Rolex 5513
Heliqos Seaforth

And now, I’ve started an American Made tool watch company - ARES - to build the precision timing instruments that I have always wanted and wished I was issued in my operational life. But more on that later.
:think:

Hmmmmm ... interested.

Trying to avoid binging and instead watch an episode a week. I find I miss the expectation/build up I get from waiting for the next episode when I binge...

Re: mattcanwin

Just last week I was down in Florida watching my granddaughter and met up with Chris Thursday night. Naturally, he brought along his U1-P and I was extremely impressed; what a great set of changes to the U1. Decided that night it was a must have. Almost bought Rob's, but wanted the bracelet; a pric...

Re: Panerai shit the bed- by Archie Luxury

There's 8 minutes of my life I'll never get back. I'll never understand the thinking behind an argument like the one made in this video. Don't treat the hobby like the stock market where tracking values becomes the primary focus. If you like a watch buy it to wear it and enjoy it. If it's 'market v...

Re: Worn & Wound story on ISO compliance isn't ISO compliant :-)

The spec is very poorly written. A minute scale does not necessarily imply that every minute must be marked. Reinforced by the fact that it only states that every five minutes be clearly marked. A track that is clearly marked every five minutes is still a minute track. They should hire someone who ...

Re: Hodinkee's "One-watch" article

I had a 16710 with all three bezels (black, pepsi, coke) and I wore it 3-4 times a week for about 3 years. It was a great watch ... versatile, thin, classic design/size, quick set hour. Only sold it to fund my 5513. Definitely a strong "one watch" candidate. A 2-liner Rolex Sub is another strong can...
