Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

I wonder if the dial feet for a Seiko movement are the same as for the Miyota? I suspect not. I also suspect the hands are different due to differing pinion sizes. If my suspicions are correct, this would mean Unimatic had the cases machined first, then their Miyota supplier flaked so they had to r...

Re: A new high in low[balls]...

I've got to wonder if anyone actually caves in to this kind of request. Well, from legitimate dealers that buy, I’m sure it’s not an issue. Most will ship back to you on their dime as well if you do not come to an agreement or if they find it to not be in condition you stated. This business above, ...

That’s pretty good, especially since you bought it second hand.

Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

That’s how they get, little incremental changes. Next thing ya know, you’re trying to shove an iPad in your pocket. They already have that, it’s the plus (now max) version which has been around a few years. If you want an upgrade and want to hold on to older smaller form factor, Grab the 8. It’s th...

Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

I don’t really want to upgrade, but I’m locked into the Apple ecosystem and dual Sim capability is a real plus for me. I just wish they’d get a grip on sizes. My 7 is about as big as I ever want to go for front pocket carry. Hell, I still have an SE I swap over to every now and then to remind mysel...

Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

So what's the deal with the Xr that is coming out? I took it to be like the 5c version of the Xs, but I can't believe how much cheaper it is. I would have thought if anyone didn't want to spend the money on an Xs or Xs Max that the iPhone 8 Plus would still be an attractive option, but it's a simil...

Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

Does anyone know if they went back to the harder glass? The screen scratches on my 8 suck and that’s never happened with previous iPhones. Looks to be the case with the X as well. It’s basically the same glass on the X on the new XS and Max. I have scratches on my X as well. I think it’s more the c...

Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

I can't be the only one who thinks $1K for a phone is redonkulous It’s steep for sure. But considering how much people use their phones, it’s all relative I guess. Plus, most normal people think we’re crazy to spend any amount on a watch when a phone tells the time just fine! Yup, this is why I sta...

Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

Thinking of going Android/Google with my next phone. I really fail to grasp what extra I'm getting buying an iPhone versus another type of phone. It really comes down to the OS. Both offer the same hardware these days. For instance, Samsung S9 vs iPhone 10X. Both have dual cameras, awesome screens ...

Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

Thanks for the ram info. Regarding the screen, weirdly enough I seem to prefer LCD displays to OLED. I like the colors better Keep in mind you won’t be able to watch full HD video on it either as the display is only 828p which means it will revert to 720p when watching videos. Which is weird since ...

Am I the only one concerned by the fact that Apple collected our fingerprints first, and now is collecting our faces? I don’t know, I’m maybe paranoid but I’ve always avoided Android for privacy concerns, I also never activated the Touch ID and would never activate the Face ID either. To get back o...

Re: Anyone picked up or planning to pick up the new iPhone?

I'm still on a 6s plus... I like what I'm hearing about the new ones, but three things are holding me back so far: 1. Pricing - becoming a bit absurd. Not as absurd as watches, but still ;) 2. Losing the physical "home" button (+see below re: access - no home button, no fingerprint access) 3. Face ...

At first glance, I thought ok. Not bad. Hate the font for logo but otherwise looked good. Go to site to check it out, and it’s a Miyota 8215 series and a mineral crystal for $480. Hot garbage. For less than that (including shipping) you can get the Scurfa Bell Diver with 9015 and sapphire and I guar...
