Re: New Seiko Thread

Also couple questions for you guys that are smarter than me: 1/ what do you think is the purpose of the 24h inner bezel? 2/ about the subdial at 6: I suppose the hour hand is 24h like a glycine airman original? Thanks Hi Andrea, 1. The inner index is showing time zones, not a 24 hour scale. If the ...

Re: New Seiko Thread

I was thinking about this one until I realized it was radio, not GPS. Here in Ohio, I have trouble getting my radio G-Shocks to sync. Yes, the GPS ones are still too big, must be the size of the module (or the fact that Seiko REALLY likes clown watches). Plus, I bet the price would be much higher t...

Seiya comes through

I have a very good friend of mine who is a huge fan of all things Japan, and has a passion for railways in particular (he even owns a lot of the videogames from the Densha De Go! series which are great BTW) So for his birthday I thought a Seiko SVBR003 was a good choice. Seiya shipped super fast, wa...

Re: Deep Dive Dubai - World's deepest pool

I had found Dubai to be extremely boring, so I'd certainly try something like this.
I did the dive in the aquarium inside the mall and it was 30 minutes of stupid fun, wouldn't do it again but I'm happy I did

Re: Is there really such a thing as an exit watch?

No single “exit watch” for me either, but I think if I added: 114270 36mm DD in solid gold 36mm DJ, i think the 126234 I’d be done. These are the only three watches that I think of adding to my collection. The Explorer I will come in sooner or later. The DJ is also very feasible. I’d have to win the...

Re: Most durable solar g shock with compass.

I may be biased by the fact that I’m an avid scuba diver, but in any scenario where you think a piece of gear is vital, I would suggest redundancy. So with the same money, I would rather pick two solid pieces (I personally love the PRW3100 - tough solar movement, plastic buttons, looks great) rather...

Re: Amazon Alexa PSA

First and foremost for me the reason is a sincere form of disdain for Zuck & Bezos. Zuck has created a monster that is clearly a net negative for society, making people dumber, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy and in general creating an angrier, more polarised world. Google gets simila...

I’m 200% with Brice.
I love the OG Aqualand, but can’t do without solar.
If they did one in slightly smaller size and solar I’d be all over it.

Not to mention that one of the only things that might be worse for the planet than oil extraction is... the mining of rare earth minerals. I haven’t looked into the matter seriously, but intuitively hybrids should be the way if one actually wanted to save the planet. There is so much hypocrisy with...

Re: Car Spotting

I’ve never understood how people can think a gigantic electric hummer/f150/cyberturd is better for the environment VS a fuel efficient 4 cylinder ICE.

Then I remind myself 99.9% of people can’t do math, but I would have hoped the 10.1% of us who do should have been able to educate the rest.

Could be, but it’s cold elsewhere in the world and 5000sqf houses for the middle class are an American thing only. For most people across the west 2000sqf for a family of four qualifies as “very, very big”. I’m not questioning people’s choices with money, I was just trying to suggest a way of taking...

When sentiment is involved all else is irrelevant. My parents are in a similar situation, they own a lakefront apartment of 1800 sqf, which is uselessly big (Italians have smaller homes, the avg size for a family of three is 900sqf) for them since they now live alone, but it was purchased by my gran...
