Do they make long sizes?
I'm just curious about your choice to buy another grinder. My recollection is that you brew coffee with an aeropress. Since the aeropress is so forgiving, my question is whether there is much benefit to using an excellent grinder. I could see better consistency, but when you're brewing basically one or two cups a day, how much does the grinder really matter? Again, we're talking coffee here, not espresso, so I don't believe fineness or uniformity really matter all that...
How do they each sit on the wrist? Conventional wisdom says the blue is too large and topheavy, particularly for the size of the bracelet. On the plus side, the inner ring is not as apparent as in the photos and it's a marvel of engineering. Plus, the dial is pretty cool.The BLNR is pretty awesome in every way though a little flashy.
I agree with this. I think the date and moon phase complications are very well done on this dial.
A bunch of members bought new old stock JM Handmades some 10 years ago. Gosh, those were the days. Search my username for a few leads. I still have mine but they're in need of a resole, and frankly, they're just sitting because I'm not sure who I'd trust to do the job.
Yep, I think it's going to be a hit.
I went with the silver dial for a classic look. I didn't really consider the black and the blue didn't exist back in 2008. I don't have many watches so versatility was and is key for me. I haven't seen the blue in the metal but it seems pretty striking in the pictures. Not in a bad way necessarily, but I prefer more understated looks.Here's a picture of mine, fresh from a recent repair.
I've posted about this 5500 that I inherited a while back that needed some repair and service. It's now looking and running great. I've been giving a lot of thought to its wearability given that it's on the small side and it's intended to be a sports watch. The solution that I'm testing is to dress it up a little -- so I went with this brown round-scaled crocodile strap. I like it but I'm not convinced that this is the optimal solution and am now considering a brown...
For the record, I still think the Rolex is the clear winner, but for discussion purposes, I'll mention baume et mercier, chanel, and bulgari.
I bought my wife a similar watch but 31mm and silver dial. Diamond dial, fluted bezel, jubilee bracelet, you can't go wrong. I enjoy looking at it as much as she does! We didn't find anything comparable.
