Johndobbs commented on Case size 34mm too small for a man?

This depends on the man. If you like the watch and it makes you happy , wear it! I own a 1971 34 mm Rolex because it reminds me of my grandfather who wore one very similar. I鈥檓 6 foot 4 inches and 264 pound former football player and I have no issues wearing a smaller watch as I have normal to larger wrist - don鈥檛 follow trends follow yourself and you鈥檒l be happy

Johndobbs commented on How much in the bank?

You should be able to pay all off required debts , bills , mortgage before and if you then can spend the full amount ( I鈥檇 suggest below retail as tudors loose some value ) for the watch and still have money left over for emergencies ect then you probably could be fine. Going into debt for a watch is never worth it !

Johndobbs commented on Moonswatch worth it as a first jump from Casio or Timex?

The moon swatch build quality is far worse than a Casio or timex - it鈥檚 a neat marketing idea but very poorly constructed rush job by swatch group. Get a PRX it will satisfy you years to come vs a watch that broke after a month of ownership ( my experience) and stained my wrist from poor paint application.

Johndobbs commented on Is anyone else intimidated by the #WRUW crowd

Wheat what you love that is what this is all about. I proudly wear my $13 dollar Casio or $50 Casio duro as much as my Omega or Rolex. Micro brands are cool wear then and love them we all do here !

Johndobbs commented on Could you ever turn into a 3 watch collector.

I鈥檇 love to have a three watch only - these watches I currently have may end up being just that, I鈥檓 seriously considering selling all else off

Once it鈥檚 on market for awhile these will drop in betting to 8500 or so ( hopefully )

Johndobbs commented on Your dream watch on your wrist, and nobody gives a f***.

Most people don鈥檛 care about watches given that smart watches are the largest purchased category by far. All that matters is you like it - watch collectors/ enthusiasts may notice but we are a very small minority- buy what you love wear it and nothing else matters
