Turdle™ on a GL831US. Great strap except for the fragrance. WTF is the point of scenting watch straps? :scratch:

Re: Pelton Nickel Silver

I agree, the look is interesting. I'm just surprised some watch maker would engrave "Made in the USA" on the case back given all the previous uproar on this topic. Why? He makes his own cases in Detroit. What’s the issue ? in-house manufactured cases, bezels, screws, crowns, and bracelets Not me - ...

Re: Pelton Nickel Silver

BTW- what is with the trend toward quick release spring bars in straps? I think this is the third or forth micro released with these type of bars. I think the thought is to try and appeal to non watch nerds like us and a lot of regular folk don’t want to or know how to remove a strap. At least that...

oh we still have to pay for comcast for internet. it is the only option we have here besides century link. i do have to say we dont' have a noise pollution problem like most homes due to lack of tv. it actually drives us crazy now when we go somewhere that does.

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. They are being recalled for repair, but I'm not certain how well Helson's brand reputation will survi...

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...
