    diameter vs lug-to-lug...

    I have 6.5" (16cm) wrists and I find that lug-to-lug is a better measure of fit (or overhang), since I'm more worried about length than girth (cue watch circle jerk porno)...

    Sorry for the silence (life intervened!)

    I bought a new watch from a UK vendor (and maybe manufacturer) and the price I paid was the same as advertised on the website (so, VAT included?)

    Thus,...

    Customs (Brexit) update

    Morning all!

    A few months ago, I asked how Brexit would affect watches going back and forth between the UK and EU.

    Recently, I experienced that impact.

    I bought a watch from a UK seller...

    Smiths gauges...

    I just watched the doc. Really fun conversation, with a typical British humility ("After three failures, Smiths delivered")

    I had a 1969 MGC and 1963 MGB. Both had Smiths gauges of DUBIOUS value...

    Definitely keep the soundtrack!

    Love the sparkles on the dial, but is purple the best colours? (I'm curious on hoe other colors would look, but maybe it's "25th anniversary royal purple"?

    500 vs 250 vs 2500...

    Eddie -- Love the dial.

    I'm wondering if there's some (not so) subtle way to bring 25 into the design.

    Obviously 250 (too few) or 2500 pieces (far too many!), but maybe replacing 3/6/9 with 2...

  9. VAT on USED watches?

    This I hate. A watch that's traded 5x in 2 years pays taxes 5x vs the same watch traded once? There should be a "used" exemption, but I guess they are worried about games. The Dutch (where I live)...
  10. Brexit: What will happen with shipping to/from the EU without a deal?

    I'm guessing customs will delay shipments and add taxes.

    Any idea of how this might work (fail?)

    White!

    Looks damn good. I've got the black (and 2 more white-dial Smiths), so it's always a struggle!

    How tite?

    Is Locktite 222 (or the Sinn equal?) permanent? Or does it just make it harder for unintentional loosening?

    Volume vs reputation.

    Yeah, there's a big difference between the brands watch people laud vs those that people buy.

    Seiko, like Honda, has a lot of reputation for a smaller (volume) company.

    Citizen's reputation,...

    Yeah -- like logging in at 02:00 on 2 Dec, 03:00 on 3 Dec, etc.

    How will people know when to login, if their lame is too weak??!? :welcoming:

  24. Getting used to it?

    So I will look at other straps in the future, but it's working pretty well now. It's a different fit than I am used to (like a bracelet, but leather) but I am not minding it b/c (1) the head sites...

    An economist walks in the AD

    Yep. Marketing. They (like Eddie) could raise prices to cut demand, but it's better for them to keep them low and "exclusive"

    Surely, they could make more money with higher prices? Kinda... but...
