Re: WRUW 23 April 2019

Finally got a Doxa back in the rotation. The 1200 is a great size for me and has to be orange [emoji1][emoji106] https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190423/64e864eeca807adce43b5b1684696677.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190423/3576103d5e556f1c4d5eec6f97f507a9.jpg Looks great!

Re: Benrus's SeaChief

I prefer the original design for the case. That just looks too clunky for me.

Re: Macy’s Seiko Sale

BTW even the gold is $315. Oh and I found that PADI Kinetic GMT SUN065 at an outlet mall near St Paul. I was ready to pull the trigger for $440 until I tried it on. That’s one huge watch. It wears bigger than the Sumo and absolutely dwarfed the NAFT I was wearing at the time. Very nice looking watc...

And while you’re at it ask him if his prices are VAT inclusive and if he’ll be selling it VAT free for export?

They should have at least used the 9015 movement. Maybe they thought the slower beat movement wouldn't give it a more 'vintage' vibe?

Re: Longines HydroConquest Ceramic

To me the numbers, hour markers and hands are way out of proportion to each other and the lugs look weird. I agree with the comment above, I to want to love it but it’s not quite right. Having handled a SS hydroconquest and hated the bezel I’d never buy one so I hope this is better. I wonder if it ...

Re: Marathon watches

I thought that the bezel pip falling out was mostly the 2002 contract model, and the 2006 contract was okay. I haven't had any issues with my 2006. :shrug:

Re: Micro brand can source cheap damascus casing now

These are not microbrands. They are a factory that has branded watches they make. Can we say rip off? One is a straight Halios Puck copy and the other is an Oris 65 ripoff. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk If true, that sucks. But the second can't be an Oris ripoff - the listing says it's a Seiko...

The minute hand is too short. It should be lengthened so it goes halfway across the dial markers, like the SSW.

Interesting to see what the “downscale” version will look like.
Maybe we will luck out, and it will look like the slim case version.
