Well, the Tudor Black Bay red or blue dream is over for me.

I tried one on yesterday, and it's just a bit on the small side.

Traditional round watches for my wrist need to be 42-45mm, I'm not 'gorilla' wrested, it's just wide and flat. Squarish cases I can go down to 38mm, but then the case shape takes up more wrist room.

However, I did have a good look around another AD showroom nearby, and I really liked the Bremont MBIII, and also the SM2000. Both subtle updates to the previous models that somehow seem so 'right'.

No rush though, I might be dreaming about something else next week!

i would like the snowflake so much more if it didn't have the power reserve on it. i have a deep dislike for 99.9% of all power reserves. i have no idea why they should be so prominent on dials.

Pretty much my feeling too, Greg. Still a lovely watch though.

I guess its subjective, but I like it as it is. I like that its titanium, spring drive, a complex dial and has a power reserve. If there were no power reserve, it would be too plain for me - which is why I don't like the other GS watches as much. Also whats up with the GS displaybacks - the Swiss ones at this price look 'better' probably (more decorated) but I'm not sure since pictures can be deceiving ?

downer, have you thought about getting a Grand Seiko ?

Had a look at the GS quartz watches too - quite affordable (relatively) especially used..

i don't mind the concept of a PR, i just don't necessarily like them to be the most prominent feature on the dial beyond the hands.

personally, i'd love a PR on the caseback or visible behind the exhibition back.

On this, I am with you. But only very few do it..
