    This one ?

    Looks a bit " standard generic ". (Sorry).

    The vintage models will always have a much greater appeal for me, but the problem with them has been highlighted in this post. Buyer beware.

    Nope, its this one but on a bracelet. Dunno what the issue is with the link I was using

    I've seen this Titoni that ends in an hour that I quite like the look of, bit I have some suspicions.

    It is listed as Vintage, but appears more modern, not least due to the case size of 42mm.

    Anyone able to offer some advice as to whether it might be original, or whether it is likely an old dial and movement chucked into a newer case.

    I think it must be repainted given the condition it appears to be in, again advice from thos with some proper knowledge would be appreciated.

    Someone paid £102 for it! The mind boggles. Original Airmasters are 34mm, so the whole deal is wrong.

    Seascoper would be good if you can find one

    EDIT: Can't get this to go straight to the picture - must be having an off day!

    A merger of the two would be perfect - I prefer the dial & hands on the DJ but don't like the cyclops - Also prefer the case & bracelet of the Explorer, but not the hands? - Good job I don't have that sort of cash to splash, but as @scottswatches says, neither is a bad choice ...

    You should be looking at an Air King then, older one, or an Air King date, but it'll still have the cyclops

     

    For me its the DJ - don't like the Mercedes hands on a watch, the cyclops I think I'd live with from a functionality POV

    I had this, this AM too as waiting for the same watch. 

    New production delays happen. However what also happens is a little contrition from the brand which Yema have not provided in any way and its wound me up (enjoy the pun) a little. This purchase was a gift. 

    In an industry of limitless choice, service matters so I think that's me and Yema done. 

    I'm not sure you get any apology from any big brands? Or for that matter in most industries, house buying, car buying, even buying vinyl from an independent record shop (support local they say, stick it to the big boys) but all you end up with is a wall of non communication and very poor excuses.

    Its a shame you are done with the brand on the back of this, but I do understand if it is a gift and cannot be fulfilled in time. I'm pretty sure that shipping dates for new watches and the like are estimates and not fixed, but an update would most likely have been welcome

  5. I'm in. Have seen the input increase by about 70% since the beginning of the year. It would likely be very much more if I actively managed it, but I'm happy with the progress.

    I'm spread on some stable coin and some of the more volatile ones; profits get banked back into more stable coins

    These things kinda take that 'seeking' out of the equation of personalised 'like' and introduce second hand 'knowing' to tell people what to do.

    Personally, I would rather find my own grails thank you. If they come randomised and with no particular horological skill then so be it. I will probably be happier. 

    I didn't get to the bottom of this "another" list I must confess.. but I bet it didn't have one of these..

    Believe it or not.. THIS.. is on my personal grail list. 

    If you can't figure out why, then you might just be reading too many of these 'top 100' watch articles. 

    Because it will always be adventure time?

    Yep - they listened.

    Different enough? From what? There's not much around that's like the Elite.

    Different enough :hmmm9uh:...most definitely Yes!
     

    Build quality, range of models, ‘pricing’, customer service, IMHO have yet to find better ‘all round’ package.

    Believe me, as someone who has seen, handled, & owned a couple from other manufacturers, when I say they are excellent value for money (if their range appeals to you?).

     

    PS...

    Currently own 12 of their models, so perhaps a tad biased ?
     

    :thumbsup:

    Its not slating the watch, just posing the question of whether if it turned up from a micro, as many watches do on the forum, whether it would be picked up.

    As I said, its nice looking and stands out far enough aesthetically from the competition even if the brand and its positives are put to one side. I'm interested to see the crown in action

    Creation watches: SKX009 on the rubber, £211.

    5KX/SRPD on a bracelet £165-200ish depending on your flavour. Plus just about enough change for a Strapcode on sale if that is your thing. Personally I find the bracelet fine.
