uh... 8:39ish A.M.?
Try and read that thing when you first wake up.
Gotta keep up with the times
Cool app. To bad it's only for iPhone.
I'm making a strap for the iphone
I think what would be REALLY cool would be for a smart phone user to chose a watch face (for me a Rolex Explorer 2) and have that as the screen on your smart phone and it shows the time.
If you could make it the background of the phone, THAT would be cool. I need no app to tell the time. UGH. fail
A watch should be quick and easy to read, you should not have to 'figure it out' - but of course, that is my opinion. I prefer a traditional display, either analogue or digital, or both.
I mean, a clock that has a binary readout, using the decimal clock/calendar of Star Trek may be a cool and interesting thing, but I'm interested in local time, and fast....
BUT, you'd be wearing this watch for the cool factor. When you wear a watch like this, time is not important.
Come on...that's not that hard to figure out.
You shouldn't have to "figure it out".
IMHO at least. Same with chess sets. If I can't tell what a piece is supposed to be without context to other pieces, it's no good.
Damn you Sunday rider!!!
(A man is never satisified).
$100usd Ebay in GB.
Period correct(the frikkin bracelet is 50 years old). .
Will this be a better look????
Once you understand the layout, it is no harder to read than any other watch that maybe doesn't have numbers on the face. It is really very simple and elegant.
I just got scuba certified....a great excuse to buy a dive watch, no?
Freaking AWESOME You are going to keep looking at that watch all day, you are going to wreck your neck.
Love that watch even more...
Thanks for all the compliments.
Not to mislead anyone the watch in the picture is not mine The dial is similar but mine is all stainless(at this point) and a calendar movement.
Here's a link to the bracelet I bought, scroll dowwn for some nice pics.
I think it's gonna come out nice(a little more utilitarian than the one in the picture) and I'll post some pics of the finished watch after the bracelet gets here. The seller is in London
I'm off to my watchmaker in the next town. He is long retired and working out of his basement.
He must be 80 years old and sharp, anyway I'll get some oil on the works and learn the SN., maybe he will time it for me, not sure of his capabilities but my guess is he will surprise me. A new gasket would be nice as well.
It's a watch from his day.
I sure hope my guy knows what he is doing, when I questioned him he looked at me and said, "I graduated from the Elgin College of watchmaking and I have worked on every kind of watch there is. I can fix anything except a broken heart."
Must be a standard 'old watchmaker's line.
We both laughed.
Sounds like it is in good hands. With a sense of humour too.
