Re: Total WUS Question but here it goes...

Hey Eric, if you Google "nano coating watch" you'll find a company that is marketing the stuff for watch and jewellery applications. Apparently it goes on liquid and has to "cure". The dude emailed me but I won't post the info because I have no clue how it performs, how it will interact over time w...

Re: E.C. Andersson's Calypso

It is a very nice looking watch. Reminds me of some of the vintage OysterQuartz models. If you are going to go with this proprietary lug design though, you really need to offer it with a matching bracelet. https://d2ok2xewd7jb6a.cloudfront.net/timepieces/photos/cefad7abe2547101b4144553864ab5673b40bc...

Interesting. Not sure if it will kill the industry, but agree with the views on production costs.

This does not seem to be a part that can be easily created at a high level for a low price.
My first thought, then I think of the tech in a printed circuit board in a $15 toy.

Re: Transformational shift?

I don’t know..... it is still an Automatic Watch, one with more accuracy and less maintenance than a traditional Auto... and a super high beat. I am skeptical that this iron etching technology can be scaled to be affordable, but maybe.

Re: Seiko SBDC051/053

I loved the Vintage-esq nature of the 017 and the killer crystal, but the size of this one works better for larger folks like you and me. I keep saying it, but these really don't wear that large. I like smaller watches and find that it wears fine. L2L is a bit longer than an SKX, as Todd pointed ou...

Re: stamped vs machined – any tells?

Great info here Jacob! I do believe that the method of fabrication of the watch case is of little importance (forge vs cast vs machined) given that a wrist watch has no real major structural requirements (tensile, compressive, shear) other than resisting a little pressure and ensuring that the mater...

I agree. The 44mm size is measuring the case bulge, like with a Doxa. The bezel is probably around 42mm.

Re: New Quartz GS!

I like it. Twisted lugs used to be used by a number of brands, some predating Omega.

Really they are just exaggerated chamfers as Seiko has used on a number of watches over time.

Re: Speedy ?

I do a full wind on mine everyday. Pretty sure the mechanism is designed for it unless you are a gorilla.

Also, just a tip, they are easier to wind when holding upside down.

Re: Buying used SMP Question

Even if it is supposedly NOS, it has been sitting around for 10 years and needs a service. Unless a seller has proof of a recent service, via paperwork, assume it will need a service. The good news is that the 1120 movement is relatively easy to service and any reputable shop can do it. You don’t ne...
