Low-key, I was too haha 💸
Totally agree about the cult-like universal praise for the PRX, it’s definitely a flawed watch; but I think that can be said of any watch, really. I’m also not crazy about the planned obsolescence. However, at the end of the day, things like dimensions are 1000% subjective. I think @Puffin’s point, is that the sentiment: the PRX is for “beginner collectors,” smacks a little of snobbery. I think we should all take a step back and realize that it’s totally fine to simply dislike something for many reasons or no reason at all. There’s no perfect watch, just the perfect watch for you. 🍻
Great suggestion! It is astonishing what SWC gives you for the price! Some of the best looking, most well thought-out, and well executed micro brands out there… it’s just… that name 🤦♂. It’s an absolute shame such fantastic watches are attributed to a company that sounds like they asked their 6 year old kid to come up with the name, or maybe it was just to target some SEO. Genuinely, not hating, just so disappointed. I have no doubt SWC would be considered among the top micro brands alongside the likes of Zelos, if they had a better name.
— ok,ok, probably shouldn’t have written this right after reading that most recent “Don’t Buy This Watch” post. Haha
Honestly, this post exemplifies why I’ve grown to love the WC community. I can’t think of any other watch forum where this kind of sacred cow BBQ would be received with such good humor.
Looking forward to Vol. III, gents!👏
Would happily own a watch from either of these brands! Even voted for AnOrdain in most of their matchups. But ultimately, I think innovation and technical prowess won out over sheer beauty for me. (Actually being able to buy one helps too).
@AllTheWatches, thanks for putting on this tournament! It’s been fun! 🍻
Welcome! Great collection! I especially love that Longines 👌
Thanks! And congrats on the new Cambridge! I’m finding it a fun “strap swapper” watch.
