Re: Game console help

We've got all the consoles, and the only one we ever boot up is the switch. Our xbone has been unplugged for weeks and we didn't even realize it.

Switch all the way.

Re: Watch box/storage?

Thanks for these suggestions!

The Caddy Bay options seem particularly enticing, saw that they have a wood finished box as well which is probably what I'm going to go for. Although, that Etsy box is pretty cool as well.

Appreciate the help, fellas.

Watch box/storage?

I've finally come to terms with the fact that I need a larger watch box. I was rocking a 5 slot box for years, but that hasn't been enough space for quite some time now. So I'm looking around to get something with 12-15 slots...anyone got something that they'd recommend? I'd prefer to not drop a for...

Re: New Laptop/Tablet

I've got a Pixelbook now and I would highly recommend it. Since it runs Android apps, you have a lot more app potential than what the Microsoft store offers.

The Surface line is great and I've had three of them now. But they're definitely more work focused, less entertainment.

Congratulations, I love this one in all its color variations. Seens like it would make a great daily.....I personally love that its quartz....and not your average quartz. +/-10 spy on the movement?

Very comfortable. GS bracelets articulate nicely, and the watch is lightweight with a slim case and small dimensions all around.

I'll be curious to mess with straps on this one.

Those atypical strap sizes like 21 and 19 are so strange to me. I don't know why manufacturers don't just go 1mm up or down.

Quick & dirty measurement using calipers...looks like it's 19mm.

Are they 21mm? I haven't taken it off the bracelet yet. But looks like it might be 19mm spacing. Can't find any details on it online.

But the bracelet is so good I haven't messed with straps at all yet.

Re: Latest collection entry... Grand Seiko SBGN001

Operates as a "flyer" gmt. Local hour hand jumps. That's the way I like it. Did they have to sacrifice the date quick-set to make that happen? Yeah, you've gotta jump the hour hand fully around to change over the date. Fortunately, with it being quartz, you don't have to fuck with it too often.

Latest collection entry... Grand Seiko SBGN001

I posted this in the WRUW post the day I got this...but figured it deserved it's own thread. I've been craving another Grand Seiko for a while after selling my snowflake, but I wanted something less shiny. Unfortunately, Grand Seiko's tool watch lineup these days is pretty slim. I've always had a fa...

My only complaint so far is the compass crown moves by just looking at it. Ig could have been tighter.
Hah I noticed this as well, I went to wind the watch and somehow turned the compass bezel. It's a light turn.

Re: another Hodinkee collaboration: seiko alpinist

I got mine in today. I'll put up a more dedicated post with some quality photos and what not at some point this week. As for now, I'll say that it's exactly what you'd expect out of a mid-range Seiko. It's not mind-blowing, but the blue does look good. The stock strap is shit though, removed it imme...
