Re: I do NOT need this, but....

I wonder how it would look on an Isofrane....? I don't think an Isofrane would fit. The space between the case and lug bar is tight. I'm thinking about this Bonetto as a rubber alternative. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160803/4a18084d1979c4bc1a36c7feb76fa545.jpg This looks thin enough at the e...

Re: Any one seen the Tudor Black bay 36 yet

I wonder if Tudor testing the waters on smaller watches and the alarm clock size watches mite be going the way of the DODO extinct. One thing I notice since I added some smaller case vintage watches to the collection they are more comfortable than some of my larger vintage ones due to less weight o...

It really does have the best blue, probably only the Blumo does it as well.

Re: How to trim 24mm ISOfrane to 22mm?

Just pinch it to fit. It'll look fine. Don't do it. http://i237.photobucket.com/albums/ff273/mattcantwin/funny%20too/butt69b8e-fat_brazilian_woman_zpsuzgti38x.jpg That's just a bad angle. http://picture-cdn.wheretoget.it/f2pcu7-l-610x610-swimwear-bikini-floral+bikini-floral+swimwear-bikini+bottoms-...

Re: Are these the new SKX007/009's ?

I actually think these will wear well on smaller wrists due to the lug hole placement and the curvature of the lugs. Should also look nice on just about any strap.

Re: Fat spring bars

Thanks for the links! Now would anyone know who has FAT (2.5mm) spring bars but with the narrow end that fit into lug holes of non-Seiko watches? Seiko FAT bars have 1.1 mm ends - I need thinner than that, any leads? Looks like Jake has them in 22mm but not in 20mm. http://www.dagazwatch.com/apps/w...

Re: TZ sales rules

I'm sure there are a handful of serial flippers who move this many watches, but I don't think it's completely unreasonable to assume that someone selling more than one watch a month is a pro. And I do agree that someone running a watch business using a site like TZ, WUS, or DWC should help share th...

I'm sure the watch wasn't worth a whole lot when someone traded it in back in the 70s.

Re: WTH Tactico? SBDX012

Perhaps the caseback acts as the movement holder? Look at how it threads into the case.... I think your right, so that would move the bezel every time you screwed it down. That is goofy as hell. Two screws hold the movement in place, looks kind of janky to me. http://i735.photobucket.com/albums/ww3...

47mm cases that are completely flat means you'd need a gigantic wrist to wear these.
