When I started looking for a chrono, and also my first watch which I guess would fall into the "luxury" category due to price, I had set a $5,000 limit. Not much was blowing up my skirt. My requirements were simple. A chrono which was easy to read, and something which could take a little bause. I was considering a used Omega Planet Ocean chrono, and was also looking at a Sinn 936. Then I found this thing, and took a chance. It's now my primary watch, getting about 90% of my watch wearing time these days. I really love the watch. No ragrets!That watch is nice... love the blasted case.
Damasko wasn't on my radar but it is now.
I'll never own a Tudor. Wearing a Tudor says "I can't afford a Rolex".Eh, OK, it's a bit different. Is it worth almost the same as a nice Tudor?

The Air King is the only Rolex on my list from that family of watch makers. I find that to be a nice, clean, sexy bitch. I have no need for any other Rolex or Tudor.
Gsteve, he doesn't like your Breitling.
I get that... but with my aging eyes i cant see even good lume in the darkness. I got the b55 at half of new price and quite like what it can do. That being said the fenix 6 does everything and way more at 1/5 of what i paid for the b55
anything will keep tyme... nice to have a talisman with some meaning on your wristSame old watch I've worn every day (aside from rebuilds and Mexico travel) since 1997. It's currently 53 years old and was bought used by my dad around 1970 or so. It's not going anywhere.
Yes, it's absolutely a great product. If you are actually worried about magnetism. you can't beat this product.What's the deal on the MilGuass... worth the price?
ive been a watch nerd a longgggg time. I did the mathand ive spent over 175,000 on them. Not all at once of course but still.... Ive had a garmin f6 for a year now and i think im going to sell all my nice watches and say fuck it. I installed a easy to see and good looking face on it and really like everything its capable of. There is a f7 coming and will gladly buy it.

At almost $3,000 for that watch, with a Japanese movement which is most likely just a Miyota, no fucking way.
I totally understand. Who the fuck lets a watch get to that point? Maybe it was lost in a flood. I can only hope it's something like that. Putting that shit aside, it's beautiful to witness it come back from the dead.This shit actually pisses me off, It enrages me. I have to stop watching it
Polishing should be done every service. Make her look brand new.I totally understand. Who the fuck lets a watch get to that point? Maybe it was lost in a flood. I can only hope it's something like that. Putting that shit aside, it's beautiful to witness it come back from the dead.
What's your opinion on polishing out the case back and case? Are you for leaving the original scratches, or cleaning them up?
Also, can you explain the stem installation?
ZX6?Really had to "watch" what I was doing assembling that clutch. I have never seen one like it before. The pressure plate has groves and notches on it. So you have to put one steel and one fiber plate on the pressure plate before you fuck with trying to line it up with the clutch hub. The ramps on the clutch hubs adds to the assembly fun. Only place to get plates for it, is OEM because of the design of it.
