I prefer the LE, but I think I need one of either.

Re: New Maurice Lacroix....

This doesn't look much different than a watch I'd expect to see for $50 at Kohl's.

Re: “Vintage” Canvas strap question

I don't think it looks much/if any different from the ad. It's a turd, but I would've never sent the funds based on the ad's pics.

All these shenanigans are doing is make me want a precious metal sub more than a SS model.

David may get a lot of shit on this board, some of it rightfully so, but he does have the ability to make things incredibly easy if you are someone like me who doesn't care about the "AD experience" and doesn't particularly like to sell high-value (for me) pieces privately.

Govbergs trade values are hilarious....They always call me asking if i have anything to trade in and i always tell them they are crazy on their pricing.
It took every ounce of restraint to not send back a profanity laced reply when they sent me their offer/pre-paid shipping label.

Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

I got 20 mpg in my tuned 14 STI. Same engine. Did he also tell you he's throwing down 300 HP at the wheels? Someone brought up insurance - STI insurance is generally much less than WRX because they are more expensive, so the owners tend to be older/more mature and less likely to act like derelicts. ...

I have a 73 FJ40. Pics? I'll snap one this weekend. It is a turd that needs a ton of work, but the body is mostly original and untouched without a lot of rust. I plan to do a rear disc conversion (front already done), clutch work and some new wheels/tires in the coming month to make it street worth...

Re: Monta Basel releases just went hot!

Had anyone tried the Oceanking on an Isofrane? I dont' think so. Most of them use the stock rubber strap. And it is a really nice strap, so maybe that is why someone hasn't tried it yet. Nothing is more comfortable than an Isofrane, though. If I had a 20mm iso, I'd probably use it in lieu of the st...

Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

Tell her “a wrx is better than an affair”. Is the current wrx on the previous generation platform? I know the STI is. I believe it is. Either way, the styling of the rex and STI has diminished with every subsequent model. The sweet spot for that car was circa 2003. It has been down hill from there....

Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

My wife has a 14 runner and I have a 73 FJ40. We like our Yotas. She bought hers after her X1 was totaled by hail. The X1 was superior in most respects - better fuel economy, more fun to drive on pavement, leather, heated steering wheel/seats, new cost was less than the bimmer, but good god it was e...

Supposedly there's a smaller ceramic case PO. Is that correct? I didn't see it. There is https://media.fotki.com/2v2JBd3SWxAqZad.jpg Need to see it in person, but the proportions look terrible in the picture. It's like Omega forgot how to design a watch. At $10k, I guess it would've cut into profit...

Re: Monta Basel releases just went hot!

I am wearing it now and I purchased a blue Triumph yesterday.
I like the new Ocean King models. If I can pick one of the blue or Gilt versions, I'll flip mine. They look great.
