    #3/7 today: Vantage. I took the pic about an hour ago.

    Have a great weekend.

    Greetings to all, and Hello Menno, from the other side if the world....

    A 0352 Vantage 'Lume Shot' offered as a nice contrast to Menno's excellent photography.....

    I am transitioning to a month of night shifts at work, so thought this shot of my Vantage was appropriate...

    Cheers to all, and hope all have a Great Day!

    -Best.....

    I finally had to see what all the fuss was about with the Hadley Roma oyster bracelet on the Kingston. Wow! It's great! IMO, it wears more comfortably than the stock riveted bracelet. The links are thicker, the clasp is thinner, and the lines of taper flow beautifully into the case of the Kingston. It is especially cool that the solid end links fit so well. Thanks for pioneering this for us, Menno!

    Looks great and great pics as well. Must say I'm not sure I'm the one who came up with this combination!

    That last picture is great James, the gilt is really popping out on that one! And yes the Hadley Roma feels right at home on the Kingston. I also like the heavier weight on it.

    Great pictures, James; especially that last one. Caught the Kingston 'golden flash' just right. Awesome!

    Your Paradive looks gorgeous, my friend. I promised myself not to stare at these kind of hypnotizing fotos, and then I forget and bad things hapen.

    You make me start for a Paradive hunt now! Thanks, eh?

    How is your Paradive's accuracy on the wrist?

    Wear it in the best of health . . .

    'Buddy Boy' (the Cat) is generally very reserved about anything that does not involve food, treats, rodents or birds, so he isn't putting on an act -

    As far as singing, if I had done that, he wouldn't be anywhere I could get him in the picture, whether I wanted to or not!

    As far as the Paradive, You're welcome- - if you saw the blue glow of the lume in the sapphire bezel, and the way it actually slightly lights the inside of the whole bezel in half-light, in person - well... if you're like me you are Doomed, and would be on the waiting list for the next round, if they are available again. That aspect of this watch is the major surprise for me, and along with my impression that the watch wears much smaller than its apparent size and weight. The comfort is what has grown and surprises - It is really subtly amazing in that respect.

    I'll bet you can tell I like mine, and if one becomes available with sapphire bezel and Type II dial, I'll try to be first on the list - It is that good.

    Accuracy? easily one of the most accurate Autos I've ever owned - (See my last post in accuracy thread.) (Right now it is actually beating my quartz 1990 steel MaraNav which will lose a second or two now and again -it is 22 years old after all -even if it does have a fresh battery.)

    Thank you for kind remarks, and Enjoy yours also.

    -Best to all.

    Dear OmegaCosmicMan,

    Thank you very much for your precious time and lovely reply.

    When it comes to singing, no one can compete with me! I am that terrible! Trust me

    All of the MKII owners are amazed with the accuracy of their gorgeous MKII timepieces! Me? Well, I am amazed with my MKII UTC's accuracy!!! It has been spot on so far, too. I am badly obsessed by brutal accuracy, and now I can say I am satisfying my accuracy mania / ego quite well.

    And yes, your awesome fotos make my fingers itchy again. You know what this means quite well, I am sure

    What is the difference between Type I and Type II dials? Does it come with the day / date combination? Does any type of Paradive have day / date feature?

    Yes, I noticed that gorgeous lume, and it is awesome!

    I am still continuing my UTC LRRP 48's accuracy test:














    Happy and Healthy and Accurate Sunday, Everybody . . .

    #4/7 The Stingray today! On a nato by eBay seller 'Watchbarn*com22'.

    Have a great Sunday everybody (now turning on the TV to watch the Olympic Sailing - Finn class; an epic battle ahead between the British and Dutch contender. They are not really friends...)
