Re: New Member introduction

Ok checking back here. Due to the rep watch buying - eat him alive! But I don’t have a problem with OP except he did it wrong. I don’t know how to do it right. He wants to come tell us about his new watch company, who cares? Let him. But I agree no fake watch people around here. All it takes is for ...

Re: Seiko Basel 2019

Wait a minute, the 6105 reissue costs 4.5 grand with an unregulated movement and they didn’t even bother making a strap that fucking fits the lug width?

Which watch do you feel will appreciate most in 10 years?

An investment is completely different than “a watch I may sell down the road and make a few bucks on”. Rolex is the best choice for this. Example- my -1983 matte dial 16800 I bought for 6k. Less than 4 years later now pushing 10k. Worst watch mistake I ever made was selling it. No i take that back. ...

Re: New Tudor Sub?

I am ok with this new Tudor sucking so bad. It actually sucks so badly in the worst way. It’s amazing that they released something that looks this shitty. Anyway. I’m ok with it because now I can just realize that the BB58 is my watch I’ll buy when I’m not broke. So I still have that to look forward...

Re: Sinn BaselWorld 2019

I want to be excited about the new arktis but I think it’s going to be way too big for what it is. The ezm 1.1 worked with a big case because of the big open dial. I’m not saying the arktis will look bad, but if I had one I would wish it was the OG size. And the prices... long gone are days when Si...

Re: Game console help

We have xbox one and switch.

My son goes back and forth depending on the games or what his cousin is getting him into.

I love the switch. Very cool machine. And playing the new MARIO kart and smash bros puts me in a happy place.

Re: Porsche Design or Orfina (Sinn 144) style L.5100 or ETA7750

In my experience the 5100 is just as reliable. And it’s the best way to ever use a chrono.

Thickness? That’s all on the watch maker. It’s about the same as the 7750.

Parts for it do suck. That is the only downfall.

Re: Porsche Design or Orfina (Sinn 144) style L.5100 or ETA7750

Why would anyone want a 7750 over A 5100? The 5100 is the ultimate chrono movement.
