I was wondering if anyone have a contact with Steinhart watches to propose a drop or if these watches have been proposed on drop ?
I find these watches desirable
Thank you for help
Seiko kinetic mod- brand new watch ran for a few wks, until capacitor completely died. Installed new one ran same an died. Watch has been in my box for several yes now. After finding a few connection on where to get stuff, from this forum, watch works great. Found a newer movement on ebay cheap, so traded out just the movement kept face an hands. Replace capacitor for this movement an changed the flat mineral crystal with slightly domed sapphire with purple tint, I just love it. Change band to obviously, this is type of watch I always liked to wear to work in.
I'm just not ready to admit that this watch is too big for me.
A quick bit of rough prototyping. That suede is soo warm and soft (my winter watch? haha), but I don't know how it'll hold up if I break a sweat.
A hybrid nato strap, if you will. If I want to stick with this concept, I'll have to lengthen the middle portion so that the rest of the strap conforms to my wrist (the lugs hold the pins pretty high) and then sew up most of the two cuts so it all keeps shape. Otherwise I could figure out a way to hold the watch down without such cuts.
Closer to what I'm getting at (I folded the side bits). Still need to come up with a simple closure.
Don't hold your breath, folks; I haven't lost my job, and my motivation for personal projects is ever an ebb and flow kind of thing.
p.s. Why does it take five clicks to upload a stinkin' picture?
These British Designed timepieces feature Sapphire Crystal on face and back. The design of the dial has been taken from the Thomas Ore clocks of the past, using roman numerals and similar hand designs to the original. All watches are stainless steel with stainless steel bracelets and are water resistant to 200 meters. Internals are Swiss Made Sellita Automatic Movements.
I invite you to Help me support this up and coming Micro Brand!
We’re thrilled with the success of our first Brand Spotlight with Bulova, so we’re riding the momentum into our second by showcasing another long-standing partner of ours, one of the most well-known outdoor brands in the world: Victorinox.
While Victorinox may be known today for its reliable watches (among many other goods), it’s impossible to discuss them without first mentioning the original Swiss Army Knife.
Victorinox has been around since 1884, when founder Karl Elsener opened his own cutlery business in Switzerland. Elsener’s idea for a compact knife with a wide array of practical functions proved it was here to stay, and he eventually won a contract to supply the Swiss army with pocket knives. When Elsener’s mother, Victoria, passed away, he named his company after her. The name was later combined with “inox,” the French word for “stainless,” as all of its knives were, and still are, made of stainless steel.
Of course, the Swiss Army Knife is only one aspect of...
I've been looking at getting myself a watch winder, and although Drop offers quite a few WOLF options, it doesn't look like they offer the newer Axis collection at the moment.
What are your thoughts on it? Here's the WOLF website page as well as a double winder review from WatchDavid. I really like the copper, but I'm not sure it would go with a lot of watches considering the colour contrast, so if I were to buy one I think I'd go with the powder coat finish.
I have also created a poll - if it gets enough interest, I would hope that Drop would consider it as an option to negotiate with WOLF for a future drop - see my tweets with Drop here.
The link to the poll is here. Thanks for reading!
