I don't mind spending the money for a professional rebuild due to the fact that I've had this Seiko this long and she's served me well.

Thanks for your time, and great watch! Thanks for sharing (again).

Cheers!

Mr. Ridley does some amazing work.

I guess that all depends on YOUR definition of "expensive".

I wouldn't buy an expensive watch no matter how much money I make, as I see watches as jewelry, and in my opinion there are very limited circumstances where I think men should wear jewelry (wedding bands, etc). If it doesn't serve a specific function it has no place in my life.

My watches serve a purpose, they are all Dive Watches. As for jewelry, I never thought of any of my watches as such.
They are all black, they don't sparkle and have absolutely no bling. You gotta think, I'm an older guy, who grew up depending on his watch to tell TIME.
Besides, I feel naked without my watch on my wrist.

And all of my watches cost over $100, because they're keepers, that won't crap out on me when I need them most.

I don't dispute that you can have your own opinion, but what function does a wedding band serve aside from jewelry and a status symbol?

My wife would kill me if I didn't wear my wedding band. Wearing it serves the function of preventing my murder.

I don't wear a wedding ring. "Married" is written all over my face.

I don't wear one either. I know I'm married and my wife knows she's married. We don't cheat on each other.

Really? I replaced an original Orange Monster with one of the new, 2nd generation ones. As much as I liked the original, I think the new version is even better.

The new movement is unquestionably better, with hacking and handwinding. The way they added the hack lever to the movement is kind of nuts, but it's great that they managed to get it in there.

I was just talking about the looks, but completely agree on the other two points. The new crown is very cool, too.
