  1. Can we really trust "trusted dealers"?

    So you're background checking the TD's? Maybe you should go and buy a nice Seiko instead of a replica. You obviously aren't comfortable with the process.
  2. After some part swapping, and around an hour of frustrating work with removing and re-fitting the springbars, I have finally replaced the bracelet for a strap. This wouldn't have been possible without a generous donation from @Daffy of a strap and deployment buckle, which allowed me to transplant the buckle onto a strap I ordered next door. What do you guys think between the two? Ideally, I could swap between the two frequently depending on what I wanted that day, but with the hour I just spent doing so this time, I can't see this happening too often.
  3. Tempus Machina replacement bezel

    Sounds like you just need an insert. Email some TDs with what watch you have (and factory if that is known) to see if they can get the part. Many members have gotten single parts from TDs, so there's a good chance they can source you a replacement too.
  4. What's the size on the 3rd one down (the round one)
  5. People have negative opinions about every rep watch for various reasons. All that matters is if you like it... if you want an all gold model, go for it
  6. ts-watches

    If you don't see them on the TD list, then they aren't a TD.
  7. This arrived yesterday from a TD next door and I snapped a few shots that night. After getting some wrist time today, my general thoughts are it's a great rep even with it's shortcomings. The model I received was updated from the model shown on the TD's site, which was a welcome change due to the updated spacing in the bezel rubber, as well as updated back lug engraving from the old "Stainless Steel" wording, to the correct "Titanium" one. Its a large watch, coming in at 45.5mm, but fits well with the lug shape and the thickness is similar to other large diameter watches. Case engravings are crisp, and the orange bezel rubber is clean and fills in well compared to the gen. The movement decoration has all wording spelled correctly (which was an issue with past models), and looks the part, even though it will rarely be seen. The bracelet is hefty and feels secure when locked down, and the engravings on it are similarly crisp like in the case. The multi colored lume is average for a rep, but looks to be applied cleanly and evenly. The grey dial looks as good as it did in the promo pictures, but lacks the luster compared to when I tried on the gen in an AD. For a rep, this is acceptable, and expected due to the different dial materials used between the gen and rep. All dial markers are even and, aside from the slightly misaligned chrono hand, everything lines up perfectly. The chrono also works perfectly, due to accidental hitting the pusher when adjusting the bracelet upon arrival, which ran for several minutes without issue. This model also features the black balance wheel as per gen, as well as a functioning minute/second combined subdial as per gen. Although this feature won't get much (if any) use, it's nice to have something more mechanically similar to the gen.
