    Did you tether you camera to your computer to try to control focus?

    To make it look sharper try to set it at F8 and see the difference?

    I believe this is the gold plated version of the Seamaster Compressor ref.166.042.

    Nice shots! I like where you are heading with your collection. My first "real" watch was a polar Explorer II...wish I still had that watch...SMH!

    Sorry to hijack, and I hope I'm not being rude. Adjusting white balance on your first image (setting neutral grey to the background, in this case) will probably bring things into a more accurate temperature overall. That's the only change I made. You didn't ask... so again, hope this wasn't rude to do. Cheers!

    Hi! Looks great to me :thumbsup:
    I did not have any day light bulbs around at that time, so the image got all yellow from 'normal bulb light'
    Thank you for the tip :)
