    Cool! I was wondering where that went to. Guess the folks on TM miss out on this beauty :P

    It's a very unique piece, and just shows how individualistic Orient can be. On titanium, I dislike the weight, but love the feel of it on the skin. PR is great for start-ups, and will also tell you whether you're normally active enough to achieve full-wind (so it kind of judges you :? )



    ...problem is I am buggered if I know how I did it

    ...just remember what you drank. Drink the same again, and you should ace it again. (..drink more of it, and you'll be compiling binary source codes in no time )

    Come Friday, I think I'll wear my Seiko KEZR.

        I must start looking in to this brand.

        I luvvv titanium watches and this piece looks great. What would the retail for one of these be? Anyone? :roll:

        I have been wearing my NEW titanium piece this week. The Meg has been pushed to the case for a while. Yes I do mean NEW. My original 20,000ft decided one day to slow right down and then stop.

        On getting it collected by Charmex Switzerland and without it for five weeks they diagnosed a faulty date wheel cog that had broken a tooth and jammed inside.

        Their guarantee is, "If you can break it we will replace it". I guess I must have done as they made me another and I got it last week including another two year warranty. :D Even better made than the first example, and the finishing lines are far sharper. Lets hope it's more reliable

          Dave! You've killed a 20,000 FT ...Congrats on the replacement, and look forward to hearing more about its accuracy (I remembered your original did very well on that).

          I believe this model has been discontinued, so you can't get them any more. However, there's a couple of sellers in the States who still has stock (though in white and cream dials only). Please PM me for the links. Cheers!

              Would you believe I've looked at my beautiful Panda at least a dozen times today, and I still couldn't tell you what time it is

              The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

                    Customers Monster sent for regulation, quite enjoying wearing it actually... after much messing round it's timekeeping is pretty much as good as it'll get, about 5 seconds a day quick with me wearing it, on the bench timer its 3 seconds quick over the positions - the watch will probably need a full overhaul and clean if its timing is to be further improved. I think these are only given target parameters of something like +/- 15s-20s per day from the factory - they're not what you'd call 'balanced, flowed, ported, polished and blueprinted' :D











                    Wow - the Seiko Chrono you have there is a beauty oldtimer, such amazing watches those, incredible history really. Don I am looking forward to seeing some more pics of the KEZR mate, looks interesting. Dave's 20k is a Monster, I can hardly belive it had a fault its so massive... good on them for being great and re-newing the Warranty now thats SERVICE, the watch itself almost looks managesbale from that angle, even though we know its probably not (Lol). Pete love the Delma and the Case KNife used as a prop is awesome (better than the concrete things used on Trademe the other day (they were just brilliant!!) - psyched I love the Hamilton... actually I love pretty much anything which has a rotating inner bezel (great things, dont often Fall Off) and wonder that strap, stitched leather is it?

                    Yeah - so much Bang 4 Buck w/ Orient, a great watch that (partial to Power Reserve myself also)

                    No - we don't believe you (Liz, you did this didn't you)!!

                      Thanks Harlan, I really like the Hamilton - the strap is a factory rubber one, but the red stitching looks good I think

                      Changed to the Movado for the rest of the day

                          Orient Star World Time on a brown leather Bund strap.. This one has the Nato Stock Number (NSN) on the back of the strap.. 6645-12-145-6415..

                          6645 is the code for time measuring instruments
                          12 is the code for Germany



                          Cheers

                            Cool psyched I love people who swap watches out like that, awesome you're true WIS. The info on the Orient caseback is detailed and interesting isn't it Tony... like the bund, quite cool and very retro imo... I used to have my 1st Seiko carefully worn like that - as for Pete, that's a stupid question


                            Harlan, How are you going to raise the glass to the gob tonite after wearing that monster all day :D :D
