A blonde goes for a job interview. The interviewer decides to start with the basics. “So, Miss, can you tell us your age, please?” The blonde counts carefully on her fingers for about 30 seconds before replying, “Ehhhh … 22!” The interviewer tries another straightforward one to break the ice. “And c...

Re: MB&F's Horological Machine No. 9 Flow watches

Yes, it looks awesome but it would be probably a fantastic desk clock... :grin: :thumbsup: :excited: Gu...

Then she said, “Ethel, I’m glad...

Re: Ever sold a watch because of weight?

As long as it does not impact the comfort the weight is not an issue for me. I guess one has to wear a watch to learn and see, feel for himself if it works out or not.

Re: Seiko Sky Walker

Thank you for the kind words.

The case is a model called SARZ005, the dial is from another model, SRPC31, the hands are from the SRP41 (SPORK) and the seconds hand is military from MKII.

...but why does the '9' have to be so big?

Probably they thought it would fill up the empty space on the dial where there are no subdials... :shrug:

Re: Weiss Watch Co.'s latest Standard Issue Field Watch

Very nice looking, I like the seconds hand in that position better then the one at 9. 38 mm though is a little small for me. Price might be affordable but certainly not cheap.

It almost look like a pilot watch to me or I guess an in between. Either way I like the simple look. :thumbsup:
