Re: Seiko MM300 discontinued

The 8L35 movement is fantastically accurately! 14 years with my Marine Master 300 and I do not believe in service unless they show problems and it still is within 3 or 4 seconds a day. And the same with my Black Tuna 1000 bought in 2009 keeps about the same time. You are lucky this is not always tr...

Re: Joe Kirk has left Miami

He was back in the Miami boutique the day I picked up the Ultraman. The new manager came over from Omega, so he was probably training a little, and his fams were still here. I think he’s taking over the NYC Boutique, once relocated. I was told by the NYC boutique he was not working there. He was go...

Who? :scratch:
The guy who basically single handly brought GS's to the US. He was also the guy who could get your watch service in Seiko Japan with no issues.

I recently found out Joe is no longer at the Miami boutique. He is working in the Seiko office in NJ helping with GS coming to the US. :cheers:

The show might be about American watchmaking but the site sounds like it was written by an ESL student. Cringeworthy.
I agree with that. I did not get far trying to read the site. I was just wondering about the show :shrug:

Re: Opinions-first car for new teen driver

I’m in the same situation. In PA kids get their provisional drivers license at 16.5 meaning they can drive themselves. Mine will be ready in December. My only real concern is safety, but I’d like his first car to be a bit fun too. I’m thinking a preowned Subaru Outback, Crosstrek or Forester. Somet...

Re: Opinions-first car for new teen driver

straight up buy a car for your kid that you dont' care about. because if you do care about the car you are gonna be pissed every time something gets broke/dented/shit on etc. but get something reliable, like a shitty 98' honda crv.

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

As a side note, the more I look at the photos, the more I think a custom spacer would have be somewhat more complex than a simple flat ring. If I am seeing things accurately, I think a proper spacer ring would require a lip to fit between the outer edge of the existing Seiko ring and the watch case...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

The white spacer does not look custom made, it has a bunch of slots and notches that don't match or meet up with anything particular. I have seen some watches with a universal spacer. They are made to fit multiple designs. So try it a few different ways to see if it matches up better in a different...

I am using Dan / OWC as an example of a micro brand who is trying to do the right thing, the correct thing. What Dan does isn't necessarily unique, but he is an example of someone doing his level best to deliver a quality product. I'm sure Graeme and Graham (see what I did there :grin: ) are no dif...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

Sellita actually produces a large percentage of the "ETA" 2824s under contract with the Swatch Group. In my experience there is absolutely zero difference in quality between the SW200 and the 2824. Chris I can tell you for a fact there is a difference. Most of last week I was working with my watchm...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

Just to summarize: this thread has lots of words, no pictures, and no boobies. Oh and some company is shafting its clients by sending out a movement other than advertised, poorly fitted in a case made for the advertised movement. The company advertised the movement in it. The caseback has the wrong...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

The problem is they are actually using 2 movement spacers. The first is the stock Seiko grey Derlin / nylon spacer you can see in the above photograph showing the dial feet. The second spacer is the white nylon / plastic spacer you see Jake pulling out with his tweezers. I guess I don't see the spa...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

I borrowed a first edition U1 and it didn't have this issue with movement play. I bet the company that assembled these watches had a mix up. I don't think this is uncommon at all though. I have a 1200T Doxa here that was suppose to come with a 2824-2, but it actually has a SW200 in it. At least tho...
