Re: Karlskrona Hemlig Mil Series Dive Watch

Yao-za, I feel like I've seen this somewhere before... http://wornandwound.com/library/uploads/2018/06/MK-II-Paradive-Watches-27.jpg Does the world really need another Benrus Type 1 homage? Probably not, but is anyone else currently producing one besides Yao? I certainly won't give that guy my mone...

Re: New Citizen Promaster's Asia only

Lume dial is cool.
I don't like that it is a LE of 1000 though, as it would be great as a lower cost beater rather than a premium priced novelty.
These are $500 if you can find them :tap:

FWIW I have 18 posts on WUS since 2010, and not that many posts here either, even though I actively read daily. I can...

I don't mind it theoretically ( I have never actually tried to wear a 2-tone watch).

Re: Doxa 300

The Tusa is a 10 year old watch now. No doubt there was a few issues like this, but I haven't heard this complaint for a few years. :shrug:

The GMT misprint (and how it was handled) was pretty comical though :lol:

Re: Doxa Size Compared to Seiko Turdle

In those photos it doesn't seem much larger, but from experience the NAFT wears significantly bigger than the 1200t case. As Matt said, a 750t is a good pick for a bigger size, and I have also had a 5000T (45mm) that is on the bigger side. PADI & 1200t SeikoDoxa.jpg It sure doesn't look like they ar...

Re: Doxa 300

I like it, but I like the Pro version better. As Andrew said I think the outline logo would have worked better on the silver dial.
Also not sure it is worth the extra premium.

Re: New Unimatic models are up

They make great watches. But I am not a fan of that style clasp. They are usually way to long. Hard to tell, at first I thought it looks alot like that generic ratchet clasp that you see on a few other micros, kinda like the strapcode one, but it does not seem to have that extra piece on one end, s...

Well, of course I waited too long and now all are sold out. Not all is lost however. Found a LNIB (pouch?) g...

Cool, I had a Constellation hummer a while back.
One of the main issues they have is the plastic calendar wheel that gets brittle and breaks teeth.
