Re: Physical Oceanography/Applied Physics

I love Google, it’s a crutch for tired memory. I knew there was a simple calc for dynamic pressure of water based on velocity. Very short form example is 69.5 psi is the dynamic pressure of water at 70 mph. So, if you jump out of a car on the freeway into a lake, you’ll see a pressure spike of 69.5...

Re: Physical Oceanography/Applied Physics

Anywaaaaaayy, Static pressure at 300 meters is about 441 psi. Add the 25% for wet testing as a dive watch and we see 551 psi as a static test pressure. Even if you’re a hood ornament on a 688, you could safely go to test depth at a flank bell and the watch would be fine, but I doubt even Paul would...

So, take a perfectly innocent 1861 Speedy, paint it up like a triple date only without the functionality, and call it a win? Nah.

Re: Ever sold a watch because of weight?

Reminds me of back in the day when I sold watches for a living. More often than not, people would judge the quality of a watch by it's weight. I'd always get a kick out watching some neophyte jiggle a watch up and down, then proclaim that because it wasn't heavy enough, that it must be cheap. Colin...

Re: Day and date change in mechanical watches. What is acceptable?

No expert here, but it does seem to depend on the movement. Seiko day-date like the 7S26 seem to take a couple hours from start to finish. My experience with 7750 based movements seems to show they take about an hour for the full day date change over, starting around 2330.

Not one of a kind. Per Govberg, it’s one of 10. Knowing there’s 10 of these does not make me feel better. Looks like something from Thinkgeek.
