Re: Summer beater?

Even if I am a fatass, I usually have fairly active vacations with many possibilities to inflict pain to my watches. Scuba diving for example is a great way to ding your watch by hitting the cylinders while putting them on, scratching it on a rock, etc. I am completely unafraid to bring watches unde...

Re: Summer beater?

I’ll alternate between the SKX009 and the g-shock depending on how much abuse I predict they will take.
I also have an incoming that I’ll use for the good days when I know it’ll be “safe”

Apparently a re edition of that exact watch is the next Seiko luxury LE, in case you’re interested.

It’s too bad the Sumo looks cartoonishly gigantic on my wrist, because it’s a great looking watch.

Thanks for your kind words :cheers: My favorite combo for this one. Bracelet is very nice, but it just doesn't look quite right, even fully brushed. I agree, every time I saw that model on a bracelet, it looked like something was slightly off. It looks great on straps, and I really like the discreet...

Re: Sébastien Muller, owner of Brellum Watches

Welcome Sébastien, and congrats on your designs, they truly are classy and timeless. Two quick comments: I can understand those who find the new, color matching, date cool but unpractical: it’s almost invisible. I also personally don’t like the thickness, as I vastly prefer thin watches. Question: i...

Lol good to know. It seems that very typically the prices on there are very inflated but then sometimes you'll find someone who's actually at the real going pre-owned price.

Re: See what that extra money gets you

Really impressive, thanks for sharing!
It has reinforced my idea that anything above $5-8k is too far beyond what I need/want, but at least now I very clearly see the why behind some prices.
It kinda escaped me before.

Re: Wempe NYC appointments

They are great, I walked in many times and they were always welcoming. I am the kind of person who immediately says “I’m only looking around” so I don’t waste their time, but still they treated me very well regardless. One time, I walked in to have a bracelet sized (screw pins) for my GS, expecting ...

This is on the Rolex radar - RSC NY is requiring an original purchase receipt for warranty work with a non-USA stamped warranty card. I'm sure Dallas and BH aren't far behind. That's good.

Re: Kobold article on Time Zone

So what happened with Mk2 watches? I remember some of their Gilt ones looked nice but didn’t get the excitement and pricing over sub clones that didn’t look all that special. Now it has converted in a sort of Ponzi scheme. They basically collect payments, then deliver a few watches years later. Yea...
