    <<<<< WRUW Saturday 11 January 2020 >>>>>

    Do I dare start one here in California, GMT-8? It seems after midnight I sometimes land on another start. OK - we'll try it. Saturday gets late '60s Hamilton micro-rotor Thin-o-Matic.



    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Been so happy with this watch. No scratches despite all the polished surfaces.

    Then suddenly: boom. Deep scratch on the bezel today.

    How does it even happen without one noticing?

    I'd Schwarzkopf it daily, except I couldn't be bothered with the inevitable explanations...

    Always a bummer, but once the first big mark is there you can just enjoy the watch

    Wearing the Blackrock again. Forgot how the solid movement mounting and crown support of the EHC case can make an ETA movement action and feel seem very high end and precise. Not the best looking watch but truly built to be highly functional. I compare it quite favorably to my cherished Explorer II at then half the price years ago in a review. At one eighth of that itís very compelling, and nearly unbeatable. It just doesnít do dressy in a pinch like the EXP II can. This watch makes me sad to see what Ball has become. With these type watches they could challenge the ETA Breitlings and Bremont. I hope they get their groove back someday. Iíll just enjoy this for now.

    Sorry to hear that. It may be something inherent to this case shape. I swear on a few Doxa Iíve have that they were flawless when I took them off and put them on a nightstand. When I got up in the morning there would be a scratch that was impossible to miss. I surmised they were scratched by air. Just as viable as the alternative...Those dam watch fairies.
