From the pics and video I have seen the colour looks off, purple-blue and pink.

MOB i've got a pelagos LHD version with red text and alternating red date wheel. I really like it but the bracelet isn't as amazing as i'd like. Titanium is a bit of scratch magnet, but those gripes aside I really enjoy it. Solid 500m diver and doesn't feel as bulky as it should.

@Crackajack: Yeah it’s the same bezel colours as the white gold BLRO. It’s due to the application of the ceramic and they start with a red base and apply the blue and for whatever reason they can’t get the colours to match the original Pepsi bezel coloring. In person I still do like it, doesn’t look as washed out as in pics.

Obviously weight isn’t an issue with the titanium but how do you find the 42m dial. I always thought it looked rather large in wrist shots.

i did worry that as well, and even for someone with small wrists it doesn't feel that large. wears really well on the wrist.

Yep, I've seen it irl. I love the pepsi GMT, but not in ceramic. It works for BLNR but if I ever get a pepsi it'll be a vintage one.

Yeah I had them both in hand (well WG BLRO not SS) and the blue on my BLNR is much more vivid and true blue than the purple hue off the BLRO, still nice though in my opinion.

My 1.5 year old Junghans Max Bill Chrono is losing time. Even if I wear it for a day or manually wind it just dies over night. Not sure what the fuck I've done. Anyone know how much getting it serviced might set me back? Any chance I could blag it under warranty?

Mostly rascal luxury watches as much as half price in the Selfridges sale (Breitling, TAG etc.)

There's a significant price difference there though!

The Heuer Carrera with the panda dial is nice but you could comfortably get a pre-Tag vintage at that price

True, but new Tudor's just scream fake rolly. And I hate the fake vintage look as well.

Ironic given that it's the most recognisable feature but the bezel on the new 'Pepsi' GMTs are a dealbreaker. The colours are totallyoff and the font is dreadful especially compared with the classic.

I do actually, I inquired at Alsal on the Strand last week and they wanted £300 to service my Chronoscope (which I bought there).

Anyone got experience of selling through watchmaster? Looking to sell a Sea-Dweller, any other recommendations appreciated.

Cool cheers. How long did it take to turn around?
