There's not caring about accuracy such as +- a minute a week, and then there's really bad accuracy to the point that you can get in trouble timewise. Seiko's 7SX6 movements can be up to several minutes off per day from my owning two of them. I could live with up to +-30 seconds a...
My latest, quick and dirties using my Nokia N95, the manual hand winder Grand Seiko SBGW005: Rather difficult to capture the true dial color, it's a strong cream color, and not as white as this pic shows. One of the beautiful things about this particular Grand Seiko model is its domed box crystal. It rises sharply above the rest of the watch case. My understanding is that it's quite difficult to create a box crystal display using sapphire, being that you have to...

So, in your opinion, what makes the n95-4 a better phone? thanks Actually they are largely the one and the same, the major influence for me to choose the -4 was the extra...
I had just bought an N95-4 myself (which I would suggest you get over the N95-3 BTW) about two weeks ago. Prior to that I had been a diehard "QWERTY required" on phones kind of a guy and was on an E70-2, and most recently an E90, until I realized the reality was, I was hardly texting or emailing or web browsing on my phone anyways. So I decided my next phone should be a "fun" phone. And the N95 is certainly a fun phone. I'm loving mine a lot, and the funny thing is,...

If you've been keeping up with the latest watch news, here's their latest monstrosity at 43mm, which has been subject to an extreme amount of controversy among Rolex fans. It has an "ORIGINAL GAS ESCAPE VALVE" and "RING LOCK SYSTEM" in case you...

Quote: Originally Posted by fordgtlover Someone recently commented that it takes "a bit more than a shake", but I disagree. That depends on the specific movement; some automatics are ridiculously sensitive to even the slightest movements. Seiko's 72S6, Spring Drive, and Vostok-Europe's 2432 movement come to mind. ETA movements on the other hand tend to take quite a bit of shaking to get going. I take my watches off once I get home, and I...
Is this combo meant for a quick jot or do you anticipate having some time and surface space to properly write something down? Fountains pens and a quick jot do NOT go hand in hand, because fountain pen ink typically requires 10 seconds or more to completely dry. There's also the fact that most fountain pens are capped or screw capped, which again does not lend itself well to a quick jot, the only exception being the Pilot Namiki Vanishing Point. I'd hate to see you trying...
Well, finally got one of the watches that was high on my wish list. The case has a very cool sandwich-like construction to it. And of course, the whole point of getting this watch, the awesome Seiko Spring Drive movement. The smoothness of the seconds hand is just unbelievable. Accuracy has been at about a second off over the course of a week and a half. Also picked up this for giggles, it's a VERY nice and sharp looking automatic diver.
Boy, I've seen some great ones lately, and I've fallen behind on posting about them. Despite having a cheesy title that hints at XXX action and yet has nothing of the sort, Solty Rei is a very nicely put together action anime with a strong jazz theme throughout the series. Jazz music is used predominantly throughout the series as background music. It's one of the newer action animes out there, and is well worth watching. Air Gear...I never thought I'd get excited...
