    The latest reference of the Seamaster 300m Master Chronometer with the sandwich dial and aluminum bezel is amazing.

    the Omega that @NPV linked is brilliant. That, and the Cartier Santos occupy the highest spots on my wrist-list.

    Apple watch Ultra

    RFI from the Apple watch crowd. My dad is 88 and insists on continuing to live by himself despite a multitude of health issues. He's prone to falling down and we're looking at an Apple watch primarily because of the fall detection. He has a Samsung phone so we would get an LTE so he would have the ability to make emergency calls without linking the watch to a phone. How reliable/sensitive is the fall detection? How easy is it to cancel the 911 should one fall and not need emergency assistance? I assume one can use voice commands to make a phone call? One of his issues is neuropathy and loss of fine motor skills in his hands.

    Can't speak to sensitivity of actual falls or cancelling EMS but if your dad was either of my deceased parents & they were receptive to an AAPL watch I'd already have them one. Started w/ a 4, now have an Ultra (cycling/swimming/USPSA/drills) that work's well if you use Siri (I don't) for calls & many X's when building stages for USPSA the fall detection thought I had fallen when it was me slamming things around. If ya buy direct from AAPL you've got 14 days from delivery to use it & return it for 100% refund plus the series 9 will be out in Sept/oct so ya should be able to get some sales soon on them.

    Finally sacked up and ordered curved spring bars, NATOs are a fun change of pace and I really like them for a summer wearer.

    Explorers. Yes and always


    Also. And I donít mean to rude. But everyone hates me anyway So, f*ck it

    But if one is buying dive watch that isnít a submariner- itís a waste of time and money. And we know it because every watch in the category looks as much like a submariner as possible

    Used market for Tudor and omega is trash. Used market for Rolex - still up.

    If Rolex didnít own Tudor theyíd be just another hu hum brand. Donít waste your energy on those place holders

    You donít need to suck off an AD to get a Sub. Got to chrono24. Get the newest, nicest, cheapest box and papers model. Yes itíll be 1200-2000 Over retail. But that doesnít matter. The Ad isnít calling you. You can even buy it on affirm if you have to have it now. Yes. Youíll pay interest. Big boys pay to play. In a year your sub will still be a break even or small profit item should you need to sell. And you wonít have to live with wearing a lesser watch just due to availability.

    Close out watch to celebrate something? No thank you.

    Iím not offended, itís true. I myself wanted a Rolex, ended up talking myself into two Tudors instead. Sold them and ended up with a RolexÖÖÖif I had spent the little extra over retail in the first place I wouldíve been way better off.

    Funny enough I got a text from AD today that they have an EXP1 for me, Iíll probably buy it and flip mine.

    Not very bright but does lack ambition
    I personally would never buy a Rolex, no matter the price. They just donít appeal to me.
