  1. BB58 is 11mm. The older ETAs were also thinner. Agreed though that the GMT is far too slab sided and thick.
  2. Lots of Eterna in my local TK Maxx, not dirt cheap and missing some papers / wetsuit extension. They had a 1973 Ltd Ed Super Kontiki for £599. They had that 710 Alpina too which sat around at £699 for months.
  3. There is absolutely nothing classy about a modern Rolex diver, there used to be but not anymore. They have even started to ruin their understated models like the Explorer.
  4. Birthday watch on the right day for it!! LUC 1860 by dougal74, on Flickr
  5. I’m on the list at an AD in Victoria, they think December time (same for the BB GMT).
  6. I don’t see the difference between sending a watch in for service in Switzerland (e.g. Bienne) vs. sending it to Japan? I’d take the MM300 over that special edition SLA though.
  7. -6 spd isn’t bad especially if new. Experiment with different positions during the night (crown down etc) and see if this has an impact.
  8. The most legible compass on a watch I know of on my ProTrek (plus Barometer and Altimeter). ProTrek Compass by dougal74, on Flickr ...and I was born in Burnley General!
  9. Oh no, I’m cursed!!! I don’t think the automatic wind is working. It has stopped a couple of times now...bugger!
  10. Better than the Rolex effort!!
  11. Is it bad that I wore it to the dump to get rid of a load of cardboard!?
  12. Yes it is, you get a display back fitted and a spare solid gold back too. L.U.C. by dougal74, on Flickr L.U.C. by dougal74, on Flickr L.U.C. by dougal74, on Flickr
  13. New on today L.U.C. by dougal74, on Flickr
  14. As some of you remember from last week, I had a false start to my Birthday watch. The replacement came today, and what I love most is that I think it has been worn almost daily for most of its 18 years! Had I bought a pristine one, I might have kept it in the watch box for fear of dings and scratches. Now I can wear it and enjoy!

  15. It is possible/likely that Seiko will direct you back to the AD. Were the papers stamped as “new” in 2018 or earlier? It looks like it has suffered more than just storage issues before you got it.
