    No longer need these. Surprisingly easy to add a lens to that hard to read date. Glue has been opened and used to install a couple lenses, needle tip has not been used. There should be enough glue to mount all 9 of these lenses. Sizes are: 2 ea 5.5 x 4.5 2 ea 7.5 x 6.2 2 ea 6.0 round 5.5 round...

    Rolex Explorer II 216570, Polar Random Serial $7,500 shipped, CONUS ONLY No box, no papers. I prefer Paypal G&S (I'll cover the fees). Back in April, I picked this up from our pal FNFZ4 (Alfred) on a trade. I really had not planned on ever selling it. As such, I got rid of the box (sold...
  3. Rolex & Tudor
    I’m buying my first Rolex this week. I’m beyond excited. The guy I’m buying it from is selling a 2003 Sub date, and a Sea Dweller 2004, both full set & similarly priced, so that’s not too important. Basically, I prefer the lack of cyclops, I prefer the fact the SD is a better watch in technical...

    Bought new January 13, 2020 but I am forced to sell this special Casio Marlin because of the WPAC rule of 1 in 1 out. Since I have a watch incoming I must also sell one. This Marlin is special due to the added cyclops magnifier for the date and a tapered Stainless steel bracelet worth more than...

    I am selling a Rolex Sea-Dweller SD43 watch. This watch was purchased in August 2019 at a local Rolex dealer (Box and papers included). The addition of the cyclops and the red text make this a watershed model in the Sea-Dweller line. Microadjusting bracelet is insanely comfortable. I wore...

  8. Seiko
    This is more or less an obscure model in Seiko's range, and I haven't really seen any reviews on it so far, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Check out more photos and the review here: Pinoy Watch Fan: Seiko Superior SSA001 Flight Computer "Cyclops" in Blue TLDR: This is a pretty unique model in...

    The watch is an aramar arctic marine. It has a japanese miyota 9015 movement and a flat ar-coated sapphire crystal with a cyclops on it. I want to remove the cyclops but have heard stories of people cracking the crystal by using the lighter method. Also, I don't want to ruin the watertight seal...

The case is in very good condition; likely some very light business near the lugs due to strap changes. Has a...
  11. Steinhart
    Good morning everyone, after been lurking this forum for about a month I pulled the trigger on an Ocean 1 Black with ceramic bezel, my first Swiss Automatic. Since i opened the box I've been really caught by how well everything is made and I found proportions, materials and look to be perfect...

    Hello everybody and warm greetings from sunny West Yorkshire. I've been following WUS for a couple of years now, which I must say has been a most time consuming (and expensive) experience. Anyway, I've been changing straps and batteries on watches since I was about seven or eight years old. I've...

    I understand the reasoning behind having a cyclops (magnifying window) above the date window - to allow the user to see the small date more easily. However, I have two problems with them: 1) the date becomes almost impossible to read unless you look at it dead-straight-on; and 2) it is a...

    I bought a nice watch a while back, but I notice I don't wear it as often as I would if the date were better readable. I have seen many watches with a magnifying bubble over the date exactly for that reason, but as the shape of the watch case is a bit different (tonneau) I will have to resort...

    Hi guys, I have a Rolex Submariner 16610 (not the ceramic model, the previous one). I love the watch but I always disliked cyclops. What do you guys think about removing a cyclop from my sub? Is it blasphemy? Will people ask me if it's fake even more often? Would you do it? Thanks for your...
  19. Rolex & Tudor
    I've got two questions: 1. My watch has no cyclops on the crystal. Is is possible that the watch has had the crystal replaced by a non-cyclops version? Was there such thing as a non-cyclops Oyster Perpetual Date in the 50s? 2. Is there a way to find the exact year of manufacture for my watch...
  20. Dive watches
    My daily wear is a Rolex Submariner with date. It has the cyclops which makes it very easy to read the date. I also have a Lumtec which has a small date and no cyclops. I find it hard to read with my 46-year old eyes, and will not buy another unless I was to mod it and add a cyclops. What...
