Re: I’m digging the new black alpinist...

Remove the wart and the watch looks good. However if the ONLY improvement from the 6r15 to the 6r35 is the extra 20 hour PR, then hell no it's not worth the extra $300. Just 20 more hours of inconsistent time keeping as far as I'm concerned. All Seikos are that way too. My NAFT is very accurate aft...

I live the green one but i think the bracelet doesn’t do the black kne justice. I’ll definitely grab one after the prices start coming down a bit
I prefer the black dial, but wouldn’t care for the bracelet. I’m sure this would be a great NATO watch. ISOfrane would look great too.

Re: New Tissot Seastar 1000 Powermatic 80 models

I feel like the old models with the full metal painted bezels were much more unique. Hell of a domed crystal too.

This thing is badass, but of course with all Frogmans they wear me. Aside from the metal squares my favorite G I’ve owned is still the Frogman.

Re: $2400

We don’t qualify either since we sold the mtn house last year and the profit is added to our adjusted gross income. Personally, I think the $1200 is the wrong approach and is not nearly enough to sustain people who’ve lost their jobs but still have mouths to feed and bills to pay, but are being tol...

Re: $2400

I’m amazed I got it. By the math from the sources I saw my income was going to drastically reduce it. Getting furloughed at the end of last year must have helped.

A version of the watch I was slow to come around to. I now prefer it to the SBBN015. Unfortunately I sold it before realizing this.

This. Isofrane is probably the most worn strap in my box, > 50% of the time.
I’ve been without one for awhile. Just recently remedied that one. Excellent strap.

Re: G Shock Square (5600) metal "mods"

I think these mods are cool. Some people at WUS get worked up over these as blasphemous since the parts are aftermarket and do have logos. While I’ve had a number of G-Shocks over the years I haven’t been much of a fan until the metal squares happened. I’ll always have at least one metal square G.

Re: real-world experience of MM

I should have kept mine. I got frustrated when it had movement issues and I didn’t want to deal with it after having issues with two Seikos before it. I should have gotten it fixed instead of selling it cheap.
