My minimalism is fighting it out with my covetousness: enthusiast or collector? My retirement fund looks on in horror. Rara avis, here-- female watch geek-in-(only five years on) training. Photos will be limited due to horrific lack of talent and pathetic inability to upload; thanks for understanding.
Fracascommented onNeed help with watch box pillows!·
Same problem…I think Jenni Elle sells watch boxes with smaller pillows bc of her own small wrists. Maybe she sells pillows separately—? Have been lazy myself about addressing this; sideways working well enuf

That said, one of the reasons I sold my GS was bc I freaked out about keeping my Zaratsu perfect, which made the wearing…stressful.
But I think I’ve moved past that now, thanks to Crunchers here, and so I’m thinking about another one up the line 😉
Fracascommented onDo you have a watch where the whole show happens on the dial?·
Another Seiko Presage, here. My 33.8 mm SRPF55:
It’s just a shocker how nice the brushed/laquer-y indigo dial is. Not to mention that the hands and indices have that gleaming, razor-like GS thing going on. Lotta watch in a little package and a big value.
I'm crazy for that Seamaster, and not a huge Ranger fan. BUT--if you can't do both, I think you're right that the Ranger makes a better GADA, due to its design. Although it's cool now to wear a dive watch any time, the Ranger is more understated and stealthy in terms of a suit or an evening out, if those are things you partake in.
