Re: Hey all. Greenhorn here.

Huge Seiko diver fan. Currently own two, as well as a 6309, and my son has an SKX007. Have owned many more, including a 6105 and a 6217, which I was dumb to sell. Solid workhorses.

Re: 58

Looks amazing. Absolute home run for Tudor. I'm actually not sure there is anything they could do to this watch to make it any better for me. I need one.

Re: Ever sold a watch because of weight?

Traveling to upstate NY tomorrow for the next few days. Was planning on wearing the U1P on bracelet. Because of this thread, just threw it on a NATO. I doubt I would've noticed the weight before this thread, but I just felt that lighter would be better after thinking about it and reading this thread...

Ever sold a watch because of weight?

Heavy watch on bracelet, but I get used to the weight after about a day. Part of that is it feels balanced on bracelet despite the weight. The U1 wears really well on NATO and rubber.

Re: Shogun vs Pelagos

I love it as I've said before. In terms of specs, it really is close to perfect. As Matt once said, it's as if Tudor took a dive watch fanboy focus group, and created a WIS-nerd dive watch based on its input. But ultimately, as nearly perfect as it is, I found it just a tad bit too clinical, and ult...

Re: Nato Buying Guide

As an aside, I'll never buy from C&B again for their ripoing off Terry. And yes, been there and done that with NATOs for years, and Toxic are all I want and need.

Re: Shogun vs Pelagos

Shogun is a cool watch. The Pelagos is one of the best watches. If you can stretch to get one, do it. I let mine go last year, and I really miss it.

Re: Seaforth GMT tomorrow

For me, it's emblematic of the Participation Trophy generation. A big chunk of the (mostly younger) population thinks its entitled to something just because it showed up and wants it. I just don't understand this. And yes, it's good to have opinions, but strong opinions about something like this.......

Re: Seaforth GMT tomorrow

I don't understand why people think they are entitled to buy a watch, just because they have the desire and the money to own said watch. That's not how the world works sometimes. Also, people getting upset because a sales model is not to their liking makes me chuckle.

Perfect proportions.

I'm going to do something pretty lame, I think...mod mine with aftermarket Merc hands. Will be a perfect big crown Sub homage.

Umm, you could pick up one of the greatest Luminors ever, with a sandwich dial, from a great seller, for not much more :lol:

Hi, Chase. I'm a big fan of your watches. The designs, cool movements, and all the special details you pack into your watches make them standouts for me. Your story is also inspiring, and I applaud you for taking a lot of chances and pursuing your dreams. While I'm on a tight watch budget these days...

Re: Buying a Preowned 328i x-drive M Sport - Any advice?

Can't speak to BMWs all that much, but I would get a good Pre-Purchase inspection done. If you can get a BMW CPO as part of the deal, I'd spring for that. And it's a lower-end 3-series, so yeah, I think you're gonna need to chip it to have any real fun in it. Set aside the $2K for the tune and speed...

10 Years Old Today

I've always been a watch guy. When I was a kid in the '80s, it was digital sports watches, and then Swatches. Didn't wear a watch in college, but then the bug hit me in a big way. Bought a quartz Citizen chronograph, followed by a quartz Titanium Swiss Army. One call night in the ICU as a resident, ...
