Re: Seiko's new Prospex Street Series Divers

They're getting a lot of milage out of those hands!

I like the watch, but I'm not into solar or kinetic. I'd rather have a plain old battery-powered quartz.

Re: Watch taste maturation... has this happened to you?

I don't chase "vintage" anymore. I'd rather have something new-ish that runs right and keeps good time.

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

Personally, I would have preferred to see Unimatic machine a more robust movement spacer ring out of metal or Derlin. I think this would have been more secure than the provided ring, but I also realize they were likely highly budget constrained - potentially more than normal assuming my hypothesis ...

I've never been a fan of the V6 configuration, but Nissan builds a hell of a V6. Even the more pedestrian VQ series packs a punch and makes a nice sound.

Re: Online Mattress

I'll sleep when I'm dead.

I have some kind of natural latex foam mattress. I can't remember the brand, but I've been happy with it.

I like the Tempurpedic and its knock offs, but I can't handle the smell.

Re: ’16 BMW X3 vs. ‘18 RDX

If you decide on the BMW, be advised that the free maintenance probably isn't transferable, and an oil change is somewhere in the neighborhood of $170.

I love German cars, but they can be a bear to maintain and repair.

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...

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...

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?

I have the SBDC051. It's quite long lug-to-lug.
