Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

Reply from Unimatic: "Unfortunately we are not able to retrofit the metal holder to the older models" I followed up and asked if I could just buy the part, but they basically just repeated the statement above. I would love to see the inside of the new ones, but no way am I buying one myself. thumbs ...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

It seems that Unimatic has made some adjustments in their manufacturing now: I wonder if the midcase has been altered or just a new metal movement holder? ..." Moreover, the new Modello Uno references take advantage of an improved internal case construction, specifically designed in order to fit the...

Re: Coming in 2020. Omega 007 Watch

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: Unimatic's U1-SP L.E.

How are these guys still around after the movement fiasco and handling? I wouldn't want to be a customer after that... Didn't this brand have a big issue with movement spacers or something like that in the recent past? There was no issue. Only Jake from Dagaz watches had an issue/compliant when ser...

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.

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)

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

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.
