Surprised this one's already discounted given it's new. Could be an opportunity for someone who was after one.

Not sure whether this represents a good deal or not, but I remember this watch being mentioned fairly recently on here.

Staying with the Bremont theme at Chisholm Hunter, I have always quite fancied the U22 which seems to be available at a very good price.

Looks to be 20% off with a further Black Friday 20%;down to £2,492.80.

Very tempted by the super marine @20% discount.
I have funds but can only have 1 watch
Bermont supermarine @20% off
Blackbay58
Or Grand Seiko 9fquartz GMT

Tough decision :?

I tried on the black GS quartz GMT, SBGN003, last week and it’s a lovely, lovely watch. The AD gave me a loupe to inspect it and the finishing is beyond immaculate, particularly the hands which are so sharp they look like you could shave with them. It wore much like my BB58 but obviously a very different style.

Still might buy one in the new year but I’ve also got a perverse desire for a Panerai :?

Very difficult choice indeed,
I appreciate the craftsmanship/quality of the GS but couldnt do it, also designs a bit meh for me (but taste is very subjective).
BB 58 - solid and classy design and appealing brand. Very different to the GS/Bremont (have you tried one)
Bremont - I find the brand less appealing from a brand/cache/identity perspective but having tried on the Supermarine and the Jag was very impressed with how they looked/felt 'on the wrist'. Thick but seemed to carry it off.
Tough call but not a bad problem to have :D

SoPorsche You’re spot on regarding Bremont - that’s exactly why I have not pulled the trigger yet
And indeed a nice problem to have :D

I am going to try the GS next week before deciding between GS and BB58
