Re: Seiko FFF ( Fifty Four Fathoms )

I really liked the first photos I saw of the un-modded seiko 5, so went looking for the watch and then stumbled on the WUS thread - It was like reading a soap opera script :banghead: ......like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our dials....... :banghead: by the end I wasn't feeling it...

I usually go for the first one, but hell I was born in South Africa, and raised in Australia, so my english is as bastardised as it comes.

Re: For all you lume lovers, yes you!

For easy visibility all night long, Tritium>anySuperSpecialLume. Sure you don't get that big charged up lume effect, but we all know that doesn't last. If I ever sell my MSAR, I am sure the tritium tubes will be missed the most. Aside from Ball and Marathon, who else delivers the Trit goodness? (als...

Re: Not bonding

Flip it. I have a bad ass Seiko orange monster I might be willing to trade. I will throw in a free bright orange nato to sweeten the deal.
Seriously though, the JLC is very nice. Maybe you could convince your friend to trade his watch for something different? You could pass on my offer to him maybe?

Re: ORIS GREAT BARRIER REEF TIMEPIECE

I tried it on once. Very nice, but at 47mm it is too large for me. I am sure I will eventually add an Oris to my collection, as they seem to be a solid choice for the money.

Re: Slowly, but surely

I have felt this also with my MSAR. I was wearing my PO XL alot, so when the Marathon arrived it felt weird wearing a watch with such a small busy dial, and comparitively small case. I felt a bit dissapointed, but I have really warmed to it now after a few months. Love the tritium, and I actually li...

Re: Speaking thruth to Power..

There is much to ponder in this thread. I have spent some time at WUS, and have recently found DWC. It is my opinion that if half the threads at WUS degenerated into pictures of scantily clad asian girls, then It would probably be more interesting. For what it is worth, I like the DSSD, but Helson l...
