Re: Total WUS Question but here it goes...

Enjoy them, they are only watches. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk While not directed at you specifically, I’ve never understood why people write things like this. What if the only way I’m able to enjoy my watch is by obsessing (I’m not) about how to not scratch the clasp? To each his own I obse...

Re: Start/Stop Systems

I hate stop start. I see many replaced starters being a thing from all the constant quick starts. Luckily the V8 F150 2017 and earlier doesn’t even have the feature.

Blows my mind that the average new car loan is nearly $32k.

It is a crazy amount, then I started pricing vehicles. :raised:
I still cringe at the price of my truck, but I’ll have it for many years. It’ll be worth it in the end but all vehicles have gotten ridiculous.

Oh ok, yeah those engines don’t work because they’re simply too small for the massive cars Americans drive.

Re: Cobra Replica

I love it. Personally if I ever get one it would stick with a small black motor under 350hp and 300tq. They get scary way to fast.

Re: Thinking about a new device

My computer finally died while I was in a hotel on business. That forced me to make a decision. I ended up getting another gen 2 iPad 10.5 256GB. I tried the gen 3 but I just couldn’t get used to no home screen and gestures as a 8 Plus user.

Let Hodinkee come up with a dial color that 95% of people like then sell it as an LE. Fuck Seiko. Fuck Hodinkee. Just when I thought Seiko couldn’t walk across the roo...

Isofrane for me. I liked it on the bracelet, but to me that watch was made for ISO.

That gives me bad ideas to get another.

I honestly liked the stock rubber on it and would consider an ISO too. The Crafter Blue is nice if you don’t mind using the bracelet clasp.

Re: Anyone get the S10?

I like it. Apparently the new update that comes with it is a massive upgrade in ease of use. I guess the S9 got the same update. My wife has an S9 and so far she doesn’t like the change.

I bet these originals are going to get crazy with this releasing. They're a bit pricey now but reasonable in comparison.

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...
