Yeah. There are times when I’m about this far away /\ from just bailing out on mechanical watches.

Re: New Tudor Sub?

I wouldn’t mind seeing a BB or BB58 black dial/black bezel without the gilt. Yeah, I know, that turns it into a Sub wannabe, but I’d still like it.

This is the second I believe. Still better than The Rolling Stones, they’ve been doing their farewell tour since 1980.
Pretty sure Steel Wheelchairs was their farewell tour.

I tend to wear my no date's on weekends and vacation when I don't really care what day it is.
I’m thinking this. A no-date will be my retirement watch.

No date watches

Might be a strange question, but how do you guys who wear no-date watches cope? Especially those of you who transitioned from one with a date. I’m asking because I’ve always been a “must have a date” kinda guy,but there sure are some awesome no-date watches out there - Pams, Speedies, BB58, and so on.

Ok, I’m old. I don’t get how an aluminum wallet works for butt pocket carry. A leather wallet conforms to your butt, aluminum looks like it would just dig into your ass.

Re: WRUW 31 Jan 19

Best watch related thing that happened to me was this one going wonky before it got sold. Once it came back from service, I started wearing it and now it's pretty much my every single day watch.

Re: Starter straight razor?

A couple more thoughts on straight razors. It might be my Aspergers or just getting older, but I do appreciate routines that have a little bit of ritual and detail built into them. I find the sequence of steps involved in mug/brush/soap/ safety razor somewhat centering in the mornings. That said, wh...

Re: Starter straight razor?

I used a straight razor for a bit. It’s tough to get a hang of and takes time. I ended up using a safety razor. And I love it. It’s a merkur, I bought a pack of 100 Feather blades for about $20 on Amazon. The standard 3,5,12 blade razors are just a huge waste of money. That’s where I am. Merkur Fut...

Re: iPhone XR or XS/XSmax?

I’m gonna wait until I can handle them in person. For me it’s going to be how it feels in my hand and in my pocket. I’m coming from a 7, and I’m a front pocket kinda guy (mostly for the vibrations). I know I won’t go Max, so it’ll be either XR or XS. Screen and camera are both better than I’ll proba...

Re: 2019 Watch Goals

Ever since it came back from service, I’ve really grown attached to the Aquatimer, so I’m not that fired up about anything new. If I were to go looking though, I’m thinking a GMT, either Tudor or Grand Seiko.

Re: 2018 ins & outs

The Aquatimer came and almost went. I withdrew it due to its day wheel issue, got it fixed, now I’m glad it stayed. It’s really grown on me.

Andy, any particular reason the Skywalker came and left? I still have a soft spot for them.

IWC service in the UAE

Well, I dropped the Aquatimer chronic off two weeks ago. Very nice lady took it, did the order paperwork, gave me coffee, and told me it would be about 4-6 weeks. Got it back today, looks awesome, two year warranty. She gave me coffee and a little goodie bag with a leather travel case and some choco...

If you can't use the logical solution of a fourth hand to monitor the second time zone, at least use something like Alpina's rotating disc. This just looks like a second, poorly placed, date window.
Yeah, that. Looks a bit like it’s 25 o’clock on the 22nd.
