I do like a brown sunburst dial.

Whilst I like that IWC, I certainly wouldn’t ditch the EP to buy it.

However I would go with selling the EP to go for a Polar 16570.

Me too, even though in many ways I think the EP is a better watch. The Polar 16570 is just so cool.

Don’t think I have ever worn it as a “dress watch” with a formal shirt and suit. Shorts and a challenging shirt in warmer climates for me.

Both the Breguet and the UJ are superb and beautiful.

It was a style I would have really lusted after 6 or 7 years ago, but not any longer. Tastes change...
