  5. OK...this really is the last one in until at least next Spring, but I had an opportunity to obtain this 3 week old, officially pre-owned but unworn, still stickered example that I really couldn't turn down. Also, I need to spend the next few months on the outgoing pieces that this new purchase demands so no more incoming for me in the near term. That being said, very happy with this new addition. Dive watches are my passion (i might even try diving one day) and they dominate my collection so a quality well sized diver is always going to draw me in: The 39mm case sits very well and

  14. Morning, A Sparewa today, made by Ed. Spahr and running on a 17j AS/ST 1802/03. It’s a kinda plain effort, and some will undoubtedly prefer this other example of the bold Ed.’s oeuvre (image from t’interweb). Regards.

  15. I like the BB 58, especially the black dial on the Tudor NATO. In general I don't like NATO straps, but in this instance the combination works for me. Exactly what I think. I've got a BB steel, and I'd swap it for a 58 in a flash.

  19. A quick update on this one: After wearing the watch a few times since it arrived a fortnight ago, I was finding the strap a bit uncomfortable. There were a couple of issues, the watch is quite top heavy, so the strap needed to be quite tightly fastened to stop any movement. Also, the strap is VERY long, with each side probably at least 1" longer than a standard strap, which put the buckle on the side of my wrist instead of behind it. Also, the material is quite stiff resin, with hardly any "give". I was starting to think the unthinkable, and considering a "catch and release".......... But

  21. Yes, take it into a jeweller that is an authorised dealer, and they will be able to tell you. If it's a fake, be prepared for them to smash it with a hammer though

  25. Thanks indeed. I take the hype aspect with a pinch of salt in that it all seems to come from you tubers and websites whipping each other up then in the next video, whinging about the same hype so they can double down on their content. As for Tudor, they've made a great watch and have left it at that so good luck to them. I did think about a switcheroo for the GMT but after getting that on a nato, they are different enough to sit together in my watch box. If a 58 version of the GMT ever comes out, I'd have a real dilemma!

  26. Even though it's one of the most hyped watches of recent times .... it does live up to the hype. Stunning watch and very nice overall proportions.... Bravo Sir ...

  28. “The only aircraft I really disliked intensely was the Supermarine Walrus. A single-engine amphibious biplane reconnaissance aircraft, the Walrus flapped about all over the sky, and at times seemed almost uncontrollable. On land it was like a penguin, but apparently it was good on the sea and during its history it had saved many lives. It is extraordinary to think that the same designer had created the beautiful Supermarine Spitfire in all its beauty. Yes, Reginald J. Mitchell must have had a bad day when he drew up his plan for the Walrus. I can’t think of one ATA pilot who liked this

  29. Nice addition, and as you say it a better size for us guys with smaller wrists, like that shade of blue for the dial too. I'm ok with Nato straps, but often it's hard to get a good colour match especially if the strap has more than one colour, but that combo is just perfect.

  30. Best thing to do is look for a comparable examples on eBay Chrono24 etc, and see what the completed sale price is. That will give you an Idea what to expect.

  32. Well, my plans to reduce the collection were coming along nicely, with 8 sold in the past week so far. But then the inevitable happened, and I couldn't help myself........... This one has been on my radar for a few years, and when a couple of them came up on ebay I just had to pull the trigger. Ladies and gentlemen, I present for your viewing pleasure... the mighty Bulova Precisionist 98B166: It's a pretty big lump of metal, at around 45mm, and quite heavy as well, but it sit's nicely on my 7.5" wrist. My photo hasn't really captured the finish very well, so you can't see the carbon

  38. I love inexpensive watches but I do dislike rubber and resin straps. Fetish in reverse perhaps If these were by some other brands they would be pretty much the same watch but 3 times the price.

  39. Hi All Just caught up with this thread, very interesting, thanks. Great learning. I also have a couple of Vostoks arriving soon as I build a collection from zero I recently picked this one up too... very different from the usual military style I’ve seen before. I attach an image here. https://imgur.com/rb4Tfbd (Sorry, did try to paste link URL from imgur... on insert image below...but can’t seem to do this on my iPad... my bad Bob

  42. I just saw this and have never seen one before, is it just me who has not seen one before? Other than the Daytona, Rolex doesn't have many "busy" designs so surprised something like this isn't still in the line up. https://onlineonly.christies.com/s/rare-watches-new-york-online/rolex-steel-triple-calendar-jean-claude-killy-model-ref-6236-116/108626?cid=EM_SM_P_DRK_FB-IG_LDP_WTC_19008_Lux1120___&fbclid=IwAR37ClNw5BhTe_vXQdWvTHtC1oQibqnl2PTbzmqLoLkeOQUrLD_8_Z57DpM A reasonable estimate too

  43. I have had a Klaus Kobec Challenger watch for nearly 30 years. Still going strong and keeping good time. The case is showing signs of wear but not bad considering it’s age. I can’t remember paying a load of money for it- probably around £80, so very reasonable for over 30 years of service!

  44. Hi Kenny, The simple answer is that the Komandirskie is an inferior watch to the Amphibia. If we're talking about the older style models (not the newer Amphibia cased versions from Meranom etc) then water resistance is far lower and the cases are chrome or titanium nitride coated brass (which will wear off over time) rather than the stainless steel cases on the Amphibias. The only thing better about them is the price! They're not even that much thinner (assuming we're comparing automatic Amphibias with automatic Komandirskies - obviously a manual winding Komandirskie will be much thinner
