Internaut commented on Not really “half links”on a GS bracelet ·

I can’t stress enough the value of micro adjustment for me.  I have a winter wrist, a summer wrist and a hottest day of all time wrist.  On my Christopher Ward bracelet this has proved invaluable.  If I buy a Seiko watch, it could either be on a strap or at least because someone like Strapcode makes an alternate bracelet.

Internaut commented on Late 1970s Qingdao Watch Factory Jinmao (Golden Anchor) brand ·

Tsingtao is actually an incorrect spelling these days.  It is named (and pronounced) per its city of origin.  The maker quite sensibly decided not to correct the spelling because Tsingtao is such an internationally recognised brand.  Nice beer.  Sold at a premium in the west; dirt cheap in China.

Nice watch.  One of the big problems with Chinese watches at the moment is finding original designs that are simply, proudly Chinese. So many of the watches on Ali Express are pretending to be something else.
