Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

Does anyone know if they went back to the harder glass? The screen scratches on my 8 suck and that’s never happened with previous iPhones. Looks to be the case with the X as well.

Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

I've been thinking I'm going to sell my Pro and pick up the Xs Max. I rarely keep the phone in my pocket anyway. For what I use it for the Xs Max would likely be a good dual purpose device for me. I was considering adding an iPad Mini4 as a smaller alternative to my Pro, but this XS max makes more ...

Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

I can't be the only one who thinks $1K for a phone is redonkulous It’s steep for sure. But considering how much people use their phones, it’s all relative I guess. Plus, most normal people think we’re crazy to spend any amount on a watch when a phone tells the time just fine! Yup, this is why I sta...

I agree. I don't think it's for me. $700 for the 8 was plenty.

I won't be. I got the 8 when it came out and while it works as intended and I haven't had any issues with it I wish I would have kept my SE.

Re: Seamaster Professional Diver 300M Review

I loved the original Bond SMP and it was the first watch I spent what I felt was pretty serious money for a watch. I want to love this one, but it just feels a bit off. For some reason the minute track stands out as the first thing I noticed and it seems a bit odd. I figure it's an odd touch if it s...

There is, but this one looks much closer to silver.

Might not be all bad if it actually had a GMT hand to go with that bezel. That alone is stupid.

Re: Crafter Blue Releases Shogun Strap

They are thick, but I've found them comfortable, especially the one for the MM. I did not like the one for the SKX, as I thought it overpowered the watch. Hopefully that won't be the case with the Shogun. The look was the perfect fit for the MM, I just found over time I would get uncomfortable wear...

Re: Crafter Blue Releases Shogun Strap

felt like a handcuff on the wrist. This is how the one on the MM, SKX, Sumo all felt for me I think the thickness of the strap did it. I thought it looked spectacular on the MM300 and at first felt comfortable, but wasn't great on a hot day. I'm one of those rare ones that preferred the MM300 on th...

The black does look good. I never applied it but someone blacked the on my Jaguar before I bought it and was peeling so I removed it.
