Re: Hodinkee will do anything for a buck

You didn't know that "techniques for photographing watches have evolved over the last few decades?" Where've you been? I can't take a wrist picture that doesn't make my watch look 150mm in diameter while simultaneously making my wrist look 2 inches in circumferences. I'm not sure I want to pay Ben ...

Re: New Seiko Thread

Is the new spring drive diver SNR029 available yet? Anyone know what the street price is going to be?

I think it looks great.

Re: Planned Fall Car Purchase On Hold Until Spring 2020 (or later)

have you seen the straight pipes youtube review of the telluride? they love it. I think that’s what we’ll get when the time comes to replace my wife’s old pathfinder The telluride isn’t the kind of car people change exhausts and intakes on.

I put an isofrane on the autavia last night. It doesn’t make sense - but I really like it.

Re: Oris's newest Diver's Sixty-Five Chronograph

Yes - I saw it and really like it. I agree that I would prefer the blue chronogragh all steel instead of the bronze bezel version. Hopefully the will roll out a few other regular production options eventually. I may pick one up if I can find it at around 2k. If I can't wait that long - I may just pi...

Re: Omega Service question

I’d tell them to send it back to you and then find someone else.

my 3570 is running about 10 or 15 seconds slow per day - stories like this is keeping me from sending it in for any service until absolutely necessary.

Re: Picked Up Another Haveston Strap

Thanks for the heads up on the single pass. I did not realize they had made that change. I much prefer a single pass strap because I can put the buckle where I want and the watch doesn't sit up so high.

I'll probably pick up one or two to try out now..

Nice. :thumbsup:


I can't believe there's a version with no minute marks on the sub-dial.

I like it a lot.

It didn't take the long to fix that minute mark mistake...

Maybe the no-minute mark versions will sought after collectable at some point

Re: Watch box/storage?

I have a pelican 1200 case that has been great. Plucked enough foam out to hold 6 watches perfectly.

I have a boy with special needs and he will ransack the house from time to time. I don't have to worry about the watches being destroyed in the pelican. They are locked tight in a cocoon of foam.

Re: Well this didn’t take long

I came close to buying one a couple years ago when you could find a nice used one for $5800.

I think I’m over Rolex now though.

Could just be that everything else I've seen the last couple of days has sucked so hard that this is a winner by comparison.
