Re: Tudor Ranger 7966

So, what are that two straight cylindrical bars? I believe its a reference to the straight endlinks that appear on the bracelet of the Heritage model (as opposed to the fitted endlinks that appear on the original). It isn't a design choice that I particularly like. I always found it interesting tha...

Re: Anybody talked to Terry?

Hey Brad!

I don't have contact info, but Terry is here pretty regularly, so if you leave him a PM here my guess is he'll get back to you.

Or you could go with Ben's offer.

Re: Supposed new Rolex line up...

For me, if you’ve wanted a 36mm explorer-style watch without the old stamped bracelet, you’ve always had the option of the 116000, which has been underpriced forever. My wife has had this one for 7+ years, and it’s still within the same realm in terms of pricing. (Pictures with the 39mm Explorer) h...

Re: New Hamilton Khaki Aviation X-Wind Automatic Chronographs

Topper has one of the original models on sale for a pretty good price if anyone's interested. Depending on the color scheme, I always thought it was a pretty cool looking watch. Just too big for me I suspect.

Re: Supposed new Rolex line up...

Yeah most of them wouldn’t put me on a waitlist, the rest outright lied to me and said they wouldn’t get any stock until September (in Causeway Bay HK... sure). No big deal, I’ll try again in a couple months. I mean I really would love a 36mm Explorer but it’s not like I’m going to lose sleep or pa...

Re: Supposed new Rolex line up...

I checked into 5 Rolex ADs in downtown HK + a couple contacts. Zero availability of the 36mm Explorer in SS but I managed to see a TT. It sucks as much as in the pictures. I guess I just saved 6 grand. If this the one you really want, I'd say get yourself on a few waitlists. Even with watch sizes t...

Re: Tudor Releases New Watches April 7th

Doing more reading, there are some additional changes to the Exp II. The hands on the black dial are now fully SS instead of partially blacked out. The hands and markers on the white dial are matte black instead of gloss. Case shape does look a bit slimmer and the dial looks a little smaller, but t...

Yup. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210407/e90406cd56ff1faacada6ae2c56fb16d.jpg So which is it, 1,350,000 dollars or Euros? Because, you know, that could make all the difference. Ha!

Overall, I think what I’m seeing so far is better than average.

Re: W&W '21: New IWC Pilot Chronos 41mm

Green and red is really a shit combination. That watch is rather ugly. Agree. Green is the new black now. Everyone jumped on that color in the last 12 months. I don't think it goes with every watch IMHO Even Patek has released their new Nautilus in olive green for reasons that escape me from an aes...

Re: Tudor Releases New Watches April 7th

The new datejust dials leave me flat. Compared to Grand Seiko dial textures they're a joke. They seem to be geared more toward women than men. Rolex categorizes its 36mm watches as unisex. But, at least from the pics, I still don't think they look very good when compared to GS or even some of the O...

Re: Tudor Releases New Watches April 7th

Not really feeling Tudor or Rolex this year for the most part. Use of silver for a case is different - I assume they have to treat it in some way to keep it from tarnishing. But the design isn't particularly inspiring to me. The all gold BB with the green dial and bezel is kind of cool, but not real...

Re: Supposed new Rolex line up...

They’re also releasing a TT model, which is surprising given that it’s the explorer. But it doesn’t look half bad from the pics I’ve seen. I’m not sure what to make of the “new” Exp II. Nice to have a new movement, but other than that it’s the same watch (Hodinkee speculates that the lugs may be sli...
