Hypothetical all Titanium Collection?

Some people love titanium. Some people think lightness=cheap. If there is a material that can make my watches lighter without making them less durable...

commented on What鈥檚 your next 3 watches?

I鈥檝e slowed down my purchasing to about 1 watch per year now. I am really determined for my next two to be a ETA powered Pelagos (or possibly a Pelagos 39, I keep going back and forth) and a Doxa Sub 300 Carbon. That鈥檒l get me through 2026 so not sure about a third haha

commented on Is it watch and wonders time?

I find it interesting that they introduced a solid gold BB58 on bracelet for $32k but didn鈥檛 make that METAS certified. Either way the BB58 GMT seemed to be the only thing I鈥檓 super interested in. I think I鈥檒l wait until they give it the 5 link and possibly the S&G treatment. My biggest letdown was no update for the Pelagos line. I was hoping for a master chronometer Pelagos

commented on Which strap are you wearing on a daily basis?

For me it is a good mix, but probably in order 1) Nick Mankey hook straps 2) OEM bracelet 3) natos 4) leather 5) rubber

commented on What will Tudor release?

I鈥檓 hoping for an update to the Pelagos 42 since it hasn鈥檛 been touched since 2015. Metas, thin it down a touch, make the clasp titanium, keep it matte with the indexes cut into the rehaut

commented on What's that one watch?

If I won the lottery I鈥檇 probably buy a VC222. Short of winning the lottery I certainly won鈥檛. A lot of other places I鈥檇 spend $70k. Right now I am saving for a 2-liner (eta powered) Pelagos that I鈥檓 hoping to pick up next year

commented on Doxa release sea emerald 39mm

Looks great, although I think I鈥檇 still go for the sub300. The reduced thickness is a great improvement, but I just love the domed crystal of the sub300 and it wears much smaller than 42mm

commented on Visiting another Rolex museum in San Antonio Tx.

I played the game to get my Explorer, and I absolutely love it, but I don鈥檛 think I鈥檒l be going through it again. Lots of other great watches that can be bought with a better customer experience
