I accidentally tried to to put a 23mm spring bar in 22mm lugs and it wouldn't fit; I have no idea how this guy got 22's into a 20 lug width. Do you think it was really a 22 spring bar or a 20 with no flanges which would be next to impossible to get out without drilled lugs?
I agree with this.

Re: PSA - Don't use the wrong lug pin size

You could carefully superglue a cocktail stick to the fragment and try to pull it out.. maybe combined with the freezing spray? Or go balls deep. and have the lugs drilled! Or.. go postal, and superglue the watch to your wrist, and see how long it stays put. We could have a DWC sweepstake on how lon...

Re: PSA - Don't use the wrong lug pin size

A long shot, but you could try dabbing a little bit of penetrating oil on it, then putting it in the freezer. This might contract the metal enough to dig it out? Or a freezing spray if you don't fancy putting the entire watch in the freezer.

These shitty watches absolutely have to be some sort of global money laundering scheme. There's no way someone decides to invest money into making this thing for legitimate reasons.

Re: Hodinkee Reviews the U-2/51-Jet

Meh indeed.
When I read the U2 tie-in, I was expecting something special. I think Bremont missed a massive trick here, they could have done something really unique and cool, instead they just hit the parts bin and the DLC dept - not cool.

What does a job like this cost?
I'm not sure, as I think I had a few other watches with him at the time, and I was doing some free design work for him in return.
(remember, he is in the UK though)

James is superb.. he's one of the (if not the best) best relumers in the business, and a top bloke too. He also does crystals/gaskets etc. He has worked on dozens of my watches over the years. One of the stand-out jobs he did for me was this... I had a Tudor Snowflake that had amazing patina on the ...

Re: check out this Heuer Autavia collection...

Speaking of vintage watch prices, check out some of the stuff currently for sale at Analog Shift. I haven't looked there in a while - absolutely insane prices on some of these watches. I can't see ever spending $12K on a Speedmaster, no matter what year it was made. https://shop.analogshift.com/col...
