Re: real-world experience of MM

I have an SBDX017. I did not expect to wear it on the bracelet much, but I actually like it more than I thought I would. I have never worn it on the original rubber strap, but really liked wearing on the Crafter Blue deployant rubber strap https://www.crafterblue.com/product-page/crafter-blue-rubber...

Re: Don't buy your Rolex from Australia

I have sold a few watches through the AWBSS Facebook group, including one to Nick Glynatsis actually. Fortunately I had never purchased any, so lucky I don't have any concerns there. I just finished reading through the Reddit thread. What a shit show and amazing all the serial dodgy behavior that is...

I think I like the regular Seamaster a lot more, but I like some elements. The titanium case is cool.
Probably a bit too much faux going on here.

Re: Strapcode Expandable Clasp Review

It is like the Doxa 5000t clasp. I bought one with the Crafter Blue MM300 strap, but I found that where the strap connects to the clasp on one side, it would pivot almost in a perpendicular way rather than feeding out of the clasp in a linear way, so I found it did not work at all for me with this s...

Re: Post your ridiculously priced Rolex finds

I feel lucky I have a Sub and GMT, but I could pretty much never buy again. I saw a 16710 for $21k AUD on an Aus watch f...

Re: CrafterBlue straps for Seiko Turtles? Yes [emoji106] or No[emoji107]

I love the CB on my MM300.
I can't comment on the buckle versions as the MM300 version uses the stock deployant clasp. Maybe that's why I like it so much as it is very fitted and adjusts easily.
