  1. Hello, I would like to share with you renderings and 3D prints of a dive watch I have designed. The watch has 3 dial variations. To design these watches, I drew my inspiration from the military timepieces worn by combat divers in the 50’s such as the FF. What do you think? Black dials White dials The case Please ignore the case ''mini facets''. The software created them. The case will be smooth (no facets) with a brushed finish. Here I printed different versions of the case. The specs 316L stainless steel
  2. I posted on the WRUW topic earlier but heres the official thread! I was lucky enough to pick up this little gem today. Paid for it during the lockdown at the end of April after spamming my ADs with chaser emails regarding my current position on "the list". I'd got into a bit of routine of touching base every few months. The next day I got an email to ring in urgently.....and 2 months later here we are!! Amazing service. Whilst I didn't get the obligatory glass of bubbles for obvious reasons, they kindly gave me a free gift (Rolex branded leather card wallet) and a letter from the C
  3. What's going on, divers and watch collectors! I just got my PADI dive master license and start to look for a new diving watch, then I saw this Crestical TX-1 on kickstarter recently and found that pretty cool. What I like about it the most is the duel bezel design which gives me a 24-hr GMT bezel for adjusting time zone while traveling and an inner bezel for calculating dive time. Of course you can use a dive computer for this, but I think most people prefer a real watch when it does the same thing and has luminous coating (for both outer and inner bezel). A little bit
  4. First post. Yesterday I was extremely excited to receive my new Seiko Turtle Padi SRPA21K1. Thought it was an absolute bargain as was in sale plus 25% off and another £20 discount code brought it down to approx £270. Sounded to good to be true, well yes it was. The shop had 5 in stock, I thought about it for a few days then checked only 1 left in stock so I pulled the trigger. So yesterday the watch arrived, opened the packaging and there was a white box opened that and revealed a white watch box. Now I thought that's strange as all the reviews and youtube vids I had seen
  5. Hello all, I am looking for an affordable diver watch, around 180 euros. My wrist is quite small, so preferably 38mm. I was looking at the Invicta Pro Diver, but I dont know if people would look at me like the "Guy with the cheap submariner" Any suggestions? Thanks!
  6. Choosed some colorful straps for winter, whats yours ?
  7. Hi, I'm trying to decide on a piece I can wear for everything. This is my first watch and at the age of 31 I am running out of reasons not to buy a watch for myself. I can't find a fiancé which comes with an engagement offering, or parents that will produce a graduation present. So I'm looking at either a more practical Bell & Ross BR02/BR03 Diver or a Blancpain FF (2200-6530-66) or a IWC. Any other suggestions welcome. All I know is I don't want something too recognisable . Would like something a bit different. The Blancpain FF with the black bezel is where I'm currently leaning, thanks i
  8. I bought this online from a trusted seller through the Shopee app (similar to our eBay and Gumtree in the UK) for a really good price the other weel. It was listed as used but the watch and box looked new apart from the discoloured jelly that had gone yellow over a decade. I looked online and bought a new rubber bezel and straps from seller on eBay located in Manchester and within a week they had arrived in Thailand. So I took the opportunity to take a few photos to show just how bad the discolouration is (some call it patina but personally I’m not a fan): Here’s the watch untou
  9. Hi all, I tried looking for a conversation on this comparison but couldn’t find one. I’m looking to make my first foray into divers watched and I’ve narrowed it down to two: the BB58 and the Oris Sixty-Five Bronze (36mm). I can’t actually find the latter for sale for some reason and am well aware of the waiting list for the former. Any advice most appreciated!
  10. Hi I am reaching out for the help of someone who owns an Orient Mako III (Kano) RA-AA0011B19B. The crown has broken off and lost and contacting Orient in respect of sourcing a replacement or even information about the dimensions of the crown have been met with polite refusal. I was hoping that perhaps someone on the forum who owns an intact Kano could give me a rough idea of the diameter and length of the crown so I can source a generic replacement either from a shop that sells parts or Ebay. Any help or advice would be very welcome . Thanks in advance Paul
  11. Nothing unique about this Mako II but I sure do like its sunburst blue dial. Regards Hog
  12. This is a watch i bought from eBay last month, i have to say the watch impressed me. It's a Chinese brand you may not heard it before, neither do i, the brand called San Martin. I found they made a lots of bronze watches which really interested me, and finally i decide to take this one. so far i'm very pleased for this watch. Here i just want to share some of my experiences, i talk about it as i'm a fan of watches, and a collector of good watches. here we just go for this watch. The watch diameter is around 39mm, include crown around 42mm, thickness is around 12mm, wea
  13. Looking to buy a second hand "Divers" watch with a budget of around £1500. I would be eternally grateful for the Forums guidance into the more "random" manufacturers out there as well as the more mainstream. "Vintage" would also be of interest within the prescribed remit.
