Re: Is non screw down crown a deal breaker for people?

I also have a preference for screw down, but no issues whatsoever with a non screw down watch.
Water resistance is a totally overblown concern.
I even did multiple dives with a $10 Casio and a $59 seiko (both 30m WR) just to prove a point (there may be a thread somewhere around here).

Re: Ebay Moron/Douchebag/F**k Tard

I wouldn’t sell anything on eBay, too scary.
I’d rather sell for less elsewhere.
I’m sorry for your experience.

Re: New Swiss/US movement ***Atelier Caliber 1***

Swatch people must be drunk. It seems like a very unprofessionally run company. They already decided to stop supplying ETA what, a couple years ago? Then backtracked in such spectacular fashion that you could find 2824 elabore grade in $300 micros lately. Now they are going back to "no supply" again?

It seems like everything watch related is getting shittier, all while getting more expensive.

Casio Pro Trek PRW-50 and PRW-60

“I check the watch often at night when I wake up for urination” :lol: These look super cool, all my trips in Tokyo I drooled looking at the 60 model, but can’t pay $460 for a g shock. Also not happy with the quick release straps, an obvious weakness point. Still, hopefully they go down in price as t...

Longines Big Eye vs. Farer Big Eye

I don’t think it’s close, the Longines looks much better, and it’s the much safer bet in terms of the brand being around in 20 years

Re: New SpringDrive MarineMaster 300

I always bitch about Seiko new pricing policy, but having seen it and handled it i have to say this “feels” like a 5k watch. everything is crisp and perfect. Try find some close up shots of the hands or dial and you’ll see what I mean. It’s in a completely different league compared to the old MM300,...

Re: New Seiko Thread

May be worth to point out that the extraordinary chrono movement is rated to a very tight +25/-15 spd tolerance.
If you want $4k for your chrono you need to have $4k attention to detail.

The market will decide, but if the Apocalypse Now reissue is an indication, it kinda disagrees with seiko.

Re: New Travel requirements for Europe...

The USA has had a similar thing in place for years now, called esta.
It’s a $15 tax to be paid every year.
Canada introduced it a couple years ago IIRC.

It’s just a quick and easy online form, I’m guessing it will be the same.

Re: New Seiko Thread

On Wus they say that pricing on the LE chrono should be around $4000.

Seiko people are smoking crack. I can't believe they're selling at these prices (the Apocalypse Now re issue is widely available pretty much across all Asia, so being a LE I guess it's not moving at all)

Re: This just in: Aquadive Bathysphere 100 GMT

Those look very cool, congrats Joe :cheers:

I’ve been close to getting one once, but another guy on WUS was faster than me.
Now I think it would not stick because of the LTL.

Re: INCOMING!!! Longines Czech Aviators "Tartarugone" WWII Watch.

Tartarugone means “big turtle” in Italian, which is a surprisingly fitting nickname for this beauty.

Still digging it. I used to say that a “two watch collection” for me would be the Speedy and a Seiko diver, but with the BB58... not so sure anymore. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190918/55ed4b7e16663f1ae962385d95fa5e3f.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk These look really cool.

I love marathon as a brand, but their watches seem to be either too big or too small (and all too tall).

Another JDM Only Sinn

It’s Leiji Matsumoto with an L, and he is awesome.
Aside from his most famous works, he collaborated with Daft Punk for the great videos of their great album Discovery (my favorite).
He is an absolute legend.

The watch, though, sucks balls :)

Re: New Seiko Thread

I think the target demographic for those is 15yo guys, these are cheap solars.
Now look at what they do with those gigantic GS with ceramic case... those are supposed to be fine watches.

Re: New Seiko Thread

The solar tunas are (in general) winners.
It seems like they keep nailing those, as opposed to 99% of the other watches.
