Re: Hodinkee's "One-watch" article

Sold on DWC?
Sounds like a WUS story to me! This crap seems like it gets worse each year. One reason why I've really slowed down on buying watches (hate selling them!).

Still love the look of these, wish they would fix their customer service bullshit.

Somebody buy one please so I can it up later for pennies on the dollar. :)

Re: Does anyone have the Halios Seaforth Pastel Blue?

I had one for a day. The dial has a nice texture. It's great that he didn't make it a gloss dial like most of the others. It's a nice light blue. The color is fun but can still be worn with most outfits without looking strange. How the bezel action? Heard it was merely "good." Bezel action is prett...

Re: Summer beater?

Guess I shouldn't have used the term "beater." I've lately been picking up an affordable watch (usually a micro with a colorful dial) in the Spring, selling it later in the year.

Like to keep around $500 or so so that if I scratch it up I don't take too big of a hit when I sell it.

Summer beater?

Missed the boat on this round of the Seaforth (and not paying $1500 for one 2nd hand), so curious what everyone is looking at for a Summer/beater watch this year?

Re: "What is your best price?"

You think selling a watch is a pain? Try selling a car. I've got a car for sale at the moment and every low-baller on the planet seems to have crawled out of the woodwork with a 'reasonable offer'. I almost came to an agreement with one buyer but he made the process so unpleasant that I finally tol...

Re: Karlskrona Midnattssol *** Revised Randerings ***

That looks pretty good! I personally would prefer the Date at 6 o'clock and make the indices a little slimmer (especially 12 o'clock), but think you've got a winner! Love the Doxa orange, but would love to see yellow as well. Making both dials? Or the orangeish-yellow on the upcoming Seaforth from H...

Re: Karlskrona Midnattssol Rendering

Personally think the steel bezel looks much better. Just need to change the hands, slim down the markers, lengthen the second hand.
