First bronze piece!

Ever since unexpectedly trying on an IWC Spitfire in bronze a few months back (fantastic looking watch btw), I have been very interested in adding a b...

Great pick, sir… if I do say so myself 😆 I quite like it on mesh, personally!

Agreed on Jomashop inventory issues… I’m 99% sure I clicked “notify me when back in stock” a while back, and 100% sure I didn’t get a notification… just checked it and by dumb luck it was there.

Congrats on the steel version, it is a banger as well!

Totally agree- Hamilton nailed the OEM strap choice! The thinness of the case (under 10mm) also has me thinking that I just may avoid my insatiable urge to modify the strap from double to single pass… but we shall see :)

Congrats 🎉! Not to worry- plenty of time and prices will likely continue to ease downward.

commented on Two months into the new year, how many of you, like me, have failed to keep your watch purchasing resolutions? ·

Right there with you. I was planning to hold out till seeing Watches and Wonders releases, then proceed with buying my first luxury piece from a boutique (Tudor BB54).

But then, a more affordable watch I’ve had my eye on (Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical in Bronze) was restocked at Jomashop in limited quantities, and the price was too good to resist. Pounced on it and the next day, it was sold out… so I feel relief rather than regret since I was able to snag it at such a good price. Im also fortunate enough to still be on track for my post-W&W purchase… for now, that is 😆

I put the Baby Alpinist back on the OEM calf leather strap with deployant clasp and I am reminded why I never use this strap. It’s one of those situat...

NWA: Unplanned eBay Find!

This one kinda came out of nowhere. I started collecting less than a year ago, and my collection is fairly “safe” at the moment. I’ve therefore been c...
