Re: Thoughts on this ceramic Sub?

It is hard to tell, but has it possibly been given a light polish?

I would be going for an AD purchased/dated late model with as much of the 5 year warranty as possible, especially if it is going to be kept long term.

Re: What's your most accurate mechanical watch for time keeping

Haven't timed it for a while, but my 116610 Sub has always been about +5 or 6 sec per week consistently.

Re: Sub 300T compared to 1200T?

My 2 Doxas: Sub 300 50th Anniversary vs 1200t. doxass.jpg doxass2.jpg I find them both to wear really comfortably, especially the sub300 ( BOR is great IMHO ). Obviously the 1200t wears a bit taller, and has a larger more open dial. The Sub300 wears quite slim, being very true to vintage and has a s...

Re: Resco

I was eyeballing the Resco Hooper a few weeks ago - I think they are pretty cool, especially on that bracelet.
they do an orange dial also.

Re: Horological and existential funk

Comes and goes. Take a mental break and don't worry about it.

The last couple I have enjoyed the most have been cheap and spontaneous purchases with no pressure or overthinking.

Re: Coolers

This thread bump reminded me I wanted to get a new one, so I just bought this:

Coleman Extremes seem to perform and rate highly, even if they don't look like anything special.
I wanted wheels, because it sucks to move a full cooler!

I got my white one direct from Unimatic. They are not available at the moment though.

Re: New Unimatic models are up

At this price point I don't feel too guilty grabbing a couple. No need to agonize over a ~$500 decision :lol:
I will likely sell the white dial and try the Green DLC at some point though.

Maybe available here?

August is not too far away, so might be worth ordering directly with Unimatic and waiting :shrug:
I am pretty sure they will sell out altogether before too long.

I love pretty much all the 3777 variants.
Just to add more potential choices, has anyone seen the IW377713 in person yet?

I really like the blue Petit Prince model, but that silver dial MKXVIII is superb.

Re: New Unimatic models are up

If anyone is too impatient to wait for these to become available again in August, there is a store that has them online now:

https://www.woawstore.com/search?q=unimatic

The link was shared on Unimatics Facebook, and they appear to be a Hong Kong fashion retailer (ship for free also) :thumbsup:

Re: New Unimatic models are up

The dial printing is very clean and crisp, and the lume plots are also very even and cleanly applied.

Lume has not been applied very thick however, and so is not particularly bright or long lasting. Not one for the lume fiends that's for sure

Re: New Unimatic models are up

I had a bracelet from a previous model, but they are not available any more I don't think..
Not sure if they will ever bring the option back but it would be good.

Re: New Unimatic models are up

All models were initially available in May, but the first batches went really fast - second round available in August.
