Re: Seaforth preorders tomorrow 1/18

I really enjoyed the one I had, but two things got me to flip it. The finishing on the bezel, and the noisy movement. I think those both got addressed in this version. Could be a real winner. Just got my pair yesterday and unfortunately the movt noise has not been resolved. These are very noisy. No...

Re: Opinions-first car for new teen driver

2006 Toyota Matrix. I got one that survived my son, and almost survived my daughter. It's only downfall was handling in the snow without snow tires.

Awesome! I've got one myself, also on NATO. Great grab-n-go, and also my favorite travel watch because of the independent hour hand.

Re: Timex's Navi Harbor and Ocean watches

Do these have a screw-down crown, or rotating bezel? I'm guessing not at this price, but pretty nice looking anyway. Couldn't find any info on that from the site Mike, but they are water resistant to 100 meters so guess they are. Or should be. :thumbsup: ..Cant be sure about the bezel rotating thou...

Has anyone done a white dial Mil Spec watch? Acrylic or sapphire done and white aluminum insert.

This would be something different and unique, IMO.

Looks good otherwise, but hoping the lug hole position be closer towards the case.

Yes, no date versions as well. The insert is aluminum. I like them both. A matte ceramic insert would make it perfect. While I certainly understand the allure of the ceramic insert, I want to keep the design specs more inline with the original style. Appreciate your input though! :thumbsup: I'm fai...

Re: Bernhardt font change!

^^^ Yup, that's it. If they were serious about the design symmetry, they could get a date wheel printed that would align at 4:00, but I'm guessing that is more than most brands want to invest.

Anywhere near 4:00 just looks wrong to me (poor symmetry), but I do like a 6:00 placement.
