Re: Any regrets from Cord Cutters?

Its been 10 years for us. I don't even notice it. Until we travel somewhere and we are in some hotel and all we hear is freaking commercials. Pretty unbearable.

We did get netflixs about 3 years ago.

Re: Uncle Seiko Chocolate Bar strap

OK - that's weird. I could kinda see them being deleted from the NAFT straps versus the SPB053 straps due to price point differences, but I'd put the 063 as equivalent to the 053 so them being deleted on the 063 puts that theory to rest. Oh well, this isn't the first time Seiko has done something o...

As for Eddie's reputation, at least he doesn't have a Helson situation on his record. For those not following on WUS, Helson released an Omega PloProf 600 homage that apparently leaks like a sieve.

I couldn’t imagine being so fragile that having someone put my name and email address on a watch forum caused me to shit my pants.
I think the dude was a little sensitive. I do believe Eddie telling the guy it wasn't a warranty issue is part of the problem also.

Re: Uncle Seiko Chocolate Bar strap

Speaking of Seiko straps, I am pretty impressed with Seiko's new rubber (silicone?) blend and I appreciate how they include tubes in the spring bar holes for security. The Z 22 that came with my SRP777 doesn't have any tubes in the spring bar holes. Is it supposed to have them? :scratch: I bought i...

I’d like a black bezel better, but it looks great.
This is such a good, simple design that he could keep doing new colors and other small changes for years.

Re: Uncle Seiko Chocolate Bar strap

I ordered the Chocolate Bar during the pre-sale like I do with all of the Uncle's Straps. When I opened the package I noticed it was extremely shiny and very thin. I immediately rinsed it off and paper towels dry only to notice the finish changed to some parts shiny and others sort of dull. After c...

Re: Uncle Seiko Chocolate Bar strap

Looks good! It kinda reminds me of the stock rubber strap that comes with the SLA017 (which I really like except it is super long - perfect for a wet suit, not so good for daily wear). The long side on this one is 127mm The SLA017 stock rubber long side is 142mm for reference. that is a long strap
