Reminds of the Deepsea in that respect. The rehaut engraving is much more pronounced in photos, but a non issue in person.

Good point! A Smart Battery iPad Case would be ideal, especially if it worked with the Smart Keyboard. Double the life of my iPad and I’m all smiles.

May need one of these. Soon....

these are GODDAM HOT Z0Y8MB0jGZg It’s growing on me too. More so with a British accent. It definitely looks better in real photos than it did in initial press shots. I’ve been contemplating the blue dial on bracelet. I’m hoping for a modern version of the 2254 with sword hands. I think we’ll see it...

I agree. Make the damned phone 4mm thicker and give us a 5000-7000 mah battery to start with. This isn’t hard.

$129 + tax.

Alderwood Apple Store has them in stock, just arrived today so I’d move on it. I believe you can order online and specify “store pickup”.

Re: New iPhone battery case

Real question. Does the phone batteries usually not last more than one day? I put new batteries in my wife and daughter's phone and they now get a full day out of them. I use my phone quite a bit, but I always plug in. I prefer to know that I’m good for longer than I need, so this gives me peace of...

New iPhone battery case

Being one who lives by the “better to have it and not need it” philosophy, I just picked up the new Apple Battery Case for my iPhone Xs. For those who have used these on their 6/7 series phones, the “hump” is better integrated and the device feels more balanced in my hand. These new ones also suppor...

I was considering an older Sub, but if that ^ happens (preferably sans cyclops) I’ll buy it. Even if on the smaller 58 case.

Thanks fellas. It’s not just the tail, it’s the length of each piece. When I wore straps during my Panerai phase, I liked 140/85 or 135/90 even better. The buckle side needs to be at least 85 on most straps otherwise it doesn’t come close to centering. Good point, something I never worry/think abou...

Dude, it’s called a “straight razor” because it’s a single blade. It doesn’t have magic powers.

Re: Crafter blue or Everest for Black Bay?

Folks, Had a crafter blue for a marine master and thought it was awesome. Of course, it employed the MM ratcheting mechanism, so that was a plus. I’m looking for a quality curved end strap for my Black Bay - any recommendations? Anyone have one for sale? Thanks in advance! :cheers: I think Everest ...
