No worries Kid. I knew you weren't trying to "Get me." Yes, today divers rely on dive computers. My bosses friend dives and does salvage work and he almost never wears a watch anymore. In old photos from the 1980s it looks like he was wearing a Sub or Tudor Sub.Quote:Originally Posted by mimo
If I might go off on a tangent for a moment in proud TWAT tradition: today while walking on the beach, I slipped on a wet concrete ramp and cracked my head. My Orange Monster was unharmed, and might even have laughed. However, in my temporary confusion, I lost my venerable Oakley sunglasses.
These. Gone forever. I hope they found a loving owner.
Glad to hear you are ok, but that looks like a nasty fall! Although it sounds like it didn't knock any sense into you and cure you of this addiction to watches we all have have. I guess today was a bad day for sunglasses. My old, out of production favorite knock around Ray Bans sustained a terrible scuff/chip on the lense (no idea how it happened), and it's right in my field of vision.
My scalp almost hurts after seeing your photo! Hope your feeling better soon!post #32721 of 483126/15/14 at 4:11pmQuote:
This really underscores the absurdity of the depth-rating of so many contemporary dive watches. The manufacturer hype has people believing you need a 300m depth rating just to wear a watch safely in the rain.
I have an Archer dress watch that has no screw down crown, is rated to 50m and pressure tested by the manufacturer to 75m. If that watch remained water resistant while submerged at a pressure of 75m, I'm pretty sure it's not going to implode at the depth presented by an average swimming pool.post #32722 of 483126/15/14 at 4:22pmpost #32723 of 483126/15/14 at 5:15pmQuote:
ah, well, any online seller you might recommend, is there any difference other than the ceramic bezel?
Also in general how do you guys know which version of the 2500 movement it will be on (looking at 2220.80.00 specifically)? I was checking the Omega forum, seems like anything prior to 2500C have more issuespost #32724 of 483126/15/14 at 5:50pmQuote:Originally Posted by mimo
And those are very specifically my beach/exercise sunglasses. I don't actually wear them..with people. So something new like that is what's needed - i have others for civilised interaction. Anyway, they are gone in exchange for ten stitches. And you know what the most painful thing was? The sound of the doctor chewing gum while he shaved, cleaned and sewed up my head. No standards these days.
So come on then, I know you've had a thousand Pannies..is it an old friend returned, or something new and outrageous? Show! Show!
I think id lose my shit if my doctor was that unprofessional. I guess thats the kind of care you get across the pond. This is actually a panerai i've never owned!Quote:
some get it, some dont .... i doQuote:
funny....the guy i bought my AP from is a close friend/watch collector...he was wearing that when i bought from him. I didnt think id like the broze at all..but i gotta say its a VERY stunning watch. He had a custom gator strap made for it with bronze stitching that was just secksay.post #32725 of 483126/15/14 at 5:52pmMimo - glad to see you're okay buddy. That's a helluva spill! I gotta say I've never been a fan of bronze. It's also crazy what some owners do to get that false patina on the bronze (pass the ketchup?)
Exhibit A - saw the new Mark at our Omega boutique in DC - nice but not my cup of tea.
lumalik - congrats. More pics please
DS - Can't wait to see the new grabpost #32726 of 483126/15/14 at 7:38pmMimo, glad to hear you are ok! About glasses, I second @Cleav's proposition: Persol. I love the vintage look and the 649 which I think Cleav pictured are amazing. I just bought the 2931S in 53mm (polarized) and looking forward to get the 649 in 54mm. And for my eyewear I got the 3053. I love them because when I take them off there are no marks on my nose.post #32727 of 483126/15/14 at 7:49pmpost #32728 of 483126/15/14 at 9:54pmQuote:
Its really, really hard to find good vintage no-date dress watches above 36mm. I dont know if Omega made any, a lot of them I see have a date function (not a dress watch, in my eyes). Girard Perregaux and Longines did. I went with Longines.post #32729 of 483126/15/14 at 10:20pmpost #32730 of 483126/15/14 at 10:35pm
I can't vouch for the authenticity, but this seamaster should fit the bill
Hayward said it, you're not likely to find any vintage watch above 35mm.
Shouldn't dress watches be small? I find some hockey puck sized watches look ridiculous.
