Re: Where to find vintage divers....

Re: Wtf Moser Frankenwatch

This is clearly a joke. Just look at the size of the crown hidden inside the CG and how close it is to the bezel - it looks completely unusable.

Re: Help needed with potential buyer

^^^^ This is why I am thinking that it might be better if the buyer paid as G&S instead of F&F. PayPal itself states that when using G&S the transaction is "Covered by PayPal Buyer and Seller Protection". That of course would not protect the buyer against someone using a stolen account but PayPal co...

Re: Total WUS Question but here it goes...

There is virtually no chance of damaging stainless steel with nail polish or nail polish remover. Nail polish is made of polymers and solvents. Can't hurt stainless steel with cellulose, and the solvents evaporate very quickly. The most effective solvent used in nail polish remover is acetone. Here ...

Re: Security & Parental Controls

Restricting access through the WiFi router works great as long as the kid's devices don't have mobile data and all phones and many tablets have 4G capabilities. Plus configuring the router is usually a lot of work and can be a PITA. A clunky solution: You can use the Restrictions feature on iPhone, ...

Re: New Samurai

Love the way the 51 turned out, I really like the gold hands. It kinda has a two tone look but not really because neither the bezel nor the crown are gold, thankfully IMO.

Re: Refurbished apple laptops

If you can get same generation laptop for half the price with the same warranty as a new one or at least some warranty, then it is a good deal. You can check warranty status online, if you know the serial number. If you want a laptop that won't piss you off with slow page load times, you need one wi...

Atomic Blonde Baby Driver Either one of those worth a watch? I know Charlize Theron is worth looking at for a couple hours, like Scarlett Johansson is, but Lucy was pretty bad even with her in it. I would say that she is, and I have not seen her like this before. I think the director watched some K...

Re: New Bulova Devil Diver

Is it just me, or has anyone else thought that the minute hand looks too stubby? Other than that, it is killer. I was thinking the same thing. Also those end links...they can't possibly fit that poorly in the real watch - unless this is some vintage reference? Other than that it is a good looking w...
