Speculation in other cases was that restaurant waitstaff were on the lookout and would e-notify their compatriots. As you state, it's hard to positively identify a brand marking from less than a foot or two.

Radial polish on a c-case and a date to boot! Please send expansion bands to me at PO Box 9000, Los Angeles, CA 90212.

I would advise against wearing the Core Seven Sins watch when planning to meet St. Peter at the gates.

If you can find a Duro with a white dial, get it. But fat chance, so try a MWR-200?

And kudos on choosing the best dial color.

OscarKlosoff commented on I bought this Hermes watch for £8 on ebay, I don't think the watch has any connection with the famous French luxury brand . I was going to polywatch the crystal then sell it but my wife loves it and has stolen it. ·

OscarKlosoff commented on How much taper do you prefer on your watch straps? ·

2-4mm. I didn't know it eclipsed this, but I prefer starting at 18mm and am not into wider belts.
