Re: Eterna Super Kontiki 1973 Heritage on blowout at Ashford

So tempted. Don’t think it would beat out the MM300 or U1P in the rotation but I still might do it.

Re: Right out of the gate.....New Sub $20,000!

Buy what you like, but I could do a lot better watch-wise for that kind of money.

Re: Sinn U1 DE

I agree, the gold hand looks great. Add a domed crystal and make it no-date, and it would only be slightly less cool than the U1P.

New OPs

Here’s a nice side-by-side I found. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200831/aa197d67157f1ac80681ada024b3cb4e.jpg That's what all the fuss has been about?? Pretty much exactly the same watch - with some very subtle updates. Definitely subtle, but anyone who has owned a maxi case Rolex knows that t...

Re: New Submariner announcement Sept 1st?

Yawning over here. The best Rolexes were were made before 2010 in my opinion. The new ones are overpriced, fairly boring, and unobtainable anyway.

Re: The 372 - how good is it actually?

If you have the wrist for it, it's the best PAM. Everything about it is incredible (case, dial, and domed plexi).

I've heard a blue sub will be announced. And a new Sky Dweller. I'm not sure I care about Rolex anymore.

Re: the exit watch

16600 is my favorite watch ever. But for me, it has been the opposite of an exit watch. It was my entrance watch, the first nice watch I ever purchased, and the one which got me into this crazy hobby many years ago.

I'm strange I guess, but I don't look twice at the green, but the black will be mine. I'm not a green watch fan, though.

SBP151 Willard watch head weighs 83g without spring bars. Here's the watch on MM300 strap as promised. Love it! Killer combo! Love the MM300 strap. This watch is probably as close as Seiko has come to replicating one of their classic dive watch designs in a regular production piece. Tremendous. I k...

Re: New Seiko Thread

Pending real pictures of the new MM200 I think I finally found my next Seiko. It’s so close to the MM300 while being thinner, which was my only real gripe style wise of the MM300. I’ve been perfectly content with just the NAFT as my one Seiko diver. This may change it. Matt’s pictures do make that ...

Re: New Seiko Thread

This should work really well on an US waffle strap, which is an appropriate homage to the original 6105s.
