Miami Baby! A two watch mini-collection to celebrate the Sunshine State!

Hi Everybody,

I am excited to write my first post on WC ❤️

My wife and I recently welcomed into our life our first baby daughter. We will be spending a month in the Miami area to meet her family out of Canada. 

This was the perfect excuse to get me some new watches to celebrate the occasion. The brief to myself (I know, I am weird like that) was that I had to pick 2 watches that would be complimentary, useful (or not) while travelling and that would fit well the Sunshine State environment. Ah and the budget would need to be 500€ max, with tax and shipping. 

Thanks to great Black Friday deals, I was able to pick up the amazing Seiko 5 GMT in Orange (SSK005K1) for 312€ and the Mr Jones « a lazy afternoon » for 192€ (including engraving). Needless to say that I am more than happy with both timepieces (reviews to come). They are different in almost every way but both fit the bill perfectly for our Miami adventure.

Do you agree? What would be your 2 watch collection to celebrate all thing Miami?

That’s a lovely pair!

i can’t think of anything better for the price.

in a different bracket - my gold rolex day date is my LA watch. But I think it would work for Miami too!

Nice watches, they'll serve you well in Miami.  Unfortunately, everybody will be too busy checking out each other's platinum Daytonas to notice, but I'm sure you'll enjoy them.

Great choices

This wonderful Day-Date would indeed be perfect! Clearly an other league and actually a grail watch for me. What a nice piece!

Haha you are probably right. To be frank, I will probably be far away from the places where you would spot platinum Daytonas.

Welcome to WC and congratulations on the new addition to your family 🎉

Gorgeous pair of watches you have there!

I think it’s the bargain grail. Around $10k - cheaper than steel and almost “worth its weight in gold.”

Congrats on the kiddo and new watches. I did something similar pending my arrivals soon. Love the choices here, well done.

You might be surprised. Enjoy.

Welcome. Welcome.  Welcome.

Welcome and congratulations on the new addition. Nice two watch Miami set. 

My Miami choices - one for seaside bling and afternoons on the water; one just for fun (and swimming):

Welcome to The Show!

Congratulations on the baby.  Your life is going to be absolutely dominated by the new kid, so having a hobby helps to keep you connected to the outside world.

Agree! (Never been to Miami, just like the watches)

Congrats to the family!!
