Re: Diving....

I was curious how a watch like the Breitling Avenger Seawolf has a water resistance to an insane 10,000 feet? Does it not require a helium escape valve as well? All that WR and they put knobbly bits on top of the bezel so its as easy as possible for things to knock it off-setting. Seiko did the sam...

Re: Cutting up a Zulu - 10 min project

Did pretty well...though I think ToxicNATO's business is still pretty safe ;-)

Ideally watch lugs curve or angle down to be near as possible to level with the case back. Otherwise you have these issues and the thing perches precariously on the wrist and straps like NATO's just don't work.

Re: Star Wars Episode 9 Teaser Trailer

Exciting. Now to stay away from any geek commentary which will likely zap all the fun out of using science and logic. Totally agree. I just want to walk into the cinema with my popcorn and no real info about what happens in the movie so I can be surprised and thrilled with a couple hours of fun and...

Re: Bulova Devil Diver....

Nice looking re-edition, but my enthusiasm was dampened a little when I found out that it has a Miyota movement. I'd much rather own an original. Did you expect something else given that Citizen owns both Bulova and Miyota? Yes, I'm aware Citizen owns both Bulova and Miyotya. I had assumed that bot...

It can only be done to raise some sort of cache, which seems odd for a company with a rich history.
Sure but the company with the rich history and the company making these decisions have no real connection. They just bought the name.

Re: SLA033J1 aka modern 6105

GS is a worthy rival to Rolex. Probably better in objective quality if you ask me. But this “unregulated” and “unfinished” business in the non-GS line doesn’t make sense to me if you’re going to ask for equivalent money. Agreed. Though show me an unfinished GS movement? (the 8L in the MM300 was dec...

Re: Speaking of Bremont - Argonaut

It’s nice, but I just don’t get internal bezels on “diving” watches. Internal bezels work well when diving. What don't you like? Unscrewing and turning a crown to set the bezel, then having to screw it back down. Im assuming this is done right before jumping in the water. I don’t dive (hardly ever)...