  14. Hi All, I’m Tom, random member with some random watches. Everything from a GShock....to a soon to arrive Panerai with a splattering of Pulsar, CWC, Tag, Dunhill and Montblanc in the middle. Looking forward to chatting to you all! Very best.
  15. The lume is layered - the hands are the brightest, markers slightly less bright, and the bezel dimmer still, to avoid flare in night vision goggles - either yours or the enemy's lol See you in a bit, just going on to Ebay to get some night vision watchmaker's magnifying goggles Oh, in case you didn't see the watch - it comes on a chunky rubber strap.
  16. Could somebody please tell me the difference between these two longines legend divers? I notice that the dials are signed differently at the automatic - can anyone explain why or which watch is “better” thank-you Okay, so I just read up that they added this 30 bar bit to the dial in 2013 or thereabouts - but after some deliberation and customer dissatisfaction they dropped it back off... what does anyone think about this becoming a rare model some day?
  17. Just picked up a crazy Citizen divers watch that I’ve had my eye on for some time. Couldn’t say no after they gave 50% discount. Suits Thailand’s sabai sabai attitude but don’t think I could get away with it in the UK. Lets see what other crazy divers watches you have. I’ll start:
  18. Hi, looking for some advice please. Im interested in purchasing a christopher ward c65 trident automatic. I love the retro design, colours and leather strap and size. But due to them being online only i am interested in asking about quality and value for money as im very much a fan of being able to feel and see a product before i buy. Ive never spent more than £300 on a watch before so this what i consider to be a more sizeable investment. I am new to the world of watches, ive always had an interest of sorts and have always liked Omega but feel i cannot justify the price (yet) any he

  20. I got this watch a couple months ago. Previously I had the stainless version which is also shown in this video. Both are extremely accurate. http://youtu.be/coJVgXmNGzM
  21. hi Simon....I have managed to find a bezel that seems the right size to fit this TARA allsport watch....(original one missing)...however am struggling to get it to fit securely...have tried giving the spring a few bends in different places but it doesn't seem to want to clip on tight...don't know if this is something you could point me in the right direction for...advice wise....or if not ....something you could remedy quite cheaply for me... perhaps with a different spring? maybe... many thanks
  22. Anyone know where i could find a bezel for this TARA All Sport Divers Watch?....Or if one can't be found ....if it would be possible to fit a generic replacement of some type or perhaps one from another watch with same size face?....Any suggestions?.......watch face is 30mm diameter and case 35mm (minus crown) many thanks
  23. Hi guys, tried signing up up and it turned out I was already a member. Really don’t remember doing that, may have been a lurker, anyway just a quick hello. obviously into watches, started about 18 years ago when my parents bought me a nice Raymond Weil don something or other, really classy Art Deco chrono. I’ve bought and sold on numerous seiko divers and eventually about ten years ago I bit the bullet and got a planet ocean with white numbers and black bezel. I love this watch and I think it’s my favorite dive watch. Bought a new explorer a bit over a year ago which again I’
  24. Evening ladies & gents, Firstly, thanks for having me, literally just made an account. So you all are aware I am a complete novice in regards to watches let alone Rolex's so apologies for any naivety on my part. My current range is a bog-standard Casio G-SHOCK and a Kirby Morgan (diver) watch which I believe runs with Seiko internals but don't take my word on that. So, I was recently fortunate enough to have won a 'Rolex Deepsea 126660 James Cameron Edition' watch through a BOTB (Best of the Best) competition run through the UK. For those of you who don't know it's a guessing gam
  25. N New arrival from the current C.W. sale. Had to go for 38mm as i know 43mm will be large. First impressions are fairly heavy , the patina lume sort of looks odd when you are used to white. Has a nice domed sapphire and nice matte black bezel which very closely matches the dial. Is it a dressy diver though? , it came on a nice bracelet and has 600m wr, but the hour markers might be to petite for some. Lume shot above. Nice matching date wheel and a lovely shaped and machined case with a slight brush finish. Has the dreaded logo, which takes part of the 9 mar
