commented on What is a feature on a watch that almost always makes you look twice?

I do like an internal rotating bezel... For others in my collection I lean towards vintage influence, and I also gravitate towards 12 hour bezels (internal or regular)

commented on I remember seeing an ad for this as a kid

I had one in the late 1990s. It worked for what it was. As I recall, it only worked with CRTs and not notebooks (which were about the only LCD screens at the time)

Thanks

I know right? I was casually looking for a red dial watch, for no real reason, when I stumbled on this - and the dial looks even better in person

Thanks for checking in- I really appreciate the quality and attention to detail in your watches. I'm sure this won't be my last Vaer.

That's a shame they don't work great for you. I don't have any issues but I assume I wear mine further from my hand than you do? I haven't noticed anything sharp on my A5 - it's a very comfortable fit for me.

Hey Austen - yep... I'm really pleased with it. If I didn't already have more divers than I needed, I would also have one of your D5s. That being said... I am even more tempted by the D5 Malibu & the Anacapa now that I have my Atlas.

Healy Edition

I stumbled across this on State St in Chicago. I'm not in the market for a chronograph, but I really think this entire package was pretty sharp.
