The Hirsch would definitely work. It's just that I'm content with the bracelets for now.
The Tuna, the Fieldmaster SBDL021, and the new SRP637 are all 46mm bezels and they all play the same size. For me, they're all keepers. They all have different bracelets, which is nice. I just wish I could fit one with the Hirsch Extreme, but I'll wait.

The Tuna stays.
This model and similar ones is already settling around 300 on eBay and Amazon.
I heard that the flu shot was a bad match this year. A few days later, my twins had the flu; then I did. My wife has avoided it, thank God.
For watch enthusiasts with a sweet tooth for Seiko, big lume, and large timepieces, these are good times. Seiko is coming out with a line of affordable, large divers with Tuna shrouds. Case in the point is the $300 Seiko... Continue reading

Thanks, Thomas. I'm slowly getting better. This is on the short list for worst flus I've had. I'm glad it didn't hit me during a later time in my life in which case I might not have made it. What's sad is my flu shot proved useless this year.
There is a silver dial watch that Matthew Rhys wears as he stars in The Americans. I'm guessing it's a vintage Omega, but I don't know for sure. Anyone know? Continue reading

Our family and I got the flu shot as we do every year; however, this year there is a virulent strain of flu not covered by the shot, and I presumably got that flu. I'm on the mend though I currently have lost my voice.
This is one of the worst flu viruses I've ever suffered. If I were in my 80s, it may have killed me. I feel better today. I still have chills, sweats, and cough, but I see a light at the end of the tunnel.
Since I had twins 5 years ago, I've become more exposed.
I believe it's going to take 2 weeks. Thanks, for the info.
I pulled the trigger on a 299 dollar Seiko SRP637 48mm Black Monster. It's a new model with the same movement as the Seiko Sumo.
I bought one for 299 from same seller. Thanks.
My twins had a five-day fever last week. Today is my fifth day and I feel worse today than I did yesterday. I heard this flu mutates and is especially virulent. I haven't been this sick from the flu in... Continue reading

For Seiko Monster freaks like myself, the Seiko SRP637 is a must-buy; however, I'm waiting on this to see if the price comes down a bit. Related articles To-Do List for 2015 When You Tighten a Screw-Down Crown, Do You... Continue reading

Sea Hunter pic lost when my 2008 Apple crashed. I took some pics recently with the Megalodon but I didn't like the way they turned out.
Culture Code Lesson 6, Chapter 11 and 12 One. What is the history of rebellion in American politics? We replaced a British king with an American President, a rebel who led the charge. We are an adolescent country and we scorn father figures; instead, we embrace rebel figures. In America,... Continue reading

Culture Code Lesson 5 Chapters 9 and 10 One. What is an “alibi”? When our reptilian desires have no justification for our fulfilling those desires, we force a “justification” or what we might call a false justification for acquiring things we don’t really need. We call these justifications alibis. We... Continue reading

I used it for approx. 7 years before it broke. I no longer do this exercise. While my hands are okay, too many people I trust warned me that the repetitive motion can cause long-term risks such as arthritis and other ailments. I get enough grip strength from my kettlebell workouts.
It's a shame the speakers on both models are so horrible. Otherwise, I'd be interested in the PR-15.
