    Received a 756 Diapal Today

    About a year ago I finally broke down and bought a Speedy. It's been on my wrist all but four days since, while the rest of my collection hung out on winders. Now it's time to give the Speedy a break, enter the Diapal...

    It will never replace the historical value of the Speedy but it certainly is a handsome piece, stunning comes to mind. It's hard to imagine I purchased it to be a daily beater. Beaters don't get much better. :)

    Just a question Tim,

    Since you are living way up north, has that beauty of a Sinn Arktis never been on your wishlist?
    You could act like a polar bear,:-D and swim in Arctic waters with it, I believe they did design it especially for that purpose.

    Cheers,

    Daddel.
    Got a new watch, divers watch it is, had to drown the bastard to get it!

    Hi Daddell. I have been eyeing that Arktis. Wow, what a beautiful dial. I have been waiting for some great shots of the dial. All it will take is a couple of nice pics and that will probably put me over the edge. Apparently that dial is very hard to photograph. A couple have tried with nice results but I hear that it's really spectacular in person.

    That watch was made for N.E. Ontario man!!

    One problem with it though, I really don't like screw down pushers!!

    My U2 was designed for swimming in arctic water and this winter I will most likely be polar bear dipping at the Cochrane winter carnival. I wanted to do it last year but never got the chance to make it up.

    Polar Bear dipping is cool. You go into a sauna set up on the frozen lake and then come out and jump into the open hole in the ice with just your swim trunks on while hundred watch and laugh at the silliness of it all. Apparently it's awesome. I will definitely be wearing my U2 for that!!

    Do you guys wanna see pics of a 290 lb man in swim trunks jumping into a hole in the ice of a frozen lake with a U2 strapped on??? :-D :-D I will do this for the forum as it will be done for my research and testing of my U2. I do this for you!! :-D

    How's that for dedication to the forum and it's members. I will jump into a frozen lake with swim trunks on just so I can see if my U2 is winter diving proof!!

    cheers,
    Tim

    I'm looking forward to that one:-D :-D :-D , should be a very interesting sight, and test.
    I sold my Arktis to my dad, it's indeed a beauty, and I pesonally love screw pushers.
    They make sure the pushers are well protected, and you can leave them unscrewed when you are diving, and need them, they don't affect the 300m waterproof capabilities of the Arktis.
    I only used mine to swim in a mountain lake in the south of Germany.
    The water was (for me) very very cold, did the watch no harm, but did more damage to my private parts:-X :-X .
    Be carefull when you do the dipping, I hope you have a strong ticker.

    Cheers,

    Daddel.

    PS, this is the best I could find for you.

    Wow, that is a beauty. Thanks for the pic.

    Yeah, I think my ole ticker can handle it but just to be sure, I will go for testing this winter before I go. Think I'll get a shirt made up with some like "Unofficial U2 winter testing team" and under it "Watchuseek International Sinn Forum" and have some pics taken for the forum.

    hehe.
