Re: WRUW Sat 02/10/18

Seaforth II Love the fixed bezel version (my v1s were both "bezeled") https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180210/407118ba794995779f1a1fb7f5ce4018.jpg [emoji122]congrats Matt. That’s really nice, the grey turned out great. I too am a fan of the fixed bezel. I’d not mind snatching a yellow or blue fix...

Re: Down jacket ideas

Back in the day Campmore was my go too. I don't know if they still have great prices though. They do and offer decent discounts throughout the year. The majority of their business had been catalog business and is now web based. I actually live between their store and their warehouse, both are about...

Re: Who needs Fricker?

Fricker doesnt make the cases entirely either. They design and then create machinable drawings. Out source stamped blanks in many cases and then do some of the finish machining, drilling of the lugs, engraving of bezels, chamfering, fluting, then the cases goto another company for the final surface...

Re: Laptop with Windows 7; asking for your thoughts, advise, recommendations

Is Windows still supporting 7 with updates etc? This is the key right here Lance. If you do find a W7 laptop it might end up being a short life for it since they are phasing out W7 support. Here is a question though, do you need windows products? If not get a chrome book. Such a simplistic computer...

I've said it before... Growing up near the Pratt and Whitney plant in East Hartford, I'm certain there are dozens of aviation quality machine shops out there who could handle the job of machining a watch case. The question is just cost, not qualifications.

Yep what they said. Stick with a free Avast or AVG. They don't have a ton of bloatware attached to it.

Re: Down jacket ideas

The MyTrailCo 800 fill down jacket I purchased for my wife came today and my initial impressions are positive. We’ll see how my wife likes it when she comes home later today, but from a value perspective, I think it compares pretty well to the Patagonia for 50% the price. That said, the Patagonia i...

Just ordered a MyTrailCo down jacket for my wife. I bought her the 800 fill down ultralight jacket for $99 which seems like a good price (and a low risk if the jacket doesn't live up to expectations). I wear a Patagonia down jacket as my daily coat. If there is any interest, I'll post some side by ...
