    Love the “chamfer” !

    A chamfer so slick and glassy you wish you could “slide” down it whilst licking a drumstick!

    See this only now .... don't know how to respond to the chamfer-post

    Lug-holes, that's an easier one. Like those and wished all watches had / have drilled lugs. Makes strap- or bracelet changes so much easier.

    Is it because you do not know what “chamfer” is?
    It is a “finish detail” found on the mid casing...
    I can elaborate with some images that depict this long lost feature once found on early “pre Supercase” ROLEX oysters...

    They [ROLEX] did away with this very nice detail as it 'modernized' the line - robbing the midcasing of character. It prolly saved $ and TIME for the mfg process too as well

    Nope, I very well do - it's your (perhaps Freudian) poetic desire of what you want seeing that chamfer

    Yes I saw the image with the slide and I also noticed the "drumstick" (ice-cream in this case). But again .......

    Nothing too serious here; let's move on.

    Aaah yes, I was quite surprised to see this midcasing "detail" on the TUDOR, but then, my eye shot towards the "winding thingy"/crown/whatever; and all of sudden = frown! Why did they do that? I dunno, maybe to be different, I guess. But the crown was a big let down...

    But then this appeared...
    And some TUDOR love came back:

    Yeah, I’d prefer the Black Bay with Mercedes hands. The normal dial with snowflake hands just looks wrong to me.

    The Pelagos is cool but the steep angle of the dial near the plots screams Seiko to me. Other than that it’s really nice. Love the matte lumed ceramic bezel insert.
