Re: Ever sold a watch because of weight?

Not weight for me, but yes to size (especially thickness). I really, really, liked my CREPAS Cayman, but it was just too thick for me to wear comfortably, especially with the domed case back. If they had made this watch with a 500 meter rating and 14mm thickness, I'd still own it. https://uniim-cach...

Re: Shogun vs Pelagos

I'm going to go the other way and vote for the Shogun, but I'm hedging my vote by saying the Seiko Shogun is probably a better watch to use while diving. I am not saying the Seiko is a better watch. Yes, the Pelagos has a better bracelet, but I don't wear a bracelet diving. I wear a rubber strap or ...

Re: Seaforth GMT tomorrow

My question (again, academic only) is, knowing the software isn't up to task, and knowing the situation on the original Seaforth release, why do it again? Chris, after the first crash Jason talked to his provider of his site if i recall correctly and they guaranteed him it wouldn't happen again. Th...

Re: Seaforth GMT tomorrow

I'm not in the E-comm business, but my assumption is those shopify-type platforms work fine for normal buying volumes. Situations such as this where thousands of people are trying to buy a small inventory are not normal and are likely outside the design parameters of the software. Heck, even Amazon ...

Re: Seaforth GMT tomorrow

It is highly unlikely Jason even looks at the watch before it gets shipped to the buyer. unless things have changed, i'm pretty sure he does QC them all before sending out. not "MKII reject 98.2% of everything that comes in so it takes 10 years to make a watch" QC, but nobody really does that kind ...

Re: Seaforth GMT tomorrow

If he really wanted to stop it he could take zero cost pre-orders and build watches in appropriately sized batches such as done by OWC. This would provide him some assurance when placing his orders with his suppliers that he wouldn't be over extended. That model, however, wouldn't drive multi-page ...

Re: Seaforth GMT tomorrow

I had one in my cart and, like you, lost it as soon as I went to PayPal. It wasn't a 4 minute hold. It was more like a four second hold. I honestly give zeros shits. It's a nice watch and I'm sure Jason is a nice guy, but ultimately it is just another micro that would've put me $900 further away fro...

The real mystery is: how do you have a pen-size knife sharpener in a drawer and not know about it?

Those little vanity plates on the side of the case seem to be all the rage these days. Yes, and I can't think of a single instance where the watch would not look better without them.

Re: Seiko SRPC61, 63, 65, 67, 68

Yes, that is correct too. I forgot about that "5" thing. I agree as well about the dive thing. I trust the water resistance of a 100m rated Seiko more than I do a the water resistance of a 1,000m rated micro. Why? Because I believe Seiko actually tests their watches to their rated depth. Plus, I've...
