Watches you just don't wear...


Recommended Posts

My Speedy Reduced sees very very little wrist time. 

2021-01-16_06-24-56

There's always something else that I seem to grab first. 

I'm hoping when reasons to dress up increase, it will get more attention but if not, I'll have to let it go....

The Auto version of that watch is soooooooo much warmer , that one looks a bit cold and its because of the painted semi-applied markers

I think that's crying out for a blue rubber or nato strap. 

I'd recommend giving that a try as the change could be dramatic. 

I have a NTH Amphion I just could not for the life of me click with. I wanted to like it but just couldn't put it on:

I put it on a couple of natos which made it come alive and now I have it on a grey Zuludiver and I think it's one of the most bad-ass looking watches I own

Same here - no events to wear this at,which is why it is in sales corner.

Your speedy looks great though.

@Bricey i’m relieved to hear it, at least in the case of the silly Rolex and the AP monstrosity. However, if somebody made the mistake of dropping that VC on my wrist I’d be over the hills and far away.

But you know what he meant, you old rascal!:laugh:

This one.

For the first twenty years I owned it, I wore it regularly. Now, it's a "once a year" affair.

And, I've no idea why :bash:

If I may be so bold .... the rest of your collection exhibits a certain charm .... this one is bereft .... Forgive me if I am speaking out of turn but that's my initial report to the situation ..... :thumbsup:

I just don't think it has aged very well, the small applied markers may have been well regarded at the time, but it's an aesthetic rather than a classic, I think.
