Re: Worn & Wound story on ISO compliance isn't ISO compliant :-)

Technically then even their MM300 or Tuna doesn't have the full 60 minute marks, but is in their Professional line, but the Sumo does. Yup. The Solar Chrono and BFK are compliant too. There doesn't appear to be a pattern. http://www.wellnet.com.au/pics/Seiko%20SSC021P1%20Rubber%2005-05-2012%201.jpg...

Re: Worn & Wound story on ISO compliance isn't ISO compliant :-)

What about on the monster? What do you use as a visual clue for the 43, 47,28, 32, 17 minute marks. Your interpretation seems to only support my conclusion that it is a poorly written spec. One could easily argue that using the dial minute marks is sufficient to determine that minute mark your on t...

Re: Worn & Wound story on ISO compliance isn't ISO compliant :-)

He knows I agree with him re the Seiko Monster bezel. It's not compliant. Actually we don't agree. I'm saying that the Seiko does meet compliance because the vagueness of the spec allows for interpretation that not every minute has to be marked. Fair enough. I don't think the ISO is vague. I think ...

Re: Worn & Wound story on ISO compliance isn't ISO compliant :-)

Juan and I have had this discussion before. I'm not sure why he is acting like we haven't. He knows I agree with him re the Seiko Monster bezel. It's not compliant. Seiko have 2 dive bezels; the 62MAS style (as used on the Turtle/SKX) and the fully indexed one (as seen on the Shogun). Like the Subma...

Re: Worn & Wound story on ISO compliance isn't ISO compliant :-)

The spec is very poorly written. A minute scale does not necessarily imply that every minute must be marked. Reinforced by the fact that it only states that every five minutes be clearly marked. A track that is clearly marked every five minutes is still a minute track. They should hire someone who ...

Worn & Wound story on ISO compliance isn't ISO compliant :-)

Worn & Wound talking about ISO and DIN compliance when making tool watches. All good, until they quote the old dive watch ISO instead of the current one. http://wornandwound.com/making-a-tool-watch-a-basic-guide-to-iso-din-and-related-industry-standards/ I posted a critical comment suggesting they c...

What would people's cheapest 'one watch' be?

For me, probably the Shogun.

I bet the movements are more reliable in these
What problem does Bremont have with movements?
I've not heard anything. My Supermarine has run flawlessly and is the most accurate mechanical in my collection.

Re: Westworld?

I’m convinced that a lot of people who say they love it have no idea what is going on and are ashamed to admit it. No one here, of course.

That's not bad at all...I'm tempted.
Would love to see how this one handles on one of your dives, Carl.
I expect it would handle being in the water fine. I would miss having a timing bezel. Also nice to have a screw-down crown.
