Re: Watch taste maturation... has this happened to you?

Aside from my chronological age, I don't think "mature" relates to anything about me (according to my wife)! :lol:

In terms of watches, it's always been divers, and that's all I currently own, although I have been looking around at versions of pilot-type designs, but nothing yet certain.

Re: OK, admit it... which watch brand names can you just not get past?

Not a brand name, but "railmaster". Don't care how great or aesthetically pleasing it is, but couldn't possibly own one. "Hey, what's that watch you're wearing?" "It's a 'Seamaster', master of the sea!" "Coool!" "Hey, what's that watch you're wearing?" "It's a 'Railmaster', master of the railway" " ...

Re: New Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Co Axial

I like it, as well as several other new offerings from the brand, but just wish there was the option for a solid caseback - glass backs are a deal breaker for me.

Re: SMP crown issue

Thanks Terry, that's kind of what I wondering; whether how it is now is "normal" in that Omega has changed something in that part of the watch's operation.

SMP crown issue

I had my SMP serviced about a year ago, and everything seemed fine until about a month ago and it developed some condensation under the crystal. It had been in water, but I'm very careful about checking before it's submerged. Anyway, I unscrewed and pulled out the crown, popped it into a jar of rice...

Re: RIP Kawasaki KLR650

A great bike, although back in the day, my choice was a Suzuki DR 400 (before all the water-cooled types). I'd still have one now if I could, but they go for more than I paid new in 1981. When I raced enduro (on a Kawasaki) a friend of mine put a big four stroke (400cc I think) into a K motocross fr...

Sicario 2 not as good as the first one but still worth the watch. So, go and watch it.
Actually, I thought it was better than the first; the dialogue in the final scene was a little corny, but otherwise I thought it was great, and leaves it open for another.

Re: Anyone have a Ti Breitling Avenger Seawolf?

You could try contacting:

I've been to their shop several times and they usually have things in stock not listed on their website.

Good luck with your search.

Re: Omega goes full Kanye

Yep, strange direction the brand is going. The only current watch in their range I would buy is the diver chrono', but I imagine even that will eventually be "updated" with a glass back or some other bollocks.

Re: isofrane strap giveaway

Aah! Thanks guys; I've got other colours but all are older, and since the black is noticeably softer and more supple, thought they'd changed something. The other colours are a little stiff, actually, and can get a bit uncomfortable.
