Re: Seaforth GMT tomorrow

If he really wanted to stop it he could take zero cost pre-orders and build watches in appropriately sized batches such as done by OWC. This would provide him some assurance when placing his orders with his suppliers that he wouldn't be over extended. That model, however, wouldn't drive multi-page ...

Re: Seaforth GMT tomorrow

I had one in my cart and, like you, lost it as soon as I went to PayPal. It wasn't a 4 minute hold. It was more like a four second hold. I honestly give zeros shits. It's a nice watch and I'm sure Jason is a nice guy, but ultimately it is just another micro that would've put me $900 further away fro...

I love the look of the watch and would certainly buy one, but I have no interest in having a virtual Black Friday experience.

Re: What Is It?

The real mystery is: how do you have a pen-size knife sharpener in a drawer and not know about it? It isn't exactly the kind of item that one "impulse buys" then forgets about so completely as to post about its purpose on a watch forum... :grin: I forgot I had it; came with this: https://i.imgur.co...

Re: Davosa Argonautic

Those little vanity plates on the side of the case seem to be all the rage these days. Yes, and I can't think of a single instance where the watch would not look better without them. I'm all for limited editions, but putting the numbers on the back is better than some license plate bolted to the si...

One of my favorite episodes of that comic strip is when Andy kicks the hell out of an unsuspecting rugby opponent. The caption was something like "I've always found it better to get your retaliation in first."

Re: Seiko SRPC61, 63, 65, 67, 68

Yes, that is correct too. I forgot about that "5" thing. I agree as well about the dive thing. I trust the water resistance of a 100m rated Seiko more than I do a the water resistance of a 1,000m rated micro. Why? Because I believe Seiko actually tests their watches to their rated depth. Plus, I've...

Re: Seiko SRPC61, 63, 65, 67, 68

Looks really cool T. Guess since it's only 100M they're not screwed down crowns? It says screw down crown in the specifications Terry posted. I'm guessing, if the crown is screw down, then the water resistance is likely above 100m, but Seiko doesn't test beyond 100m for cost reasons. Funky watch. I...

Re: nth sub

I agree with Shorty. I simply do not have the patience to deal with selling to the general public.

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

I think it is a matter of both the current economic boom and the fad of the moment being purposefully fanned by social media marketing. My older friends in the Houston area still refer to Rolex watches as Texas Timex due to how ubiquitous they were during the oil boom. I really appreciate Rolex spor...
