Re: Opinions-first car for new teen driver

I'm not sure it's even in the ballpark, no offense. Survival when you are 16 and riding a motorcycle relies on the ability to anticipate stupid car drivers actions and keeping things within your ability to react to the unexpected. That has nothing to do with being able to shift. I'm not offended. I...

Agree. Starting with a car with a manual transmission is the next best.

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

And the watch doesn't have a metal movement holder. So this might lead to fitment issues, you know the ones no one complained about for 2 years. :mrgreen: It's not the fact that is doesn't have a metal movement holder, it's the fact that it has two movement holders. In my estimation, this is a bodg...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

As a side note, the more I look at the photos, the more I think a custom spacer would have be somewhat more complex than a simple flat ring. If I am seeing things accurately, I think a proper spacer ring would require a lip to fit between the outer edge of the existing Seiko ring and the watch case...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

Matt, All movements have play once the spacer is removed. The spacer is there to make the movement fit the case snugly. Is this what it does when installed? There is a lot of companies who use a movement spacer to fit the watch. The Seiko movement has an integrated spacer. It's meant to fit snugly ...

That's the kind of jury-rigged mess I'd expect from a far-east vintage Seiko puppy mill, not an established micro.

Re: Seiko SBDC051 and SBDC061

I have the SBDC051. It's quite long lug-to-lug. That said, if you're comfortable with the Turdle or MM, you'll be fine with the '051, too. https://i.imgur.com/Glcwf3k.jpg https://i.imgur.com/kHH0kMQ.jpg The SBDC051 is only slightly heavier than the Turdle (case-only weight of 93 g vs. 91 g).

Re: "C" Type Balance issue

Sounds like it's a case of sloppy assembly. Everyone seems to think these movements are assembled by robots. That doesn't make sense. If they're using robots to assemble them, why are they doing it in Malaysia? Robots aren't paid, last I checked.

Re: SKX mod

How does it fit? I've read that the Crystaltimes crystals are often tough to install due the critical dimensions being slightly different than the Seiko crystals.

Re: New Shinola Monster Automatic Diver

They buy the movement in pieces and assemble it in Detroit. :scratch: It sounds like a "make work" project. Well, at least this "make work" project is in the private sector.

Nice! What do you use for metering?

I'm not much of a phone guy; I just use whatever they give me at work. Right now it's a 6s, and I don't think I'm due for an upgrade until April 2019.
