Re: Hamilton's Khaki Field Day Date "Camouflage"

I kinda like the 3 overlaying the edge of the day/date window, instead of chopping off the number.

Re: WRUW 13 July 18

Hadn't heard of Farer until this thread. Those GMTs are cool. I was considering the silver dial Ponting today, with the "jeans" blue rally style strap.

Anyway, my WRUW for today:

Re: ‘Still Can’t Believe It Worked’: The Story of the Thailand Cave Rescue

Another NY Times article said that the rainy season was supposed to start a week after their trip, but was forecast to rain day-of. The boys had been in those caves before this outing too it said, so sounds like they were at least familiar with exploring. Also, they had to retreat further in to avoi...

‘Still Can’t Believe It Worked’: The Story of the Thailand Cave Rescue

I'm sure many of you have seen various news reports about the Thai cave rescue, but this article is the most complete I've come across, with many details about this astonishing rescue effort.

Re: 1st Tudor BB GMT hits Grey market

From my research, Tudor stopped including the nice nato/cloth straps when they switched to in-house movements. That's why they show all three versions on the Tudor website now, with leather and nato references at the same price, and bracelet is a little more (of course).

Re: New ETA Black Bay

From my research, 2016 is when Tudor updated the BB with in-house movement and cosmetic changes. That also means the blue bezel ETA version was only made between 2014-16.

Did they just have it in stock from yesteryear and never sold it? Interesting that it was sold so recently new.
Yes, two of them. This blue one and the red bezel version, both ETA. Then I saw the same two at another dealer recently. Maybe being non-bracelet is why they have been sitting unsold.

Here's an Uncle Seiko Tropic on my SKX173 (22mm). It's a little long for me, and I wish it had two keepers.

A Klassik for the Sinn fans

This is my 103 Klassik on a Di-Modell Montana strap. I purchased from Watch Buys 4 years ago after seeing them back in stock. Limited to 500. Cured me of my Speedmaster Pro obsession, and it's the one I wear the most out of my collection. https://i.imgur.com/TVckgWr.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lfafzW7.j...

Now on the Hirsch, which is a long strap. I'm on the next-to-last hole for my 7 1/2-3/8" wrist.

Not a diver, but a cool limited edtion Seiko

SRPC03 just arrived in the mail. I'm going to swap the strap with a blue Hirsch Modena. I have the same on an older white dial SARB and I like the combo. https://i.imgur.com/YIlr4DR.jpg Hirsch Modena: https://www.hirschstraps.com/products/hirsch-modena-alligator-embossed-leather-watch-strap-blue?var...

New ETA Black Bay

I bought this new ETA Black Bay on leather from an AD a few weeks ago for a nice discount. I only went to see how they felt on wrist, in preparation for the new BB58. I left but couldn't shake it, so I went back the next day to purchase. https://i.imgur.com/knu9koM.jpg They also had the ETA red beze...
