Random question, but what companies are making quick micro adjustment bracelets?  After wearing my Grand Seiko for the better part of a month, I've grown to enjoy wearing a watch on a steel bracelet, but my wrist seems to vacillate in size more than most.  It can easy vary from uncomfortably tight to too loose over the course of an hour.

 

Back when I was considering a GO 70's (still lusting actually), the easy micro adjustment of the bracelet was quite cool, just push down on the logo and slide in and out as needed.  Anybody else have quick adjustment systems that I should look at?

Rolex Glidelock systems on the Submariner/SD first comes to mind.

Tudor Pelagos bracelet has a spring that expands.

I believe Omega also has an extendable rack-and-pusher system on the clasps of their POs?

Apparently my wife brought a limited edition yogurt into our home !  I'm not sure if we should call Sotheby's  or bring it to an authorize frozen yogurt dealer to see what they will offer us for it. ;)

Oh and a RO is in the photo to try to keep this last limited edition post on point.  Sorry not a great photo but I was in a hurry this morning.

Looking good Stitchy!  I was slumming it today with standard production yogurt rather than limited edition yogurt  ;)

I could be wrong but when I look at the photo of the side of the watch showing the crown, it looks like the lower lug was dented or maybe clipped when polishing.  That could just be the photo isn't good, but again when I look at the photo showing the back of the watch and bracelet, again it looks like the lower lug backs are clipped/more rounded/dented?  The top lugs look more crisp and closer to original to me.  But again, it could be their photographer isn't great.  It can be tough finding the right vintage watch, but 1675s were made for many years and not in small batches.  So I would do some homework and find one that you are really comfortable with in terms of condition.  

Thanks No Frills and Stitchy. I am going to see James tomorrow and check out the wares. I have a feeling it will be a morning of extreme temptation. I will take pictures if such a practice is allowed.

You are very welcome, but I assume you meant to say Dino. smile.gif

I did not answer your query, because I am not familiar with this fellow James.

I was wondering if you would reply like this. I'm glad you did.

You see, aside from the Franck Muller you've posted a few times, we haven't seen any of the watches in your collection you claim to own. You make it a habit to drop somewhat acclaimed or notorious names in the watch industry, often in a fun and playful way but almost as often in a somewhat obnoxious way (though you've behaved far better than when you first stumbled your way here).

Occasionally, I learn something from your posts. But often, I ask myself - is this guy a bullshitting asshole? Or a condescending asshole, who keeps issuing missives from On High and yet wouldn't want to share any of the esteemed pieces in his collection for us plebeians to admire?

Either way, there's a common theme: you're still kind of an asshole.

Either that, or you're an intensely private individual who would rather not show pictures of his most valuable pieces on the Internet, but otherwise feels comfortable prancing around anonymously and claiming he owns a bunch of stuff.

My two cents.

So I went to check out Pepsis and Cokes at a couple of pre-owned places. Not bad, though some were pretty pricey for what they were. Apparently there is still a healthy demand for GMTs.

Then, I happened by a Rolex dealer and popped in to take a look see and they had a BLNR available.

Crapcrapcrapcrapcrap. Now I know what you guys have been going on about.

Did you really need to get that off you chest? You may have thought it but there are plenty of people who do not need to show off their collection whereas others enjoy doing so.

He didn't sleep well.  Yellow gold Subs are haunting his dreams.  That happened to me after I mocked the platinum Daytona here on its launch...it literally haunted me, and now I am ready to submit to its evil will.  Though unlike Frilly's precious Rolex succubus, it has little realistic chance of my buying it.

 

Resistance is futile, Frilly...
