I seriously need to buy a loupe!

Maybe pins are not a problem but lugs are! 

Besides I have possibly found a couple of flaws in the Black Bay Fifty Eight...

It's not rust, just an effect of the super macro photograph! Thanks, for looking and commenting.

Here I am!

It scares me so much how the holes on those beautiful, thin lugs are positioned. So close to the edges... Will they last the presumably very long time I (my successors?) use the watch? What if they are polished every once in a while?!

A loupe is nescesarry

If you are into watches. Two different lenses. ...  

Yes it is, thank you! [nt]

Don't bother - they don't improve the watch and they just depress the viewer!

Fun to collect in their own right, though. Cazalea ...  

Great collection you have there!

I totally agree with you, just sticking it out a little longer without any glass interfering! Cheers, Simone

There's a learning curve to strap changing

You’re just starting. Remember: Use tape around the lugs when changing straps Only do it under good lighting, on a clean desk/table, on a white clean cloth (so you can find any tiny part/screw) Use a proper tool for the job If you have lugs with holes, us... 

Hi René,

Thanks for your advice, it will be very helpful! Unfortunately for my watches, I have been changing straps all my life, using any kind of device, often in a rush, low light etc... The problem now is that I have definitively tired eyesight and need glasses...  

Ohhh, I’m sorry!

It seems that my advice came a little too late 😉 Anyway, I hope it helps a little. Regards. René

Never too late!

Great advice! Thanks again!

Yes, a bit!

It is safer underwater and makes "pendant" with the indices colours... This watch is lovely on a bright strap... and weight much less!!!

Oh! I’m glad you use it underwater!

It’s intended use. Wear it in good health. René

Thanks René [nt]
