    To me if the watch is a looker and reasonably priced (specs, fit & finish and movement wise for a less than $200 watch), I wouldn't worry too much about what's inside. It's not like spending over $2,000 for an ETA 2824 watch.

    Actually I have to ask myself. "Why do I need another watch?"

    Oh, I think I'm much improved! I just love the looks of the new Steinhart Military 42, I'm a big fan of that 30s pilot style. Not getting a wind up though, even if a second one turns up much cheaper.

    ...but I'm afraid of going the way of replacing cigarettes with gum and keeping the addiction. Just checked and I own 6 quartz watches already! I think I had only one not very long ago... what the hell happened!!

    Well, in that case, you could definitely go with a mechanical. How does the Steinhart Military 42 look? The Archimede flieger is on my short list btw.

    I'm not so regular on WUS so I don't know if we can post direct links? Although Steinhart is a sponsor... but then there's the sponsor's areas... don't know. Go their website, it's right in the front page. I have enough pilot watches and I'm not going to pay €500 for a freaking watch at this stage, I'm done with that!!

    As to the Archimede... don't do it!! I spent a long time trying different fliegers, as Laco is the logic choice but are very expensive. When I finally got an Archimede 42H I thought I was done in the A dial department. What a disappointment! It's a very conventional and low case, the blue hands are VERY blue. I sold it the very same day I got it. For the money, the Steinhart is probably the best choice, beautiful watch with a lot of value. It wears very big though, those lugs probably make it closer to a 47mm watch than 44mm.

    A very decent and cheap A dial on the 42mm category is the less known Tisell. They claim flamed blue steel hands - like Laco and Stowa - but I'm not sure about that, a thing like that is usually very expensive as it has to be done by hand. But whatever it is, it sure looks like it.



    They come from South Korea, use an ETA 2824-2 clone and that particular one above had an upgraded sapphire crystal that costs you an extra 30 bucks or so. Between that and the Archimede, I would go with the Tisell without blinking.

    Thanks for the heads up about the Archimede! The Tisell looks good.


    BTW, strap change. This combo is slowly growing on me.

    Hiro (or anyone) what tool are you using to chandge your straps so often. The few times I have changed mine (with an admittedly cheap tool) it was a headache. Lol

    I personally use a Bergeon 6111 as I needed a small folk tip for Omega bracelets and an extra wide folk tip for removing rubber straps from the SKX divers.




    For this watch, pretty much any common (medium size folk tip) spring bar tools would work as the tip of the spring bars are relatively wider.

    This is going to sound like an heresy and nuts but although I own such a tool, I mush prefer to use the blade of a small driver (a 0.9 or 1.2mm). Maybe because I'm more used to it, maybe because I can grab it easier just at the bottom but I've made only a scratch on a watch once and it was with the proper tool!

    I'm not recommending to anyone to follow my example though, just saying...
