Re: Méraud or Baltic Anyone?

sorry, the hms-001 3 hander. and i should have better explained the comment. not to say there are any issues or problems with the movement, it's just the "feel" and "sound" when winding is a stark reminder of the price point, which, in my opinion, is not quite up to par with the design and fit/finis...

Re: Méraud or Baltic Anyone?

i bought the black/guilt baltic for my wife.
aesthetically, it's great, and fit/finish is good in person (looks like pics).
just go in with eyes wide open re: the movement.

i've no first hand experience with meraud.

Re: Tropic Straps

mine arrived today. immediately put it on my oris65 timeless, and wore it around during lunch at the house, but switched back to the one i started the day with when i left, so these are q&d initial impressions. it's pretty perfect on first blush. extremely pliable, but the compound feels very strong...

Re: FYI - for no-date fans....Monta!

thx for posting this ed
I previously posted my opinion that the gen II with date at 6 almost passes for a no date watch since the date window at 6 is so similar to the 12 marker at first glance.
(that said, I will likely move my gen II (hoppy worn) for a no date version on rubber once they're out.)
