Re: [AMA] Ablogtowatch and Laco Fallout Edition watch

The Hoback fallout finish isn’t terrible. It’s not quite as prominent as the other examples, however.

The EVP at one of my old jobs had one of these. He was a douche.

Re: Why Gloves?

I get the white glove thing in some sales posts, even maybe the nitrile looking gloves sometimes, but I agree that these look like creeper gloves.

Is it my eyes or is the L2L actually shorter on the MM300?

Re: New MM300 (SLA021/SBDX023)

I see the sapphire and ceramic as upgrades and like the subtle differences compared to the 001/017. If they settle around $2250-$2300 new, I think it’s a reasonable increase. The last 017 I bought new was around $1950.

It’s still too thick, though :).

Re: Silver Watch Co. aka Manchester Watch Works

Huh. I had no idea Manchester Watch Works was the same as Silver Watch Co. I found it funny that Silver called out Ginault (from what I saw on WUS) for not being an accurate enough replication of the 5 digit Sub case. Crazy. I meet someone at WInd Up that measure the Ginault down the every last mil...

Re: Looking for the warmest beanie.

Regardless of material, the key is to get one that fits properly and fully covers the bottom of your ears. I’ve been “out” in ones that were too loose to do so and gotten wind burn on the lower half of my ears. Not only does it hurt, but it also looks ridiculous. Remember, there is no bad weather, o...

Re: Looking for the warmest beanie.

Anything made of Polartec Wind Pro or Power Stretch will do the job. Most outdoor brands will have beanies made of both. I find Wind Pro to be even a little too warm in high exertion activities, so it’s perfect for around town.

Re: A couple of new UTS LEs

I missed out on a blue dial recently and regret not jumping on it before it sold. Of these, I really like the anthracite. Orange doesn’t seem right for this watch IMO.
