Buying an 20mm ISOfrane

I would get one of Terry’s magnums. They are basically the same (I suspect they’re made in the same factory) and cost a fraction. I’ve owned multiple iso and I have 3 of Terry’s magnums, and they are 99% similar, but the price is 1 to 3 (or 4?). Not saying this for homerism, get a magnum and save so...

Re: real-world experience of MM

ETA: The much cheaper MM200 is an excellent alternative and wears so much better for me. Not as nice a watch for sure, but then again the newer MM300’s are pushing $2.5k at this point (or at least last time I checked). I can confirm the above 100%. I don't have a MM200 only because I've too many wa...

Re: real-world experience of MM

I agree it works better on a strap.
I loved it on the isofrane or even on a leather strap

real-world experience of MM

I’ve owned the initial version of this watch three different times + it’s really well executed + the hands are among the most beautifully finished in any watch I’ve had. GS quality + the design works in my opinion, it looks great + the only 44mm watch I was ever comfortable wearing. It does wear sma...

Lockdown Survival - what are you doing?

WRT to fasting I personally never understood diets that have you go all-in on something. Sometime ago I remember the Atkins diet was à la mode. You lost some weight but you died of heart attack. Great I am still firmly in the camp of everything in moderation. The healthiest nations on the planet are...

Lockdown Survival - what are you doing?

When are you going to invest back in? When you try to time the market you have to be right twice. I would never go all-in in any way, there is way too much unpredictability. I thought markets weren't high in 2018. Had I sold everything I would have lost a shit ton of gains. What I did was sell noth...

Re: Lockdown Survival - what are you doing?

Everyone's risk tolerance is different. Per my money guy, if you're actively investing in a retirement or college 529 account, it's probably better to keep doing so. With the market value lower, the same amount of investment purchases more shares, so when the market rebounds, you'll end up making o...

Can we shut this thread down?
The alternative is to let people freely express their opinions (which I’m more than fine with, but doesn’t seem to be ok for everybody).

Haven’t changed for a while.
It hasn’t gained a minute in about 20 days.
I’m starting to time it now because it does seem super accurate.
Great great great, if you’ve never tried a Sinn, do it

We’re all victims of the 24 hour news cycle and its hyperbole. But no mention of the one outlet with ‘commentators’ saying Corona virus is a hoax?

I’m kinda hoping for a huge drop in prices too.
The incoming months are going to wipe out a LOT of potential buyers.
