Always up for a bit of bubble...


6106 'Benrus Homage' by Shawn, with Bubble Boy and case-finishing by Jonathan RIP



And this 6306 Black Kanji mod.

The Bubble Boy and 6105 bezel give a really nice vintage edge to the cushion case of the 6306

That is a really interesting combo !

Lovely watch - the 6309 goes military!
Thanks very much. It's a bit of a beater but one thing I noticed was when I wore it for an extended time during vacation, the lume or what's left of it, darkened up some more. I'm ok with that but was wondering whether the crystal exacerbated the process?

I have noticed this with the old 6309 Lume - if you wear it in REALY bright sunlight for a few days it darkens, and then stick it back in the watch box for a few weeks and it goes back to creamy goodness once more!
The Bubble Boy could well act as a magnifying glass in this effect, but I have experienced the same in standard old 6309's both on the hands and the dial - just one of those 'extras' of wearing a vintage watch I guess!
