This Yobokies guy makes some awesome watches.

This is sooo clean:



I would probably change the bottom text to something more simple like "500M" or however deep the watch is rated for.

He can even add a sapphire crystal and nicer bracelets.

Yeah, I saw once you edited.

One thing I hate about the "lesser" Seikos like the Kinetics, is that the second hand doesn't like up perfectly with the second ticks. If you buy a Grand Seiko, then you get a special mechanism that makes the seconds line up perfectly. Actually, a Grand Seiko seems like a very old japanese man type watch. Unless he was more westernized in which case it would be a Rolex.

Yobokies offers a "super oyster" bracelet, which I would imagine being SS since it's an upgrade.

Here's an example of the sapphire crystal with a blue undercoating (better for underwater visibility, I think)

Just googling and reading random threads. I knew that he made nice modded Seikos, but I was unaware of his crystal upgrade and bracelet upgrade. That last Seiko that I posted would look insane with a domed crystal and nice SS bracelet, don't you think?

Is your boss going to be ok with you returning a van with those gouges in it?

With all of the nice mods, I'm guessing ~$400.

I have no reason to speak to either you or Albee, unless you keep bringing me up. I would appreciate it if you don't.
This sounds like you are upset with me, and I have to say, I really don't see why. Between a sale falling through and another person having driven your car, this is getting out of hand.

I was wondering about that, too. Possibly something she found, like a rock.
