Re: Seaforth GMT tomorrow

$1200?

I've had 2 (non-GMT). They are nice, but not worthy of that much of a premium over the Halios price. I bet the latest buzz will die off, and they will come back down to around list in just a few weeks.

Re: Shogun vs Pelagos

I'll still side with the Shogun even though the movement lacks consistency. I'll probably get flamed for this but the Pelagos has never impressed me looks wise. Also betting if it didn't have the name Tudor on the dial others here may say/admit the same. I'm with you. I like the Pelagos in theory, ...

Re: Noise Cancelling Headphones

I almost went for a pair of Bose onPrime day, but I saw a number of reviews saying that the newer model isn't as sturdy as the prior one (25 vs 15). Has anybody here had both, and noticed this?

Nodus Retrospect

So, I have the white dialed Retrospect stuck in my head. I keep thinking of pulling the trigger, so I spent some time looking through Google images. The watch looks a little tall, so I'm wondering if folks here who have tried it could share their impressions on wearability. (For reference, a have a ...

Turtle # 6 incoming.
What are your criteria for counting turtles? SRPXXX models only, or inclusive of originals? I've got a herd, and this one is tempting me too. :oops:

Are there any modern super compressor watches? This thread has me scouring google for a proper compressor cased watch but all I can find is vintage Dan at OWC makes a supercompressor case. He was posting here a while back. He describes his models as "in spirit of" classic designs. Decide for yourse...

Re: New Oris Aquis Date Brown and Green

i like Oris overall but ALWAYS hate the lugs they so often use......it is whats kept me from owning one all these years. I was in the same camp. Then I tried one. It's a really great piece of kit, as long as you view it as a bracelet-only watch. How about rubber-strap only, too? I don't know about ...

Re: Jason Heaton Takes the new JLC Polaris Memovox Diving

Shouldn’t you be able to dive with a 200M rated watch? Yes. I can’t see how it could be rated 200m and then fail so easily. If their reason for saying it’s “not recommended for diving” because the crown could be pulled out in error, then they shouldn’t have rated it 200m or they should have given i...
