Re: Gaia & Co.'s Primavera Collection

haha that logo i agree, but at least they made an effort. there's at least one well-known microbrand that basically typed their company name in MS Word and called it a day. Borealis. Apparently they changed it but I can’t really notice a difference. In fairness I would take a good looking watch wit...

Re: Switched from IPhone X to 8 Plus after 11 months.

I’ve never used the dongle. I switched to air pods as I got them for free. and I’m just not a big headphone guy.

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

When Unimatic first launched I loved the design of the original model. I reached out via email with some basic questions, but only got generic “canned” answers. When I pressed for specifics on a couple things I was brushed off. I found that enough to keep from giving them my business. Now I’m glad ...

Switched from IPhone X to 8 Plus after 11 months.

So I was due for an upgrade. I had the X for 11 months and while I dealt with it or got used to it, I ultimately decided I would not get an XS or Max and didn’t want the X anymore and got an 8 plus. iPhone 8 Plus vs iPhone X Things I miss -tap to wake. I’ve put on raise to wake and don’t miss it as ...

Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

So, I saw this post on Facebook while scrolling through today. Jake actually posted it and has it as a sponsored Facebook post. Apparently someone emailed Unimatic and sent them the link and their response was “haters gonna hate” https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181015/625c81c62dd9e0dc4888273da4f7...

Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

That's the kind of jury-rigged mess I'd expect from a far-east vintage Seiko puppy mill, not an established micro. Yeah, based on the # of years they've been around, this bush league shit is unacceptable. :tap: :smack: I believe this brand has only been around for like 2 years. Edit: 3 years Sent f...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

Absolutely for sure. If this were my watch new from Unimatic, it would never have gotten to Jake. It would've been on its way back to Italy for a refund as soon as I saw the dial swim around in the case. Given the watch is with Jake, I'm guessing the watch is no longer returnable. This is why I tho...

I don’t know. Something about how it looks in pictures makes me not like it. The lugs look very long and crown looks like it sticks out to much.

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

I wonder if the dial feet for a Seiko movement are the same as for the Miyota? I suspect not. I also suspect the hands are different due to differing pinion sizes. If my suspicions are correct, this would mean Unimatic had the cases machined first, then their Miyota supplier flaked so they had to r...

That’s how they get, little incremental changes. Next thing ya know, you’re trying to shove an iPad in your pocket. They already have that, it’s the plus (now max) version which has been around a few years. If you want an upgrade and want to hold on to older smaller form factor, Grab the 8. It’s th...

So what's the deal with the Xr that is coming out? I took it to be like the 5c version of the Xs, but I can't believe how much cheaper it is.

Does anyone know if they went back to the harder glass? The screen scratches on my 8 suck and that’s never happened with previous iPhones. Looks to be the case with the X as well. It’s basically the same glass on the X on the new XS and Max. I have scratches on my X as well. I think it’s more the c...
