Do you spend more time looking at photos and videos of your watch than actually looking at your watch?

It surprised me as well. At first I thought it was a bit too brutal but when I could inspect details, especially closer around the brushing, it had a very refined sensibility. I see the 1950s, 1990s, and 2000s in the piece. Kind of timeless?

So far I'm nonplussed. My WatchGecko are pretty much on par. The cloth one watch carry bags they come in are cool and clearly Adrian had a quality product. I think the colors are the right tone too. They work better for me, on my 6.25 inch wrist when the watch is bigger than 36mm since I need a bit of bulk and lug to lug to catch the excess for the way I like to wear a NATO.

Yes and the Air King is comfy but has more heft. The Formex has the floating system and the bracelet is basically half links. The C.W. is light and comfortable.
