    Very nice, Aho! Also for anyone interested in the ETA vs Sellita quality debate, I came across the below thread on omega forums during my research where the user “Archer” (experienced watchmaker, from the sounds of it) gives a very detailed breakdown of the different tooth profiles, parts availability and costs, etc. https://omegaforums.net/threads/sinn-356-valjoux7750-or-sellitasw500-help-thoughts.61081/ His remarks are about halfway down.

    So my main concerns at first were overall build quality, and whether or not the SW510 had been optimized or somehow altered to better accommodate manual winding vs the 7750/SW500, which I’ve read have been known to have problems when hand winding just like the 2824/SW200. So far, the case has been really great and it hides it’s thickness very well. The pushers are very crisp. The bezel was very hard to turn, but I’ll get to that in a minute. The tropic strap is actually quite thick and comfortable, and the buckle very high quality. The manual winding action is quite nice, so that tells me that this probably isn’t just a 7750 clone with the rotor removed. It was quite hard when researching to find anything definitive about the SW510mbhb, in terms of what is different about the movement. Perhaps because it’s so new and only in a handful of watches at this point. Regardless, it is running +3 after four days, and I’m pretty sure it gained most of that after the first day. There isn’t much change I can discern during the last two days, but I don’t have a timegrapher(just going off of my atomic g shock). So anyways, I was pretty thrilled with this piece, and decided to keep it. Then today, upon turning the very difficult bezel, and mind you this is bidirectional, so no ratcheting, the bezel literally popped off. It slides back on and stays firmly in place, but if you apply the smallest amount of upward pressure, it pops off. The only thing holding it in place is a gasket. Is this normal for a friction bezel(that’s what this is right?) Anyway, wrote hodinkee an email, because it probably needs to go back. Really irritated because this has been the best timekeeper I’ve had outside quartz.

    What do you guys think about this piece? Reissue of the original chronomaster. Manual wound sellita bi compax movt, no faux lume, actually very impressed with the quality. Wears pretty much like a vintage piece in terms of sizing, though I believe the bezel is 39mm across. Still trying to decide to keep or not, thus the sticker still on the crystal. Dial is pretty damn small.

    Hey y’all! Sorry, too hot for denim right now Breitling Colt 41. This is my favorite piece so far. So much AR! Please excuse fingerprints/smudges.

    Yeah I think that may be the issue. Small is sold out, so can’t exchange it. Might get a shawl cardigan down the line though.

    @goodrain actually that gap doesn’t look too bad! I was participating in the nomos advent everyday hoping for at least something, but no dice haha

    I recently picked up these OSB trench oxfords in “black walnut” roughout. I love the elston last and these are pretty great so far. Grain is pretty mismatched between the two, but wabi sabi I guess

    I love a good bracelet actually, but aside from Tudor I haven’t found a super comfortable one. But for the club I actually considered it! My concern was the long lugs would have it sit too far away from the case

    I was reading your post and was reminded by @fre-co’s Russell Mocs below; Russell used to offer a custom minimalist boot. It’s had a zero drop vibram rubber sole, and I think they also offered leather camp sole. I believe they also did wide widths. I never ponied up, but something to think about if you’re ever in the market. Edit: they still make them apparently https://www.russellmoccasin.com/minimalist-footwear-custom-made/

    @discworkI really like it. It’s a strange anomaly in that it can do both tool and dress pretty well. Check out the #longinessector posts on insta; there’s some good examples of it dressed up there. It’s kind of ironic that this piece is probably what I would wear in dressier situations, and has the least polished steel surfaces of the 3 here. In fact only the case back is polished, and the rest is nicely brushed. I have just a couple minor quibbles so far; I forgot how noisy the 289X based movements can be. They also seem less solid somehow. Like if you tap the case you can hear it. Kind of hard to describe. That’s pretty minor though. Other thing is the 30m water resist. I’m never going to go swimming or anything with a leather strapped watch, but I always appreciate a bit more towards the “what if”. I just can’t understand how they couldn’t have gotten a bit more out of it. I’ve read some stuff on the dink about how 30m is plenty, blah blah blah. While I do agree, I guess I just get nervous with a snap on caseback, and push-in crown. Other than that, it’s great so far. Perfect size for me. I find myself drawn to that space of 38-39mm lately. The dial is also something special in person.

    State of the collection. Still have the bb41 as well; trying to figure out what to replace it with. Sorry, no denim, but I think the watch lovers will give me a pass

    Gents, anyone have any sweaters by Dehen 1920? I ordered their submariner sweater in size medium and it fits quite large; especially billowy in the arms. Planning on sending back. Just wondering if this fit is common among their range.

    @mpukasI haven’t worn my pair yet and they’re still sitting on ice. Unfortunately nothing to report on them other than the initial measurements. They’re likely to be next in the queue if I can stop bringing in other pairs
