Tudor Advisor Anyone?

I’ve been checking out the Tudor Advisor lately, as I’m drawn to the idea of a mechanical alarm watch. Both the Vulcan and JLC are more than I want to spend, and from what I’ve seen on Recon, these seem to be pretty reasonable. I’m not a huge flipper (by DWC standards anyways), and this one seems to...

Re: Insanely Good Customer Service - Resco

I had a Gen 1 and I loved everything about it, but it had the Slava movement and it was a shitshow—went through 2 replacements and multiple trips back and forth and I gave up. Then they replaced them with the 2824 and that seemed to eliminate the problem. I would get another one, but not at retail.

I’m glad to hear of your good experience and that their CS was so good; my experience was less than stellar, but that was several years ago.

Re: 9 Reasons to Enjoy Sinn

Have had 3 different versions of the 103 and 2 U1’s and for some reason they haven’t stuck around. That being said, I’m starting to jones for one of the LE 356’s.

Re: The Forstner Komfit "JB" Mesh Watch Band is Back!

I’m going to grab one for my Speedy, just for the historical aspect. I’ll probably put it on, hate it, and it will be banished to the Island of Misfit Straps.

Re: New Tudor - Is This For Real?

That being said, I’m going to wait until they have one at the local Tudor shop to try on. Too expensive to go, “Holy Shit, that’s ugly” if I order one and don’t...

Oh man, I always forget about the Monza. That thing is fucking sweet. Black pushers, crown and date wheel would make it just about perfect. Yeah, I’m going to have to disagree (respectfully, of course) with that one. I think the chrome pushers a ala the original really stand out—in a good way—and p...

Re: Anyone else put off by PADI? Am I overeacting?

PADI doesn’t need more money, it’s the AMWAY of the dive community (and I’m PADI certified DM). Maybe if the money went to reef protection programs or something similar. In any case, I don’t think it says anything about the wearer; go for it if you dig the colors. It’s the reason I bought one. Sent ...

Re: Timeless in Texas

Tangent: I had a similar experience while trying to buy a handwound Nomos club with two separate vendors (one in Europe, one in Hong Kong). Maybe it’s just that Nomos is low on stock on this particular sku and it’s hard getting one. I completely understand that, it was demanding payment up front an...

Re: Timeless in Texas

I’ve purchased 3 watches from them over the past few years, and when I bought the Tudor GMT this year (granted, high demand watch) I wasn’t offered any kind of break—on it or extra straps. Wasn’t really bothered by it, but I don’t think I’ll make any effort to purchase from them in the future, as I ...
