I would like to get your attention to Polish brand Balticus - what would you say to organize a drop of their Gray Seal or Star Dust watches? In Poland they are very appreciated. Especially as for the such a young company.
Great watches, beautifully made with good mechanizm.
Let me know what do you think.
I haven't seen a Pepsi bezel diver out there worth anything other than the Rolex and Seiko. Seems like a Squale 1545 with a blue and red bezel would be perfect for a Massdrop special- Squale doesn't make one, but if enough people are interested, I bet they'd do a limited run. I don't have a Squale yet and haven't seen them here yet- anyone else interested? I'd like to knock two birds down with one stone- grab a Squale 1545 and a Pepsi bezel watch at the same time.
Hi guys ! I thought maybe we can start a thread on cool watch exhibition casebacks ! I will start with mine (it is my only one thus far). Nothing special on my Red Star watch but I dig it, it’s a sapphire glass in both format and back, simple but very accurate movement for a watch of that class. Let me know what you have !
My WristCheck for today is the Undone BaseCamp! Originally I had planned to pickup the Undone Type XX but decided against it and picked up a super sweet BaseCamp.
I’ve seen vintage watches over the years that sported this exact look and style but the price tag (and risk) was too high. Undone did a great job of capturing the retro look that I’ve always wanted.
That black sterile bezel, super bright orange hour hand, retro beige lume, and olive NATO simply sings!
....I’m in love with this look!

My older brother is always out of time ( he don't even owns a phone..! )
This was his favorite watch through the 90's but put it away long ago after it stopped and someone told him it was broken. It is a British fashion quartz watch. I recently found it among my stuff. It's original strap was stainless steel but many parts where missing. I did some cleaning, opened it with my tool kit, tried a new battery and 'boom' it works perfectly.
The sandy dial looks still quite cool so I'm going to surprise him and give it back to him in working condition. 'No more excuses brother!'
