I love that strap! Contacted Molequin this week to check if they had it (Riviera) on 17mm... helaas, niet op dit moment, alleen vanaf 18mm :-(
I might visit them in a couple of weeks with some of my watches to check their straps, very interested colours they have.
Today was my first attempt and failure of a pocket picture! The Deauville is out
Chief. It is 30 ish mm. Was for the Canadian market. The case back is signed ROLEX. Here is a pic of the movement. I am sure someone with better knowledge of movements can pipe in with more details. @ChiefMark
Good afternoon.....going without my 1603 from 1973....
Leavin' on a Jet Plane today, for the first time in over a year. Wouldn't think about going without my multi-timezone companion
Pleased to pick up the Tudor chrono earlier this week
Even more pleased to have some sun.
In a short summary, I think Tudor did a great job with this new chrono. Firstly the performance of the movement has surprised me. Early days but it’s running flat +0 and the chronograph activation is positively mechanical which is a nice departure from the smooth refinement of other brands. I can’t say wether this is a downside and in reference to lack of refinement in the movement, but I like the tactile feel.
The contentious issue about the thickness, to me, is a non issue. With the redesigned caseback and lug shape this sits dead flat on the wrist, hiding any on paper thickness it has. It doesn’t feel or look like a 14.4mm watch.
As you can see I chose black, I compared both but black was my pick, even before I saw it in person. It has a vintage feel in look not size but just enough but not too many vintage features to keep it on the side of interesting vs an embarrassing copy.
As I chronograph collector, I’m pleased to add this one.
Only Steinhart line with own character, no copycat
Well this is fun! Striking 10th
Finally more useful on the correct side...
Bravo SpaceX, docking was awesome...!)
A recent estate find fully serviced. Love the two tone dial on this one.
Very cool. I’m familiar with the history of the Skyrocket. Rolex shipped movements to Canada for assembly in Canadian cases. Some of those movements were signed, others were not. I was just curious. It’s a great watch either way.
Thanks for sharing!
Trying a new Milanese strap on the Junghans.
Wearing my daughter's high school colors to her first softball game of the yr and first in 2 years, thanks to Covid. She is pitching today.....yup, proud dad mancessoring here.
I've been fancying one of these for a long time... Thanks @eugeneandresson for giving me the opportunity
After wearing my favourite 57 year old Accutron for the last week, back to my favourite 50 year old Rolex Air-King Date. I enjoyed the Accutron, but the average size expansion bracelet on my 8 1/2” wrist is not comfortable. The Air-King I’ve owned for all of its 50 years. It came with a steel bezel. For over 30 years, I have had a NOS genuine 14-karat yellow gold Rolex bezel in my stash. So, I celebrated the Golden Anniversary of ownership by modding the Air-King with the gold bezel. I rather like it. Tell me, what is it like to actually own a NEW watch?
