Nice Rolex rOgue. Did you find it locally? I agree they are kinda undervalued, but sweet watches. I originally wanted that model until I saw the BLNR. Then I had to have one of those. I love my Sub a lot. I wear it the most. I like the clean face without the date.

I agree the glide lock clasp is a keeper. I appreciate the quick micro adjustments.

If they didn’t cost so dang much I’ve have 3 or 4 more!


Beautiful Rolies coloradohunter44!!! Did you just acquire the "Batman"? People are going crazy trying to find those now that the model has been discontinued (the new BLDR features a "Jubilee" bracelet and new movement). Enjoy yours!!!


I bought the BLNR before they went insane on the prices. I'm sure if times get tough I can make a tidy sum, but for now I shall keep it and enjoy wearing it. I like the colors, some do not. I did steal my glide lock bracelet off my Sub and put it on the BLNR. I then dropped my Sub off at Rolex in Dallas with a rubber b strap and had them replace the bracelet with a new one from Rolex. Not cheap, but what I really wanted. Thx.

I visited a local jewelry store to pick up something for my wife and I walked away with this neat watch at a great deal. This Kinetic Seiko Dive watch is sort of a hybrid between quartz and automatic watches. It feels similar to an automatic with its rotor that spins and charges a capacitor/battery which powers the quartz movement.

The accuracy, being a quartz movement is a bit better than Seiko automatics in the same price range that I am used to. I set it sometime last week and when I checked it today it was running around 1 second fast from atomic time.

The only drawback is the weight. It is a VERY HEAVY watch. It is also on the large side but I’ve gotten used to it pretty quickly. With a good Nato strap it looks and feels great on the wrist.

Case press recommendations?
 
For those of you who regularly take apart your watches for various reasons, do you use a case press for reinstalling the case back? What model do you use/recommend? I've searched Esslinger and Otto Frei, and find they range in price from ~$20 to over $1000.
 
I would need dies to handle up to a 42mm case, with the crystal being only 35mm. For me, this would be for very occasional use replacing batteries in quartz watches.

I bought this cheap one off of Amazon. I have only used it three times, works great. I only do battery changes on mine and the wife's watches

Time to get one in time for the 50th Apollo 11 anniversary!
Or even better an Omega Speedmaster 50th!
