Re: ARES Watch Company

Probably asked before, but I’m too lazy to look. Any chance of a Diver with date? The upcoming gmt has a date I saw that. I’m not as sure as I was on the GMT. Something about the hand length, dial, bezel relationship doesn’t quite work for me. I’m on the other side of the fence. I applaud Matt for ...

Does anyone know how the GMT functions in this one? Texted Matt but no response.
If it's a Ronda 515.24, it'll be jump GMT hand like a 2893.

That Spring Drive GMT is hot. Wonder what that’ll cost? Also hoping it isn’t 46mm.
They’re listing at over $5K.

Where would I find the renderings? Size, 10 year or so quartz movement, 41mm, I’m probably in.
Pretty much same size as Diver-1. Quartz. Check Instagram. ;-)

Re: SBDC051 or 061?

Nick,

I really appreciate the offer, but I’m still on back side of the world. Won’t be back in the US until early August. Shipping stuff here is silly expensive, unreliable, and the Customs guys are unreasonable.

SBDC051 or 061?

Can anyone do a compare/contrast between these two? Haven’t seen either in person and I’m curious what separates the two? I’m thinking one good midrange 6R Seiko diver would be a plus for me, but I can’t really decide. For what it’s worth, I’m a black dial bracelet kinda guy.

Thanks,
Henry

Re: GS SBGV243, SBGV245 & SBGV247 Review

I didn’t see the pricing. Seiko is out of control recently. I don’t know if I agree when we’re talking Grand Seiko. I would put the 9F movement family up against a Swiss auto for engineering, innovation, and build quality. There’s no question in my mind about the fit, finish, and casework. And I fi...

Re: Hmmmmmm..... Astron might be going mainstream

I’m curious about the case shape, myself. Looking at it head on, it almost looks like the case has sloped sides a la MM 300. Could be a more interesting case shape than one flat picture shows.

This on Seiko’s website. Not available until September, 41.4 mm, no ceramic bezel. Looks a bit GS almost. Read more here https://www.seikowatches.com/global-en/news/20190321-8

Re: Monta Atlas GMT

I don’t get what the big deal is with that hand. The watch is nice but a bit small. There is a lot I like but something is off, not sure what it is. I just don’t want to drop that much on it. I prefer their new No Date with red secondhand [emoji106] For me, it’s the lack of an outer turning/marked ...

Re: New Tudor Sub?

Tudor can tease all they want, and they do make some great watches. But, if they can't produce, what's the point? I still haven't seen a GMT in the flesh at any of the half dozen Rolex/Tudor dealers in the capital of one of the richest countries on Earth.
