Corgeut and the Big Dick

Post by JAS1125 » January 26th 2021, 12:07pm

The Budget Watch group on Facebook can be very annoying at times....its a lot like Watch Geeks, with semi-goofy and idiotic comments and by and large, a huge knowledge gap. Although at times, it's worth it for some tips on items for sale.

Case in point: Richard LeGrand Atlanticus, which was on sale for the princely discounted price pf $110.

Detailed review here, in much more detail than I normally do, and it explains why the dial says RLG now :mrgreen:

Piss poor cell pics....I swapped out the leather "sailcloth" strap for a silicon rally with orange stitching, although the stock strap is nice and fit very well.

In between the lugs, the finishing is not as good as the rest of the case

Overall, well balanced for my skinny wrist and for the price, it was a bargain in my opinion

Oh, yeah, I also picked up a Corgeut field watch from the bay, for no other reason than the cool blue dial. 41mm case, 22mm strap, which I have since swapped out for a tan leather.

About the cost of a Timex Expedition Field Watch, but frankly much nicer and without the annoying loud tick

Thanks for looking

Nice pick ups. Corgeut makes a damned good watch for the $. Their Speedy homage is the shit. Bracelet sucks but works great on leather.

Looks pretty darned good for US$110. I don't mind the sailcloth strap, but it also works well on rubber IMO. Sapphire crystal? I am a bit confused by the pics of the Oceanicas in your review.
Non sapphire I believe.... Sorry for the confusion, the review link is not my personal review, just one that I thought was better than what I could have done

That looks really good. Nice that they're using the Miyota 90xx.
