Re: Discoloration on Pelagos bezel?

That wouldn’t bother me in the least. Looks good to me, actually.

Re: 2021 - DEFENDER or BRONCO

If you're considering a 4 Runner, how about a Lexus GX460? Basically a tarted-up lux 4 Runner, and used ones can be had fairly cheap. They are comfy, and boring, and the steering is so vague it's like driving a waterbed. That said, I think they would make a great platform for a few basic mods, inclu...

Re: New “Ed White” Speedmaster

Regarding the 321, it's the romanticism of the movement that gets the Speedy nerds. It's the original, the one that powered the Speedmasters that did all that cool stuff back in the '60s (the moon landing, Ed White's space walk, Schirra's Sigma 7 trip, and so on). Plus a column wheel is so much cool...

Unless your wrist is tiny, I strongly recommend a 775 or 777.

Re: New “Ed White” Speedmaster

Very cool. I would've preferred a metal bezel and hesalite crystal, but lots of goodness in this one. Of course, I bet it's way too expensive (I'm guessing $12K) and if limited it will be extremely hard to get.

Re: ROLEX raises prices 3 to 4 percent.

I can’t afford modern Rolex anymore. It’s good that other than the 214270, I don’t really like any of them anyway.

Whose devices? I’m pretty sure I’m doing better than that with my MBP and iPhone unless the app is lying about the quality.

Re: Music Streaming - HighRes (Tidal) vs. Convenience (Spotify)

I like Amazon hi fi sound quality, but Spotify is so much more robust in terms of playlists and curated content. Also, it’s a lot snappier off wi fi. I’m not sure Tidal would be much better than Amazon. For now, I’m using both Spotify and Amazon.

Re: Movie suggestions!!

I don’t know. I saw Episode IX today, and I loved it. Fitting end to the series which originated with the movie I first saw in the theater, Episode IV, over 40 years ago. I am pretty sure many people would have panned Empire had it been released today.

Re: Budget audiophile gear recommendations

I have a sub-less budget system (Onkyo A-9110 amp, Schiit Modi3 DAC, and Elac Debut B6.2 speakers). Do you guys feel that a sub makes that much of a difference for general audio?

Re: 9 Reasons to Enjoy Sinn

I've owned a U1 SDR, a U1 Pro (which isn't going anywhere), a 103 St Sa, a 103 St, an EZM1, and a 156. Love these watches. For me, the sweet spot is the older school versions without the superfluous tech I don't need (such as the Ar capsule).
