Re: Pet peeves about watches

1. 24-hour/sun&moon subdials. It's just pointless clutter to me. 2. Dates on subdials. I include retrograde style. 31 is way too many subdivisions of something that small. 3. Huge watches. Or ones which have a decent width but are needlessly thick. 4. Big, filthy rich watch companies which don't giv...

Re: Codek Spiral - official MOT watch?

Is it actually an elabore grade 2824?? That admittedly was an assumption on my part when I saw it was regulated in 3 positions, which I shouldn't have done. And actually, I see now that the regulation is done by someone in CA, so I was likely completely wrong. Incidentally, do we know which company...

Re: Here is why you shouldn't buy a Ginault watch, and more reasons why WUS is shady

Well now, this is an interesting little drama. I haven't had time to read the full report, so I can't comment in depth. What I do feel fairly confident in saying is: -If someone uses fraudulent methods (such as false names for registration), nothing else from them should be considered honest either....

Not sure if I'd trust the quality control in the country of manufacture. :lol:
It's been a secret goal of mine to produce a line of Swazi-made watches under the "Nadir" brand. Curse them for stealing (half of) my joke!

Re: Post a Picture of Your Pet

How old is she? She looks like a pup still in that first pic. Seiko is a male dog, meanwhile 11 months old. Dogs grow up so quickly! And old. :/ Meanwhile, I have no idea how I got the notion he was a she. I hope he can forgive my dreadful faux paw. Couldn't figure out why he looked somewhat unusua...

Of course.

That's the data that's bad.
Erf. How'd that happen? Did you try applying copious expletives or percussive error correction?

Still working on things behind the curtain. I could disable the board until I'm done, but I don't really want to.

Things will look funky from time to time until I'm finished.
