This is my favorite shade of blue CW produces. I’d love to see side-by-side of this and the new blue Sealander.

Re: F1 2021 Motorsport Thread

While I’d have preferred a different outcome, one can’t dispute that that was an exciting ending to watch!

Re: #tide strap comfort

if it’s made of plastic do you think it would be possible to shorten the strap then melt the end like you would a NATO? It might be worth a call to CS to see if they can offer some insight. Best case scenario they give you definitive information either way. Worst case they say they simply don’t know.

Re: What Car do you drive??

As much as I love my ETron as a daily driver, when it comes to a bit of fun / drive to the coast with the dogs etc… it’s a bit ‘soulless’. So, meet my new toy that I picked up yesterday - 13 years old, full Audi history, only 37,000 on the clock so I couldn’t not buy it. His name is Des! D93D5D3C-C...

Re: Happy birthday jkbarnes!

You are probably the only person I can recommend this to: read Kory Stamper's Word by Word: The Secret Life of Dictionaries, published in 2017. She is a lexicographer at Merriam-Webster, and among other things, you will discover, much to my chagrin and disbelief (and the author's), that the "w...

That’s a really good point! I hadn’t thought of that when I saw the news this morning.

Re: Happy birthday jkbarnes!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes everyone. Spending the weekend with my wife and step-sons. She and I are heading out for a nice dinner in a bit.

Any other word nerds who can appreciate the gift she got me?

Re: #tide strap comfort

I’m glad to hear the tide is so comfortable. I’ve got one of these coming as a birthday gift to wear with my C65 AMGT LE.

Re: The Curmudgeons Corner

Why do I let myself get sucked into pointless “discussions” with strangers online?! I have such a weakness for that. And to think, I almost rejoined Facebook this week. I can guarantee that won’t happen now!

Maybe Ferg will pick up a blue Sealander and post some proper pics for us! :lol:

Seriously though, he always captures watches are their absolute best.

Re: C60 Anthropocene bidirectional bezel?

I wonder if we can get the mods to change the new “thanks” function to “influenced,” that way we can let the influencers know when we’ve been influenced by them?

Re: C60 Anthropocene bidirectional bezel?

The viewers perspective, and the content creators perspective are different. I used to have a viewers perspective, then I started my own watch channel and became privy to information about how the watch industry works; information that the viewer is not privy to. YouTube is a marketing platform whi...

Re: C60 Anthropocene bidirectional bezel?

^^^ interesting information there! I’ve generally started ignoring online watch reviews as actual reviews because they all come off as simply commercials for the watch, offering little more beyond what I can find in the brands own promotional material. I tune in primarily to get a good view of the w...
