So, I registered the MUT Moon on JLC's "LeClub", and they sent me this lovely gift! No sorry, the watch inside was not included. (Well, the way it really happened was this: Some of my fellow Norwegian collectors have received lovely gifts when registering their watches. I had registered my Master Chrono a long time ago, but received no lovely gift. I had also recently registered my MUT Moon, a year after aquiring, but received no lovely gift. So I sent JLC a polite...
@Winot, the Explorer II is the travel watch. I like my 16750, it's sleek, understated and bullet proof. Cool on Nato or bracelet, or get one of the several excellent aftermarket rubber straps. My Explorer II at 78 deg north, Svalbard. The polar in its home environment. Thin profile, goes with anything. Summer-look on a blue perlon.
Yesterday was the last sunny day around here for a while, it seems. September started out rainy and very autumny. But yesterday was lovely And on a lovely day, you wear your Patek when you take out the trash in the evening, while enjoying the pink skies.
Yeah, tell me about it! My favourite watch pusher has the Grosse Lange 1 in platinum, and surprise: it fit me quite well That thing is just lovely, and has a nice heft to it. The backside is perhaps the most lovely thing about it.Not exactly on my immediate list, but Lange has some droolworthy models. I quite like the look of the 1815 AB/AUF, but I have yet to try it on.Anyway, yesterday was a casual 60th birthday party for my mother-in-law. A lovely seaside restaurant,...
@Novelty77, that is awesome. Congrats! That movement. Puts my solid caseback PP to shame
Yeah, so this happened just before my summer vacation My friend's 5196g is now my 5196g.Just a watch, pure and distilled. It wears surprisingly large for 37mm, due to long lugs and a thin bezel. Monochromatic and almost boring. Let the others shout, this one whispers. I like it a lot.Perfect for formal occations, but I'm just as happy to wear it casually.
Looks good! If you like it enough there is always the Omega mesh as well, very well executed and available from Ofrei and such (and ADs too, I'm sure).No need to apologize The watch hobby often gets too purist and serious, mix it up! A red, orange or camo NATO is essential summer cool! You are a peacock and you want to fly! And guys, pssst: I have something incoming

Had lunch with a watch collector friend yesterday, tried on his 5196g. Unfortunately it fit me very well And he might be looking to sell. I have heard a few arguments against this Calatrava (small movement in larger case etc), but on my hand it was pure magic. It does not fill an empty spot in my collection, nor satisfy any other rationalization. It was just very, very nice
Indeed. This is a Seamaster 300, but the "Watchco" variant. That is: NOS Omega movement in replacement case and the rest NOS and/or modern replacement parts. Done first by Watchco of Australia, after losing Omega account but stuck with a pile of parts, as far as I know the story. This is from Watchco, but you can find them on eBay and fourms from a lot of sources.Not for the purist, but pretty cool to have a vintage model in a brand new configuration. Lume lights up the...
