So I got this bad boy yesterday. Had some trouble sizing it as the pins were tighter than a bull's *** !!! With the help of my jeweler buddies, we got it done. The Ocean Reef is one Bad To The Bone time piece. Would love to see a three hand auto in this model. Check it out.

i like it -during the presentations i didnt really like it cause of the way the lugz seem to "square" the watch but it looks really good on the wrist!!

you're right - a 3 hand auto would be awesome in that style!!

That baby looks great Arnie! I'm glad it got sized!
Scott, that was the most difficult one I've dealt with. Took three of us. Two jeweler buddies and me!! An adventure!! Magster said she had similar issues so it's just a tight a** fit on some of the pins. Some were as easy as could be! Go figure!

Really diggin' that one Arnie. I'm holding out for the SS/ yellow dial. That would be a perfect replacement for the Reserve Speedy original that I traded recently. That bracelet is ill!

I know "TK". This is one of those pieces that the more you look at it up close and wear it, the more you like it. Not so with some, but this one? Yes. Definately yes!

I have the same one. Fortunately, you did not hear my Jeweler curse regarding the screws. Did succumb to a scratch in the process. Used a black Sharpie and rubbed it out- did the trick. Enjoy the time with it. I wear mine a few times a week.
