Firemonkey, I’ve driven through Gallup more than a few times and would you believe it, there’s a lady down here in Oz from Ruidoso! Couldn’t too far from you I imagine

New G5600E

Walked by a deal I couldn’t refuse on a new G5600, it’s got tough solar and auto backlight.

I love the basic case and lines. Reminds me of the Casio my grandfather wore for ages.

Re: nth sub

I’ll give him this - he’s clearly listening and playing a straight bat on his replies here. The fact that he can give simple and straightforward answers makes me rethink the brand (and I do like this watch).

Thoughts on GW5000

I’m currently thinking of buying one from Seiya - any current or former owners want to weigh in? It’s expensive for a g shock quartz but has a ton of features. I’d appreciate some first hand views

Re: First G Shock - GA1000 4B

Thanks mate - I’ve been scouring the forums for good info on them and with the variety, I think a dozen is about a start on collecting these. So many cool models and they all seem to fit a niche. I’m looking for one of the g steel models next if this aviator G-Shock manages to survive the 7 day flip...

First G Shock - GA1000 4B

Okay, so am impulse purchase to cover travel and I couldn’t be happier - I dare say this isn’t my last GShock! Has a compass, back light, analog and digital displays - and here I am used to the Panerai base dial!

Are there any modern super compressor watches? This thread has me scouring google for a proper compressor cased watch but all I can find is vintage

Re: New release by Helson. I don't quite get the point/

Am I crazy or is longines stacking up really well against Tudor in the price/quality/style department these days? Longines makes nice watches, but largely don't they use off the shelf ETA movements? Tudor is going all in-house and really stepping up their movement game with silicone balance spring,...

Re: New release by Helson. I don't quite get the point/

While I realize it is all a personal decision as to where your judgement lies on these "homages", I'm going with the hard pass on this one. I can't be disgusted with the MM300 copies and Tuna copies being so beloved on WUS and not lump this into the same category. The SM300 copy I feel is a differe...

Re: Inbound - new manual wind

Where do I start. Opened up yesterday a package full of white dial Weiss standard issue with toxic NATO straps. I love the size and comfort. The dial shows an almost eggshell finish. This puppy was born to be on a toxic NATO, which is where it now sits on my wrist. Oddly, I like the signed crown and...
