  1. I have this watch with a Blue dial and a 43mm case. It's a special one - chronometer and widely lauded by the watch review community. I'm toying with getting this green one, which is a 39mm case. Price-wise I think it comes in close to the author's suggested max. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  2. Just got this one back from the repairs company. Again. Having now had a new movement and most recently a crown & stem replacement, hopefully it'll enjoy an extended period of health now! Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah, gotta say I'm struggling with the concept of equating damage on my watches with fond memories [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  4. Having professed here my absolute dedication to dress watches of late, here's a diver that's got a bit about it imho [emoji846] The Seiko Black Series solar 3-hander, of course. On a black Nato rather than the stock rubber. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  5. Re the cost thing, I'm with you. I find myself looking at ever more expensive watches. Over the last few years I'd guess that my average watch purchase cost has risen by circa 400%, although to add a little perspective to that I was originally buying at the very low end of the market!
  6. I'm totally with you on this. A few years back I bought a Marathon JSAR, which is pretty much like having a wall clock on your wrist. Fast-forward to today and I'm hovering around the 40 mark - Maurice Lacroix les classiques is 38, JeanRichard is 41 (and I actually worried about 41 being too big). And as slim as possible. I actually went for the quartz MLLC rather than the mechanical version as its 7mm vs 11mm for the mechanical. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  7. I've gone from being a quartz-only sports/tough watch enthusiast to a mechanical dress watch obsessionist. Quite a change, I'm sure you'll agree. I think it started when I decided I needed something 'classy' for those special occasions. Now I wear my dress watches all the time, every day. As I'm writing this I'm in camo shorts and an old grey T, but with a dress watch on my wrist nevertheless! Have any of you guys been through a similar metamorphosis, albeit maybe with different watch styles? Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  8. This baby is so much more than a holiday beater! Enjoy [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  9. I read recently (can't remember where, sadly) from a watch repairer that watch winders are a bad idea due to the wearing parts down unnecessarily. He said that winding the watch once a month was enough to keep the oil circulated. I also don't see the point of a winder from the 'grab & go' perspective, as if you haven't worn the watch for, say, a few weeks, it's likely not very accurate anyway. Just an opinion that I read and happen to agree with. Since reading said advice I've swpnt a minute winding my lesser worn mechanicals occasionally. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  10. Can't get enough of this one atm. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  11. I remain firmly in the 'my watch is worth protecting above all else' category. I was having a tooth removed earlier this week. Lying there under extreme anaesthetic and with the dentist yanking on my tooth with a set of pliers my primary consciousness was that my JeanRichard 1681 Ronde Small Seconds was safely out of harm's way. When I take the bins out along our side passage it's my watch thst needs to clear the narrow traverse every time. That said, I wear my most dressy pieces every day.

  12. Here's the Dive Master I used to own. Superb watch [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  13. Yes, I've handled one. It's lighter than steel of course, so if you like a heavy watch this one probably isn't for you. If you can find one, the Mechanical Victorinox Dive Master in DLC is a beautiful alternative. I owned one, and regret letting it go tbh. It's steel, and while not prohibitively heavy, you know you're wearing it
  14. I find most of my quartz watches a pain, but for a different reason than everyone here. I'm MASSIVELY OCD about the hands on my watches pointing as perfectly as possible to their markers. When setting a quartz you generally find that when you push the crown back in it jogs the minute hand a little. Mechanical minute hands tend to stay where they are set.

  15. Really nice watch. Congrats from someone who also took delivery of a new (to me) watch. There's not much that beats the new watch buzz! [emoji846] Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
