Re: Maen Skymaster

Just a heads up I tried the previous Hudson, and flipped it almost immediately. The case and bracelet were fine for the price, but the lume on the hands was complete shit, and the watch did not look as good as the prototypes/pictures. I would definitely wait to see the finished version to be honest

Re: Seiko Prospex Diver SPB107 - Topper LE

Sorry guys I missed your questions back a couple months ago This watch is super cool. I've just tried on the regular version in Singapore, I was amazed by how well they wear. It may be 44mm but it wears a small 42mm because of the thin case. Two reasons why I didn't cave: 1- LTL is too long at 50mm ...

Re: SUV/Crossover Suggestions

Kias are today what Japanese cars were 30-15 years ago: cheap, reliable and criminally underrated. I go to korea almost every other month, they have a premium range (similar to Honda’s Acura etc) that is absolutely stellar: the moment they start importing those perception is going to change.

Can’t wait, the story of the awesome GT40!

I think he just means the whining. Hahaha Ah ok, funny how I always detested the cheerleaders on WUS, who would constantly whine about people criticizing seiko.

It looks just like the WUS thread now. That didn’t take long. So does this have to be a sort of image-only thread and no commentary? I’m ok with that, but those threads are boring as hell to me, with no commentary what’s the point? The difference between here and WUS is in the number and quality of...

Re: New Seiko Thread

Yeah, they’ve been happy to jack up the prices but did not really improve their offer on the GS side. The boards are plastered with “please seiko make a 40mm diver” since at least early 2010s, but they just keep cranking out huge turds instead. I would imagine if they do so it must be because they’r...

Re: New Seiko Thread

It is enormous. Like 46mm and 53mm LTL is I remember correctly.
On top of that nothing works: the end link fit would be ridiculous on a $200 watch, the hour markers are too small, the case shape doesn’t work on a diver in my opinion, the font on the bezel is weird.

Re: Seiko 6139 prices

Watches like the IWC 3227, 3228, 3706, 3536, and Mark XV have all been down or flat for the last couple of years. A 3227 at $3500 is an almost unbeatable value for a real Genta watch. I may need to look into IWC more, I know almost nothing about them. Definitely agree on the 114270 and the five dig...

Almost every watch that people want and doesn't generally suck is really expensive these days. The only exception that I can think of are 2500 POs and IWCs from before Richemont ran them into a wall.
