Congrats Roger on the new purchase
Thank you wurger.
I really like the way that Zenith executes the chronograph.
Very nice, Congrats Roger.
I made a little test to find out which watch suits your style. The test looks like this:
So, I'm a IWC guy . You can try the test here. Tell me what you think!
"More elegant Swiss watches with minimal clutter" - LOL.
I think this could save me a lot of unnecessary thinking! Please tell me what other products I should definitely buy based on clicking simple-minded binary options.
On the other hand, this type of thing could help explain what's up with IWC recently.
Don't go Kobe, bro!
You are definitely staying at the right place!
Actually a former AD for AP, Patek, JLC and a few others used to have a similar RO wall clock and IIRC he also had a PP Ellipse wall clock.
This made me chuckle.
i also was suggested IWC based on my rather thoughtless answers. was that done by IWC or by someone else? either way did not like. made me want to barf.
a quick, post cape cod cloth, pic.
Very clean stitchy! Is the Cape Cod cloth abrasive in some nature that it helps polish watches? Is there some sort of pixie dust you add that helps
It does seem to have some abrasives in it, and they did not recommended for use on any type of brushed metal. And yes, it does look like pixie dust. It also has silver polish or something like that absorbed into it. It's very moist and oily, and it makes your hands black.
After you use it, you need to buff it with a regular polishing cloth, and then soak it or rub it in some jewelry cleaning solution, and then buff it again with the regular polishing cloth to get all the polish from the Cape Cod cloth out. Totally worth it though.
It should be noted though, that it really is only meant for small surface type scratches. It will not remove any types of dings, dents, or deeper scratches.
Basically, it does not have a factory finish obviously, but it does a very nice job restoring it to a much prettier state than before. I can see it as something I would use often to touch up the watch and keep it looking nice and fresh.
Mine came out as IWC too. How many other possible outcomes are there? I went back and entered completely different (and in my opinion, shallow moronic douchebag stereotype) choices, and it gave me...Omega. Which seemed a bit odd.
Now, it's true that I have been staring at an IWC a lot lately (I stare at a lot of things, it just happens to have featured recently), so it seemed a little uncanny. But the great irony to me is that my only "proper" watch is...an Omega...
"I have opinions on typography". That had to be inspired by you; I just wonder where it leads in the test!
That looks wonderful, Stitchy!*
(*Now try your shoes.)
^ those questions seem goofy. I love to ride my bike and have since I was a child, but I don't think hipster, fixies are "stylish". People go "Oh" when you tell them the brand? Like "Oh, WOW! That's a something something" or "Oh. What the hell is that.. never heard of it."
anyway, I came out IWC as well! haha
