New, smaller Doxa (39mm) - what are you thinking about this?

So Doxa have just released the Sub 200T, a 39mm x 41mm x 10.7mm version of one of their most iconic designs. I never owned a Doxa despite admiring the...

Calling all London-based watch sellers!

I've finally reached a point where I'm looking to sell a few watches and my preference would be to do this analog-fashion via a bricks-and mortar busi...

I see watches... Everywhere.

FYI/FWIW - if this being too dressy is a concern, there are versions without the diamonds. My wife (not a watch person) has fallen in love with the similar Longines Dolce Vita Mini (pic below) which she feels threads the needle between dressy and understated. And because she likes that the bracelet reminds her of a disco mirrorball.

commented on Do you think I made the right call? ·

100% looks like the right call to me - and I love the 40mm Explorer. I would say the 36mm OP is an objectively better fit for you and a more interesting and subtle watch that dresses up more than the Explorer so is even more versatile (and less common).

commented on This watch in ONE word ? ·

With both great respect for what went into this and someone who likes to be able to tell the time when I look at a watch I have to offer two words: 'Staggering' and 'Illegible'.
