Having finally decided and taken a few steps towards my perfect (but pretty obvious/boring)3 watch collection (speedy pro, Reverso duoface and either then an Explorer, Sub, black bay or pelagos) I started thinking would I be happy with that.

Why can’t I just be happy with what I’ve got 😂🤷🏽
Admire the three watch collection size myself and actively trying to join you in that category. That said the Patek is simply awesome

Hmm, the PATEK PHILIPPE text looks slightly left aligned on that watch face.... so, solely on that basis and maybe the lack of second markers, I'm out :lol:

So why am I now looking at Patek Annual Calendars? 😂🤷🏽
I am reminded of the words of George Leigh Mallory who, when asked by a lady why people wished to climb Everest, replied:

“Because it is there!”

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Just loving this, saw an ad for it in GQ magazine. Lots of AP, Genta design cues. A lovely industrial feel but with loads of finesse; not cheap at £6.5k, though.

I'm a tool watch kinda guy; bezels and pushers for me. I used to dive, I used to climb mountains. I spend too much time looking at watches.

Love the idea of an ultralight watch and this really fits the bill. Zenith defy carbon. Amazingly the carbon case on the full carbon bracelet is only 65g! The downside is that going for the bracelet over the rubber/ cordura adds a painful £6500 :(

With a g10 that only gets the time right twice a day, I'm thinking it might be a good time to try an alternative that I've previously felt was too similar

Personally I'd prefer the khaki mechanical and one of these for about the same money

Or this instead of both
