    From what I've observed, the 6309 is very slightly smaller than the SRPx series. I own both a 6309-7049 and an SRP777K1...and routinely wear them at the same time...on the same strap/band...good times! :thumbsup:

    I wanted a Rollie homage without having to pay for a Rollie and from what I could research online, this seems to be the most well regarded. Since I got both of my SMPc's brand new with box/warranty for less than the cost of a stainless submariner, I just can't justify that expense for one watch. I scored the Davosa at 20% off, no sales tax, plus free 2nd day air shipment. I'll put it on a Vintage Bond Alphashark NATO, but also got the Spectre and a black with red edges too. The photos I've seen online look to be pretty spiffy, we'll see tomorrow. I almost got the Batman, but matching NATOs are few and far between. If I can find a high quality Coke bezel for it I might swap it in... provided the watch is as good as advertised.

    These are my current daily wearers, though the immanent arrival of a Seiko SARB017 may shake things up a bit. I'm particularly fond of the Electric Blue with the very rare "ghostly fingers" dial variation.......:p

    New daily wearer for work. Ridiculously heavy with the stainless bracelet, so immediately took it to the jeweler to get it removed and installed the Vintage Bond NATO...got the SPECTRE too. However; my black SMPc is my sweetheart...and now it will PSX_20171101_215819.jpg stay on either the Omega SPECTRE or Red Bond NATOs.

    I wish I was the guy testing the watches on the golf course!! Dream job!!

    I play golf with my watch on all the time!! I have a sm300 with the 8400 movement. After reading that article I am not too sure if I want to keep on doing that. 100G of acceleration is huge! That’s despite what they said about the 8400 movements ability to withstand those forces..

    That article certainly makes me feel bad about wearing my omega to the driving range!

    I think you're fine. The Si14 balance spring is far more shock resistant than the older ones.

    For me the questions of "Is it okay to play golf with a watch on" is a question where you would have to define what "okay" means. I think any watchmaker would tell you that their biggest concern is what the rotor does, not the balance spring. If the watch gains or loses a bit of time while playing golf, you can simply reset the time as needed. In the case of the automatic rotor, you have a mass that is intentionally designed to create a moment that is now being slung around with large forces it wasn't really intended to take on a regular basis. This can cause damage to the rotor or movement that is not just a temporary effect. This is why a manual wind watch is actually a safer choice for impact related sports than an automatic.

    I do play tennis with an automatic watch, but then again I can fix my own watches. I'm not sure I would really recommend people wearing their watch on the golf course on a regular basis. But as long as you know the risks and potential costs, then if you are okay accepting that, then have at it.

    Cheers, Al

    I recently wore my modern Ploprof 25 days straight. That is an all time record for me. Normally I am changing watches a few times a day.

    Watches in my regular rotation that I NEVER plan to sell.

    IMG_20171102_080830.jpg

    Watches in my regular rotation that may get sold years down the road. Years from now, like 5+ years. They are in the regular rotation, but honestly how many watches can one wear?

    My collection/rotation, most have been taking a backseat to my new speedy pro. I haven't worn the Oris in a while. IMG_1647.JPG
