  1. T W Steel....Rant or Rave

    They keep good time and you like how they look, that's fine - we're all different. You asked for people's opinions and I gave you mine - they're clown's watches for the fashion obsessed with no substance to back up their size or price
  2. T W Steel....Rant or Rave

    Nothing wrong at all with Miyota - they make some decent quality movements and their lower spec stuff is excellent value. My beef is with TW Steel putting a £1 movement in that huge case when they could have spent a few more pounds and put a long life movement (such as the Miyota 1L60 for example) in there. It reeks of cost-cutting but I suppose the vast majority of TW Steel buyers don't care - they're watches for people who don't care about watches. And no, I don't have any large quartz watches with tiny movements :P
  3. I just picked one of these up for £250 (pic stolen from elsewhere):
  4. New Bremont Blue S300

    As the owner of a Bremont MB3 and numerous Kontikis I can say they're all great watches. You should definitely buy both
  5. New incoming - first of the year!

    I can't believe I owned it longer than anyone else! It certainly got a LOT of wear in that time. Luckily for you I always kept the bracelet in it's box, otherwise that would have been trashed like the old bezel

    They're just utter tat and worn by those more concerned with form over function in my opinion. This was confirmed when I opened up a workmates TW Steel to do a battery change. They could have spent £5 and stuck a decent Ronda 705LI with a decent battery life or similar inside. Instead they've gone for the cheapest Miyota movement possible. You've got to laugh at this:
  7. New incoming - first of the year!

    It's a great watch. I see someone has changed the bezel insert since I sold it - I did pretty much wreck it mind...
  8. Pilots don't use watches.

    Pretty much every pilot I've ever met (all military) wore a watch - nearly always a chronograph. Breitling Aerospace are very popular although I do see a few cheapskates wearing the issued Pulsar PJN299X1 .

    Yay! If it's number 15/21 it used to be mine ;)
  10. New incoming - first of the year!

    RLT 36 Nautilus?
  11. RAKETA nephrite

    That is really nice. What's with the "Renaissance" on the dial?
  12. Strange face on raketa

    Here you go Brad - a load of old Soviet/Russian catalogues which should make it a bit easier for you to spot genuine watches: https://get.google.com/albumarchive/113098239036073221216?source=pwa

    Oops - I misread it. Al the bezels are interchangeable too: https://meranom.com/en/search/?search=bezel&limit=100 Check out pers184 on eBay too - his homemade bezels are very good indeed.

    There's a few on Meranom: https://meranom.com/en/search/?search=dial&filter_name=dial
  15. Vostok Dials

    Yep - all interchangeable.
