I'm not gonna pay over retail for one! I'm in zero rush. The only bad thing I've heard about the besides the flippers is the blue one leave a blue mark on your arm.

Anyways here is this lady's Rolex I own.



Says Model Defense on the back




And a serial number.
Sadly it was broken and Rolex wanted €5000 just to look at it. I was badly recommended to another shop here and the guy didn't understand me and swapped out the internals for a new one.
Here is the original internals

Gonna look into getting it fixed then sell it.

Edit. It says modèle déposé, also I think the Rolex shop must have said €500 my French was shite back then.

Seiko Sports x HUF collab
The tinted caseback is kinda dope. I'd be more interested if I didn't already have my quartz Divex which is in an identical case.

yeah, that is my fav detail too (bar of course the nato, but I'm a sucker for green nato straps)

@siota (can't tag for some reason), that's a cool Rolex, never seen anything like it. Would be interested to know the history of it, esp with the word defense on the back of it...

Pulled the Tudor out this morning:

It actually says modèle déposé on the back of the Rolex. I got it off Evilbay back in 2015 for my gf at the time.

Yeah, not feeling the gold version of that huf watch… the khaki one is cool but I wouldn’t touch it at those dimensions. I wish Seiko sports went with the Skx013 dimensions instead, it’s more of a Goldilocks size.

The gold one is way to bling bling for me.

My tag is in getting a new sapphire glass put on it, still kinda lusting over a few vintage omegas and of course the Tudor sub 36 AKA my grail/ exit watch!

Impulse bought a 40's Universal Genive military watch that I know nothing about last night. I know nothing about the brand really other than it's Swiss. Just liked the way it looks. What should I know?

awesome! UG is great brand with a cool history, they are mainly known for their polerouter model which is also a great under the radar vintage watch. Because they aren’t really that well known outside of watch nerd circles, 99% of the time you can be rest assured that it won’t be a fake (though it may have some Frankenparts or a redone dial). Also unlikely that you’ll know the service history of it so it might be an idea to get a watchmaker to take a look at it (they can also check whether the movement is legit or not)?

Can we some pics when you get it?

Very sick. Looks good on a nato strap. Make me wonder how my Seamaster would look like on one.

cheers for that, I have a few more vintage inspired straps in the mail, but the crosshair dial gives it a military vibe so it can pull off a nato okay. Would probably look more classic on perlon, but I have a tonne of 18mm natos lying around! Maybe try yours on a bond style strap with stripes as that can often dress it up a bit?

Also surprised at how well it wears for 34mm, has a lot of presence. It’s also a bit of a creeper in that it looks so simple in its design, but that’s what starts to hit you; how did omega perfect this 60 years ago? Mainly wearing with work attire atm, but also versatile enough to go with a t-shirt or even with a suit! Pretty stoked on it, and apparently it’s one of the more rarer references.

thank you for this. Sipping coffee in bed with this, perfect start to a lazy Memorial Day. I’m less anti- watch guy now, I get it.

Started poking around this post to see if anyone was talking about Swatches at Expo 86, the leather wristband Swingers-meets-Hot Topic Nixon watch I tried to pull off 20 years ago, or these corny gps lifehacker CrossFit jobs that are actually sick, but this link is way better.

My dad had his father’s Hamilton watch, it was square. Mom had it serviced a few years ago before he died, maybe I’ll look for it.

Sick!
