Re: Bremont SuperMarine S500

Will be picking up this one without the day complication on it Tuesday brand new at my local watch store for $3600. They are doing a moving sale across the street in Orlando and I was actually saving for one but expecting to pay far more. Did not have time to run home for the cash in my safe Saturda...

Re: Timex's American Documents watches

I don't like dress watches but I might buy one for a gift depending on price to support American made products so they can eventually make one I like.

Re: LVMH donating 200 million Euro to Notre Dame

I will be the negative one. With 1800 churches vandalized in two years in that country I am having hard time believing this was just a accident. And agree with Rush when I saw that church on fire it was metaphor for on what it is happening in Europe and that donated money will just be a big waste in...

Re: Longines HydroConquest Ceramic

No problem with the lugs, actually like the overall case design. I am not usually a big fan of numbers on my dial but this one looks kinda nice and for a ceramic case design I really like, I think I can grow to really like the dial. And with something besides another 2824 movement but instead a modi...

Re: doxa's totally lost the plot

Clearly the brand was trying to make a statement at Basel with the gold T-Graph, but I'd argue that the statement is "we have no idea what we're doing anymore" or "how much is gold supposed to cost?" https://i.imgur.com/K5pf9a9l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/vTw9VSVl.jpg Easily the most baffling watch of...

Re: 2018 Chronos Magazine Sinn 103 ST C

Yeah but that watch is ugly This why I tend to steer away from chronos this piece just drives me crazy where nothing is uniform! The 3 and 9 are not on the dial. The 10, 8, 4 and 2 are cut off. And it looks like two huge bulging eyes staring right at me! This is how you do a chrono dial everything ...

Re: For Dive Watch Fans...

As many of you know, I'm a fan of the micro-brand 'The Detroit Watch Company.' The owner, Patrick Ayoub, sent me a picture of his new Dive Watch last night which is also a GMT. I don't have details yet, but as soon as I do I'll be sure to post them. Kurt http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j279/kurt4...
