My set screws experience a positive stop before I bottom the tensioning ring on the groove in the case.
With the bezel off the watch, I can only tighten the set screws so much before the threads bottom on the bezel.
Mine seem to stop part way. Theyre just deep enough so that the bezel set screws sit flush with the surface.
I've also experiemented at length with repositioning the tensioning ring in relation to the set screws.
There are some better positions than others, but nothing really fixes it.
I agree with you on one thing (because I happen to like the H20 Kalmar very much), and that's that name-calling ("you're a troll") is a 6 year old's behavior and taunt. You are not guilty of that. Makes more sense to correct or suggest a different behavior, then to denigrate, label it "troll." When that happens, as it did in this thread, I wonder which is the more obnoxious offense?
Cojis had a flamboyant response to the design of the Kalmar. Do I agree with him, no. But my question is: A troll is defined the moment someone takes the perceived bait, which raises again the question: Which is the more obnoxious offense?
Well I just picked this up from a member the other day. What a cool watch. I was a bit surprised on the size but it fits well on my 7.25 wrist. The lugs do not overhang like they do on my Helson (also a Ti) but it is definitely heavier than the Helson and surprisingly taller. I dont think I would want this in a SS version. A little thinner would be nice as well but no complaints overall. I got the black dial - looks more like a dark grey but looks great. I think this would look great with the black bezel as well. As others have said, the packaging is the best I have seen for a micro (and I have been through a lot). Just nice little touches that make a difference in my opinion. The only bad thing is I am probably going to break my rule of one in and one out - I dont have one I want to get rid of....Oh well - on to the pics.
Very nice strap! Looking good
watch looks great. I'm tending to think it looks best, at least for me, when the flow visually from bezel to case/lugs is of one color, as yours is. I like Clemens' bold choice of the take-no-prisoner hands. He could have opted for something wimpy or safe. A brilliant and--as far as can be done these days-- original outside the box design that looks killer.
major kudos to Clemens and those of you bought one.
What I've recently recognized as an important ingredient in how much I like a watch is how the hands in concert with the dial create almost an excitement for the minute hand in its movement from 12 down to 6, or anywhere else. It's something I look for now; it's an inherent kinetic energy that looks way more vital than the manufactured pointer sticks they are.
Mine came in last week, but have been so busy at work, I had no time to post, or even wear it yet, so a blackberry pic. great watch... Nice work, Clemens...
