Re: Will skull for food? Calling Don

Well, at least it's a helluva lot cheaper than the Richard Mille skull watch.

Re: Rolex funny

Assuming Rolex hasn't completed the service and won't budge on the new extension, have your AD request that the watch be returned to you unserviced. Re-install the extension and send it back in. PITA, but has to be better than whatever Rolex will charge your for a new extension.

Re: Gift Idea for my 40th...

Don’t buy a thing but an experience. I’m turning 40 in May and I’m looking to go to Isla Guadalupe to dive with great whites with a couple of buddies. That sounds awesome. Don’t forget the first rule of diving with friends and sharks... If sharks start to get ornery, point them out to your friends ...

Re: Ahhhhh, screw it

Cool. The new Seiko Arnie looks nice if you can deal with the size (and odd crowns). And Hamilton makes a lot of quartz versions of their field and other watches.

Re: What Is Your First Purchase Of 2020?

@Jeff - please let me know what bracelet is that. Per a thread on WUS, it's bracelet part no. H605694101 - the endlinks are supposed to fit the khaki mechanical, and the bracelet is bead blasted to match the case. I think you have to call Hamilton's customer service and order it directly. Supposed ...

Re: What Is Your First Purchase Of 2020?

After selling my first, another Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical (black dial, green Nato). I recently found out that Hamilton carries a bracelet that will fit it, so I may order that.

Still thinking about the new Seiko Alpinist whenever it becomes widely available.

Very sad. Worth watching Rush: Time Stand Still if you have the time. 2016 documentary about their last tour and the decades long relationship the band had with each other and their fans.

Re: New “Ed White” Speedmaster

^^^I'd quibble with whether this is either a movement or a design upgrade from the modern Speedmaster, but I take the point regarding movements. Most people don't care as long as the watch looks good, keeps decent time, and is durable. Omega is really lucky they have the Speedmaster - the "first wat...

Couple of thoughts here.... - omega is giving purists what they want (albeit at a price) - omega is using this opportunity to upscale, and start to target the rolex Daytona. This has been their trend over the last few years and filling the gap in pricing the mid to low 10s where rolex use do sit (t...

If Rolex raises prices on unavailable watches, do they really cost more?
