Re: Noob ISO First NAFT

Unless your wrist is tiny, I strongly recommend a 775 or 777. My wrist measures out at an even 7". I've always felt my wrists were thin.... Get the 775, 777, and the SPRC23. For that amount, shouldn't I be looking at the SPB051/3J? My wrist is about 6.5", and it's not a problem, thanks to the short...

Re: Seiko SBCM023 Perpetual Calendar

I don't think there is any current equivalent to this. It's a shame that the haven't reissued something like a modern version of the 7548. I would be all over a new quartz watch in the SKX or turtle style case.

It's nothing near grand seiko. It's just a quartz 007 with an upgraded movement.
Not exactly. The case is narrower than the SKX. I consider myself small wristed (6.5"), and I flipped one because it seemed too small.

I don't own a watch with a 8215,why are you against it?
Non-hacking, and often have a little bit of a stutter.

^^^ This. It's nice that they went for a vintage vibe, but I would be more interested if it were 38-39mm.

This one looks interesting. Too bad they didn't go all in with fixed lugs. https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_thread/1575413084328.935917083725632244084250-1500x1000MD88198020new.jpg?auto=format&fm=jpg&fit=max&w=1024&h=814&dpr=2&q=40 https://drop.com/talk/28173/meet-felix-drops-first-homegrown-swiss-...

Re: New Bulova American Clipper Automatic

Not bad right Hoppy?! :) It's overall just a nice looking dress watch, although don't know a ton first hand on how the 8215 is to be honest. But totally am taking your word on how they are Erik, and Steve. It's maybe keeping the price of the watch down I guess. ..Bjorn, what a terrific point too on...

Re: Certina's COSC-Certified DS Action Divers

The design is okay. Maybe it's just me, but the having digits only at 12:00 seems like an odd design choice.

Looks nice, but kickstarter is a non-starter for me. Seems odd that a business proudly stating they have been around since 2013 would go this route.

Citizen has some EcoDrive models that would fit. Orient is a great option for a watch with a mechanical movement.

Endoscopy clinic waiting room, waiting for my wife. Fun times. Sorry to hear this, hope all is well. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk No worries. All is well. Just a normal checkup. Given the number of old farts around here, I hope you're all getting regular checks. Scheduled mine for February....
