Not good at all.
At least he got a full refund, which is the best outcome when trying to get out of a shit sandwich.

Re: Omega's Seamaster Diver 300 Master Chronograph

I feel like the blue/black SS versions are missing a pop of colour. Not bad but maybe not as nice as previous generations IMHO

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

Restricted availability has certainly pumped pricing - Where does it stop though? Luxury brands never ever want to drop their price points, I just wonder if they are setting themselves up for a big crash in a few years time as revenue slides the wrong way entirely. I remember thinking about consolid...

Re: Unimatic X Mihara Yasuhiro Modello Uno U1-MY Watch

They need to come out with some new models, not just fashion X variants.

They also need to stop pushing the boundaries of pricing especially without technical improvements (like better movements etc)

Re: Introduction & Advice needed

Big wrists; plenty of Seiko and Citizens in larger sizes, or stretch the budget to an Oris diver.
Quality over quantity for sure.

I'm interested. I like the bronze bezel version actually.
Hopefully street price will be good on these.

Re: Watch caseback remover

squishy ball, or some tape rolled in a ball (sticky side out) is very effective for screwbacks.
A small case knife or pry tool like the yellow one above is good for snap on casebacks.

Maybe get a little bit of gasket grease for when you put the caseback/gasket back in.

Crafter blue for sure. I actually like how it uses the original clasp, as it kinda balances it out a bit.

Iso used to give me a headache actually.

A cheap(er) alternative to this Breitling Chrono (which does look very nice) is the new Hamilton Intra-Matic.
That's the one I'm waiting to see.
Saw this on facebook today..

Fitment take 2: I think I can see how this works now, or at least speculate. The bottom of the top white spacer fits over the "factory" grey spacer like a shroud. It then narrows to fit closer to the movement. There is a bump on the side of the spacer that fits in a groove of the case to locate the ...

Just to summarize: this thread has lots of words, no pictures, and no boobies.

The caseback has the wrong...
