Ok , thanks all for advice.
I've no intention for it to have any value,
just wear it to the ground.
They often come at 40mm or under,
so good for tiny wrists,
a bit cheaper,
that's what attracted me.
Are vintage diving watches once checked , seals changed , really not as reliable as modern ones?
I have a small wirst,
and like water related activities.
I run g one all round 35,
they have been faultless,
but I 'd like to go slick as well.
The override seems a bit more fragile but much cheaper, I would have a »free« spare tyre on the same budget.
The Cinturato seems ideal.
The original company was one of the few to make divers at the time.
Jacques Mayol (the big blue) used to wear them.
We need tales from the land beyond as well please.
These are dark times.
20g difference on 700x35 tyres claimed weight, not much.
My bad the compounds differ, smartnet silica ,
versus speedgrip on gravel.
Any reason why a Pirelli cinturato road comes in 70 tpi,
when the gravel ones comes in 120 tpi ?
Same price , sadly.
Nobody is going to convince me that riding without sleep for days is safe,
even on a velodrome.
Maybe all these guys should study their sleep patern,
like solo round the globe sailors do.
You need a lab.
Should be costly I guess.
And organise their race around it?
Let's hope these guys are alert enough to navigate the downhills,
and the last strech with traffic akin to chaos.
I wish them daylight.
