Re: New Benrus Type I

Saw this on another forum. I’m intrigued. Anyone heard any other details? Did some group just buy the Benrus name/designs? https://www.benrus.com/pages/type-i Wasn't there a Japanese company selling watches under the Benrus name a few years ago? Type 1 homage with quartz movement, if memory serves....

That's looking great, Art. The accelerated patina job that you did on your Helson Shark Diver was maybe my favorite LOS work I've ever seen.

Re: Eterna Super Kontiki 1973 Heritage on blowout at Ashford

In my experience it wore huge. Not so much the case size but the dial opening made it wear every bit a 44mm. It definitely looked bigger on the wrist and wore larger than the MM300. Quality piece but not for me. I've owned a couple vintage Eterna-Matic KonTiki's and they were perfect.

No
I thought that it wore rather large on my 7.25".

Re: Certina DS Super PH500M Orange Dial

I received a timely response from Jura and than received this email from a CS rep for CW Sellors who apparently Jura deals with. The email ended up in my junk folder.

Glad to hear that repairs are still available. Take some time and recharge the batteries. If you decide to jump back in you've got many loyal customers. Thanks for the quality products and service over the past years. Best to you, T.

Very cool T. Nice to see the Bug coming along. Can't recall if this will soon become your daughter's ride. If so, she's a lucky girl.
