Re: OK, admit it... which watch brand names can you just not get past?

Not a brand name, but "railmaster". Don't care how great or aesthetically pleasing it is, but couldn't possibly own one. "Hey, what's that watch you're wearing?" "It's a 'Seamaster', master of the sea!" "Coool!" "Hey, what's that watch you're wearing?" "It's a 'Railmaster', master of the railway" "...

Re: New Thai LE Marinemaster Just Announced

This would be perfect if it had the original hands and the red was gone. Looks like a $200 Seiko with this combo if it wasn’t for how nicely made the MM300 line is.

Funny, I'd have thought their worst would be the "skin diver."

"Whatcha wearing honey?"

"Oh this? It's just my Ballskin-diver."

:shock:
That’s got to be the craziest one. I can’t believe they picked that name for it.

Re: New Shiznit color, crisp khaki

I like that a lot. Time for some new straps now that I’ve been using NATOs daily on the NAFT. Time to build my 22mm collection back up.

Re: Switched from IPhone X to 8 Plus after 11 months.

I only listen to podcasts and music through the lightning cable in my truck with CarPlay. I think I still prefer the home button so I’ll likely replace my 8 with an 8 Plus assuming that I can sell the iPad Pro. Edit - just heard back from Verizon that I wouldn’t get the extra $100 off an iPhone for ...

I honestly was thinking of getting an 8 Plus if I sell my iPad. I have a standard 8 now and prefer the home button.

Re: "C" Type Balance issue

I had a SARB035 with the 6r15 that ran about -40 a day. Drove me nuts. Nobody was able to regulate the thing. Off to a good home. On the other hand, my SARY057 with the 4r36 is rock solid and insanely accurate. I have had great luck with the 4r36's for sure. All have been great since I have learned...

Re: Seiko SBDC051 and SBDC061

I’m pretty sure these wear smaller than the Sumo, but I’ve never had these two models. I thought about getting one until I got the SRP777 with a sapphire crystal. It’s damn near perfect, the size is bang on for my wrist, and I’m not sure even if these wear similarly that they’d get similar wrist tim...
