Sorry don't get it.Yeah, I like that character too.
Speedy over the 15,000 Gauss every day and twice on Sundays.Speedy all day
Along with the usual suspects (EWC, HQ Milton), I recommend Andrew Shear of Sheartime. He is very responsive to e-mails and was able to find me a matte-dial Rolex 16800 in top condition for a competitive price that I (stupidly?) failed to jump on.Can anyone recommend a solid vintage dealer? I'm trying to find a GMT, no-date sub, or a seadweller. No problem with replaced parts but want disclosure + pricing that reflects it.
[justifying why a watch is peak watch] It is, from a complication perspective, literally one of the most technically accomplished watches in existence. But the base movement is technically inferior to the base movement in the 5170/5270.
A wristwatch is a thing you strap onto your wrist and have to use to tell the time. The range of “optimal” is not all that wide.
Yeah, but you were replying to TM, who thinks 12mm is huge.Allegedly, this one’s a hair above 12mm. Not bad.
Sweet, ill check them all out! I dont trust EWC. Sold a friends watch claiming it was new/unworn when that wasnt the case.
We should put together a drawn-out, dramatic commercial with a bunch of sad-faced pedestrian watch owners and a mopey Sarah McLachlan song/voice over. Then we could raise enough cash to solve this terrible problem.Can we get serious for a moment, please? I’d like to talk about an important topic that affects us all.
Every year, millions and millions of watch collectors suffer from a devastating but preventable disease: Chronically Repulsive Anti-reflective Coating Syndrome (otherwise known as CRACS). Despite the billions of dollars that patrician horological overlords, such as Foo, pump into the watch industry, watch companies continue to ignore our CRACS, thereby equipping watches with crystals that reflect light at near-fatal rates. As our CRACS deepen, we are unable to photograph our watches in the wild without some reflective obstacle impeding what should be a clear view of our dials. Why haven’t they fixed it, you ask? I don’t know. Is it THAT hard to create a proper AR coating system that would seal all CRACS forever on all watches? Seemingly not. This bothers me. Nobody should have untreated CRACS - nobody! My CRACS, especially on Panerai, gets worse every day.
I’d love to hear from fellow collectors that are deeply afflicted in their CRACS. How do you feel and why haven’t watch companies fixed this issue? We’re here for you. I’m here for you. In the meantime, please donate to our ever-growing CRACS-prevention and treatment foundation, FooHatesPoors.org. Thank you.
