I’ve run into a lot of these when I was inspecting fish filleting operations. The ones with the backsplash are nice because you don’t have to clean the walls unless you’re really messy, the problem is there’s a seam between the backsplash and the table. That is a potential harborage area for bacteria. Unless you really need wheels, they can be a pain too as they’re a harborage area and they get fucking disgusting. They’re a pain in the ass to clean. I don’t know what your regulations say, you might get away with gross wheels since they’re not a potential food contact surface.

I’d check to see if there’s a consultant you can work with to find the ins and outs of the regulations in the field and location you’re in.

You should also find out what kinds of sanitizing agents you have to use, I don’t know what’s required in AU. If it’s bleach, you’re could eventually have a corrosion issue even if it’s a stainless steel.

Then again I’m only a former FDA investigator, some around here treat me like I’m an idiot and don’t know anything about food safety.

They make a similar blue ti Gshock that’ve drooled over for almost a year now. Really well done.

On the other side of things, I think we as consumers of high end items need to be honest with ourselves. Once you get to a certain price point the returns on investment as far as durability and performance goes is not proportionate to the cost.


Sometimes you just like things because you like things.


I can't tell you how many times I've outperformed someone with a $2k pistol with my stock $500 pistol.


I can tell you sure as shit I'm not turning the compost pile when it's in the gooey stage in $400 jeans...

I think everyone has to deal with this conversation at some point or another, unless you're really a frugal person.


Which is odd because you'd think people would learn not to be judgy assholes.


I deal with this with guns, watches and denim.


The last time I had this conversation was with someone that had $3k golf clubs.


Seriously, if you have to explain it they're never going to get it.

Ericas straps are a lot stiffer and use a different method to attach to the watch. Her straps are basically a big loop like a NATO. Nicks straps involve looping the elastic through a metal keeper. There’s no material under the watch head with the hook strap

I vastly prefer the hook strap over the MN style strap.

I’ve been chatting back and forth with him and he’s a super nice guy. Fair warning though: he’s a one man shop and he does all his own sewing, so the wait can be a few weeks. All the elastic straps are to your wrist size so they’re not premade.

A little while ago he got Reddit famous so he had a monster influx of customers.

Just got a few of these straps after reading rave reviews about it. I have to say I’m not disappointed. This is easily my most comfortable strap

Looks like it’s going to be ok on its own. Thanks for asking.

They freaked out when they saw the break because I’d been walking on it for so long.

@Madame Buttonfly


Rolled my ankle running. Jody is beyond furious with me because I waited ten days to see the doctor and was walking around on it.

The train is the easy part. Navigating the city on crutches not so much

You used to be fun...  :D


Rest up mate, see you next time

Ohhhh, you don’t know the half of it...

I don’t drink anymore...

@Chris

I’m telling Jody you said that. She’s currently furious with me since I might or might not have been walking on a broken ankle for ten days before going to urgent care...

Dangit. Jody and I would've taken the train up but I just broke my ankle.

It's a shame. I like the 39.7mm size, and the ceramic bezel. I'm fine with the old movement, and then they had to fuck it up...
