Re: WRUW Friday =1st March '19=

Just picked the new blue Sinn 856. Will probably pick up the bracelet unless I can figure out a good strap combo. For now it’s on canvas.

Re: New Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss Warhawk collection

The PVD looks good in a hamilton-esq kinda way. I’m a fan of the clean- dial look, so overall I like them. Not sure about the prices but I’ll bet they are up there.

’16 BMW X3 vs. ‘18 RDX

I will say the following: I owned a brand new BMW and had so many issues with it under warranty I sued BMW North America, won and made them take it back and refund my money. I also have owned Acura TSX, TL, MDX.....all I ever did was put gas in them and routine maintenance. Not an issue in the bunc...

Re: ’16 BMW X3 vs. ‘18 RDX

Thanks for the input gents.

Oil change and routine maintenance is more expensive. The guy who runs my local shop says RDX (or lexus) all the way. Not sure if he repairs BMWs but Acura’s run hard and are relatively inexpensive to maintain.

’16 BMW X3 vs. ‘18 RDX

I’m in a pickle as I like them both. The RDX (advanced pkg) has under 5k miles. The BMW (MSport package,not the high end M) has 30k miles. Both have top of line functions. The BMW is a great/fun ride. The RDX is a practical ride and somewhat fun. RDX is more practical but the BMW is more fun to driv...

Re: Opinions-first car for new teen driver

I’m in the same situation. In PA kids get their provisional drivers license at 16.5 meaning they can drive themselves. Mine will be ready in December. My only real concern is safety, but I’d like his first car to be a bit fun too. I’m thinking a preowned Subaru Outback, Crosstrek or Forester. Somet...

Re: im getting bad thoughts on this Farer

These look great - I’m not a chrono guy but the GMT and manual wind versions really caught my eye. They cost more than I was expecting but the warranty is better too.

The British voice in the videos sounds like the voice on Headspace.

Those are some amazing watches and an excellent Clint Eastwood story to go along. The movie looks like another Eastwood masterpiece.

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...
