Turtle # 6 incoming.
What are your criteria for counting turtles? SRPXXX models only, or inclusive of originals? I've got a herd, and this one is tempting me too. :oops:

He was posting here a while back. He describes his models as "in spirit of" classic designs. Decide for yourse...

Re: New Oris Aquis Date Brown and Green

i like Oris overall but ALWAYS hate the lugs they so often use......it is whats kept me from owning one all these years. I was in the same camp. Then I tried one. It's a really great piece of kit, as long as you view it as a bracelet-only watch. How about rubber-strap only, too? I don't know about ...

Re: Jason Heaton Takes the new JLC Polaris Memovox Diving

Shouldn’t you be able to dive with a 200M rated watch? Yes. I can’t see how it could be rated 200m and then fail so easily. If their reason for saying it’s “not recommended for diving” because the crown could be pulled out in error, then they shouldn’t have rated it 200m or they should have given i...

Close, but the proportions look off. The dial and hands look like they would work better on a smaller watch.

Re: Def the worst of the SAS rip offs

When my son was fairly little he got a trophy in TKD. He asked it it was real gold. We told him it was "trophy gold." I think it is very similar to this type of gold.

Still surprised how much I enjoy this watch, and even more so since I got the bracelet.

Thanks!! Yep it’s back. Really pretty watch.

Does anyone know what the 50/50 part means?
