Re: Rolex watch test

Very cool. I went down in a submersible when I worked for the Navy. We weren’t sponsored by Rolex so we attached styrofoam coffee cups to the outside. When we surfaced they were the size of a shot glass. Here were are right before we submerged: Hey rain_maker, you mean like this? Exactly! I have so...

Re: How do you guys delineate between an "Homage" vs. Copy/Ripoff?

Me, I'd only buy a homage if it was something unobtainable. Meaning its no longer made, and financially unobtainable, such as a MilSub. Personally I wouldn't buy a MM300 homage ... it's still being made and there are reasonably priced examples out there, so save up and go for the real deal. I do dra...

Re: Longines Heritage Skin Diver Review

I like it and might be a buyer if the L2L was say 50ish. 52 kills it for me, same as with the LLD.

Re: Upcoming Karlskrona Midnattssol 300m Diver

It seems like the lume color on the hands and the dial don't match. Is that the way it looks in person? good catch ... didnt notice this in the bottom pics but its more apparent in the top one. I'll have to go back and see what the pics of the orange dial look like. Will ping Todd to see what he sa...

Re: Rolex Sport model preowned pricing

Damn the prices on secondhand market for sub c and explorer 42mm etc have me thinking I may flip a few of mine, grab a nice profit and get into other pieces. I can't believe sub c are selling for 7000 to 7500 now. Seems only a year back they were in the 5's. May be selling time. Just not sure. Sent...

Re: Basel Releases 2018

I loved the LLD but the long lugs ended up driving me to sell it. I think this one will have the same issue. How were the holes placed? Closer to the case or at the very end of the long lugs? Too far out El Gapo ^this Not as bad as the Nomos Club but still a bit of a gap... https://d23x6d9cx8qezf.c...
