Re: More new Seiko models coming

I’m sure that if that is lost price that they’ll be going for around $2,500.

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

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.

Like the new MM. Probably more than I want to spend.

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 would go for the Shogun if it was me. I do wish it had factory sapphire though.

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...

Third for this. Every once in a while it happens when I get lucky with pictures. The MM300 was one of them.

This looks pretty cool. The combination of the crystal and second hand look a bit vintage. Nice.

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

So what's the deal with the Xr that is coming out? I took it to be like the 5c version of the Xs, but I can't believe how much cheaper it is. I would have thought if anyone didn't want to spend the money on an Xs or Xs Max that the iPhone 8 Plus would still be an attractive option, but it's a simil...

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

I've still got an iphone 6. That was back when the new iphone was $199. I think there was a 2 year commitment, but I wasn't going anywhere. It has taken a few years for me to adjust to the new pricing - but I am may check out the Xr when its available. Maybe a used X. Yeah I paid outright for the n...

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...
