Turkey Time!

18 lb Turkey is in the smoker at 2240. Will be a juicy and delicious bird at ~ 0800. The Speedy chronometer is set as a back up to my Traeger thermome...

You ain’t that big a hitter that this should be a concern.

I’d get the Eberhard.

I hope it comes back. Note that it’s selling point was the faraday cage making it anti-magnetic. It’s now much easier to increase anti-magnetism w/o the cage, and the cage increases the thickness of the watch.

The Air King shared a case with the Milgauss, but the new version ditched the cage and slimmed down. Where does the Milgauss fit in vs the current Air King?

I would recommend going to the AD and trying some on. I think I will be getting my first Rolex next year, but will be trying some on this fall prior to officially placing my interest.

It took we several years to realize this was the way I NEEDED to collect.

Is he preaching that people should be modest and humble in their life? I was not aware of that.

Folks sure are trying to do the gotcha I suppose.

commented on Whats the most versatile watch? ·

The Speedy has a robust 50m WR, but I don’t wear mine IN THE WATER. I would want something with 100 m WR.

Dive watches are great, but you are limited on dressing up (my wardrobe isn’t impacted).

The Rolex OP and Explorer are the model GADA watches.

I like the Aqua Terra a lot for this in a similar price range, and for a GADA, I wouldn’t go over the Rolex price point.

Cartier Santos doesn’t work at the gym.

Longines Spirit is fantastic as is the Sinn 836 and the Ball Engineer III Marvelight at the next tier lower.

Going down in price, Hamilton Khaki is too sporty and Tissot Gentleman is too dressy.

The new Citizen Tsuyosa are nearly ideal under $500, but only 50 m WR.
