  1. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    I work a few blocks away from corporate. Need me to expedite things for you?

    haha i saw that on their IG and thought it was some new sole they were making. I was like, thats ugly but whatever floats their boat. I didnt realize that was a destroyed Red Wing sole

    i was always on the fence about this. I primarily would buy and wear watches that appeal to me in terms of style and design over investment. Honestly, Rolex and most Patek designs are just plain boring in my opinion but they can get away with it because they are Rolex and Patek! That said, this old French watchmaker I used to work with put it very simply. If you get kidnapped in the Congo, a Rolex could secure your freedom. The Royal Oak was always one of my favorite designs also.

    I'd be curious to see if this stays true over time. My initial understanding is that the only time the difference is really that noticeable is in the beginning.

    Bakers Oxfords in red dog roughout. Had these since 2012 and they will soon go in for their 3rd resole. Thinking about that split vibrant 2020(?) Gloxi cut sole in white this time around for something different. Second sole pic isnt uploading. it’s basically bald haha

    Not much denim updates from me. Spent another evening at the park chasing my daughter around, going up and down slides and shit. Dad fades in progress. My daughter saw a kid she goes to school with and they were having fun until this kids neighbor shows up and suddenly these boys become assholes. This other kid kicked my daughter and I almost went ‘Ndrangheta on him. Once the blood rage cleared I just got the fuckers mom to take him away haha. Little bitch. Then I made sauce.

    the base movement is a Sellita movement, number sw-200. Oris probably embellishes it (decorates it) and calls it by their movement #. I dont know what additional things they add to it, if any

    So I did some training at Breitling in Connecticut where their US service center is. For most of their pilot watches they just pressure test with desktop machines. They simulate a certain Bar, I cannot remember the exact but more than any desktop diver would go, but without water. If any leaks occur it does this weird sporadic pressure release until its safe to open the unit so you can dig in a see where the failure was. However they had this special room where they had this beefy pressure tester that used both actual water and vacuum (i think this was the case, my memory is a bit foggy on the specifics so I could be wrong). But what I do know is the glass viewing port was super thick and you had to "batten down the hatch" like a submarine before you could use it. It was a wild sight to see and my guess cost many many thousands of dollars

    One of my Favorite watches I used to own was an Ollech and Wajs Caribbean 1000. It looked similar to that, as it seems that was the style for divers watches in the era. I personally love the look. Although I did tests and can guarantee the thing wasnt WR to 1000M. The crown tube was friction fitted to the case vs higher end divers watches that actually were screwed in. It passed the general pressure tests that most table top machines could test for but it failed a couple of times until I rigged up an epoxy solution.

    thats the old SF. Now its all young tech boi's "disrupting the system", building apps so people can spend even less time face to face and more time fucking around on a mobile device. its a shame.

    Gonna go park this right in the middle of the street where Volvo takes his fit pics and see how he reacts... all jokes aside, had to drive this Fiat for 2 hrs to my brother in laws house because he had shoulder surgery. Can’t say one of these would be my first choice for Bay Area traffic but if I lived In a country that embraced the peasant lifestyle a bit more then I would consider
