Re: Ute Watch Co is closing up at the end of September

T-bird sorry to hear. I, too, know what it’s like to shut down a labor of love. I appreciate all the business tips and tricks you suggested over the years.

I hope this isn’t a permanent goodbye to Toxic Industries. We’re all rooting for you brother

I like the blue they chose
Does it come with the new blue/silver nato too ?
I hope I’m wrong about this BB58 package but I had understood that Tudor discontinued including 2 strap options with their newer releases sometime last year or even year before

Re: Anyone Ever Buy from Total Watch Repair?

Have used them once in the past, per my email once in 2013 but the PayPal receipt doesn’t state what I purchased

If it was a bad experience I would’ve remembered so I’d say they’re good to go [emoji1]

Update: Got the Topo in yesterday. Great quality for the price point. Feels solid but also went ahead and ordered a Briggs & Riley @Work brief to compare. I’m confused a bit on B&R, however. Are they made in the USA? Some of their stuff? None of their stuff? The interwebz says they are but I’m not s...

OK G-experts.... If I want these features, which model is it? - best STN display - all black case as above (no white letters) - ability to use Nato adapters - screw back - ideally titanium or metal, keeping with all black if possible (if not resin is ok) ???

Anyone still use a desktop PC?

Haven’t owned a PC in years although I’ve always preferred it over the laptop

For work I’m currently using 2 monitors + my laptop hooked up to a docking station so like a PC. Very comfortable and much preferred when I have to actual research something extensively.
