Casual lounge wear, nothing wrong with that, Big M and I have a selection of matching outfits. 

We never wear socks with  soft boy outfits and our Viv loafers either. 

Rolex and Michael Korrs for the wrists.

I guess he has a nice fashion sense. I really like the outfit which he is wearing.

I think you are all being sour pusses over that article. Its a pretty decent summary intro for non-watch-types .... pretty thorough in parts .... 

Excellent, that's just what I need, a list of 112 watches I can't afford, organised in alphabetical order 

Posted Images

These things kinda take that 'seeking' out of the equation of personalised 'like' and introduce second hand 'knowing' to tell people what to do.

Personally, I would rather find my own grails thank you. If they come randomised and with no particular horological skill then so be it. I will probably be happier. 

I didn't get to the bottom of this "another" list I must confess.. but I bet it didn't have one of these..

Believe it or not.. THIS.. is on my personal grail list. 

If you can't figure out why, then you might just be reading too many of these 'top 100' watch articles.

We live in a world where people have lost the ability to "think for themselves", and find the need to pay for what is nothing other than an "industry" fashion brochure, to be told what is de rigueur, whilst those who fund it are having the goods churned out in readiness.

You sound a little bit like the narrator in fight club.

S#!+, I'm not meant to talk about that.

Social media influencers are evidence of this, it's grim.

When was the fashion industry any other way?

Because it will always be adventure time?

Well yes, but it was a little more contained and niche back in the day...15 year olds were mostly unaware of such nonsense.

As someone who has subscribed to GQ for over 10 years, it is certainly not aimed at people who are part of forums like this one. It is however useful for basic information on a variety of subjects and occasionally they will have some terrific informative stories.

I personally think the overall quality of the GQ magazine ( and supplements) has fallen over recent years, probably as a result of putting more and more stuff on-line. The whole of their watch supplement and other articles may tell you about different brands and a bit of history but not much more; that's where the specialist magazines come in.

It's amazing what you can find of interest (links etc) via Pinterest for free. Watches, fashion etc etc.

Thanks for that, I don't buy/read any magazines like this so it's good to see what they have say about what is 'hip' and what is 'sh!t'

I went through the whole list, and the only brand that made me go and check out a watch (which I can't afford) was JLC.

The Master Ultra Thin Knife, expensive, and beautiful. I've put £2.50 on the lottery...fingers crossed. :teethsmile:

Their Web pages are also free and as previous, they do have some interesting articles and reviews.

I have often claimed that I’m impervious to advertising. That is clearly not true, of course, but I tend to steer clear of most of these reviews, blogs and lists created by so-called influencers. I have to ask myself whether they are the sort of people by whom I would really wish to be influenced anyway.
