Re: Anybody else pay watches via Bitcoins?

He could, but that could be a taxable event possibly? In Aus, Crypto is treated as a "capital asset" and any conversion of that into $$ or even other crypto is considered a capital gains event that has tax implications. If the guy just had a bit of BTC lying around (it has gone up in value a lot lat...

Re: Anybody else pay watches via Bitcoins?

An immutable ledger = not so good at "laundering money"..
Privacy coins sure, but not Bitcoin. Pretty much all exchanges are regulated in some form these days requiring KYC.

Re: Working From Home

I was working from home for around 5 months. I generally liked it because I am more naturally reclusive. I really struggled at first when I had to return back to the office, took a while to get back into the swing of things. Now I am doing a 50/50 split and I think the balance is good personally. I ...

Re: Requested Info Plus A Hell Of A Lot More

Use a quality screwdriver, hot water soak bracelet beforehand can help.

Re: MarineMaster 300 curved end rubber straps?

Personally I absolutely love the CB rubber on my MM300. Used to have just a regular Seiko clasp on it, but it fits me better, and is even more comfortable for me with the racheting clasp. You ought to give it a try. Same - I like the CB strap with the MM ratcheting clasp. I feel like it balances th...

Re: New Seiko Thread

Pending real pictures of the new MM200 I think I finally found my next Seiko. It’s so close to the MM300 while being thinner, which was my only real gripe style wise of the MM300. I’ve been perfectly content with just the NAFT as my one Seiko diver. This may change it. Matt’s pictures do make that ...

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...
