Re: Karlskrona Hemlig Mil Series Dive Watch

I like it. Will there be a no date version? And is bezel aluminum or acrylic?

Re: Uncle Seiko Tropic Rubber Strap

I wear it on my NAFT STO (too lazy to type) and I love it. Little stiff at first but comes around.

Re: Venmo?

My son uses it at college, it’s very popular there—he and his roommates use it to pay each other for shared expenses. I’ve never heard of it being used as a PP-type service. I’d pass.

Re: Karlskrona Hemlig Mil Series Dive Watch

I actually quite like the rendering--and at that price point seems like a great deal. The sizing/dimensions sound about perfect. It's hard to tell from the rendering, but if the lug holes are as far out as the earlier Karlskrona's, it would be a pass for me; I don't wear NATO's very often. And I def...

Re: Resco

I had one of the originals with the Slava movement--it was a nightmare. Movement had to be replaced twice. Lume pip didn't line up with 12 and always bothered me a bit; bezel movement was pretty sloppy, too. They seemed like nice folks, but my c/s experience was not good. They originally wanted me t...

New MTB help

It kind of depends how much climbing you plan on doing. Out here we do a lot of technical riding (NH), but our climbs don't tend to be as long. Most riders here prefer the 1x systems for that reason. 2x's are nice to have when you have a lot of climbs, and the jumps between gears aren't as noticeabl...

Re: Maldives Diving info request

Granted it's been a while, but I stayed at the White Sands Resort in South Ari Atoll in 2004. I little bit further down, but the diving was great--one of the best shark dives I've ever done, along with Manta cleaning station (all seasonal, of course), and one whale shark encounter. Not sure what it ...

Re: Gunny Straps, are they always this bad?

The color is uneven, I'll give you that. However the dimensions are uniform as are the stitches. I think the rough edges were by design / choice of materials. I'd say the craftsman probably intended what you got. If it were 22mm I'd consider buying it off of you. I don't have anything that's 23 mm ...

Email him and he will take the strap back. He will make sure you're happy. I've got a bunch of his stuff. Did he not send you pics of the strap before they sent it? He usually does.

His stuff has been pretty solid in my experience, although that was years ago when I wore leather. He seems pretty responsive, have you tried to return it or get a different one made? Just got it in the mail today and was really disappointed. I'm going to write him tonight. From my post order conve...
