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...

An Asian made micro with a Seiko movement? Hope it's cheap, if it ships straight from china it'll probably be great

Re: Eternal Super Kontiki - worth it?

Tried one on in Switzerland – way bigger than I expected, and I expected it to be big. Awesome looking watch though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I've always been interested in these. For those who say the watch wears bigger than the specs suggest, how does it wear when compared to the MM300?...

So I finally handled one.

Not what I expected. It's a nice piece but not for me.

Sorely tempted. If I don't swing back to an MM300 I think this will be my next acquisition

Re: Eternal Super Kontiki - worth it?

I like 44 size watches, love Panerai and love the MM300. The turtle is about perfect dimensions wise for me and the eterna seems close.
