    Ha, yea, I saw that 'Terra Corsa' floating around the internets a couple of years ago. I recall there's a video of it too that I'm sure a quick Google search would turn-up. My concern with taking...

    I've always been mildly interested in Nixons, especially their 'Elite' models which use a Swiss ETA movement, but I find them a bit too fashion-oriented for my tastes. I'd be concerned about spending...

    Yup, I agree it's impressive that Orient is able to offer in-house movements at the prices they do. Having said that, the ETA 2824-2 found in just about anything Swiss that isn't a Rolex and/or over...

    I'd never spend any real coin in the black market; you have no idea about what you're actually getting, where it's been, or who you're getting it from.

    Nah! Just like motorcycles, it's nice to have a variety. I'd rather have a $10,000 sportbike, a $5000 dualsport, & a $5000 standard out in the garage than just one $20,000 Harley...

    I have spent as much as $8000 on a Rolex Date-Just, as little as $250 on a Seiko Recraft. My only criteria is that a watch must have an automatic mechanical movement; no quartz!

    The suspension of the SCG is what makes it lower. It's got less travel & a lower centre of gravity so the bike's not going to comply with the road, or flick from side to side, as well as the other...

    I love kickstarters! Here I am kicking over my '72 75/5. Having said that, there's no need for them today. No point in dragging a starter motor AND a kickstarter around!
