This one confirm not SS, it's something like bead blast Aluminium. I have about 8 of this.

I think the only way is to replace the bracelet but the tone of new bracelet will not match my aging watch.....

YAH! It was the initial combination of the dial design and the velcro feel style strap that caught my eye when i bought this piece. Really fits the theme "western country side" well.

ALUMINIUM IRONY released 10yrs+ ago in 2001.

A little decorations of red hands, makes this piece looks more closer to RACING theme.

YCS411G- CADMOS WHITE

Post by Ed.YEO » 09 Jul 2013 10:32

IRONY Chrono released more than 12yrs! Can't remember got it when...more than 10yrs if not wrong.
Image

Zoom in can see the year of the release, dial doesn't look cheap! Luckily, the subdial doesn't like the others in the Aluminum series... couldn't work after more than 10yrs of ownership...
Image

Polished, and chromy surface of bracelet and case... a headache, a finger magnet...
Image
Image

Cyclops free crystal... good and clear view on time reading!

YCS438G BLUSTERY

Post by Ed.YEO » 10 Jul 2013 09:58

IRONY Chrono released more than 10yrs! Can't remember got it when...more than 9yrs if not wrong.
Image

Zoom in can see the year of the release, subdial doesn't look lack of details! Unfortunately due to the slightly darker tone, the subdial's lines gets easily ignored...
Image

Polished, and chromy surface of bracelet and case... a headache, a finger magnet...
Image
Image

Odd cyclops, odd position... always thought that a droplet of water not removed... duh...
Image

Surprisingly... there're lume applied on the well layout dial! But not so strong after more than 10yrs...

YCS412G- MESMERIC

Post by Ed.YEO » 11 Jul 2013 09:47

From the year printed on the dial, this model is definitely released more than 13yrs. However... i couldn't remember when did i get this, as i was very particular about the hands design...
Image

Satin and silky blue dial, with bluish subdial hands. Luckily, the subdials are chromy colored, offers better contrast in split timing telling.
Image

Polished, and chromy surface of bracelet and case... a headache, a finger magnet...
Image
Image

As with other IRONY Chronos... the crystal is plastic, and subjected to scratches...
