Re: New member

The welcome wagon strikes again. The mob mentality goes exponential here so quickly. The TWC could have been an honest mistake and the mention of an impending flip doesn’t make a FNG a scammer. You could have at least waited to see if he posted pics of his hot wife/gf. Now you’ll just have to used ...

Rolex passion report mocks up a bunch of bullshit and then posts it as if they have inside information.

If they luck onto being right, they use it as proof if their insider status.

This mock up is just a BB with a 79190 dial and handset.

Re: Interview with the new CEO of Panerai

"If you’re not doing four hours of sports every day, you don’t deserve a Submersible." That was a totally ridiculous statement. It's marketing by challenge/insult. The former CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch did something similar in an interview some years ago. He basically said, "if you're too smart (i....

Re: Badass shoe/boot link thread

I like rancourt moccs. I’ve had a few pairs and found them nicer and more comfortable than bean moccs (which cut up my heels). You have weird foot issues. Never tried Rancourt, but I've heard good things. I tried a couple pairs of Quoddy mocs back before they tripled their prices. The camp mocs loo...

So I read the whole article and I learned that his “strength” is watch design. Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t he just copy someone else designs for the most part? :scratch: If so, then my strength is also watch design... I'm seeing this as a backhanded compliment...

Re: MKii / Bill Yao on Gear Patrol [emoji848]

I don't get the whole "MKII build quality is head and shoulders above the rest" argument. I've owned an MKII watch. I've owned a Steinhart watch. Build quality/finishing were comparable. MKII isn't doing anything special compared to other homage companies in the same price range (or less). They just...

Re: Movie suggestions!!

Some tv I've been watching lately: True Detective Season 3 - outstanding. Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff are both great in it, and the mystery is intriguing. Highly recommended. The Passage - surprised at how much I like this one. It's a bit formulaic, but I think the acting is good. It probably h...

In all seriousness, if I could go really high end, it would most likely be some sort of AP or Patek, but the thought of a platinum Rolex Day Date is pretty appealing.

Re: If it wasn't for the makeup and theatrics would KISS......

I always looked at them as a novelty act, but they went all in on it, and apparently there's a lot of money in that.

As for good looking rock stars, I think you've got to give it to Jon Bon Jovi, both then and now.

I’d just wear what you have and enjoy for awhile. You’ve already got a nice collection. Plus, Marie Kondo runs the world right now, and she says to only keep things that spark joy. This is spot on advice and why I no longer wear clothes https://media.giphy.com/media/42BxkRdreM2ndlWDWb/giphy.gif

I'm confused about the movement discussion. The 38mm handwound Khaki Field uses the ETA 2801-2. Nothing new or special about it, and I've had zero problems with it.
