WRUW 19 February 2020

Barakuda today --love how the dial can look really dark in one pic and then almost matte gray in another! It came on the sailcloth, which has never been my favorite, but I had high hopes for the OEM tropic. However, the OEM tropic did not do it for me (too stretchy and pliable). All fine because th...

Re: Breitling 765 AVI 1953 Reissue

It looks great save for the shit fake aged lume. I can’t stand this any more. What’s the problem with white markers? I totally agree!! According to Watchfred, this is the exact color of lume found on the original period piece. Seems like they have old color photos and interviewed period watchmakers...

Switch up! New to me Blancpain Barakuda! It came with the sailcloth mounted, but I also have the tropic strap and several at home I intend to try on it! https://i701.photobucket.com/albums/ww20/RALAustin/2019/IMG_3425_zpswmn7pb6h.jpg https://i701.photobucket.com/albums/ww20/RALAustin/2019/IMG_3423_...

Re: No CG love

I also gravitate towards no crown guards. My GMT may be the only one that I have w guards.

This Longines has a beautiful onion crown...with no guards.

Re: WRUW ### 02 06 20 ###

New one today. Helson Skindiver. Had been looking for one last year but were not in stock. When I saw they were back in, I couldn’t resist. Honestly, I love it! The value is off the charts. Feels solid and looks great...all for under $700. Can’t beat that. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200206/...

Re: Don't buy your Rolex from Australia

This is what happens when you have demand outstripping supply by such a large degree. All luxury goods have this problem to some extent but man...scary out there boys.

Re: What Is Your First Purchase Of 2020?

I need to trim down the watch box. Really want to have a go at the new Ed White. Problem is, I’ve become too good at picking the right pieces and don’t want to let anything go. Decisions.

Re: WRUW Tues 1/21/20

One of the last to come in 2019. Baltic Aquascaphe. Great little watch at an affordable price. Keeping time like a champ after regulating. Makes you wonder why we spend thousands on watches. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200121/a6bcbc91b9e6fb4511fea8492f250dff.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapa...

I like what they did w the movement. It’s an auto movement but the rotor is hidden giving you a full view. Very cool.

Re: New “Ed White” Speedmaster

I love it but like others too pricey for me. Here's my question- you have 13K and you walk into a respective AD, there's a stainless Daytona and this Speedy which one you buying? I've personally owned 4 different Speedies and at this point all have been sold- Mike Problem is, your scenario doesn’t ...
