    Casio Oceanus OCW-T200S review

    Thank you for your answer. I worded my previous comment poorly, by "the top of my wrist (where the watch would sit)" I wanted to say that my wrist is 53mm wide at the spot where I would wear the watch. I saw the picture you mention and I wasn't sure whether ~5mm of extra wrist width would be enough to make the watch look appropriate and not too big. But as you say, there is only one way to know for certain. Thanks for the good luck! I hope it will fit.
  5. Hi Oliver, I would look at the overall width of your wrist instead of just the top of the wrist. As you can see in a picture in a previous comment, the bracelet goes straight down at 49mm so it won't extend beyond the width of your wrist. I think this watch should be ok for you but there is only one way to find out. Good luck!

    Casio Oceanus OCW-T200S review

    Hi nordwulf, your review was the one that has finally tipped me over to the "I WANT" mindset. I'm still wondering about one thing, however. The circumference of my wrist is 7 inches, but the top of my wrist (where the watch would sit) is quite thin at 53 millimetres. I'm worried that the watch would look too big on me because of the 49mm lug-to-lug distance. What do you think?

  8. After 3.5 weeks with occasional wear under neutral lighting. Occasional swim in fresh water lakes. The strap buckle also gets the same patina as the watch.
  9. A few weeks ago, I gave my take from a week on the wrist with the Yema Superman GMT. The experience of seeing how much quality, features, brand history and fun you can get from a watch in-and-around the £1,000 price point was refreshing, especially in an enthusiast community that often seems engulfed by £5k+ offerings from high-end luxury manufacturers. This week I’m continuing on that journey with the review of the Christopher Ward C65 Sandhurst. Read more: https://barkandjack.com/2020/08/12/a-week-on-the-wrist-the-christopher-ward-c65-sandhurst/
  10. The next day still new and clean. Patina slowly starts to develop after 2 1/2 weeks.
  11. My bronze C60 was purchased new from CW. It arrived with some patina (a bit uneven) already on it and I wanted to start out clean. So it was time for a quick bath and light scrubbing to start out with a shiny clean bronze C60. I used 1 teaspoon of citric acid and 1 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate as instructed by CW. The patina came off pretty quickly and probably didn't really have to use a toothbrush at all. But it may depend on how much patina there is on the watch. It looks like new again after the bath and I am looking forward to see the patina develop again. Comments on the post in the CW Aficionados group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/CWAficionados/permalink/650581402196570/ The watch as it arrived. Citric acid can be found in the canning section at Walmart and I am sure many other stores as well. Sodium bicarbonate is baking powder and can be found in, you guessed it, the baking aisle. Also available from Amazon and other online stores. Mix the ingredients in a bowl, put the watch on top and add water so the watch is complete submerged. Patina was very light to begin with so I only let it soak for about 8 minutes. I used a new soft toothbrush to finish up and it came out like a brand new watch. Instruction video from CW:
  12. This watch was purchased from an authorized dealer in Japan in 2017. It has been worn occasionally as part of a larger collection of watches. The watch is in very good condition but does show a few signs of wear. There is a very small nick in the bezel at 6 o'clock. The case does not have any nicks or dents but may have a few samll hairline scratches in a few places. The bracelet has some scratches on the clasp and some on the bracelet towards the rear, common while wearing a watch at a desk. All of the minor imperfections described above are only noticeable in close-up pictures and of course will be hardly noticeable while on the wrist. The bracelet is sized for a 7.5" wrist and 2 extra links are included. Pictures shows everything that is included in this sale. This SARW015 model was discontinued a few years ago and become harder to find. I haven't worn this watch for a while now so it is time to find a new owner.

I can accept Paypal Friends and Family from a bank account (no charge) or regular Paypal with Buyers Protection (please add 3%). Zelle Pay through many US banks can be done as well without any extra charges. I prefer to ship within the USA but can also ship to Canada (+$35). About me I am a watch enthusiast and enjoy trying out new watches. To keep the collection to a reasonable size, some of the watches have to find new owners who can enjoy them more than I do. Most of my watches get minimal wear and are often in excellent condition. My watches come from a smoke, pet and child-free home and usually spend time in a watch box on my desk. While I unfortunately can not accept regular returns, I guarantee the watch condition will be as described and I will be happy to accept returns if it is not. I can not accept returns if you just don't like the watch, too big/small and other personal reasons. Why would you buy from me if you don't know me? I have been buying and selling on eBay as a private seller since 1999 with 100% feedback. Please check me Seller feedback here: link .

  14. The world’s most accurate chronograph movement, the ETA 251.264, meets an Aston Martin inspired design at a world-beating price. This special buy limited edition, created especially for our July Sale, is £300 below the price it would normally be as we want to (gear!) shift the last of our 251.264 movements. But hurry, with only 350 pieces you’ll need to be as fast as a DB4 Zagato to secure one! Power. Precision. Rarity If ever a watch was defined by its movement, then the C65 AM GT Limited Edition is it. The COSC-certified ETA 251.264 calibre represents the apex of quartz timekeeping technology, with a tolerance of just -10/+10 seconds per year (0.027 seconds a day). Used only in our elite racing chronographs before, when we realised stocks of the movement were low – and we wouldn’t be able to get more – we set out to create a watch that fulfilled its potential. And at a truly accessible price. That watch is the new C65 AM GT Limited Edition. This is a timepiece steeped in automotive history. Instead of the traditional ‘12-hour’ design, its dial has a speedo aesthetic influenced by the dashboard of the Aston Martin DB4 Zagato. Thanks to the power of the ETA 251.264, there’s a wealth of timing options. From the centre-stop seconds function to the 60-minute and 12-hour counters – plus the 1/10 seconds register – everything is covered. There’s also a tachymeter bezel to calculate the speed of passing vehicles when you’re trackside. Though with only 350 in existence – and now with an exclusive 40 percent off its planned price – you’ll have to quick off the grid to get yours. ETA 251.264 Quartz Chronograph One of the most accurate quartz chronographs on the market, this COSC-certified ETA 251.264 boasts a tolerance of just -10/+10 seconds per year (0.027 seconds a day). And its thermo-compensated structure means extreme heat won’t affect its accuracy either. As a chronograph it has few equals, and offers a wide range of timing functions. Aside from telling the time, it has both 60-minute and 12-hour subdials, plus a 1/10 seconds register. There’s also a centre-stop seconds function and a date wheel.

  16. I found these new models on an Italian website. Pricing is slightly less than the recently introduced models with rotating compass bezel and availability is September 2020.
