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...

Tempting...but just like I said last time, I'd never wear it. That said that Pastel blue is mighty tempting....

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.

Re: SIHH 2018

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.

Re: SIHH 2018

I hope its not a 50-year tribute to the Polaris, because that would be yet another watch I need but can't afford.

Re: Any tips on bracelet install? - Sinn 212

I've never had trouble with my U series bracelets, but can't easily get my 103 bracelet back on. I would try the spring bar pliers.

I've been following this one, since it was initially listed a week or two ago. Seems there are many questions/concerns about it and the seller.
