Aaron1 commented on Chronograph recommendation? ·

One chronograph that I absolutely adore is the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Gen 2 ref. 49150. It's an incredibly stunning watch and just impeccably made. I'm pretty sure it comes in budget, and it's just an incredibly capable sports watch. Definitely worth taking a look in my opinion!

Aaron1 commented on [IWOTD] Interesting Watch of the Day #4 - Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Square Wheel ·

Wow thats actually a really cool and innovative piece of design! I can't say I've seen anything like that! Its always great to see brands step out of the horological shadows with novel design ideas like this! I also love the finish on the dial, its quite unique too!

Aaron1 commented on The New Speedmaster Bracelet (Fitted On An 1861 Moonwatch) ·

That was a great read! I really admire the new Speedy, it was a great evolution of an icon!

Aaron1 commented on Homage watches vs Mirco Brands - Which Do You Prefer? ·

Its a tough one, if the microbrand can present a novel design that’s well made and well priced, ill take it over an homage brand any day. If they are being lazy with design and are just trying to be another homage brand then I will prefer the other homage brand provided they have been around a while (Steinhart or someone like that)

Aaron1 commented on Oris Carl Brashear Calibre 401 developing some nice patina ·

It's always interesting to see how bronze watches develop over time! I love the patina and how unique they can be!

Aaron1 commented on Tissot PRX vs Maurice LaCroix Aikon ·

Yeah definitely! I would go as far to say that no one has decided to go for the Aikon over the PRX!

Aaron1 commented on Tissot PRX vs Maurice LaCroix Aikon ·

The Aikon is a cool watch but its standing amongst watch nerds is hindered by the fact that so much of its aesthetic is derived from the RO and Nautilus. The PRX takes inspiration and then goes in its own direction, which is appreciated. Personally, I'd have the PRX all day every day. Its also far better value
