Thank you. I really love it. It really wears well. Almost don’t know it’s there most of the time.

Any of you Helm lovers checked out the Ti KuriBhuri on the site. The white dial version looks great.

Well, the IWC went in for service. Started out wicked accurate, and it runs -10 per day. So I guess it’ll be back at some point in the next 6 weeks or so.

While at the Richemont Botiques, I found what will definitely be the next in the collection. The Breitling Avenger 43 GMT. I will probably go with the white dial as that’s my preferred color, but the black is pretty nice.

I'd take the black dial, of the two, but both look nice.

I've been drooling over the Breitling Superocean with the blue dial. I'll just keep drooling because the better part of 5k is to rich for my blood.

Got my invitation to buy email this morning, within 3 hours all the white dials were gone, emailed Matt about getting on the list for next batch of white dials. Could get the black dialed one but have my sites set on the white one.

I had my order for a White dial completed 13 minutes after the invitation email this morning. I'm glad I didn't hesitate.

Well good news after all, went back on line and all of sudden, no longer sold out, it is morning now where Helm is located so maybe they did a reset. Got my order in for a white dial but they were sold out of blue rubber straps, bummer.

Seems Rolex supply is loosening up. All the crypto-billionaires have stopped their insatiable buying now that they're crypto-broke.

Got "the call" for a Sea Dweller (Deep Sea, new model 2022). Probably gonna let the next guy in line have it. But I'll check it out just to see what a 17.7mm thick watch feels like on the wrist. I'll get a pic for y'all.

Word to the wise, if you want a new Rolex. Get in to the AD now and make yourself known. They will start to have them in the back this fall, I'm sure of it.

I preordered a new Phoibos Apollo titanium and the new Helm Khuraburi Ti (white dial) along with new bracelets for my Vanuatu and Komodo. I ordered a Vanuatu style engineer bracelet for the Komodo. I think that will really look and feel good on my small orange dial diver.

I’ve sold a lot more watches this summer than I bought but there are some interesting new additions in the works.


I wasn’t planning on getting the Apollo, the first Gen was nice but it really grab my attention. The latest Gen for some reason is much more tempting. The pre-order deal that takes off $145 was too tempting. (Code is : APOLLO3A and is good until Aug 20th) I love how the hour hand looks like the lunar lander.

I do not own a single factory titanium watch. I modded a Seiko SKX with a titanium case and love how light it is. I am eager to own a watch where both the case and bracelet are made from titanium.

I've got one; I love it. I love my heavy Seiko Samurai models, and it's a world of difference when I put the "old faithful" titanium chrono on. It's an interesting thing for me -- I love a [moderately] heavy watch, because I know it's there. And I love a very light watch, because I can forget it's there. Cool

I think a titanium SKX would be pretty danged cool. Or a Ti Samurai! Wink




God bless America.

I've only had one all titanium watch - bracelet. A Seiko Kinetic (1st generation) SKJ048P1 I acquired back in 1997. It was like not wearing anything it was so light.

Gave it to my youngest son well over a decade ago. It has had 4 replacement capacitors over the years, lastly 3 years ago.

Still ticking?

I have a Kinetic I bought in about 1996. I need to check on it -- haven't worn it in a while.




God bless America.

This all titanium Citizen I got from Dave Truong 4 or 5 years ago probably gets more wrist time than any of my watches. So lightweight you hardly know you're wearing it, despite its size.
