Re: Recent ins & outs

I don't think there was ever a watch that disappointed me in terms of the discrepancy between what it should've been and what it is more than the SLA025.

Re: Sinn SDR Question

Now have a U1 Pro, and haven't had any issues with the bezel coating either, although this one is too nice to really torture. I wear the U1Pro for everything, and it’s still perfect. It can take the abuse. I know, and Chris would probably slap me for saying it. But I've gotta have some reason to we...

Re: Sinn SDR Question

Agree. Had an SDR I tortured, and never had any issues with the bezel coating in the 5 or 6 years I owned it. Now have a U1 Pro, and haven't had any issues with the bezel coating either, although this one is too nice to really torture.

Re: Hodinkee's "One-watch" article

16600 for me. I could do a Speedmaster, but for a one watch, I'd like a date and a bit more WR.

Re: Speedy Tuesday Ultraman

I like it except that the UV Ultraman logo doesn’t speak to me. My guess is a quick sell out by speculators again. That UV logo was the first thing that hit me as off here. But as I thought about it in the few seconds I had to make a reservation, it kind of became a non-issue. As Rahul said, there ...

Re: Speedy Tuesday Ultraman

I wasn't gonna do it, as I like the original Speedy Tuesday watch more. But this thing has a DON bezel, and a true step dial, as well as the beveled subdials, and old-school Omega logo and Speedmaster font. Winner in my book. I don't understand why these don't come on bracelet, though. I wasn't ful...

Re: is Revolution smoking crack?

That's a JB Champion bracelet. Totally legit bracelet for a true vintage Speedmaster, and what many of the astronauts wore their Speedmasters on, actually.
Edit: what Jeff said in the post above.

I've had four of them. Only own the PADI now, which I absolutely love. Saw Brice's STO last week, and it is incredible. These are really great pieces.

That code was awesome. Saved $80. On a $400 radar detector. I should've bought a watch.

Re: Seiko 6159 reissue!!!!

Seiko really dropped the ball on this one. I'm hoping the next iteration of the MM300 will skew towards the 6159 more than they already do, but I'm not holding my breath.

Don't mess around. If you're going to do this, go big. 15202 or Nautilus. Don't waste your time or your money on the other stuff.
