Re: WRUW - WEDNESDAY 10/21/20

Got the strap that came on the new LE pilot IWC released this week. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201021/bcb88cc090bc42152fec2efcb8fe9f82.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201021/47b50b12d947ac72f2d2b1afd2a70543.jpg I like that. Similar NATO came on my 3777-24, but it’s too thick. Way bet...

Re: PAM 2020

Looks like it's a special Paneristi.com edition, which explains the logo. That would have been much better on the back of the case. I don't see a crown guard. On the dial Oh that. I assume it's the site's logo :shrug: Does that site even still exist?? I wondered the same thing, so I checked out the...

Re: Rolex Sub Question

For what it’s worth I read on a few places that the old model actually seems to wear bigger, because of the lugs. [emoji2371] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro Agree with this based on pics. I wouldn’t opt for the new one if you want larger. The effect of slimming to lugs is a smaller watch ov...

Re: New Oris Movement 5 day PR and 10 Yr warranty

I guess more of form-over-function. If it works well, and has a long service interval, that's more interesting to me than what the movement looks like. I spend my time looking at the front of my watches much more than the back ;) You mean function over form. The only thing about that argument is th...

Re: New Oris Movement 5 day PR and 10 Yr warranty

Its kind of an ugly movement. Well, not exactly ugly, but boring. No, it is very ugly. And they’re definitely gonna put it in a watch with open caseback. Granted, the value proposition is in the practicality, so I can give them a pass. But practicality and luxury watches don’t really mix, so it’s a...

Pic from yesterday, but same. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201012/de6ed2e8ce53221839224f38a8147cc4.jpg This angle definitely highlights a bigger difference in lug width. Looks good.

Re: New Coffee Set-up

Burnt coffee is usually a great sign that the producer is using shit green beans. When you roast the beans, for a while the roasting brings out the flavors, past a certain point (around 11-12 mins) you start to lose the most volatile flavors and bring out the bitterness. From that point on, the mor...

Re: Biking: beginner tips?

Update: Ok so I finally got a new saddle as I have been riding on the Serfas RX thick gel padding. I did a lot of research and I decided on the Fizik Argo Tempo R3 in 160mm. I’ve been on 3 short rides in padded shorts from 5-10mi each as I can’t go much longer.... I’m super disappointed as I don’t ...
