    Roland linked me with this page, so maybe you folks are interested.




    Update on the RGM Model 5-GMT-RS "Richard Sachs" Version — RGM Watch Co.

    I already contacted Roland. I will be in NYC in 2 weeks visiting family and attending the watch shows so I will have a chance to meet Roland and see the watch "in the metal".

    This showed up recently after a slight delay (thanks USPS). Apparently it sold out within hours of being released.

    The Long Island Watch "Islander Diver" has all the goodies: Seiko hand-winding and hacking movement, sapphire crystal, ceramic bezel insert, 200m water resistance, drilled lugs, and all SKX parts (OEM and aftermarket) fit if you ever want to mod it.

    It really is the watch Seiko should have made instead of the now discontinued SKX007/009/011. Even the new "SK5" is selling for $295 to $335 and is a lesser watch than the SKX that came before it (albeit with an upgraded movement).

    As much as I love it, this is probably another "catch and release" for me so PM if you are interested.


    Also, anyone going to the NYC WindUp Watch Fair next week? I'll be there Friday afternoon.

    I recently sold my Spinnaker Tesei Titanium, Seiko SRP777, modded Seiko SKX011, never worn Hamtun Nanok, and barely worn Casio DW5035 35th Anniversary but still wanted a beater watch.

    More Seiko modded watches. I blame my younger brother who is a fan of less expensive watches and probably owns 60 of them in the $25 to $500 range.

    Both mods started out as Seiko SNZF17 (aka Sea Urchin). Thy look great and will be even better when I get them back from the modder and can put straps on them.



    My brother's modded watch
    - DLW sapphire crystal
    - DLW ceramic 12 hour bezel insert
    - DLW silver chapter ring with minute markers
    - DLW Mercedes style hands
    - Seiko NH36 movement upgrade with black day/date wheels

    My modded watch
    - DLW sapphire crystal
    - DLW ceramic sub vintage black mk2 bezel insert
    - DLW silver chapter ring
    - Namoki mercedes style hands
    - Namoki Divemaster Black dial
    - Seiko NH36 movement upgrade with white day/date wheels
