Re: Beware: Swiss Customs Targeting Baselworld 2019 Attendees

Definitely. I'm also not comfortable with hammering some watch dork by claiming his personal collection was imported for commercial use. However, thinking back to the "Wolf of Wall Street" movie, It would be a lot easier to smuggle five one million dollar Pateks than it would be to tape $5,000,000 c...

Re: Beware: Swiss Customs Targeting Baselworld 2019 Attendees

Every county should start hammering people who hand carry watches across borders. Some watches are a perfect way to illegally move money around the globe.

Re: Seiko Basel 2019

I hate that Seiko puts “Presage” on their Presage line. Not sure why, as I don’t particularly hate “Sea-Dweller” or “Seamaster”. I always think the way it’s been displayed is a bit clumsy. Me too. It's a really classy looking watch, shitted up by three lines of text in three different fonts. A Sub ...

Re: SLA033J1 aka modern 6105

OK, now I remember why I didn't buy that really nice looking first Seiko LE that Art/Hoppy/Ben had. A 19mm lug spacing SUCKS ASS if you need a short strap. There are like two off the shelf options in the world.

Re: SLA033J1 aka modern 6105

I really don't think $4000 is bad for a high quality watch in 2019. With that said, I seem to be one of the only people who doesn't like this watch. Sorry to say, but the case looks like a blob of shit sitting on your wrist with a watch dial stuck in it. I like Seiko. I'd pay $4000 for one. Just no...

Re: SLA033J1 aka modern 6105

Unfortunately this watch doesn't work for me aesthetically neither for Rolex money nor Turtle money. I was one of the "idiots" who paid for SLA017. The case is perhaps my favorite shape of any Seiko I've ever seen. But while it was great for what it was it didn't feel like a $3500 watch. The bezel ...

Why not just do as exhibition case backs with the PR on the back like with the manual SDs? Seiko has a clear affinity for sticking a bunc...

I think that's a lot better than the GMT. Their plain bezel watches don't do it for me.

Re: Baselworld 2019 - Breitling with 72 new watches

There is a white dial Superocean too. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190322/ed8e0fa5f8b111fc49c7ddafdc8f3d5d.jpg I think this blue stick-dial version could be interesting. Looks like titanium. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190322/f46218b6a167bd505c95dc65dde80ef2.jpg I like all those. I wou...

This is going so well. Seriously though as Matt and Zack have already asked, there are more micros than rats at a city dump. Everyone thinks they can order a 100 watches from China, call it something like Spine Cracker Deep Cavity and call themselves a watch company. Ironically, Spine Cracker Deep ...

yeah a botched up grand entrance that don't go down well, apologies, but would like to start afresh. And he should be able to. Who else is going to introduce you product for free.
