  1. My first watch as a child was a small white faced manual wind. It had large green lumed numbers like a military or field watch. I loved that thing so manual winds have always had a bit of a special place for me.
  2. Basket Case is the old pulp horror movie in which a guy grows a deformed baby out of his side, isn't it?
  3. That looks very nice but the '1' numeral for 12 would drive me a bit mad.
  4. I am sorely tempted, but it would have to be the smaller version. Been so close to buying one this month but an Omega came up on my radar that I just couldnt resist.
  5. Vulgar but certainly eye catching. Case looks big enough to cook a casserole in.
  6. The LE Glacier Alpinist arrived to me today for pretty much the same price as the 197. First impressions are that the more subdued dial makes it appear a little smaller, it all looks very crisp and wears very comfortably and close to the wrist. It's giving the sense of being very versitile as dressy or casual. There's more I could say but it's been said a hundred times before in other reviews. So far I like it a lot. It's a bit unusual.
  7. I bought a Root Beer mod about a month ago, but the only thing changed is the bezel ring and it now has a crystal glass with a very slight edging. I bought it before realising Seiko were bringing out something similar but with a black to brown bezel. I prefer the black to brown-maroon that I have. I've no problems with that sort of mod but the mods built from scrap parts with a fake brand name attached are essentially fakes designed to gouge on the price.
  8. Ugh. The lume looks very cool though.
  9. That bubble would drive me nuts.
  10. Got a Seiko root beer mod sitiing on my desk for the last month waiting for a leather strap. It looked odd with anything else and i tried quite a few diffferent types of strap. A mid-brown/grey nubuck is coming in the post this week and finally I'll get to wear and enjoy this thing.
  11. That GS dial is very umm....Twin Peaks.
  12. I feel almost guilty to admit this at this stage in the thread, but I really like these a lot.the clean, simple styling hits the buttons for me.
  13. The desert model is appealing but I can't learn to love the hands; or more specifically, the hour hand that looks like a fist with pointy finger. Sometimes a similar tone to the hands can make them appear like cardboard cut outs. I'd be interested to see some real life shots of the dial.
  14. Is it the angle or is it thinner than the usual model?
  15. Blue Moon, Negroni, Raku, Sky Diving, Mockingbird and Fuyugeshiki in regular rotation on my wrist. I'm kind of keen on them. Movement is pretty basic but the dials are quite unique.
