Diesel Watches?

Recommended Posts

Someone talk to me about Diesel watches.

I've always thought they were pretty crappy fashion pieces but took one off a chap today as part of a swap and it actually feels very good quality.

Listed it on the bay as was the original plan, but I'm having second thoughts! Someone talk me out of it.

Not bad for fashion watches - I used to have a few before the bug really bit. My mate has been wearing the same one for years so pretty sturdy.

Diesel watches are decent quality, and their designs are a bit different from the norm, so I like 'em. I've only got one in my collection at the moment, but I wouldn't hesitate getting a few more. The one I've got is this:

My only criticism is the red hands are quite hard to see against the black background in certain lighting conditions. It would have been much better with a white face or white hands IMHO. I still like it though, the strap is really soft silicon so it's really comfy, and the colour is even more lairy than the photo shows, it's a real eye catcher. Definitely not to everyone's taste on here, but I can live with that :lol:

I've been mildly inquisitive for a while. The ones I quite like are called the "Big Daddy", or something. I've been keeping my eye on them but they seem to go for about £150 or more, pre-owned. Too much for what is an out-and-out fashion watch. Some of their less expensive watches are quite attractive as well.

I've had a few Diesels and I'd have to say the quality has been mixed so pick your model with care. These are the ones I've hung on to:

Yes, sorry I actually own one. The DZ7125 is an acquired taste but it's the size of a dinner plate on the wrist and always attracts comments when worn.Keeping the two main movements perfectly in sync is a PAIN though.

This one is a DZ1234 and features an animated LCD dial reminiscent of a radar sweep. A triumph of style over content but being a keen airshow fan I thought it was cool.

This DZ2028 features a polarising disk that allows you to black out the dial leaving just the hands on a black background for greater visiblity. Presumably. Who cares, it's cool too.

There are a couple of others I'm on the lookout for but I usually bide my time as you quite often find them with good reductions.

Never really thought about 'boutique brands' for myself but my son has a Ben Sherman watch which seems pretty good quality.

Never mind.

I logged on to e.bay to withdraw it this morning and it had sold overnight, so not meant to be I guess.

Well, it's different, but maybe not one of their more attractive offerings........... (same could probably be said of mine though!) :lol:

They're nice. I had one as a teen and loved it. Genuinely. It's nice to like a watch and not even think about whats inside. I wish that was the case now, it would be cheaper.
