Re: Ever sold a watch because of weight?

Yep. Sold a U1 and UX due to the size and weight, which is why I wear a T2 now. Really liked the UX and had it for several years but just couldn’t get past the heft.

If Sinn would only make a U1 in 40mm and in Ti that would rock...

Re: Rolex lost for 20 years recovered by geocacher - and it still works

Great story. I did this geocaching thing with my nephews (who were from out of town) and couldn’t believe all the sites located right in my neighborhood.

Anywhere between 40-42mm would rock for a U1 or a UX.

Welcome Dan.

I always get a chuckle and enjoy your email updates. One of these days I’ll own a OWC. The snowflakes are great.

Btw, another accountant/CPA here too.

Re: One of my Damasko's returns

You set it free and it returned to you...might be a sign.

Great looking watch, and looks amazing on that strap.

Re: 556i Blue

Excellent looking variant of the 556. Index dial, no date, blue, smaller case...checks off most of my boxes.

I like this vs. the H bracelet with the boring clasp. Are there any adjustment holes?

Re: I was a one watch guy for 3 months...what was I thinking?

If there was going to be one watch, a 42mm PO could certainly do it. I’ve come close to finding the “one” but have always found a good reason to keep the hunt going.

Speaking of IWC LPPs, I just tried one in at Tourneau. Wow. That’s a great watch too.

What's your most accurate mechanical watch for time keeping

My Omega Aqua Terra.

It has run at +1 second a day since it was bought.

The only watch I've never sold-going on approx a decade without being serviced either.

Go figure

Great pick up. The bracelet looks pretty darn sold-how do you find the fit of the bracelet?
