I love the SKX007. I have the orange variant but I don’t own a stock (unmodified SKX) SKX007. An aftermarket company just released a titanium case for the SKX007. I love how much parts support it enjoys. The Turtle is my fav Seiko but the SKX & Samurai are high on my list.


Did you guys see the new Gnomon exclusive Steinie 39 marine blue that was released today? The Tudor snowflake hands look great on that blue dial. Going by the serial numbers still available the first 100 are selling out damn fast!!!!

You guys are killin' me with these orange divers! Big Grin

I wish I had gotten into the watch game a few years back, before Seiko's pricing started to go from reasonable to "no thanks."

Aaaaaand just like that the marine blue Gnomon special edition Steinhart is sold out. Whoa that was fast! I love the little Tudor Oyster Prince homage, it looks close to the real deal.

P220 Smudge, Jomashop is running a damn tempting sale on a black ion finished save the ocean Turtle. $299 shipped is a heck of a deal.

One of the Rolexes? I don't think so, but I don't know what else to guess.

Here's the skeleton Bulova, fellas:

Nope. But in fact, I am trading my no-date Sub bought just this past June. I can't have those lugs on my Sub when the new model exists with the (fixed) trimmer lugs.

Thanks for the heads up on that. Thankfully, that one isn't calling my name at the moment.

Those Bulovas of yours are nice. A lot of the skeleton watches I'm seeing look kind of garish and very busy looking, but that one, I find classy and still easy to read.

Speaking of Bulova, this is more calling my name than the Seiko:
https://www.jomashop.com/bulova-watch-96b322.html

I know, it's more, but they're both out of the budget right now anyway. I find myself drawn to Bulova's simple, clean designs. After all, it was this watch that kicked off my recent interest anyways:

Nice Bulovas, Smudge! And thank you.

I'm drawn to the brand because my grandfather wore Bulova, and my uncle had a jewelry shop and wore an Accutron for a while.

I like the skeleton Bulova I have, but I wear it next-to-never. I should probably find it a home where it would be worn and not kept in a case. Granddad's Bulova is just cool to have because it was his. I had it serviced and cleaned a number of years ago, but don't wear it.




God bless America.

My only problem with Jomashop is what I want they don't have in stock.

My Father in Law and I shared many interests. Watches were among them. It was his wish that this one pass on to me. I never wanted to receive it this way, but I'm going to cherish it and wear it on many adventures, especially on motorcycle trips, which was another of his passions.

So this was my daily wearer, and will be again after the broken wrist is healed. I’m quite happy with this watch.

That’s a great looking Phoibos!!!

I just got a Phoibos Leviathan. They make amazing watches. I am 100% blown away by this bronze Phoibos.

In-depth review coming soon. Until then a teaser pic.
