  1. I seem to remember reading that the popularity for green watches is partly driven by the fact that green is seen as a lucky colour in China. This has been on my wishlist for years, although it's pretty big so I'd never buy blind
  2. Top centre for me. I like the simplicity. Personally I'm not keen on the name Time Factor, but other than that, if it was on a rubber strap, I'd be very interested at the right price.
  3. Thanks. Yes, calibre 3313, 28800 per minute. Apparently the earlier versions of these had some issues (chronograph not resetting properly, although mine was faultless). Nonetheless, when it went to Omega for a service, they upgraded to the later improved version just to be sure.
  4. H20! I've been racking my brains trying to remember this brand, thanks! Love the look of these. How do those big lugs feel/sit on the wrist? Its the weekend! No dusty work, so on with the Deville Chrono
  5. New cheapo strap for the Suunto. Not quite sure yet as it's nowhere near as fitted as the proper one, but nice for a change and lots of ventilation for the summer.
  6. Yeah, it was a bit tongue in cheek - most dive watches rarely get wet! Personally, I like a dive watch to have no superfluous features: Easily readable, lots of lume, unidirectional bezel, decent water resistance, time, seconds and maybe power reserve. Not many like that about Come to think of it, saturation divers can spend up to four weeks in a compression tank. Maybe a day function would be handy after all. I take it all back.
  7. Day function! I know what day it is without having to check. This is especially ludicrous on a dive watch; has any diver ever in the history of diving been exploring the sea bed and suddenly thought "I wonder what day it is today"?
  8. I used to really like the concept and look of the Ressence. The spell broke when I realised that the white on black aesthetics and hand symbol remind me of an 80s car dashboard. They should do one with a choke.
  9. A bracelet! I just don't like them. Luckily they are easily swappable, so I could keep the watch and swap to a nice rubber (casual) or leather (formal) strap. There are several watches I love, but would be reluctant to wear in public, such as the Ulysse Nardin Freak Out or the Omega Ploprof.
  10. Looks gorgeous! I would have advised the black, but those close ups of the white are lovely! Re. the lume - does the entire minute hand not light up rather that just the tip?
  11. My everyday 'beater' activity tracker Suunto today. Wears quite well for a 50mm case I think.
  12. The Ploprof is so ludicrously chunkily over-engineered. I love it
  13. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the standard Seamasters have the sword hands, and the Planet Ocean range have the arrow hands.
  14. Taking a day off furlough DIY today, so on goes the DeVille Chronograph
  15. Thanks for the interesting look at a lovely watch. Did you say it was automatic? I'd expect to see a winding rotor somewhere!
