Re: Rolex AirKing - had the call

Re: FLE 2023 Launch Announcement

I thought, with my latest edition, I had found nirvana. Of course there is always something else out there on the “if only” list, but those usually involve a lottery ticket. A obviously well thought out and VERY special piece with the usual CW value factor makes this a no brainer for me. Huge congra...

Re: Heavy watches and an ageing wrist

I remember a number of years ago trying on my first titanium cased watch. It was too light. I thought it felt cheap. Now, although I still love it, my ACAN feels like an anchor on my arm.

Re: A subconscious decision

I think it is the coming of a realization such as the one stated in the OP, that can be one of the most satisfying aspects of the watch collecting rabbit hole that we are all, to one extent or another, involved in. A moment of clarity, if you will, that brings it all together. Congratulations, :clap:

Re: Why wouldn’t you wear this watch?

The other watch I have my eye on this morning is a 1970 Tudor jumbo Prince Oysterdate. Things could go either way! :lol: You would like an Oysterdate of one form or another. I find these vintage ones are very dependent on condition, though, and dial choice makes a big difference. I found my gold/ch...

^^^^Perhaps another Oris? The Aquis Upcycle comes in a rainbow of different colors, and a 36mm size. :yes:

Re: WatchGecko and CW collab?

I like it. Kinda bright and cheerful. At the same time, not exactly for me personally. But I bet they sell out in a jiffy.

Re: Your “defining” watch?

I’ve been avoiding responding to this question since I first saw it posted, as I wanted to be sure I wasn’t falling into the “last watch purchased is my favorite”trap. I was born into a small family farm, and have had a wrench in my hand since I first learned to ride a bicycle. I grew up repairing f...
