Don't get me wrong, I love the Land Rover, but after a long winter of diesel, it's great to get the Spider running again and appreciate a carbureted petrol engine for a change :-) Also fitted a new Aluminium radiator all the way from California. Remarkably, I seem to have connected everything back up again correctly first time round and have no leaks :-)
Can't think of much better value in a watch than this from Steinhart. Nice vintage look with modern sizing.
Quality feels great and it shares the same movement with plenty of others selling for many times more. It's a pretty good 'tip of the hat' to the Rolex Big Crown 6200 series. Wears great and currently gaining less that 5 seconds a day - Bargain :-)
I fancied a bit of a change with my 16800 and I do quite like the no cyclops look. So, after watching a few Youtube videos on how to do it, I took a small blowtorch to the cyclops - not for the faint-hearted :-) I think it looks pretty cool, especially with the aftermarket 'red-triangle' insert. Unfortunately the insert's a poor fit so I'm looking for another or I may just paint one of my spares. Good thing is these changes are all reversible :-)
