Bit of a left-field purchase.

Tanks will always be nice, but that strap is so ugly

I thought so too but I actually like it on. I have a Reverso with the black strap so think it would be too similar with a leather strap.

Thanks, it wasn’t too hard to get - I just put my name down and got it a few months later. To be honest I mainly bought it for the colour as I had the submariner 16610LV years ago and sold it and wouldn’t pay the price they go for now to buy another. It’s got some nice details to it like the green tip on the seconds hand and the chamfered lugs but it’s pretty chunky.

Cheers man - might try and see if any Black bays are in stock in Terminal 5 when i fly next

Nice, I've been thinking about a Santos for a while - the Tank looks good.

Yeah thanks… the only reason I purchased was due to them introducing their own in-house Cartier 1847 MC movement… it’s a peach.

Really like that. Hows the finishing compared to a Rolex or to the JLC?

Have a JLC Master Ultra thin and cant fault the finishing. Thinking of a medium sized Santos De Cartier.

Cheers - it’s actually very good… I’m pleasantly surprised.

Thanks - I have an Omega 2254, Speedmaster Pro, Explorer, Explorer II and a Sub no date. Usually wear the Explorer and Sub to be honest, hence thinking of letting the rest go and sticking to three watches.

Why? I had one and sold it again. For the price the finish is just bad. I still want a day date though.

Any love for the Explorer 2 on here? See huge demand for SS ones, but not so much for the Explorer, any reason in particular outside of hype why that is?
