Mike if you know where to get an original in excellent and serviced condition I would appreciate if you pointed me in that direction.
Thanks!
I bet these originals are going to get crazy with this releasing. They're a bit pricey now but reasonable in comparison.

Re: STEINHART WATCHES OCEAN 39 EXPLORER PLEXI - LIMITED EDITION 300PCS

I really like this and I get why people like the look of plexi so much, but I just don't want to be constantly polishing a crystal. I might really want this if they did offer a super dome sapphire. Kind of dumb they only rated this to 100m too. 200m would seem to be a selling point and still give it...

Re: Seiko STBR008 LE

I do like this look, but in my experience due to the regular SBBN015/017 Tuna 48mm is actually the perfect size for this type of case.

Re: Seiko 6105 Apocalypse Reissue LE

Anyone know what the MSRP of a 6105 was back in the day? I wonder what it would be today, adjusted for inflation. A quick search showed $175 in 1969 if that was accurate. The calculator I found said that would be just over $1200 today. So, not in SKX007 territory, but not "high end", either. Exactl...

Re: Seiko 6105 Apocalypse Reissue LE

it looks like they are using that same shit crown lock design. that is a disappointment. i am sure this will be like the 62mas re-edition and cost over 3k Maybe they’ll make a more affordable 6R version like the other new models more in line with the cost most of us would prefer to pay for a Seiko....

Re: Spring Made Premium Nato Strap

That design looks thick and clunky which is the opposite of the usual benefits of a NATO strap. Infinite fit is interesting though. Frankly the materials you use and premium hardware without adding bulk is a much better way to improve on a NATO. It's a type of strap that benefits greatly from proper...

It’s still going strong. I said screw it after what happened and now wear it working putting it through it’s paces. I probably was being overly cautious when I found the small cut. I’m amazed how unlike most rubber straps it really doesn’t show small scratches or scuffs otherwise. It’s finally becom...

Re: 2264 Running Slow

I've always loved the 2254/2264. I've passed up a couple of 2264s unfortunately. I remember being about to get brand new 2254s online for $1.6k when they were still available. I'm seriously kicking myself now for not following through.

Re: Timefactors retro polyurethane straps

I'd recommend trying Terry's straps. I meant to pick one up the last time around but when they were out of stock I picked up a used Isofrane instead, obviously for much more money. I'll likely get one soon anyway because I'd like to compare them and the reviews on Terry's strap have been stellar.

Re: JAPAN LIMITED EDITION SEIKO X BAPE DIVERS WATCH

I kind of like the Bape G-Shocks. Not enough to buy one, but I don't care for anything else I've seen labeled Bape. The only thing I really knew about it before this thread was the G-Shocks. I thought it was just some series they made, I didn't realize it was another company.

So, I'm not sure if the Z199 is for me. I like that it is thin, and tapers, but the end link fit doesn't impress me. It almost looks like it's only 21mm. Here it is, next to the stock Seiko bracelet.

Yeah that's a less than premium fit.
