Re: Seaforth preorders tomorrow 1/18

I agree. I'm probably one of the type of guys Halios wants to attract. I've not tried a Halios product before, but the (ETA) Seaforth was a model that I would've liked to try. The way this ordering process seems to be (not) working, however, has turned me from being a potential buyer into a casual ...

Down for me as well. I just wanted to play with the configs, but wasn't actually going to order.

Re: Introducing the Sinn EZM 1.1 Limited Edition

That seems excessive. My U1P bracelet has a lot more wear on it, and is unmarked.

Re: Incoming & Review....Vertex M100

Great review. That's a nice watch. First saw this in a GQ or Esquire spread on the dirty dozen recently.

Re: Down jacket ideas

I swear by my 800-fill Patagonia down sweater jacket. Really freaking warm, lightweight, and easily packable. But then again, I love in NC. I like Canada Goose, but have no need for that sort of warmth.

Re: A refreshing start to the new year, with a new perspective...

I don't understand buying a watch and having it wear you, so to speak. Life really is too short for that. I've sold all my more expensive watches, and honestly enjoy somewhat less expensive pieces for that exact reason. If I scratch the lugs of my Sinn 103 changing the straps, it's not something tha...

Re: Seaforth preorders tomorrow 1/18

The watches are nice, but really? For nearly the same money, those Seiko SPBs look pretty fantastic to me. Granted, you can't get them in those crazy cool dial colors. I personally prefer the Seaforth, not sure why but didn’t bond with the Seiko. Looks great but... also always worrying about some i...

Looks like a combo brushed and polished case though.

Re: SIHH 2018

I really think I might try to make one of the Polaris dates happen in a year or two. I almost pulled the trigger on the 2008 Tribute a few years ago, and I probably should have. One of my favorite watches of all time. This one isn't quite as cool, but it still pushes a lot of buttons for me. And I'm...

Re: SIHH 2018

The LE is amazing but expensive. I'm partial to the date version, but that no date is going to be an amazing pickup for about $5K used.

Panerai is so disappointing. I really think the glory years of that brand are long gone, since SIHH 2011 or so.

OK, I take it back. I actually love the Polaris LE and the date version. Interested to see how these look on the bracelet.

Closed 6s and 9s, lower WR--not good. I hope these don't use spring bars, too.
