Re: Coming in 2020. Omega 007 Watch

It looks so wrong with aged lume. I’m still a fan of the style but if I was going to get another with skeleton hands it would be the original 2531.80 or a 2220.80.

Re: Hamilton's American Classic Spirit of Liberty watches

39mm on that bracelet would be tempting. The problem is I’ve never had a Hamilton bracelet that didn’t suck.

Re: Anyone buying the titanium square?

I really like G-Shock but the higher end ones just don’t feel like the finishing is there on the hands and dial. I had a MT-G that was around $900 and the hands and dial didn’t feel like anything special to a watch a 3rd of that. I don’t know how they did it with the metal squares and up but the dis...

Re: Anyone buying the titanium square?

Any human is going to die of oxygen toxicity before this watch fails. Looks fantastic, but I’m not paying GS money for a G-shock sorry I spent some time at Topper yesterday, and apparently (it was news to me), there is a $7600 G-Shock...

Not one of your choices, but I use Arlo and am very happy.
I have an Arlo for an extra camera and while the Ring doorbell is handy when someone rings the bell, the camera picks up all motion on my property which is nice.

Re: Nest Hello vs Ring Video Pro

Hardwiring is nice since you’ll never have to recharge the device. Unfortunately the house I’m in now had a wireless setup and any remaining wiring is hidden under the siding now. I’ve been using the Ring doorbell with two houses for going on 4 years now without a hiccup, just now I have to charge i...

Re: Anyone buying the titanium square?

Damn you guys, I came into this thinking the standard titanium was cool, price nuts, and that the dot matrix camo was weird. Now while I still like the standard titanium, I’m completely loving the camo. If I was back working yet I’d be working on picking one up.

Re: Anyone buying the titanium square?

That camo Ti square is so hot. And I strongly prefer a negative display on G Shocks. Probably sounds weird but while the positive display is more visible and I am wearing one now, the negative feels a bit more polished in this new variation while the positive feels a bit dorky. Love both though for...

Re: Anyone buying the titanium square?

I was contemplating reaching out to a few contacts and seeing what kind of deal I could get on the camo, till I paid attention and saw it has the reverse digital display. Makes it easy for me to pass and not worry about spending over a grand for a digital G. I hate the reverse displays. Sent from m...

That one interests me and owning 2 Fords I am familiar with their tech. I could see owning that one as a proper replacement for our Edge Sport.

Re: Musk’s “Blade Runner” truck

I still wonder if he is trolling us all. Either he is trolling us or he is going a little insane. Some say his end game is colonizing/mining Mars, given that his companies include fabricating life support systems, mining equipment, solar equipment, batteries, space ships, electric vehicles, etc.......

Wow, I didn’t know that about the ATV. Is this guy turning into the automotive equivalent of Kobold?

I wanted a dual motor for AWD to use year round when I ...

Re: Musk’s “Blade Runner” truck

His stunt pulling the F150 in 2wd either shows he doesn’t know how trucks actually work or Musk is a dishonest shitbag. The Cybertruck should still win in that case due to weight. Either way I was a big fan of Musk and Tesla, but fuck him now. He’ll never see a dime from me.

Re: Anyone buying the titanium square?

I was looking at the titanium camo version and ran across a killer deal. Had just sold a few vintage Seiko’s so had some funds in the PP account. Ended up picking it up and hopefully will have it this week. Got it about 25% off so should be an easy flip if I decide I don’t like it. I’ll post pictur...

Fortunately it is a prototype. Hopefully the finished product looks a little better.

Just don't see an electric pick up truck being powerful enough to pull a boat, or anything else of substantial size for that matter anytime soon. Plus that's just fugly.

Man that says a lot. It dwarfs the MM300 but looks comparable size wise to the NAFT. I guess I never realized how large the NAFT was. I guess I probably did wear the MM300 well after all.

996TT is a great buy these days. If you can find a relatively low mile example that has had the IMS bearing issue addressed, it’s a great deal and value.
