Re: DLC CD1

Joining the ranks, just ordered a gray dial. Can't wait, been looking forward to this since its inception.

Re: DLC CD1

Hey Todd, do you have an ETA on posting/selling the new cases? I've been trying to score a CD-1 as they are sold out on the website. But am willing to wait for a new one if they are on the near horizon.

Re: kidz these days....

My daughter (16) pays attention to my watches, tells me which ones to keep and which to lose--all based on which ones she wants to inherit. Her fave was my SD, but she has come to accept the SubC; for a time she loved my UTS 1000 Bauhaus. She wears a ladies dive watch (because she actually does dive...

Re: RESCO Patriot pics for Tallguy!!

I always liked the look. Had one, but it had the original Slava movement and I had so many problems with it I finally dumped it. Had to send it in 3 times, and they finally swapped a new movement into it. But it came back the last time with the bezel misaligned and with scratches on it, so it just s...

Re: AD discounts?

Last time I talked to Rob at Topper he told me that there is a new pricing policy with Omega: they will not allow any of their
AD's to discount any more than 15%. I have bought a few watches from him and he said he had to stick with that.

Re: My "one watch"

I don't know, I kind of feel the same way. I'm down to the Sub-C and one Sinn--and since I haven't worn the Sinn in about 3 weeks, much as I like it, I'm wondering if I need it. The Sub-C seems to fill all the boxes for me, can't think of a reason not to wear it. I even wore it diving in Thailand tw...

Re: Aegir CD-1 and SD-1 size poll

42mm. I have been looking forward to the CD-1 for a while (ever since it was first a concept). My wrist is a flat 7" and I've just decided the absolute maximum size for me is a 42 (only two watches I've kept, following my forays into 44-45 are my Sub-C and Sinn 103). If the CD-1 will only be offered...

That might be the most beautiful Autavia I've ever seen. Never seen that model before--I want one! I read somewhere that there are only 3-4 of this model with the decompression bezel in existence.

Re: RIP Dave Brubeck

Dave Brubeck Live at Carnegie Hall was the first jazz album I ever bought and I flat wore it out. Can't count the number of times I've been to see him in concert, and age never seemed to slow him down or diminish his skills. He'll be missed.
