commented on 3 Watch Collecting Philosophy? ·

I’ve given way too much thought to a three watch collection. I’ve found no way to rationalize reducing my current collection to only three. No matter which three stay, something amazing has to be dropped.

I've had a new watch break shortly after receiving it. I had to pay shipping back to Japan. I didn't make a video complaining about it. That's the nature of online sales. It seems that that is the only current complaint against the company.

The rest of the video seems to be a giant advertisement for your own online watch store. Now the click bait and insistence on watching the video makes more sense.

commented on Speedmaster 38mm ·

I think many people mistake the 39mm reduced for this new 38mm variant. They have virtually no relation to each other besides the words on the dial.

The older 39mm Speedy reduced was a perfectly sized, perfectly proportioned, dare I say vintage feeling watch.

This new model is short and thick. It’s side profile is more macaroon than wristwatch. I asked my AD to bring one in for me to try but I balked when I saw it’s actual proportions on my wrist.

Is the new company doing the same thing?

commented on SCAM ALERT ·

Is that click on the video so important that it’s not worth saying here? Give me a hint, a clue, a nudge. Otherwise this is all just clickbait that I’ve been trained to ignore.

I’m gonna need more than that before I bother to watch the video.
