Re: What do you drive???

Just picked up this beauty. AMG version. Very nice. It has mood lighting. Just as well because barely 3 hours in to ownership and some dopey f$#£€%÷&&$@¥#¥ crashed in to the back of me. Minor damage, insurance sorting but still..... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180623/98ebdb8fda8c06249837a347...

I have never understand that why someone would pay more just to say "I have it".
Yep. They will be hard to get for a few months and demand a premium, but by years end places will be stocked up.

Price is nuts. Especially for the strap model.

That one has actual case finishing. The new one looks like it was crudely 3D printed.

Re: New Seiko Lowercase Digital Fieldmaster

So everyone says this is made out of plastic. This says aluminum resin, which I've never heard of, but sounds better.[emoji4] I'm assuming it is a plastic resin / aluminum powder mix. This would give the appearance of metal and some of the durability, with an easier case forming process. It certain...

Re: New release by Helson. I don't quite get the point/

Am I crazy or is longines stacking up really well against Tudor in the price/quality/style department these days? Longines makes nice watches, but largely don't they use off the shelf ETA movements? Tudor is going all in-house and really stepping up their movement game with silicone balance spring,...

Re: New release by Helson. I don't quite get the point/

While I realize it is all a personal decision as to where your judgement lies on these "homages", I'm going with the hard pass on this one. I can't be disgusted with the MM300 copies and Tuna copies being so beloved on WUS and not lump this into the same category. The SM300 copy I feel is a differe...

Re: New release by Helson. I don't quite get the point/

Indeed a copy, but at least this watch (and the SM1000, and the SM300 now) have been extint for some decades. And it was a good quality copy, no 58 bezel clicks here, if you know what I mean. I do find some usefulness in that. Debatable, i know, but that marks the limits of a homage to me. Obviouly...

Re: New release by Helson. I don't quite get the point/

The whole situation is pretty funny actually. Helson continually rips off Swatch Group designs (Omega SM300, Ploprof, Longines Legend) and Swatch just keeps selling Helson ETA movements to put in these very watches. You would think they could at least cut off the movement supply, but they are probab...

Re: Won a hummer on ebay

Word of advice, dump it before it breaks. Getting these fixed are stupid expensive to say the least. I've heard that. It was serviced 5 years back and appears to be running well. Supposedly there is a guy about an hour from here that can work on them. The parts are hard to come by given that they h...

Won a hummer on ebay

Always wanted to try a tuning fork movement, and really like Omega's 1960's/early 70's diver designs. I won this watch on Ebay last week at a very good price, considered it was services 5 years ago and is in terrific condition. The perfectly smooth sweeping second hand (300 tics/second) and humming ...

Re: Erika's Black Ops MN Straps

Mine came yesterday. Very comfortable strap. Extremely secure and I love that the buckle position doesn't rub while typing. Only downside is that it is hard to secure the buckle while it is on the wrist, so you have to adjust it off wrist and slide it over your hand, but it is stretchy enough to wor...
