I suppose the question is whether TB4 and PCIE 4.0 is worth losing out on the extra RAM and storage then. I suspect for most average users,...

Good deal but most importantly, where was Gondor when the Westfold fell?
02/06/2021 - 15:12
No 5G unfortunately - so if 5G is an absolute priority for you I guess you could do worse than the Motorola Edge.

Honestly, at this price, I think the Poco X3 Pro is a better buy (arguably better software support, faster processor - Snapdragon 860 vs...

I've got the Stormtrooper version too but my experience with the O-rings is that it's mostly the same feel (~90%). Again YVMV - I had an...

Completely opposite in colour tone and general vibe I think - the SRPE71 feels more like a blingy watch (though less blingy than the rose...

Seiko 5 Automatic SRPE69 - $270.71 + Delivery (Free with Prime) @ Amazon US via AU
Fancy an all black sports watch (even the lume is black) with a reliable movement that will probably outlive you and your offspring? Here's...

I've got them in my Lian Li 011 Mini - acoustics wise they're pretty quiet, and they seem to be great at getting heat out of the case...

To be fair - these are daisy-chainable fans with pretty good RGB.
12/05/2021 - 10:12
The price is good but only one guaranteed software update:...

Good finds! I've posted it here as the grey dialed version never really goes on sale (it's $325 on Amazon).

According to a certain deposed executive, this would be more suitable than a Cartier.

Seiko 5 Automatic SRPE51K - $299 Delivered (RRP $499) @ Prouds
Prouds is having a sale on this beautiful Dress-KX - it doesn't appear to be available elsewhere in Australia (even the local Seiko...

Yeah agreed! the closest we will come to an affordable blue Alpinist is the blue bezel-less Alpinist (SPB157). Myer was having a 20%...

Well I think value can be subjective as well. For $699 / $789 (the original sale price), its amazing value. You're getting a Japanese...

Ask and ye shall receive it seems!

This watch is also a good alternative! Citizen AU1080:
17/12/2020 - 15:28
Well it's got a standard 18mm lug width so I've swapped mine out for a mesh band, and I've also got a perlon strap for those warm summer...

I've got both the blue dial and the white dial versions of the watch and can confirm it's sapphire! It's expressly stated on the labels and...
17/12/2020 - 15:26
The listing might be wrong! Elsewhere on the web, it's said that it's sapphire glass rather than being mineral glass.

You could take a look at the Citizen AU1080 (comes in white, black or blue dial options): link to an example. Otherwise, if you want...

@starbuy Will you be having any more stock of the SRPE31, and any chance that you will get the new compass-less Alpinists in soon?
