Re: Worn & Wound story on ISO compliance isn't ISO compliant :-)

Of course, the Germans nail it, although I believe Sinn has their own standard.

Re: Worn & Wound story on ISO compliance isn't ISO compliant :-)

What about on the monster? What do you use as a visual clue for the 43, 47,28, 32, 17 minute marks. Your interpretation seems to only support my conclusion that it is a poorly written spec. One could easily argue that using the dial minute marks is sufficient to determine that minute mark your on t...

Re: New 2018 Seiko SPB077/079

I would bet money that these share a bezel insert with the 053/051 twins. This is 44mm, but the extra 2mm is likely all in the case bulge. Hands, chapter ring and bracelet are obviously shared and I would guess the dials are interchangeable based on the near identical date window.

Re: Who Owns Who -

It is wrong about Tudor being owned by Rolex. I believe they are both sister companies owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation.

Re: Hodinkee's "One-watch" article

Still Speedy for me, but I confess that I've never taken the Speedy to the beach (that's the PO's work, or any other beater I have at the moment. Agreed. My Speedy has been on my wrist for at least part of almost every day for well over a year. It never gets old as I enjoy switching it up between N...

Re: Speedy Tuesday Ultraman

Considering that a regular Speedy is 3400-3500 with your name on the card from TRF this 7100 dollar price becomes insane since I'm sure there's no discount to be had on this one. You could probably get those mods done for less than 1K :) That is what I was thinking. $7100 gets you two Speedy Pro's....

Re: Speedy Tuesday Ultraman

I wasn't gonna do it, as I like the original Speedy Tuesday watch more. But this thing has a DON bezel, and a true step dial, as well as the beveled subdials, and old-school Omega logo and Speedmaster font. Winner in my book. I don't understand why these don't come on bracelet, though. Regular Spee...

This one started at $4,300 and has bumped down to $3,675. Perhaps people aren’t so stupid after all.

Re: What do you drive???

Got talked into getting a 3-row a couple yrs back by my soon-to-be ex-wife. Not too many body on frame w/3rd row. Still wish I had bought a Taco like I wanted, but I wouldn't be able to stash my fishing poles against the headliner like I do with the Pathfinder https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180...

but you're right, unless they tell potential that it is supposed to rust/stabilize they are just asking for headaches

Re: NEREIDE GMT - not bad for 499 Euro

Interesting side note. It has a numbered plate that screws on the side which is intentionally made from Corten steel. Corten steel was popular starting in the 70's on buildings as it rusts rapidly and then the rust stabilizes into a rusty patina. Strange choice as this will be a rusty plate quickly ...
