Re: Blue dial watch recommendations?

Out of your shortlist options, the Tudor BB58, although as a proposed 2 watch collection, would a pair of bezelled watches be diverse enough?

Re: Oracle Time x CW Teaser

Today was the day for these. I had been tempted to upgrade my free Oracle Time subscription in order to improve my chances with priority access, but in the event I decided against it.

Re: Oracle Time x CW Teaser

That is a cracking looking watch, although I'm still reeling from the news that people actually pay for Oracle Time.
