@colmdawson how is your a2 coming along. Always loved the fit on yours:)
The Enfield is on my list as well. The smaller collar makes it. Love it in black with the brass hardware. Need to decide if I go for a slim or a regular.Are there any good pics of the Enfield out there which shows the difference in fit from a slim to a regular?
Different brands have different ideas about what waterresistance rating makes their watches safe to swim with. Also watches from well reputed makers are usually overengineered to quite an extreme degree. My speedys easily passing 10 atm tests is a good example of this. My iwc aquatimer chrono is rated at only 12 atm and that one passed a 30atm test and there are several more examples available. As a tool the dive watch is outdated but it's always nice to know that they are...
Here are a couple of my current favorites. Thank you photobucket for crapping up the quality to an even worse standard than they already were.
I've had teo myself. The first one had a couple of issues with the movement which I suspect had something to do with having been standing for six years in the shop when it was purchased (i found that out when getting the papers from the Omega archive) The other is a Cernan Ltd Edt. From 2003 which has been to hell and back and has always performed flawlessly. I can't ask for anything more from a chronograph. Im considering getting one of the new Omega nato straps launched...
Agreed. Thats why I prefer the original:D
The new 9300 is the speedmaster for the new generation. Great watch,contemporary size and a Great movement.its a little to big for me but you can clearly see white your money goes over a standard speedmaster pro.I fele the same way as you regarding the Goodplanet. I think it was the Color Scheme and the thickness that irked me most.Egen the chance came I bought the 42mm black 216570 gmt and I think this is the most underrated watch Of the current Rolex. it was bought new...
@dino944 Both watches were tested in a pressure chamber, first at -0,8 bar vaccum and then at 10 bar pressure. Both watches passed with flying colors. The great thing is if the machine notices that the watch is faulty,it stops the test to prevent damage.(i have experienced the whole bezel containing the cryystal coming of a Certina though) in my experience the speedy pro is one of the overengineered watches when you compare its construction to its specifications.
Why wouldnt you swim with it?The owners manual saus you can. I have tested the two speedys ive had for waterresistance and both were more stable at a long 10atm test than my planet ocean. The one i have now havent had anything dine with it other than a movement service sinne 2003 and still passed the test last week.
I bet you could pull just claiming to be Mats Zuccarello
