Re: The Watch Steward elastic straps

Ill bump this old thread up. Ive been wearing mine for about a month. Overall its not up to par with the Erika's originals but its a decent strap on its own. I do like being able to have no material under the watch and find it pretty comfy, but its not quite as soft material wise as Erika's. I think...

Re: Citizen Promaster NY008-10L

Looks great. I kind of like how the thin font makes it disappear until you look a little closer.

Re: Quick release spring bars, be careful

The Barton Elite silicone have these, I just yank out the little quick change piece and switch to regular spring bars. The bands are super comfy.

Re: The Watch Steward elastic straps

Looks nice. I love erikas straps so I ordered one of these and I will compare the two when it arrives. I do wish the buckle was more subtle.

Re: Ever sold a watch because of weight?

I will add that the weight isn't nearly as big of a deal to me on a thin rubber strap vs the bracelet.

Re: Ever sold a watch because of weight?

I love my U1 but it certainly is heavy. And the way the caseback is domed so much it doesn't like I fit very flat on the wrist and is sort of top heavy. If it was flat I think it would wear its weight much better, who cares if it was thinner and only 200m rated or whatever instead of 1000m. Won't ev...

He says they will ship starting on Monday according to his instagram. So I'm assuming they're already made.

Re: New arrival - Sinn T2

How do you like the buckle / strap? The buckle was the only criticism I've read from other owners.

Congrats it's a great looking watch

Re: Need a new series to watch with the wife. Suggestions?

House of Cards is good.

If you like Breaking Bad you might like Better Call Saul.

Sneaky Pete is good, on Amazon. The Expnse is supposed to be good but I haven't seen it. It's Sci-fi, also on Amazon

True, but I'd argue that in a lot of ways, the bog standard 1200T is the best watch modern Doxa has ever made.
What makes you say that? Just curious, I've never had a Doxa.

Re: Titanium Dive Watches?

The Grand Seiko takes the cake for me. What an amazing watch. TItanium is such a great material I would like to see more watches made from it. The Sinn T2 looks great too and is nice and light. Another option is a Gshock MRG. Not really a dive watch though. Only if youre a big Gshock fan though they...

Re: Seiko SNE498 arrived

I like solar movements more and more. I want one of these. I would probably get the aftermarket dlc shroud. Does the plastic one look ok compared to a normal tuna?

Re: New Hamilton Khaki Field Reissue

I'm still happy with mine. Fake patina I think is cool but I'm in the minority there. Lume is weak sauce, but it's enough to read through the night but just barely.

I'd like to get the bracelet from the date version to try on it.

Re: New Hamilton Khaki Field Reissue

^ Looks great on leather!

Mine has been +3 sec per day. Power reserve was just under 50 hours from a full wind. Very happy with this one.
