  1. I don't believe it is about showing off, as a generalisation the fabulously wealthy who can afford the type of timepieces we are discussing don't need to show off. For example the the AP Minute Repeater Supersonnerie at SF295,000 would not be recognisable as a watch of that value to all except very knowledgeable aficionados. If I was a multi-millionaire I would buy one and post it once a week in the WRUW thread :laugh:

  2. I admire the engineering which goes into some of these limited edition pieces but for the most part their aesthetic features don't appeal to me at all.

    I watch the videos as well and they often elicit similar feelings to @RTM Boy

    If money was no object would I buy one? Generally no - but I would consider something like this

    I’m trying, it’s becoming more frustrating than a pleasure, i think like some commented a long time ago I’m looking at everything and not reducing my search, just want to find that one watch where I’m like that’s it, I’m having that.......:russian_roulette:

    Just go to a Breitling boutique with your deposit and buy something, it is starting to get a bit tedious now

    It’s something I do think about as I like a watch with a bit of weight to it. I can’t remember what but I tried a titanium watch once, possibly a Corum, it just felt cheap even though it was far from it.

    It always comes as a bit of a shock when I fasten the Aerospace on my wrist, weighs next to nothing, about 50g on a bracelet!

    This is the watch I really feel in love with after seeing it in person at the omega boutique, I actually wasn't even interested in the watch going in. Wanted the speedmaster professional, but this watch just grabbed my eyes in person over the speedy. 

    I don't wear a full suit most days unless there's something really serious that calls for it, just a button up dress shirt, usually with a sports jacket and chinos with dress shoes. This watch is very sporty already as a dive watch, but the rubber strap makes it even more so. I'm not sure if it's appropriate to wear for this watch. I can see some rubber straps be ok like the aquanaut, who will say it's not ok to wear it ever haha, but wasn't sure about this watch. It's not too thick imo, and could probably slide under the cuff fine.

     

    What do you guys think?

    I think you can wear just about anything with smart/business casual, certainly no problem with wearing the Seamaster 210.32.42.20.04.001 !

    I`d have to disagree with you there, for me the least worst is the Laurent Ferrier &  it certainly aint no oil painting :rolleyes:

    You would have to shine a torch on the LP to see the hands to tell the time :laugh:

    Other brain waves on show include the Voutilainen with partially blued hands on a background of a blue dial :huh:

    And the Romain G with a dial so small you would need a magnifying glass to read it :huh:
