Re: MM300 being discontinued

I’ve tried ordering one from both Chino and Gnomon within the past week and both contacted me afterwards saying it actually wasn’t in stock and they had no idea when they were getting a shipment. I guess this explains why.

Re: Am I crazy, I'm starting to like this more and more

I don’t mind the orange, but I don’t think it would be versatile enough (for me). For the beach or summertime, sure. Everything else not so much. I’d go blue if I was going to get an 8900.

I imagine there was immediate terror and sweating once you realized that you had paint on your watch :lol:.

Glad you were able to get it off.

First thought was Schaumburg - same family as Nauticfish...
Yep. I used to lust after a Schaumburg in the early days.
Is this that same case?
Sure looks like it, other than the crown guards.

Re: Seiko 6159 reissue!!!!

Normally i am a big Seko fanboy. but, after buying a SBDX009 limited Edition Landmaster i have problems with Seiko and Le´s. Why? The tube is threaded. Mailing for 3 weeks with Seiko JP and they just told me no parts available and no chance to repair it. That is the difference to a really big playe...

Re: Summer beater?

I really don't classify mine one way or another, so all of mine serve as equal opportunity watches. So from my SKX's up to my MM300 they have/will see beach/pool/office or whatever action. Interesting you say that. One of the things that’s told me a watch is for the SC is if I catch myself thinking...

Re: Summer beater?

I jut ordered another MM300 specifically for beach/water duty. Though really I won’t buy any watch unless I’m okay with bringing it in the water.

If I ever break down and buy a Rolex, this will be the one. Really nice piece.
:cheers: It’s a good one for sure. It’s a natural for NATO and probably about as “under the radar” as a Rolex could be.

Re: ND Sub retail

^ correct. US retail is 7500 plus tax. For now. Wonder where they price the stainless Sub Date, ND, SD43, DSSD, et al. after Basel updates? Can’t help but believe there’s an increase out there... The recent SS “shortage” seems to indicate the market will easily pay inflated prices. If I were Rolex,...

$7500 if you can find one. Resellers are moving them above retail no problem it seems. Buy it.

Re: NAFT

The NAFT refers to the Seiko reference SRPXXX cushion case reissue divers.

As in “the Seiko SRP777 is Not A Fucking Turtle since it was never in history called a turtle until some moron on a watch forum decided to name the reissue a ‘turtle’ diver“.
