  1. I must admit - I like the look of a lot of their watches - but something has always stopped me buying one (usually the purchase of another make ). However, I think their newish moon phase is quite intriguing (although a tad overpriced) - so who knows, might take the plunge soon
  2. I have my first Yema on order - the Superman Heritage in Bronze - so I hope people like them
  3. Likewise - my first 'Decent' watch was a Tissot - and F1 TS/X2 so I've also had a soft spot for them. I went through a phase of buying some Vintage ones, such as a 1920's pocket watch, a 1950's bomber automatic, a Navigator with a Lemania 1343, another with a Valjoux 7733 - and others. Lately I've moved away from more established brands and have bought quite a few Microbrand offerings - which are also excellent value for money Yeah - I have the black faced version of that too. Had to send it back to them twice to get it regulated - but now is very accurate. I got it because at the moment I have to travel a lot overseas - but to be honest (now I'm getting older) I find even the larger modern version is hard to read the cities - and its also made me realise how I much prefer watches with descent lume
  4. Blimey - no offence but 9 doesn't seem many? But each to his own
  5. I’ve used Duraglit before and it works well Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. The Hamilton is nice - where did you see them? Was it at the exhibition at the design museum? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Well, you usually wear one at a time - so I guess most the time they are only being looked at!?
  8. LOL - its going well thanks Eski - although my bank balance (and wife) may disagree
  9. Must admit I use WatchTracker app - find that really good Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Blimey, really sad (horrified) to read this. Hope you get it back soon Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I own both quartz and mechanical. I prefer mechanical as I think they have more ‘soul’ - but I think it’s good to have variety Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I think they look good - but the date window spoils it. If they wanted a date option it would work better at 6 o’clock Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Congratulations on your growing collection Eski
  14. Sraton do a nice range of watches - although I don't own one personally
  15. Yeah, I'm going for the Black; Date but having the 12-hour bezel fitted and a Diver bezel as a spare.
  16. Timefactors did a high quality Radiomir homage (I.e. no crown guard) the PRS -20 and also a full-lume dial version. You might want to see if you’re can get one of these first if you’re unsure - as you’d save yourself a lot of money. Gruppo Gamma also do similar style dials which are also supposed to be high quality - although personally I don’t own one Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Timefactors did a high quality Radiomir homage (I.e. no crown guard) the PRS -20 and also a full-lume dial version.

  17. Oh well - live and learn. Let us know what you think when they arrive [emoji846] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  18. Lol, well spotted - I must admit I hadn’t noticed that at all. Oh well. I guess it adds to the character of it - a bit like the Rolex Explorer with two 9’s (although unfortunately not as valuable). I’ll have to drop the manufacturer a line and point it out to him [emoji106] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk I would imagine that it should be, but I guess when he was developing it he played about with the fonts and forgot to alter that one [emoji846] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  19. To be honest - no it doesn’t. Apparently the font on the main numbers is the same Stencil Font used on American aircraft - these watches are made by an ex-USAF. I don’t think the Stencil effect would work very well on the smaller numbers. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  20. It’s actually a Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit - there’s a icon of it at 12 rather than a more traditional pilots watch Triangle which I think is rather clever. The feature of the make is to use the Letter designation at the number (a B at the 2 point or a U for the forthcoming U2 homage chrono) or the icon of the plane in the case of the A-10 Warthog. To be honest I think it’s quaint and an interesting characteristic- but I guess it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. [emoji846] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  21. Picked up my Mitchell Timepieces B2 today - what can I say, the quality of the case is superb - and the dial is extremely clear; meaning it’s easy to tell the time by just a very quick glance. Incase you don’t know them, Mitchell Timepieces make a very limited number of watches and they happy to try and accommodate specific customisations. For example, the standard movement was an ETA 2824; but as this watch comes with a lovely display back I decided to go with a hand wound ETA 2801. I originally was going to go with a white seconds hand but Brad convinced me to go for the red - and I have to say I think that was the right call. So far loving everything about this watch [emoji846] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  22. The rollercoaster that is Kickstarter is doing its usual thing and 2 people seem to have backed out of the Newmark 71 campaign meaning that 6 have become available with just over 1 day left.. So if you thought you had missed the boat on this one - now is your chance
  23. Erhhhh...well I recently Pre-~Ordered my 1st Bronze Watch - the Yema Superman Heritage https://eu.yema.com/products/yema-superman-heritage-bronze-ysupz2019a-aus?variant=20031100190793
