  1. I've been thinking along the same lines. One of these two. I prefer the blue but dont like leather straps and on a bracelet it would just look like a couple of my other watches, so maybe white ??? The wearing down process on my missus will have to start soon
  2. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/184254914747 This is the latest fake Quartz Hydroconquest on Ebay. I don't think I've ever logged on Ebay and not seen a fake hydro. The usual tells are still there, misaligned bezel, thick font, the gap between hour markers and lume pips are too narrow. The lume pips themselves usually look like fried eggs.The seller doesnt mention it's a 39mm but the caseback is from a 39mm Automatic, if it's real. The sellers don't show the movement anymore as there is another tell where the button to release the crown stem is.
  3. It's never been a problem before
  4. Hahaha I'm a few years further on.
  5. That's why the Chinese can't compete in the Aerospace Industry I was told, because of the cost of the materials like super duplex. Those CMM's can't half shift when they're in rapid. Those air bore gauges were in the 80's
  6. The last 2 places I worked at employed people in quality who couldn't use a mike I like Renishaw probes but that one in your pic looks equal to the value of you Hulk and more intricate than the ones I used. I saw one lad load this job into a Solon 3 and put the (wrong) programme into the m/c. The programme should have been one where the probe tapped the top of a flat jobbut it had a big square cube on instead..........bangit wiped the probe out completely and that was £3k 20years ago. Hahaha oops We had the setting rings with the gauges for when we changed sizes.
  7. This is what ours looked like. i think we had 8 interchangeable heads from 70-200 but as I said, they never read the same as the inside mikes by .002" or so but a lot less fuss to use. Pull the trigger, put the Bowers in the bore and release.
  8. Still blue for me, it's a real stunner.In black it's just nice.
  9. Annual calibration? We got a Bowers gauge where I used to work and it never gave the same reading as the internal mike from about 70 mm up to 200 mm
  10. Too right the only watch I've had a polishing cloth with was a Rado, which is disappointing
  11. One of the reasons I'm super chuffed for Captain Tom is the fact he's blowing celebrities out of the water who think we can't do without them. Having said that Simon Cowell, who I'm not a fan of, has donated £10k so fair play
