Re: New Seiko Lowercase Digital Fieldmaster

Now that some of you guys have a little run time on these, what’s the consensus? Features, functions, is the alarm any better than G-Shock? Hell, is the watch any better than a G?

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.

Re: Ulysse Nardin 42mm Diver

To be fair, how I feel about the movement depends on how much work they ddid to it. The Omega 1120 was an ETA 2892, but they legitimately did a bunch of work on it. On the other hand, while I get calling the LE "Blue Shark" because it's blue and everyone likes sharks, did they have to print that imm...

Re: Mmm...mmm Radium

The New York Times story raises more questions than it answers. I don’t recall strontium being a radium decay product, rays don’t “leak out”, and the physical symptoms could all be attributed to being a naval officer in Hong Kong.

Interesting. I’m familiar with radium dial markers and hands, but this is about bezels. Were the Bakelite bezels supposed to be luminous?

Re: Suggestions for inexpensive dress watch

I see some great suggestions, have a couple comments (surprise) 1.

If cuff clearance is an issue, move your own damn buttons. A bosun that can’t s...

Re: For Dive Watch Fans...

OK, I've had my coffee and..... Why take the two worst things from a Seamaster, He crown and the scalloped bezel, and use them again on another watch? Clip the pointer off the hour hand and extend the minute hand some. Not a fan of the logo overload, ditch either the fleur de lis, or the 1701. Or bo...

Re: New Seiko model

Not picking on this model specifically, but just how many 200m dive watches does Seiko need to produce? Every possible variation except the one I want. What would be so hard about an SKX007 size with a 6R15? I mean, really. Yeah, I know. 20 years from now, they’ll mine the SKX as a nostalgic reissu...

Ball. Especially the deepquest Funny, I'd have thought their worst would be the "skin diver." "Whatcha wearing honey?" "Oh this? It's just my Ballskin-diver." :shock: That’s got to be the craziest one. I can’t believe they picked that name for it. At least they don’t market it as a ladies’ watch.

Re: Seiko SUN025 - Kinetic GMT

Battery changes on Seiko Kinetics are typically required every six months. They need to be sent to Seiko in Japan, there's only one technician who can work on them. He's at the Nu-gi Service Center and his name Nubi Nointro.

Sort of a niche product kinda thing, but Seiko has reduced the Astron Dual Time by a couple mm.

A visit to an AD in AD

So, I took the blonde out for a retail day at Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi. She went off to look at God knows what, and I cruised over to the Rolex/Tudor shop. I didn’t look at Rolex, so I can’t say whether the shortages/price gouging you guys are talking about in the US is going on here as well. On the Tu...

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...

8 doesn’t do dual sim. One phone that runs both Verizon and Etisalat would be a big deal for me.
