Re: New Glycine Combat Sub Aquarius

I'd wear it. I already wear the 46mm incursore and the lagunare.

I'm completely dismayed by the opposite side crown. It would be far better if they were both on the same side.

Oh well, when its used on recon for less than $1200, I'll try it.

Re: My Father's watch

Most of you don't know but my dad died almost 13mos ago to this day. Not this exact day but very, very close. He also shared the same birthday with my youngest daughter. Yep,both born on the same month and day...years apart. Yes....all those years apart and they were born the same month and day. He ...

Re: HanHart primus desert pilot.

I love the OD green version like Shorty has. The red pusher sets the whole thing off in the right direction.

Put the tan/khaki version on a different strap and its up a notch. That's too much vanilla happening.

Re: A watch I would love to recreate...

Use white chalk or maybe a 9H pencil for the sketching.

Remove the garish blue dial color & the tudor like excessive fonts and tome, then lose the roughly knurled bezel, and then....wait...WTF that's all been done already

Re: Citizen Dive watches

If your post count is under a 100, then you should have to give DWC a cut of any watch sold via here.

Say 3-4% of the watch sale price. :stir: :rock: :bird:

And maybe another 3-4% if you gotta ask for directions..... :raised:

Yeah, it wears small for a 42mm.
Its also quite thin for dive watch with bezel, at least in the traditional combat. This one may be thicker for the 50atm rating.

Re: Basel: Glycine Combat Sub Aquarius

Bezel is ceramic...probably in about 42mm like the rest of the Combat series. I've got two Glycine watches. One from new and the other as the 3rd owner. The Incursore keeps great time of about 6-8 sec fast/day and has not issues other than no SEL's on the bracelet. The Lagunare was about 10 sec fast...

I've seen smaller knurled knobs on bolt action rifles. That crown is the second most ridiculous thing on that POS.

I checked them already. Every vendor I've checked tops at 8-8.5" but the first strap hole is 2" in and my wrist is about 8.3"

XL Two Piece Zulu

Does anyone make a two piece XL zulu strap?

Looks like I'm going to keep my moto 360 and I'd like to be able to use the HR function occasionally. Right now its on a orange 5 ring zulu so the sensor is blocked.

I've looked through most vendors I know and have not found one yet.
