Re: Seikos needed for groomsmen’s gifts.

If it was me, I would probably buy a bunch of SKX007's and call it a day as they are really classic and inexpensive. Turtle would be another option but they cost more $$. Maybe also consider one of the new Solar Tuna's. Being quartz and actually accurate could be more practical for non WUS if you wa...

Re: Hamtun's Nanok

I find it just a little odd that the name sounds like "Hamilton" and the watches also look similar.

Re: Tudor BB58 comparison pics

Great photos Joe, I echo your sentiment. Here are a couple of pics I snapped a few months ago when I got the 58. My Speedy Pro is also a keeper, but has not found much wrist time since getting the Tudor. Thought it would be my "strap watch", but I have been enjoying the 58 on NATO's recently. The Sp...

Still have the iPhone 6+
The idea of carrying a dongle with me annoys the shit outta me. Seems like the older way was better in this instance.
Never used it either. The headphones that come with the phone work great for my conference calls at work and I use Bluetooth headphones st home.

Re: New version of the Timex Ironman

I like the nostalgia but a little ironic when my wife and all of her fellow Ironman friends now wear $800 Garmins. Assuming a Times has not been worn by an Ironman for a lot of years.

Re: Opinions-first car for new teen driver

There is tremendous value in a kid working and saving for their own “cool” car. Totally agree. My parents brought me to the bank and made me get a $3000 loan for my first car and looking back I’m glad they did. Started building credit. Learned how to get a loan. Worked hard to make the payments and...

Get him a civic or a gti. Fun, reliable and not douchy. Manual or GTFO. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Agreed, manual Civic Si or auto is perfect.

Re: Opinions-first car for new teen driver

What is your budget? How “used” are you talking? The A3 is actually pretty reliable these days. Basically a Golf under the skin and the modern VW/Audi 2.0T is fairly bulletproof. A4’s aren’t bad in recent years if well taken care of. As far as BMW 3 series, see if you can find a low mileage E90 BMW....

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

Fitment take 2: I think I can see how this works now, or at least speculate. The bottom of the top white spacer fits over the "factory" grey spacer like a shroud. It then narrows to fit closer to the movement. There is a bump on the side of the spacer that fits in a groove of the case to locate the...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

Nope - another owner here just posted their example of a different Unimatic model with the same cheap plastic spacer. The issue which caused the investigation is the spacer in the Jake video example was slightly compressed and deformed, causing interference with the rotor, making it unable to spin ...

It sucks, because I really like it. It is a very sought after model (I regularly get asked if I want to sell it), but I would actually feel like an asshole trying to sell it at this point.

I have an 051 if you are interested - not getting worn since getting the BB58 and have been too lazy to put up for sale. Wears somewhat big but flatter than the MM300 and a better bracelet. I like smaller watches but had no issues with it. Pics i took long ago for scale. My wrist is 7 1/4”. If you w...
