I missed something in the Seiko-evolution and name-translation: Why is it called an Arnie?
'cause it's fecking huge?
Arnold Schwarzenegger wore the original Seiko H558 in many movies. Like Predator and Commando.
Thanks CJ, I also found an explanation of 'Arnie' here,
and a great video of the functions.
I loved that ARnie SOLar nickname posted awhile back.
Look at that! I did the maths!!

JLC day today
Is that the Fagliano strap ?
Thank you - it is. It is a little more casual than the JLC black leather. One of my favorite watches - love JLC!
ive been wanting a more casual strap for my Reverso since it wears well in a casual environment.
Last night I watched the first ever episode of X Files. I noticed Fox wearing an odd looking watch, so I froze the frame. It was a Waltham. This morning I did a quick search and found this link.
There are a couple interesting watches he wore.
That Waltham doesn't come up on Ebay or other searches. Maybe my Google Fu is weak this morning. I was hoping to learn a little more about that one.
Holy good score batman!
I am truly jealous of that! DAMN!
Fagliano strap sounds like some sort of illness. Or maybe some location in a galaxy.
When you install a bracelet with the typical deployment clasp, do you orient it such that when it’s closed the part you lift or release to open the clasp (the thing at the upper right side of the image below) is closest to 6:00 or do you put it such that it's at 12:00?
I’m finally getting around to putting my new Strap Code bracelet on my Alpinist, and checked some of my other watches to see how I had them set up and one had the “lift here” part at 6:00 and the other at 12:00.
(if it makes any difference, my bracelet has both the small “flip to unlock” lever (as shown in the image below) and the two “press on the sides” releases, which the bracelet shown below does not have)
As I think about it, it really doesn’t seem to me to make much of a difference, but I’m wondering if there’s a generally accepted “correct” way to do it.
The bracelet typically closes towards the body, or 6 o'clock.
RD is correct. In your pic, the 6 o'clock side of the caseback fits at the right hand end of your bracelet. I find closing the latch to be uncomfortable if the bracelet is reversed.
Sounds like we have have a unanimous decision - I'll install it that way.
Edit - and the next time I wear the watch with the bracelet reversed (it's a Turtle Seiko) I'll see if it's enough of an issue for me to change it to the the correct way.
There really is no "right" answer, just a most common configuration. Seiko is known to reverse deployants, and IWC does it sometimes too. I find it more difficult to fasten when configured that way. In fact, the first thing I did on my Cocktail Time was orient it the normal direction.
