Happy Holidays

Posted on 28 December 2006 by John Biggs

I’m out for the week in Warsaw, Poland. I’ll be back on the 3rd and hopefully I’ll be able to solve all of the problems we’re having with the site including those crappy ads that pop up entirely too much. I’m not getting much cash out of them and they are seriously annoying. Anyway, happy watch hunting. What did you all get for Christmas?

Posted on 20 December 2006 by John Biggs

fop.jpgChuck Maddox tears into a WatchUSeek fop Thomas in an excoriation of Omega. An example of Watch snobbery vs. realism at its best.

and I should know better than most of you.


However, if knowledge/experience is directly related to amount of stupidity exhibited he may have a case.

Seiko Ignition SBHL003

Posted on 20 December 2006 by John Biggs

seiko_ignition_sbhl003.jpgNice new Seiko caught over on WatchReport.

The SBHL003 is an interesting new addition to Seiko’s Ignition line. There are two things which differentiate it from other Seiko Ignitions. First, while the watch uses a classic analog display to present the time, the inner dial is an LCD used for timing and alarm features. Second, the stopwatch has a very precise resolution of 1/1,000th of a second (like the Seiko Sportura SNJ005 and the TAG Heuer Microtimer).

Balance-cocks Wha?

Posted on 20 December 2006 by John Biggs

coq-3.jpgBalance cocks are the little pices that fit over the balance wheel to keep them in place. They sometimes look like little chickens, or coqs, and have absolutely nothing to do with what’s going through your filthy dirty mind. Fascination has a huge article on the them, explaining that they were once so beautiful people actually wore them as jewelry. Stupid people.

I’ve created a forum for you guys to ask questions and talk about watches. I haven’t quite figured things out in terms of programming, but it looks solid enough. Please give it a try and let me know if there are any problems in the code.
