I'm sorry to hear that.
Congrats, Jeff. That's a beauty!
+/- 42mm is about the sweet spot for me, but as Chris notes, the dial to case size matters, too. My Longines is visually large due to the large dial:
Nice! I didn't know Citizen made those movements available to other manufacturers. I still have my Ti:
Awesome, Pete. Maybe I'll go put something orange on, myself.
Merry Christmas, George. Not a real diver but it is a Seamaster:
... the sun won't rise any earlier tomorrow. Thought you guys might find this interesting:
Nice watch, Jocke! I'm glad you got it. Now... what will your first mod be? ;-)
What are you guys up to this week? We got a tree....
Hi George. Of the dozen or so I rotate through in a year's time, only three are less than 15 yrs old, and most are over 30 (today's is a 1963 Seiko Sea Lion). So 75% vintage by watch and probably...
I haven't been, Chris, but have been interested ever since some friends were looking at a vacation house to rent there some years back. This wasn't it, but in the ballpark:
No kidding. My ears hurt just reading about it. ;-)
Chris: Were you in Malta? How did you like it?
Not bad. We already know that the majority of watch wearers out there probably want something well-made and nice-looking that they can grab and go with, that doesn't run down, keeps good time and...
Nice RGM, Chris.
Erik: What model Citroen is that? When I lived in the Bay Area, some friends had a nice DS21 that we would ride around in....
Longines for me (no change for the past couple of...
That looks as good as ever, Tom. Started with this:
but now wearing this for my birthday (big five-oh). Have a good Sunday, gents.
I solve this by the "one in, one out" rule: If I want a new watch enough to get rid of one I already have then I go forward. Otherwise, maybe I don't really want it that much. But there really...
After some practice I've gotten decent at restoring brushed finishes with a wet scotchbright, very little pressure and straight strokes (or curved, if that's what you need). The couple of times I've...
If I start buying dive watches again, I'd also like to try to find the LE '73 Super Kontiki. My two favorites now (and the ones that get the most wrist time by far) are my 7002 and Longines:
I'm just seeing this. Damn that's bad. So sorry for the family.
Congratulations, Tom! The hands are original, but the insert likely not (the originals had a larger lume dot). That's a winner!
If Jack did the crown gasket then you should be able to swim in...
Damn that sucks. Please send him our wishes for a speedy recovery, Tom.
A couple of times, but I'm slower than most watch guys - it usually takes a year or so to decide if something might be a "keeper."
Had this Citizen in imperial mode, but only wore it on dive trips...
That turned out great, Steve.
