WURW Thursday 12.16.2021

Post by thunder1 » Thu Dec 16, 2021 6:17 am

Well, starting the day off w/ a recently arrived & previously loved, Longines Heritage Classic Sector..the original owner fitted a BoR bracelet to it, and so far, I like that look...I'm very impressed both w/ the legibility of the dial and its' appearance..a very sharp looker, in my book..Art Deco done right..highly recommended wrist wear!!..here's a pic..

For later this afternoon/evening, a newly acquired Steinhart Ocean 39 Tropic Plexi..here's a pic..

It appears to feature the same 39mm SS case, grey bezel & domed plexi crystal of the Ocean 39 Marine Black..here's a pic of the 2 side by side..My initial impressions are mostly positive..the brown dial is something a little different for moi and I can see that it would go well w/ khaki pants..still, I prefer the Marine Black to it..

^^^Congrats on the two new pickups. Damn, that Longines is incredible. Longines does dials right and the case finishing is beautiful.

I really like the look of the chocolate dial on the new Steinhart. I feel like they should have done something more with the bezel? What that would be, I don't know but it looks mismatched to me? But the chocolate, it's perfect.

Yeah, the overall look is a little, well, different?..doesn't seem to be selling out as well as some other recent Steiny/Gnomonon offerings.. :scratch:

Maybe if the bezel insert was more faded?

Speaking of bezel inserts, is that a sapphire bezel on your new watch, Svaglic?

^^^Sharp looking Torgeon. Bought the tan dial version a couple of years back and gave to my son-in-law. He loves it.

At sale prices, a really great watch. Would love to see them do 38-40mm. Would be a great beater.

The review says it’s glass. I haven’t delved much into it yet, I got it for the looks and size, so I haven’t researched it.

Cool. When you have time, post up a review.
