You've probably got the eyesight I had when I was a young pup, (and wish to hell I still had!).

Getting old is a bitch! The mind is the second thing to go. I can't remember the first....

I wonder if my I Phone has an application that can duplicate what your Sinn can do so that I can understand WTF that watch is for.

This guy has some nice time pieces for sale.

The shipping is a little bit expensive though but since his prices are good, the final price looks ok.

I pretty like those 2:






Anyone nows the diameter of those?

Thanks mate!

It's very good news for me because I have a small wrist built for Seiko 5s and they are 34-36mm so this watch would be perfect for me.

Interesting. I bought a U1 a couple of months ago and I've only worn it twice. I think the hands are what I don't like about it, along with the black bezel. The hands just look a bit cheap to me. I've got the itch for a new Submariner Ceramic with the green dial, but I need to offload a couple first, including the U1.

Submariner is quite a classic, and I enjoy wearing mine regularly, but since I got the U2, it is been on my wrist the most. I also bought a Doxa 1000T around the same time, and I have to force myself to change my watch to wear it. I shouldn't have bought them so close together. I still love the orange face though!

Hi folks

Am getting ready to pull the trigger on a JY0005-50E Skyhawk and was wondering if anyone had pics of a Skyhawk (SS, Ti or black) on a mesh bracelet?

(actually.....any similar watches on mesh bracelets? Pics too please!)

I really like the look of this one from StrapCode.com but it's sold out:

Flexi 22mm Matt Black "SHARK" Mesh Divers Watch Band Bracelet

probably just as well it's sold out as the Skyhawk will likely drain the coffers......

Looking forward to your pics (hopefully!)

Cheers n regards from Shakey Christchurch

Shane
