Seriously tempted by the FORZO Daytona Enduratimer Chronograph Watch | Vintage Panda Dial

The ONLY thing making me hesitate is the orange on the top of the seconds chronograph hand - if it was red then I'd have one on the way.

I had said no more mecha quartz/quartz but the pale blue version (unavailable) is really very nice indeed. Thanks for bringing the brand to my attention!
My son likes the Foggy but having recently acquired a Breitling Top Time Corvette I'm not sure in need of 2 red chronos 😃

Funny how the little things can sway us hey. It’s the lack of the usual red that I like about that one

Oh yes :thumbup: the devil is in the detail :wink:
...I think that a red tipped chronograph hand (like on the blue versions) would work well with the red EnduraTimer text on the dial.

^^^^Tough choice, sadly I don’t travel enough for the two time zones. Probably the triple date on top if it were my choice. Is that an annual calendar?

I thought it was “just” a Triple Date but from their website

“only requires an adjustment every 122 years”

^^^ always find that type of marketing copy amusing! :)

122 years. I think not. As an owner you would need to adjust it on a regular basis, if you like your timekeeping to be anywhere near COSC. Last time I asked about typical timekeeping when trying on a VC the sales manager looked a bit put out. She had just given me the “Geneva seal” spiel and then when I asked about timekeeping muttered something about “approximately 1 minute a week” :shock:

I think the reality is most don’t buy true high end watches for the accuracy of timekeeping.

Good looking pair of watches though. Something different to a normal case shape. :thumbup:

Pale blue launched today (with red accents) and ordered... yes I know I said no quartz but its a little Xmas purchase for myself and a bit of fun! Didn't realise Forzo is part of Geckota!

I think I like the cream and green Forzo Drive King best of the lot. Looks very smart indeed!
