Recommended Posts

In case you haven't seen A and B posts, this is an opportunity to show anything in your watch or Clock collection that starts with the letter C.  This can be the brand, the Complication, the sub brand or anything related.

Certina - possibly the best 1960's watches that are still affordable

As trailed yesterday  --  my Captain.

Not sure why the non-chronos from Zenith get so little love. Some gorgeous watches with a fully in-house automatic movement  --  and, relatively affordable :yes:

CYCLOPS.

 

 

:bash:  --  personal view of course.

But I wouldn't be impressed if I bought a new Mercedes and found that it was fitted with wooden blocks on the pedals because the company had designed it sufficiently badly that the driver could not otherwise reach them.

Of course, TVs used to be sold with a cyclops too  --  but the manufacturers realised that it was an ugly "band-aid" and improved the visibilty of the screens very quickly . . .

Not fussed either way, but prefer under crystal application.

It is  --  but, unfortunately I am unable to correct the original design (even by allowing people loose with lasers), so reluctantly must accept the band-aid.

It is not beyond the wit of watchmakers to design and produce a legible date (there are some!)  --  so failing to do so is just indolence. I find it interesting though that no TV manufacturers tried to make a feature of their cyclops rather than design a better TV :tongue:

I do in fact own two cyclopes, one external (on the DJ, which I abhor) and one internal (in the Huitième) which I simply dislike mildly  --  so, on that point, I find myself in full;y agreement with @Karrusel .
