Re: I like a bit of colour in my watches

Not heard of this brand before very much like a Czapek. I do like a bit of colour in dials myself had a look on their website I do like the red dial.

Re: MWC Watches?

I think the issue most people had was with some of the claims of links to various military around the world. I dont know if thats still the case but generally I have heard good things about their quality and customer service. Not owned one but dont see anything remarkably different from similar styl...

Re: Watch brands that speak to you

Dornbluth are one of the few brands that I can think of. There cant be too many high end brands where you can have frequent contact with the company and their watchmakers and have pictures of the build of the watch. I have also had Christmas cards from the company too.

Re: Italian watch brands that are not Panerai

Locman watches are Italian and have an Italian made movement in one of their line up.

Others being U Boat (Assembled in Italy I assume as Swiss movements etc)
Ennebi Watches (I think have a similar background to Panerai and Anonimo)

Re: Advice on saving for a big purchase

Maybe it would help if you went to see the watch and tried it on. FWIW, I've been through this this too :) Completely agree with this, the amount of times I have seen a watch online and wanted to purchase only to see it in a shop and think "Is that it?" OP is it possible to try the watch ...

Re: Advice on saving for a big purchase

I've never saved for anything for one reason - I could get hit by a bus tomorrow and I'd rather die having enjoyed my money than have it sat in the bank. If I were to save for something it wouldn't be from a company so disrespectful as to allow any of their dealers to make customers to turn up at a...

Re: Suggest Me a COSC / High Accuracy Quartz Diver?

Have you tried looking at solar/GPS watches? I think people get too wrapped up in the whole "Grand Seiko HAQ" thing and ignore other companies who do it just as good if not better. Citizen chronomaster for example with perpetual calendar. A much cheaper option would be the Casio Oceanus. S...

Re: Advice on saving for a big purchase

I have a black dial 6694 they have gone up in price like all Rolex but not so much that its excessive, what I am saying is while you are saving your funds you are not going to suddenly find you have to add on another several hundred pounds just when you thought you have reached your goal. One thing ...

Re: An Aquitaine colorway I’d like to see

Legibility looks a bit sus to me I agree, they would need to change the colour of the hands or polish/angle them in a way that they can stand out. White on white dial always looks nice in photos online but I think it would be a problem to use day to day because the hands would disappear into the di...
