Great write up. I went with the Baltic because of the sapphire and it gave me Omega 300 vibes because of the sandwich dial. Depending on the lighting conditions, the square lume plots are not always visible. They’re arguably the only negative aspect (for me) of the watch. It’s otherwise been stellar.

Omega. I fully believe that they make better watches and they’re priced better too… they’re also available.

Donster_125 commented on Having a Grand Seiko itch! ·

Definitely want that watch. Just wish it came in 38mm. Unfortunately, 40.5mm sans bezel just wears too big for me.

Donster_125 commented on There goes the watch budget for the rest of the year.... ·

Beautiful watch! Love that smaller sizes are gaining in popularity these days.

Donster_125 commented on Would you compromise on an unobtainable grail watch or pass altogether? ·

This is worth reading more than once. With the money you saved you can buy some amazing “mid-tier” brands or modes and afford servicing them. I’d rather have wider, more eclectic collection than just 3 expensive pieces.

Donster_125 commented on Grail watch hunt postponed ·

You got your grail right in front of you. Glad your pup is ok. Your watch will come soon. As a dog owner who had a $3800 bill a year ago, I get it. We have bought insurance since then.

Donster_125 commented on Need More Nickel Free Dive watch options? ·

Isn’t the BB58 made of 904L steel? If so, it would have a higher nickel content than standard 316L. Don’t know if it’s your style, but maybe look into bronze options as well?
