Looks pretty good. I have one, with a blue dial, I posted it about 6-7 pages back. This example has a rebrushed case which would put me off a bit but on the plus side the original bracelet and endlinks which are very desirable. I’ve never seen a 176.007 with this crystal though which slightly worries me.
Edit: nah, the crystal looks original.
This is a pretty early C4 Peregrine from memory.
My dad wanted to get me a watch and at the time I really wanted something in PVD. I'm not sure if I would have chosen it now but after some time away from it I do really like the look and feel of it, even if it isn't mechanical.
Was thinking about a CWC G10 type watch. I do like all this fancy stuff on here, and I would wear the couple lower cost autos I have... but the Seiko Arctura is the only thing getting wrist time.
Seems that a nice thin/strong/whatever quartz would do me fine. Should probably just wear the Rotary, though it's a bit dressy. It would do fine with a different dial, come to think of it.
G10's are a great watch. I love the history surrounding them (especially issued watches). They wear really well and are super simple. I'd recommend finding one.
So, my Oris not keeping time - I tested it against the iPhone Tesla app and that suggested mild magnetism, so I bought one of those demagnetisers. Used it, the magnetism went away - it’s no longer losing time. Best 12 quid I ever spent!
That certainly seems cheaper than buying a watch which is certified to 15,000 Gauss
Although Omega did just send me these, slightly surprisingly:
Link to which one you bought?
That's well nice.
Needs wrist shot.
Used to wear this daily, with leather straps. Now it just seems too damn shiny.
And here it is , 57 Trilogy Seamaster 300 . Limited edition. It's fucking lovely in the flesh.
It’s gone up to 14.50 in the last couple of days...
Even better on the wrist. And 15000 gauss movement.
here you go, with the sun shining* :) properly sized case for my skinny wrist at 31 mm
not a decent pic as it is cloudy over here. it turns out the watch might not have a Zenith movement*.. will have to look into it - the dial needs a clean anyway as it is full of fingerprints..
Almost feel that bezel should open like a fob.
Liking that more and more.... Would make a strong dress watch.... Off to Google>>>
That SM300 is gorgeous. My only slight issue is the pre-aged lume, but I suppose it does look nicer that way, and saves waiting 20+ years.
It divides opinion but I really like it, I quite missed my Steinhart mil-sub homage which also features the same colour palette of lume and face.
That omega is horrible, too large and shiny, give me matte finish and 36mm any day
It's 39mm, the Seamaster.
I don't wear it much. You're welcome to it back. I warn you though, I have fucked it ever so slightly.
I've got my Railmaster now for my faux-vintage Lume fix. What have you done to the Steinhart?
Still want an explorer 1. Still won’t ever be able to afford one.
