commented on Why Tag Heuer? ยท

I have always had a soft spot for TAG Heuer as it was my first nice watch gifted to me when I was 18. There is a fair amount of TAG hate, some of it is probably warranted. Seems the post Heuer TAGs made during the quartz crisis diluted the brand a bit. The limbo phase lasted into the 20-teens with questionable movements and design choices. I think TAG is turning the corner with some great re-issues or updates on their classics. โ€ฆ.but I am a little biased

commented on Steinhart Ocean One Diver 39mm Review ยท

I have a couple of Steinharts and agree with you for the most part. I have the Ocean One Titanium below which utilizes the more original hand design elements. I also have the Ocean One with the Mercedes hands (Submariner homage). I do get a little confused about the ripoff label for using the MB hands when plenty of brands use the same non-patent hand design TAG, Citizen, etc. Both are great watches and have solid builds with great movements. A good way for enthusiasts to get into the hobby without Rolex prices. I bought both used and the resale market seems to hold value pretty well.

commented on Is 36.5mm to small for a 7 inch wrist? Was looking to buy tgis baltic chrono! ยท

Especially true if you start getting into vintage watches. I have an older Tag Heuer that is 36mm that seems tiny by todayโ€™s standards but was the norm back in the day.

Great call. Just added the green Alpinist. GADA
