Do they seem pretty rugged? All of the watches they make are pretty huge. These are the two smallest ones I think, 47mm which is still huge but better then their 50mm watches.
This one looks pretty cool too. I couldn't find a lot of info on it but it looks like it's going to be part of a new line and it's called the field watch. Looks like it may be a bit smaller too which I would like better. Anybody know when this is coming out?
They're decent. Wore one (the second pic, in black/white w/ brown strap) for 6 months, had some issues with the lugs, mainly that the screws kept breaking (twice, and they're broken again now, just waiting for Tsovet to get back to me). Problem is the lugs are screwed on and not a part of the actual case, so there's tension there and the screws are really small.
Awesome details, the one I had was their smallest with a 47mm face. I like the looks of the new line.. but I don't think I'd buy one again.
Recent watch purchases:
Omega Speedmaster Automatic. Still can't decide if I should've gone with the Pro, but this was a couple hundred bucks cheaper.
Sandoz Submariner homage, for shits and giggles. Really like it actually, it's a bit scratched/beat up, and the lume has yellowed nicely.
I want an IWC portugese or pilot.
