Which one?

One is no nonsense, and one is…well some lovable nonsense (cool dial, nato, LE save the ocean) but $400-500 more expensive.

Congrats on the great pick up - love the white dial!

CaptainRon commented on Omega Railmaster vs. Tudor Ranger ·

Omega has the better movement but I’d go with the Ranger. Although it’s simpler it still has some nice character and is a very versatile watch. That being said, I really like the older Railmaster and LOVE the vintage Railmaster/Seamaster Ranchero references.

Also, if you like a simple field watch with a bracelet I would seriously look at Sinn 556. I love mine.

Wow these match ups are getting tougher. D. Dornblüth & Sohn make beautiful handmade watches, but I agree w/HorologyNash - I’d give it to Habring for their high level and inventive complications.

oh no… 😬 I love black dial dive watches…I think 🤔

But: social media…my university was one of the first to get FB and…let’s just say I could see the writing on the wall and always have stayed away.

But I know everyone’s family work etc life is different and can’t blame people for spending time on social media. And I guess it’s just natural that antisocial media actors crop up within the existing framework. Maybe they will sell me a bracelet that says don’t buy a watch 😅

CaptainRon commented on What complication is most appealing to you ·

I guess out of those, a GMT (though I haven’t settled on one yet and have a few chronographs 😆) but…

Diving bezels - I like them aesthetically and use them all the time.

And of course moonphases can be beautiful. The Ultra Thin 👌

CaptainRon commented on The ultimate four watch collection, beat these if you can! 🤔 ·

Oh wait there’s no chronograph, maybe replace the Ultra Thin with this (too much 😅?):


ok so maybe this instead:
