    Sorry about that oversight. That PVD is cool!

    They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.

    The offer stands. Let me know if you are interested. I'll send the watch, and you can pay me what you think it is worth, or send it back if it just isn't right for you.

    Another vote for Steinhart in Germany. I bought my son one, and am very impressed with the quality of the watch at the price. Delivery was about 7 days (US Customs also dinged me for $19 on the delivery). The watch is an absolute joy, though, a beefy 42 mm diver that has been keeping +7 seconds a day. Looks great, feels very solid, and keeps great time - what else can you want at ~$400?

    Default Yes--thanks, they still have the red & black. Oddly however

    as we mentioned (scattered above threads) even the Steinhart Germany site directly is 'sold out' of several of the classic red & blues.

    Makes me wonder if movements are getting harder to acquire and they're just slowly selling off what they have.

    In a totally masochistic fashion--a trait I clearly share with many here or I wouldn't mention it--I'm oddly re-attracted to the green bezel Ocean 1 model.
    Again.
    Which I have owned and sold before.
    AND I more recently owned the Rolex Sub anniversary model it copied.

    It's just a sickness...

    The ONLY good thing I can say about the illogic of it is that at least it's not smoking...

    Not that uncommon to run out of stock on those, from what I've seen, but perhaps a little more so as of late? They're obviously very popular, and I think you're right about movement shortages, as that is one (of many) reasons that Bill has given for the delay in the Kingston.

    Default a bunch of their common/classic 'aviators' are also what looks like

    permanently out-of-stock.

    Maybe Debaufre is a victim of these shortages?

    I noticed Debaufre is no longer on WUS either....

    You might still be able to snag one of the 100 of these at 42mm....not pvd....

    Default thanks. For whatever reasons those don't do much for me

    But I appreciate the thought.
