Re: Seiko PADI mod

Nice! I missed the original thread, but the aged Luke on these is nicely done with a light touch.

Seiko Prospex “Save the Ocean” SRPD09 Samurai & SRPD11 Turtle Review

Great review. The only thing I had to complain about with the Samurai was the strap. It’s very comfortable, surprisingly so, but I didn’t like the style. A ToxicNATO fixed that. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190511/b0f3b8f9a28542abddfc5d2ef229e17e.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190511/b...

Re: More Crazy Rolex AD Behavior

Rolex obviously doesn't like the grey market situation, but it seems they're still unsure about what they can do to stop it. Online and boutique only. That's what other manufacturers (eg. AP) seem to be doing. Omega is moving that way, too. I just got hip to the fact that you can buy online through...

Re: I guess Rolex isn't the only brand experiencing a pricing bubble

I know. If they go much higher, I Amy have to send mine in for service and sell it. I’d love to get a Smurf or RG YM but I just don’t have that kind of coin, but flipping the APRO and another piece could get me there.

Re: Whoa. Brandon. Sheen?

Roger I disagree with you. Brandon is a great guy and a true WIS like all of us. LOS for bronze is as old as bronze itself. I've done it on most of my bronze watches to get a certain look without waiting for a year to get there, it's like watching paint dry, lol Well, you guys know him and I don't....

Re: Whoa. Brandon. Sheen?

Just looked at the dude’s feed and saw he did the liver of sulfur fuming to artificially age a Bucherer Black Bay bronze. To me that’s like using bleach to fade an old Sub bezel to get a more vintage look.

Earn it, don’t burn it - I’m out.

Isn’t weed legal there?

Yeah, but still against company policy and I’m subject to random testing, so smoking chicken, pork, and brisket is a much better option for me.

Re: 2019 Aquadive model 50

My OCD is kicking in. I'm not sure why they did it but if you look at the inner scale the numbers 20 and 25 are following the pattern but 35 and 40 are the other way around. If you turn 35 and 40 around to be "the right way up" then would you not have 20 and 25 turned around too? It just looks off ...

Re: Suggestions for online Rolex sport watch dealers (gray)

Update: a local AD got in the TT blue sub yesterday. I happen to really like that watch but I know it can be divisive. Very tempted if it’s still there but I also think the stainless sub is still more versatile and iconic, especially as a first rolex. Would appreciate any thoughts. SS is more class...
