Re: this is interesting, just for the comments

That's funny. I remember reading recently some guy on WUS trashing Uncle Seiko for stealing the tropic strap design. Guy thought he stole it from the Oris 65. :lol:

Re: WRUW 04 Aug 18

Going to wear the Explorer again. After two days I haven't quite bonded with it, maybe today's the day? https://i.imgur.com/UF9qukR.jpg What about it feels off? I think it's probably just that it's not a diver, any time I've tried wearing anything else it doesn't stick. I want to love it, it seems ...

Re: WRUW 02 Aug 18

The AD I ordered my BB58 from has been telling me for months I would get one of the first ones. Two days ago they told me it'd be probably October before they'd have one for me. I was so disappointed I bought a placeholder. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180802/dcef5d61d8d3ef572d1b5b5fbb8332bb....

Re: 16610LV NOS on davidSW, are people on drugs?

Genuine question: is this strategy going to hurt Rolex long-term, or will it do little more than irritate watch nerds on the forums short-term?

Re: Hodinkee's

I have basically become a one watch guy, wearing my Seiko SBDX019 99% of the time. That'll change hopefully in the next couple weeks when I get the call for my Tudor BB58. That may become my next one and only watch, I haven't really decided whether or not I'll keep both, but I really do like the sim...

Excellent review as always Brett.

I'm holding out for the BB58, and just read somewhere that it's delayed now until September. Has anyone else heard this?

Re: Black Bay GMT, 58, S&G & Tudor 1926 First Impressions

My buddy John and I are attending the local Rolex / Tudor preview on Wednesday, so I’ll check this sucker out. I really don’t understand the crown design, other than that they wanted to be different. The “guts” of the crown are basically like the other Rolex stuff. It comes from the historic 7924 "...

I read 47.5 LTL. It's about the size of a 14060, which for me is perfect.

Re: Black Bay GMT, 58, S&G & Tudor 1926 First Impressions

My only minor gripe with the BB58 is the gilt coloring on the bezel insert, which doesn't seem so pronounced in these pics. The dimensions are perfect to me, I always loved the BB but found the dimensions awkward. I'll definitely get one on bracelet when they're available.
