Re: Synchron 70’s Military Homage

I’m enjoying it a ton. Looks great on the isofranes (I got an olive one in addition to the black) but just works on NATOs and MN-style straps.

Re: Synchron 70’s Military Homage

I’ll bet one of these would be stellar on a Eulit Perlon strap. If someone wants to sell or trade, please let me know. Not exactly the same but would look something like this. I have to say, the PVD case opens up a lot of tasty strap options. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210725/fbad073c1e130f...

Re: Mr. Yao Crackpot's new release - Tornek Rayville

Too thick, suboptimal movement, and playing the Yao waiting game is a non-starter for me.

Mine finally came in, four months after I ordered it. And I love it. Will get a lot of wrist time this summer.

Re: New Seiko Thread

Makes little sense, but that logo, which I’m ok with on cheap Seikos, annoys me on more expensive watches. When buying my current MM300 I opted for the non-logo version even though I love the gold hands of the new one.

This shouldn’t matter to me but it does. I would never pay over $1K for a Seiko with the X logo on the dial.

Re: The 001 Arrived!

There are Seiko divers and then there is the mighty MM300. The only flaw I see with mine is that it no longer makes me want to own any of the lower-end beater-type Seiko divers anymore. I’m on my second and not going to make the mistake of selling this one.

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

Not gonna happen for me. I bought what I thought was my exit watch, a 1665 Sea-Dweller, a few years ago. It didn’t stick. I have migrated my collection to more lower cost watches, and I enjoy that more than having fewer more expensive pieces.

Re: Tudor BB58 your thoughts & advice.

If you don’t need a date, I can’t think of a better one watch than either of the BB58s, as long as you are ok with a watch that doesn’t have the classic black and pure white color scheme. The price is right, the build quality and movement are excellent, and the case is my favorite amongst the entire...

Another Tudor Announcement 5/25

No one mentions this, but the BB58 case is the nicest case in the Rolex/Tudor family. And I prefer aluminum bezel inserts to ceramic bezels. No easy adjustment functionality on the Tudor bracelets is annoying.

Everyone should own one in my opinion. Especially because it doesn’t cost much more than all of all the mid range Seiko divers everyone loves, and is so much better.

Re: Another Tudor Announcement 5/25

Not interested in this at all. Tudor has been missing more than it’s been hitting recently, at least in my opinion. I absolutely love the BB58s and really like the Pelagos. But the newer stuff is just ok :shrug:

I remember being offered one at an AD in 2008 for under MSRP when I bought my 16600. But then I also had the chance to buy a white Daytona at MSRP at that time. LOL.

Re: New Seiko Thread

So the current MM300 (SLA021) cases also have a crown tube that can't be replaced? The SKX007 has a replaceable crown tube, correct? Maybe I'll just go that way. I can't handle a potential new case for a stripped crown tube. I'm careful but have had it happen a few times over the years. The SKX007 ...
