Re: SBDB029

I shot it last fall, it’s extremely good. Pretty thick though, but like many of Seiko’s bigger watches, it wears really really comfortably. The case is super well-designed.

Great pics btw
I mean, aren’t there already $200 custom buckles on Panaristi?

So I actually spoke to the owner of this one in particular and he’s a legit G-Shock collector. Obviously extremely well-heeled, but he’s certainly one of us.

I think what happened was, your photos were SO good that they jacked the original price of $55, up to $275!! :lol:

Matt, that's awesome that you grabbed one – looking forward to seeing these in the wild. The dial is really something else.

Took a wrist shot in the cockpit just after taking the image posted above ;)

I don't get it. No doubt the product is superior, but . . . is any of this worth it any more?
Superior demand for sure, but there are objectively better options out there, so as long as resale value isn't your ultimate goal. And if it is, why bother with watches at all?

Re: Don't buy your Rolex from Australia

Since it's been so hard to keep up with all the developments between TRF & Reddit (though that thread has now been closed) and some of the stuff Chris did before he closed all his social media & web accounts, this internet legend started a new IG documenting everything – makes it a lot easier to fol...

Chris took his YouTube account down, but not before some good samaritan downloaded and re-uploaded the now-infamous "how to spot a fake Rolex" video, which, let's be honest – has aged really nicely.

Re: Don't buy your Rolex from Australia

Kinda seems like he was running some sort of postal insurance fraud scheme too – all the lost watches and insurance claims. Looks like a fourth (fifth?) victim recounting a story over on the TRF thread right now.

Re: Pretty Funny Sales Post

Agree that the Uncle Seiko Tropics suck balls. Conversely, the new Tropic straps are extremely good, and the 20mm squeezes easily into 19. Soon as they give us 22mm, my life will be complete.

Re: Holy FAKE Omega Batman......Damn,,,,,,Impressive

Just for curiosity's sake, I bought what had to be a fake Seamaster 300 Spectre off eBay a few years back (the photos looked bang-on, but everything about the listing screamed 'run away'), knowing I had full purchase protection with PayPal. It showed up a few days later, looking very much like the S...
