Re: “I screwed up my nice new watch”: a thread to confess and sympathize with each other

Brand new Planet Ocean Chrono. Angular door handle. Yup, you guessed it. Whacked it so hard as I swung my arm I dented a pusher, jarred the movement and dinged the case. That was an expensive lesson.

Re: Show Off Your New Watch

Been going a little crazy lately with purchases. My 50th was last week and I new a was going to get a new watch for myself. My wife gave up trying to pick ones out for me years ago. Anyway I knew I wanted something that would have longevity in my collection. When I was 10 my mom and I gave my dad a...

“I screwed up my nice new watch”: a thread to confess and sympathize with each other

Got one of those smokin’ Eterna Tangaroa Chronos a couple of weeks ago. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200327/19ba30899dda54c0f7b5a5c0f049f2e7.jpg In taking off the bracelet to put on a strap i put a sliiiiight ding on one of the lugs. “I have green scotchbrite and fine grit sandpaper,” I though...

COVID-19 Impacts- No Conspiracy Theories

Is there a thread yet to discuss COVID’s impacts on the watch industry/retail? It feels too trivial to include in this thread, but there may be some interest (for instance, the effects of the various stay at home orders on the more popular retailers).

Re: Pattini Straps - Recommended

Right at a month after it was shipped, mine arrived today. Had to pick up from Post Office as signature was required (as noted above). First impression: seems well made, thick but flexible. Colors are a little different than I was hoping, but such is ordering online. Think it works nicely with the K...

Re: Pattini Straps - Recommended

Based upon the rec here, I’ve ordered a custom strap for my KonTiki Adventure. Ordered 12/9, shipping notification on 12/17, still awaiting delivery. Hoping the longer wait is due to the holidays or customs, although I did notice they initially formatted my USA address kind of weirdly, which I tried...

(Sold): gently used Seiko Alpinist SARB017 (green)

You know the watch. I bought this one new from Amazon in summer 2018 and have probably worn it 40 times. Time to let it go in favor of other additions to my case. In very good condition — biggest sign of use is a slight scuff on the side opposite the crown where it rested on the nightstand. Probably...

Re: Unboxing & Mini Review: Eterna KonTiki Adventure 44 (blue)

So I let it sit on my desk a few days and kept looking at it, and then decided to keep it for a while because I wanted to try some different straps, and there was something about it that just kept growing on me. Threw this fossil strap (one of my favs) on it and gotta say, works much better for me. ...

Re: Unboxing & Mini Review: Eterna KonTiki Adventure 44 (blue)

Nice review. Thanks for sharing!! One question regarding the warranty card: is it stamped? If so, do you know if the gooroo is an AD? Enviado desde mi Redmi 4X mediante Tapatalk The warranty card is not stamped and as far as I know they are not an AD for Eterna. I think there used to be some langua...

Unboxing & Mini Review: Eterna KonTiki Adventure 44 (blue)

Fresh from the Gooroo eBay clearout, the grey/blue KonTiki Adventure 1910.41.40.1429. Arrived in an Ashford box, no surprise there to anyone who’s been following things. No packing slip. Nice enough eterna box that showed a little wear, probably from storage and transport. Manual confirms the moveme...
