Beautiful watch. I wish they textured the dial the way they did the mist flake. I'd choose the darker dial version every time for legibility.

JLC Polaris Mariner Date. But I’m probably 12 months away at my current saving rate.

Any Zenith. Love the Chronomaster Sport and most of the revival series. The 37mm A385 and A384 models sit so well on my wrist. But at $7-10k, that’s a high price to pay if you aren’t a chronograph guy. And sadly, I am not. 

GoingTopShelf commented on Why did Hans Wildorf name Tudor, Tudor ·

Because he thought they would school other watch brands?

I'll see myself out, thank you.

Happens all the time. My local watch shop has about 100 pieces displayed daily. All on consignment.

GoingTopShelf commented on Chronographs - Heuer or Zenith? ·

Have you put a Monaco on your wrist? The square size and the prominent thickness make it a watch that I personally cannot pull off with my 6.75" wrist. Your mileage my vary, but it is certainly not for everyone. Great design, but wearability is an issue for me at least.

Nice watch. What's Reddit? 😜

Fixing a Timex Indiglo

I've had a few Timex watches over the years. I get them because I find them fun due to the indiglo feature. It's awesome. But, a lot of people don't r...
