Insert always has been meme. Here’s hoping I can pick up a 16570 at some point in the next couple years at a reasonable price point. Stuck in the position of wanting a hyper specific sub-reference that only pops up occasionally so hard to not pull the trigger when a good example comes to market, but the 2x markup vs 3 years ago has me holding off

You guys do realize that watches werent popular before Hodinkee. They ruined the whole watch industry from a consumer perspective

What’s the best way for me to have unlimited data/international calling when I travel to the EU this year? I usually just pay the $10/day Verizon charges me if I use my phone but data is capped or it slows down at some point if you go beyond a specific gigabyte.

Considering a move to NTT Data in a healthcare consulting role. Mixed reviews in the bowls. Major concerns are bench policy, staff aug roles, 2 week PTO, and high turnover due to job dissatisfaction. Recruiter and mgr had great things to say around growth and opportunity, which doesn’t align with feedback from the bowls or Glassdoor.
Understanding things have changed there in the last few months, I need un-biased advice from fellow fish who have recently joined or can speak to recent changes

I’ve luster over a Tudor BB for idk 5+ years and was probably really drawn to the BB58 when they came out. Wound up getting “jumbo” date just on eBay and it’s been my nicest watch. Daily is a Garmin fenix 5 plus right now (which I love for other reasons)
I have cash now and trying to decide between a BB58 in either option both navy and black look great or going the BB black and navy as kind of a best of both worlds. Opinions on either ?
