In twenty years or so, the German language will be one, massively long compound word.

Slate. Or, as the French would have it, ardoise.

The one I've got on the way is not of the Sports line-up, and is still powered by the old 7S26.
Why? These simple 5s aren’t of the fragile variety. MACV-SOG personnel wore them in Vietnam. Hell, my paternal grandfather still has his Seiko 5, which he bought while working in Iraq in 1983 - the state-owned electric company that he worked for was there on a contract for Siemens, building new power lines around and in Baghdad. His Seiko survived engineering works in a hot and dusty environment, even swimming and cycling didn’t have much of an effect on it. And all the time it was worn on its original Seiko ”Fucking Nightmare” jubilee bracelet.

Yep. My point is about most 5s of the non-Sports line-up being more durable than they - in theory - should be. Seiko tends to have their watches deliver more than they've promised in the specs.koimaster wrote: ↑April 20th 2020, 9:16pm6619-8060, 7005-8030 and 6119-8100MKTheVintageBloke wrote: ↑April 20th 2020, 8:41pmWhy?

The seller (an authorized Seiko dealer, BTW), used the possibly least convenient option, that being a shipping middleman called B2C. Which means that they pick up parcels once a week, then they're queued to be sent to the final shipping company (DPD, DHL, whatever), and then delivered to the customer.
This sucks cock - it's basically a waiting line to a waiting line to a waiting line, and with the shipping companies currently being busier than during the Christmas season, I predict that the parcel will be stuck at least twice.
B2C is possibly the most hated shipping intermediary, and I haven't seen a single good review of their services. The guy used PostNL and DPD before, wouldn't know why he chose to use B2C out of a sudden.
