Re: Time to test Omega warranty

Many jewelers and watch repair shops have a demagnetizing machine. You can call/email to ask. Last time I asked them to do it, they didn't even charge me. Takes just a few seconds.

Re: Damasko DC 80 - Player 2 has joined the game

Wasn't this movement mod (or a similar one) said to be "coming soon" from Damasko for a long time?

I remember looking at it around the time the L5100 was discontinued, but the movement and watch never materialized.

Re: Sonos?

Sonos is user friendly, works well, and easy to setup. However, for the sound you get, it's quite expensive. You can get a lot better sound for less money if you're willing to run wire. Sound bars don't give you the best sound (issues with stereo separation and quality of speakers, since they are sm...

Re: Saw Valarian last night

I don't get how it moved so fast between levels tho... Yeah, that part confused me also. The first time through I thought that there were actually two creatures, one on the upper level and one below. Maybe it jumps down the elevator shaft or something. Perhaps something that got cut during editing?

Agree.

Many times the movie creature disappoints.

Trailers look amazing though. The trailer visuals looked pretty. Weird(ish) aliens, space ships/stations, CGI effects ... seen them before. What the trailer didn't have was any kind of chemistry between the leads, or even believable actors for the leads. No drama. No excitement. No humor. I'm waiti...

Re: Black Breitling.. what are my options?

One of my favorite Breitlings (next to the Navitimer World GMT). Super Avenger Blacksteel Chronograph LE (~45mm): A bit of a necro-thread ... but that is the Skyland LE, not the Super Avenger. The Super Avenger is larger (48mm I think) and has some red hash marks around the minute chrono sub-dial.

Saw Valerian last night.....it was like Avatar meets Tron with a left turn at Star Wars illegitimate little brother's house. Great looking but certainly not great. At all.... Trailer did not look good, and casting of the leads was very perplexing. However, re Star Wars, the Valerian comics pre-date...

Re: POLL: Is it acceptable to wear a watch while you have it listed for sale?

I wouldn't do it as a seller (although I never sell anything anyway, so I guess that's moot). It gives you the ability to tell the buyer that the watch is in exactly the same condition as when the pics were taken. Otherwise, if the buyer complains about some mark supposedly not shown in the pics, yo...

Lots of variables here. If he bought it CPO, hard to say how the previous owner used/abused it. If it was ...

Re: Any M3 owners here?

^^^ M3 != regular 3-series I've used a e90 M3 for six years as a daily driver. No major issues at all. The naturally aspirated V8 avoids a lot of the problems of the turbo engines in the regular 3-series. I read that the M3 only shares about 30% of its parts with the regular 3-series.
