Re: Do you enjoy pronouncing watch brand names right? Or wrong? [emoji3]

Seiko’s “Prospex” gets miss pronounced all the time on YouTube. Most of those guys pronounce it Pros-pex. For the record, it’s Pro Spex. As in professional specifications. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Why didn't they spell it ProSpecs. The Prospex X logo is actually a PS….hence Prospex :grin:...

Re: Cool list of micros…

Weird list. Sounds more like paid promotion. Some of those brands I have never heard of, one of them is not a microbrand at all, then some of the actual brands that help start the microbrand industry aren't even mentioned. Not a micro- Lum-Tec? SAS not in the list. Aegir. Maybe not included if have...

Re: Cheapest Grand Seiko SBGX093 I have ever seen for sale $1500

That's a stunning watch.

I created a reddit account with intent to list on their sales forum. Then made comments in other forums. Banned within about 2 weeks of creating the account lol.

Re: Speed Limiters are coming or rather are already here

Almost got popped at 0130 this morning but, thank God for radar detectors. Saved me a serious fine and denied my lawyer another contingency. Deserted road no other traffic and only 30+ the PSL. Perfectly safe and not endangering anyone. Speeding tickets are generally just a revenue generator as are...

i use regular old school traps. the glue traps have had some legs left behind where the mice chewed them off. put peanut butter on the traps.
Ok; will switch over to all spring traps.
Good call. Losing a dog or local hawk/falcon to this would be horrible.

Re: Inside or out?

Always wear watch on the outside of my wrist. My spouse cooks a lot, so always lots of pots etc. to wash. Too much pot vs watch risk if the watch is on the inside of my wrist.

I decline to comment on the other topics. Too much information. :fro:

Re: Citizen’s Promaster "Orca" Diver

I remember another reason why I sold my Orca. The bezel action was really loose. Hopefully they have corrected that. It's a really nice looking watch, though kind of oversized.

One of my all time favorites. Sold my original Orca for a nice profit years back.

May have to check these out; perfect summer beater.

Thanks for sharing, Tom.
I think the high resale price was why I sold mine too. I'd definitely wear it if I still had one.
