Re: Bremont SuperMarine S500

Received today, love it! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190702/f8889e959f921bf467f1216c8dc7a0c9.jpg I'm glad it found a great DWC home. It's a great watch and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. It saw a ton of diving, never missed a beat and still looks new. The Bremont case is superb. Hope ...

Re: Seriously...come on

Buying a working truck with good off-road ability is not that expensive...but for a fashion item like the Gladiator you pay the earth. There is a seemingly endless supply of aspirational buyers for fashionable products that hammers the price. Step outside of those narrow lines and things become reas...

Re: Engine Tuners

Is this for turbo cars? My understanding is normally aspirated engines can't really be made much more efficient with a remap, so if you make them more powerful they are really just sucking down more fuel.

Re: another Hodinkee collaboration: seiko alpinist

Maybe I've just never learned it properly, but I just can't seem to get past compass points on a watch with no compass... It just bugs the hell out of me for some reason, even though admittedly here they are not too obtrusive. All 3-handers work as a compass using the sun. The capacity to take a mo...

Re: Movie suggestions!!

New Star Trek is fantastic. Even better than the first JJ one. Gives me high hopes for Star Wars. This. What a stunning flick. Not only is it balls-to-the-wall action/sci-fi goodness, but their excellent sense for casting continues with the guy playing the main villain. No spoilers, but the BBC She...

What dive table is it referencing on the bezel? Whatever it is its even more conservative than PADI recreational tables. Strange :shrug:

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.
