Re: Seiko SBDC051 and SBDC061

I agree with the other posts, but would add this: the SBDC051/53 is a dress watch that is a thoroughly competent diver. Its shiny and a bit blingy in a way that most Seiko divers are not.

Got It Back - Second Time's a Charm

Sometimes life interferes with your plans, and that was the case with a really treasured watch I had. It was sold but not forgotten. Two years later, fortune has smiled on me and I found another similar one for sale. I am a sucker for any EZM1 - even the benighted BAPE version - but this is my grail...

Hot Tubs Again?

We've all read the stupid threads in WUS and elsewhere about whether their 1000M dive watch can safely be worn in the shower or a hot tub, etc. Having done those activities dozens of times with a host of different watches without a problem, I've always dismissed these naysayers as nut jobs. But I ha...

Re: Better Than Expected Beater

I like it - almost bought one but ended up with a traser instead on that deal. I like the fact that the ANU has a steel case; so tired of the plastic case pieces selling these days My feelings too. Hate the plastic. This watch is really solid, feels more like a poor mans U1 than anything I’ve previ...

Better Than Expected Beater

Took this in on a trade, and find myself unexpectedly impressed. This Luminox has an all steel case and bezel, black pvd coated, with the standard quartz movement. It is about 44mm, and feels very solid in the hand and on the wrist. The bezel action is smooth and precise 60 click with zero slack on ...

MKII and TOXICNATO??

Did Bill Yao just announce that MK II is promoting Slim Fat strap bars made by toxicnato? It is the perfect way to put a toxicnato on a gen 3 Paradive. And the bars sound great.

But seeing Bill and Terry in the same sentence is totally disorienting to me!

New To Me - Skin Diver by Helson

I wasn't looking to get one of these, but took it in on a partial trade. I've had Helsons before and felt they delivered good value for the price, but this Skin Diver is much nicer than I expected. The fit and finish is very good indeed. It has a solid feel to it, excellent lume, has a lovely domed ...

Can’t Decide About The Apple Watch - Try This

I like wearing a dive watch but I have come to appreciate that there are some positives connected with a smart watch. Just being able to text at work surreptitiously makes it valuable. The introduction of Apples Velcro loop strap solved the problem for me: 73B72CE9-57DB-41D3-B905-9780E718E906.jpeg E...

Re: 'rare' Domino's Rolex for auction

Sorry to sound like an old timer, but today's prices seem high only because of when you got into watches. I remember paying $3,000 for a 16613 and thinking it was crazy money to spend on a Rolex, since my steel sub was much cheaper. It was all those damned Wall St guys jumping on the submariner band...

Re: Where Can You Buy An SLA025?

The price doesn’t affect me that much. I remember when the original 6159 models were selling new for about $600 at a time when a Rolex Sub cost $450. The Rolex Sub now sells for twice as much as the Seiko.

New Dual Tone Dial Seiko Diver

Mistakenly thought this was limited to Gnomon, but it’s a general release from February by Seiko. While I’m not usually a fan of adding PADI to a dial just because 30 years ago it meant something, but I like this two tone dial from Seiko. The underlying watch is a great value in my opinion and is th...
