Re: GS Blue Snowflake SBGA407 Review

I like this a lot, but even at 40.2mm a dressy mostly dial watch is too big for me. At 38x11mm I’d probably sell something and buy this. I'm really hoping they come out with a 38mm Snowflake option at some point. They do currently offer a 38.5mm SBGZ001, but it's so wildly expensive that for most S...

Re: GS Blue Snowflake SBGA407 Review

Something about that case style just seems cheap to me. It's too close to their Presage line. Even that crown looks cheap. I guess I just like my GS with the more angular cases, with brushed and polished surfaces. I think an all-polished case can come off cheap to many people. If you could handle i...

Thanks for the great write up. It's a beautiful watch and I like the dial changes, but 41 is too big for me.
It is kind of amazing that with all the success the Snowflake's had, there's no 38mm version yet.

The PADI is very cool, but I'd take a STO any day. The dial is killer. I might choose the non-coated case version though.

Re: Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Ceramic & Titanium Review

I’m still waiting for a normal sized ceramic watch. I’m not sure why they’re all upsized. Omega clearly seems to think that people want unnecessary thickness. That seems to be what they (and many others) think. I think for a lot of less-informed buyers, thickness equates to toughness, so when you'r...

Re: GS SBGV243, SBGV245 & SBGV247 Review

Looks similar to the case on the Shogun. Yeah, I can kind of see it in the lugs. GS has made a variety of similar cases before as well, all anti-magnetic (at least off the top of my head). I really like it...I think it's my favorite GS "sporty" case. Here's an older antimagnetic GS which had a simi...
