Re: Denim

Resurrecting this one.... So don't laugh, but the last pair of selvedge jeans I had were some GAP. I actually liked them, but they are too big now. GAP is super low on stock so looking for recommendations. Nice, dark jeans that I can wear to the office (at least at first) in slim trim is what I wan...

Re: Breitling strap lengths

Thanks guys, and that's the issue: Breitling lists the lengths as 'small' and 'standard' but I can't find any reference to the actual lengths in mm / inches :shrug:

As it happens, the one I was looking at is sold out anyway.

Apparently Breitling does 'small', 'standard' and lon...

Breitling strap lengths

Hi guys

Just went to order a strap from the B website, but the one I want is only available in small at the moment, and there's no indication of the actual length in mm / inches; does anyone know what the actual measurement is or where to find out?

Thanks fellas

Re: America's Cup Edition

I think I like it, but can't get past whatever it is that the chrono-lock does. Thinking about that, kind of distracts me from the whole design.

Re: Car Spotting

I agree, but they’d probably have a difficult time bringing something that primitive to market these days with the incredibly strict rules in Europe. Perhaps. That said, Suzuki has done a great job on the new Jimny, so its possible. https://www.carscoops.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/e553a33c-2019...

Re: BREMONT S500 Black - any experience?

Bit late to the party, but I have one and love it. My only gripe is the rubber strap is so heavy duty I find it a bit uncomfortable. It is a bit thick, but the lug shape works well on the wrist. It also has the same shock protection and ant-mag' as the MB.

Re: Downside To a Micro Watch Company

Yeah, I asked Bremont if I bought a watch with a display back whether they'd swap it for a closed back - said I'd pay, but no deal as it would create a watch that isn't in their line-up.

Now on season 2 of Netflix Frontier. Pretty good, apart from the random, idiotic quotes at the start of each episode.

Re: Right out of the gate.....New Sub $20,000!

Rolex prices are crazy. I gifted my kids my Rolex last Christmas, a Sub and an SD, and told them they could do as they wish with them. They both still sit in the safe, but my son has been talking about selling his. As things are, I'd probably just buy it from him so he has the money and will still e...

Re: date change

Email from Bremont CS today:

"I have to apologise . . . our initial diagnosis . . . was not correct. When our watchmaker opened up the watch he had noted a faulty calendar driving wheel"

I respect their openness over this. Hopefully, they're fast-tracking repair.

I'm not going to make an issue of it, but I have replied and made the point that I'd never changed the date, as well as asking about the time the date changes as they didn't a...

Not sure whether it's just my interpr...

Damn that sucks. With all those returns they have to hemorrhaging money. I know one thing if it was I would totally be trying to restructure things to fix the issue.

Good luck with it. If they don't help you then let me know and I will see what I can do.
