  • Just thinking, the steel one is bigger, taller, and steel is heavy, but it only weighs 17g more than the smaller, thinner, titanium one - this makes no sense to me


    239g of pure stainless

    The zilla's rolling at 222g of titanium good ness

      Hi Harlan, just copied this from suppaparts website

      https://suppaparts.com/Zilla-Bracelet.php

      The Suppa Zilla Bracelet is a combination of titanium adapters with a titanium link bracelet and a stainless steel adjustable divers clasp. Made for BJ8050, BJ8051, BJ8044, NH6930, NH6934. All the bracelet parts are brushed to match. You can remove the bracelet and use these adapters with other 24mm straps.

      Hopefully this solves the weight issue

      Ohhh yeah! Thats starts to make a wee bit more sense I guess... Ti 'should' weigh a helluva lot less, I mean it is physically smaller too...

      (Unless somehow there is 'more' in it)

    I’m one day into a three day course at our Auckland corporate office. I still don’t get much opportunity to wear this watch so I took the chance today. Love it as much as always.

      I enjoyed having this on the wrist again today. And yes Don, it is an 8269. If anyone doesn’t know how special these watches are I highly recommend doing a little Googling. You’ll likely find a couple of threads right here on TKNZ along with others on overseas forums.

        Leroy, is this your watch? ...https://i.postimg.cc/3NJ2cH46/8269.jpg ...If so, 1993, and was mine until 2010, then jakem looked after this watch until 2012. If this it is, then I'm very happy to see it with you )

          Colours are well-composed on this piece. I like it more than if it were just black or orange.

            Brilliant consistency of patina. Makes me think... Since we have custom pre-washed and distressed denim jeans and jacket, I wonder whether someone has figured a way to accelerate a patina aging effect on a new watch dial. This would be as opposed to just a repro-style new dial. Maybe an atmospheric and chemical aging process over, say, a few weeks?

            There could be a market for something like that.


        • I opened the watch box today and just wasn’t really sure what to wear. Then I realised I was almost skimming over everything without really paying any attention to my Times Helix Works. I then realised that I think it’s been quite some time since I wore it as I often have less opportunity to do so these days and other options that have been first choice. But it was the perfect choice for walking the dog (and child) at the beach this morning and I definitely felt afterwards that it deserves more wrist time. It’s such a comfortable watch to wear and that’s important as I often find watches I like aren’t particularly comfy on my oddly shaped wrist. This Timex is also just kinda cool. Not quite ‘vintage’ yet, but certainly starting to get a bit older. It’s not a ‘tough’ watch like a G Shock, but it’s unobtrusive enough that even at 48mm wide it’s an easy daily wearer. And I’ve never really been able to try out all it’s features so next time I fly somewhere I might wear it and see what altitude it thinks we’re at when cruising. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

            A lovely weekend story, Leroy... How a man relates to his watch is a source of never ending fascination. Many enthusiasts do what you do, allowing yourself the freedom at any given moment to pick out a watch that fits the occasion. In watches, we intentionally move ourselves towards being spoiled for choice

            Some, like me, avoid the dilemma of choosing, and simply assign watches in the box to fixed given days or situation. However, this can become anal retentive, e.g. I have a watch assigned to be worn on public holidays that fall on odd-numbered months of the year @@ haha
