Re: Steve Austin's BSR Kobold AD

Austin is a big watch guy. Had the Kobold made for a movie.....Hunt to Kill They had an article about it last year in IW or Watch Time..cant remember. He also wears Sinn, Omega, Breitling, UTS, Panerai and others. He seems to always have some cool watches on. Shot from the movie.... http://i95.photo...

Re: Anybody seen this . . .

Looks like a cheap version of a Isofrane.
Helson seems to use one very similar that is given as the rubber strap with some of their watches....

Re: Why do we....

I guess because we can. I have done this before...not too often but once or twice. It usually is because we see something else we are after, and we get rid of one, to get the other. I have done that, and then regretted it.

Strange hobby we have for sure...

All I can say is I like the bracelet.That diver extension on the clasp is different. This type of bracelet extension is utilized by Citizen in some of their Aqualand models and other diver's.

Natural rubber straps.....where is the vanilla smell from

So, saw this elsewhere today, someone saying he doesnt like the smell of the vanilla natural rubber straps, said it makes him gag....to each their own. I personally really love them. But with that being said, I did some searching around today for about an hour on the net, trying to read as much abou...

Re: Tempest Watches: Viking Concept - Professional Grade Div

I've gone back and edited my post. I say we let Ben introduce his new watch plans and save the Chinese/Swiss flogging for another thread. I agree that around 42mm is my sweet spot, but there are exceptions based on lug shape/length. Panerai and Doxa come to mind. The lugs on this one don't look tha...

Wanted to add some pics of the nato strap, and I added another dial closeup.

Re: "What do you hate on a watch?"

Also need to add, I hate watches that say sapphire crystal right on the dial . I dont know why, I just hate it. Put it on the caseback only. Putting it on the dial just seems cheesy to me for some reason.

Re: Stolas Harbormaster Spinnaker First Look and Full Review

First of all, I love that NATO. The watch isn't bad, and I definitely give them the thumbs up for not using an overused catalogue case. I would prefer the bracelet to be 22mm tapering to 20mm or something like that. 24mm straight thru is a bit wide for my liking. The lume kicks as, and the overall ...
