Default New Arrival and it is a Behemoth - TCM ! ...

Hey guys, I've been away for way too long! Rec'd a notice about the site in my email (which I rarely read) and checked ya all out again. Already 3 new posts! Where was I? Oh yeah... so this is my 4th TCM (Terra Cielo Mare - Earth, Sky & Sea). I obviously love the brand and this latest one is no exception. They are relatively an unknown brand (here in the US) and it is a shame! They are a wonderful brand that have excellent fit & finish. The straps are all handmade, beautiful boxes and presentation. Obviously Italian with Swiss ETA movements. Quality, all the way!

Okay, I keep getting lost, here is my latest, a mahooosive diver (please see user name). This one is the TCM Artiglio, which is good for 1000 meters (which is my usual minimum diving depth!). A beautiful bezel with really smooth motion, a HEV/HRV stem, ETA automatic movement, etc. This beast measures ~50mm +/- 1mm (depending on whether its across the case, bezel, or crown guard and comes in at a svelte 21.6mm thick with that thick domed sapphire crystal!! Not for the faint of heart. However it is Ti and 'only' comes in at 157g with the silicone/rubber or leather straps, which are quite comfortable. Okay, I'll get along with it and get to the pix...











I love this guy. In case your interested..., they are pretty hard to find.

You are very welcome I_Like_ em_BIG !

Ooh nice shot of the Four Horsemen there !

Love how all of these watches have that little extra flair, or personality
within them. Could be an accent color, or bold font, marker, or number,
or even eye-catching hands, and crowns ! ..Really are sensational !!!

Want to thank you for this terrific look sir. Keep on enjoying these !

Wow! Nice collection! I wish my wrists could handle such big watches. I love the dueling crowns, like AT said, too! Beautiful!

Congrats on your latest acquisition! It's nice to see a new and different proper sized watch on the forums! ; - )

But seriously, I've been so over tiny wrist watches (37,38,39,40) and to think they're making a comeback in the market disappoints me. This hardware is a breath of fresh air or steel..I guess?
