Is there a watch that you just don't get?

Time to get sacrilegious folks!

Is there an iconic or universally loved watch that you just don't get?

For me it's the Submariner, particularly a modern Submariner. But even so - there's vintage divers that I'd jump on before I looked at a Sub (early Seamaster 300 ... Oh yeah!).

What's the 'great' watch that leaves you saying ... meh?

I like the no-date Submariner, including the current one, though I'll concede there's nothing superlative about it.

But the Tudor Black Bay....I simply can't abide. Who decided to put all the shapes on it?

I'd choose a Sub date over a no date - I'm pro cyclops - but Iike the Black Bay, particularly the BB54. I'd own it if I didn't have oran-utan wrists. 馃悞

IWC... All of them. Sorry, I know they're great watches. They're just so generic and boring. And this is someone who loves a plain black design as much as the next guy. I don't get them.

Omegas don't do it for me. Or Cartier.

Same!

For me it's the dive watch trend generally. There is no one diver that stands out as bad for me. My issue with them is that I find the general design unappealing. I struggle to understand why it's so popular. The only dive watch I have ever tried on which I really liked is the new Tudor Black Bay with the burgundy bezel on a jubilee. That is a really nice watch which I might get at some point, but apart from that divers rarely impress me. I know it's a hot take 馃敟

The explorer,all around watch.

Same here. The sub.
