    ETERNA really gets it right with that beautiful 'Pie Pan' dial cyma, timeless simplicity.

      First outing for this one today. Think it may need a week on the wrist, a few strap changes and a decent review. Initial impressions are good, not so taken with the bracelet though. Wears much larger than 38mm, more like a 40mm, and looks bigger than my Speedie (40mm) in the watch box.

      Happy Friday chaps

        I had to look this up, specs, price, etc... Wonderful rendition of (I think) Oyster-inspired case, but keeping enough distance to not be passed of as a Rolex/Tudor homage. A sort of vintage Ulysse Nardin vibe to the dial. I like it.

        The case is really nicely done. Lovely facets and angles and the polished/brushed ratio is just right. I really loved this when it was released but it was 41mm, so when they announced the 38mm version I didn't hesitate.

      Crystal looks nice, what is the lug width?

        20mm, so got quite a few straps lying around that fit. Quick release pins means the bracelet is off in seconds.

          It’s a nice spring morning here in North Canterbury. Not particularly warm yet, but nice and mild. Dead calm as well so made for a pleasant walk down to the Kaiapoi River with the dog to check out the new pontoons. It’s starting to look really good.
          Great to see a relatively speedy recovery from the vBulletin woes for the forum. I’d imagine it’s caused a fair bit of carnage round the world so 4 days of lost data isn’t much to worry about. Have a great weekend folks.

          Glad to see that everything was sorted out and the forum is through to the other side more or less in one piece.

          Vostok Antimag on for Friday. This has fast become my go-to if nothing else is striking out from the watch box on a particular day and I am really glad I have it. Hope you all have a great weekend!

            Ok, so my curious Vostok obsession continues with a mod / pilot / project in progress vibe creeping in. Probably also influenced by the bezeless GMT as per a couple of days ago. Anyway my first self modding attempt has begun. Waiting very patiently for a bezel... while trying out strap options.

              Looking good kiwi.bloke, they are pretty forgiving watches for modding thankfully and even if something goes badly wrong you aren't out by too much money. On my own mod project I managed to have a small screw fall in between the balance spring, but even after removing it not-too-delicately it still keeps the same rate of -8s per day.

              Is it one of Meranom's smooth bezels on the way to complete the bezel-less Brando GMT look?

                FKJB! Killer wrist shot to show that egg-shell dial, Tempus. That Nato (stock?) really goes well with it.
