Re: Red Bar Denver GTG

Damn. Hot stuff!

It's fun to throw a AP Diver on bracelet in the side-by-side comparison of Royal Oaks (15202 and 15400). The watch gets proportionally bigger in all the ways you mention between the 15202 and 15400 also.

What's the crown tube/collar/whatever made of? I understand it's the color of steel, but is it steel?

Re: Thoughts on Vacheron Constantin Overseas?

Yeah, the tax thing is interesting. Haven't read the decision, but it was 5-4 and not strictly along party lines, either. If anyone is thinking about buying a watch online and wants to avoid sales tax, you'll probably want to do it sooner rather than later. ...or move to NH (the state Wu can't find...

Re: I really like this Zenith

Extreme Lab is definitely an option for sale (coincidentally almost listed it yesterday), and for less than a 3-hand Nautilus will cost you :).

Re: WRUW 20 June 18

Happy hump day! Very nice. Recent incoming? Sold the GMTc? Thanks - I've had this one for a while. This is the second time with this exact watch - it's a '94 and still keeps +4 a day and I don't believe it's ever been serviced. Also, it's nearly pristine; crazy :) I don't think it's '94 based on yo...

Re: Thoughts on Vacheron Constantin Overseas?

Given your preferences on watches, Eric, I think you'd like the wrist presence on the 15400.

Jeff's right about the sizing, but they do have half-links available for the bracelet.

I’ve been taking some time off from forums, watches and some other stuff, there’s no real reason for it but I was away racing for a couple of weeks and just focused on other things, then in the middle of the trip some things happened at home that reopened a business opportunity so I’ve been very bu...

Re: Thoughts on Vacheron Constantin Overseas?

Given the insane, speculation-driven pricing of Patek, amongst those three brands I'd go AP for sure. Get yourself a classic RO in the 15400 or 15202 first. My favorite in the RO lineup is the 26400, though it's probably slightly less versatile. VC doesn't do it for me except for some of their dress...

Re: Westworld?

The "drawn out" portion of it killed me for the first two episodes. I have the next few recorded, but haven't had the interest to watch yet. I'm sure I will finish it up at some point. I find the concept very interesting, I just wish I could watch it at 2x speed.

Re: Black Bay GMT, 58, S&G & Tudor 1926 First Impressions

I like the gold in the insert. It's pretty true to how some bezel numerals age and patina. Kinda visible here, especially when you compare the numerals against the SS of the bezel and case.
