Back to this one today...
I have just bought a Seiko SKX009J and I love it. I don't get a chance to wear my seamaster much so just wanted something I could chuck on and not worry about.
Great little watches those. Work very well on lots of different straps too.
close gas stations to me
Just put a NATO strap on this; better in the summer as it doesn't result in sweaty wrists and it's a lot more comfortable when swimming.
Pro Hunter DLC a Mil and then double the RRP? Blimey!
New & very pleasant surprise incoming today:
Love it - but wont the nato rub away the DLC/PVD ?
The watch has been through hell since I was given it five years ago, and it still doesn't show any signs of wear to the finish, so I'm assuming it'll be ok. Just to be safe though, I've ordered an official NATO from Prohunter as this one's a bit crap.
Are you on this list?
Impressed! Ive never seen a DLC / PVD watch stand up.
If you've seen DLC wear, then it's not DLC.
That's not the case, it's just that not all DLC coatings are created equal. DLC can wear off if it's not been applied well, for example
That's very true actually but I've never seen correctly applied DLC wear, and if it does then it's most likely down to poor preparation.
For the 40th episode of the Scottish Watches Podcast we got to chat with Ariel Adams from ABlogToWatch. If you like watches then I'd recommend giving this episode a listen - first time Ive posted about it as it is a stand out episode. Here's the link with player options inside. Have a great week folks! - http://www.scottishwatches.co.uk/20...ast-40-with-ariel-adams-from-a-blog-to-watch/
I don’t know a lot about watches but it’s the time in my life I think I should get a nice one and dump the Apple Watch!
I like the look of this, good buy?
Watchfinder will never be a good buy. Over priced with shady practices such as holding back spare links and selling them on eBay.
Where is best to buy then?
For that, walk into any Omega dealer and if they have it in stock try it on. Hum and haw a bit, rub your chin then say its a bit too pricey. See if they bite. Or say youve seen it cheaper online. See if they bite. Do this around now / end of the month when targets are key.
You should get a deal.
