what Graham did. You haven't a clue.

Congrats, Matt. Look forward to getting one on the wrist.

Off topic, but did you log any Mosul time 2003-2007? Wondering if our paths crossed.

Re: Crystal Times?

I can only speak to my admittedly limited experience. I modded my STO with chapter ring, coin edge bezel, and top hat crystal and they all fit fine. Of course, I had Duarte install everything, so I’m unaware of any issues.
