It’s a stunner

Justingalore commented on Who decides the pricing at Tag Heuer? ·

It’s a confusing thing as the GS is technically superior and just great.

But but but - the Tag is just so useable and the design really chimes. The light weight and matte finish make it perfect to throw around (I don’t tend to jog in the GS but do in the Tag and already that makes it a better option for me like 3 days a week.)

I have found the bracelet to have worn in well - no issues with scratches etc. maybe the one in the shop has been beaten up.

Justingalore commented on Cartier Santos Belt - Hot Or Not ? ·

Love it - but I’m biased. I wear a cartier tank belt and use a cartier santos keyring.


Ps. Did TGVs latest inspire you to look at that belt?

Justingalore commented on Solargraph back out for some 🌞 ·

I have this and really think it works will in the bracelet and it’s really comfy and light. Obviously you do you - but it’s a great looking / wearing bracelet!

Justingalore commented on Does size matter? ·

It looks great- very Muhammad Ali

Justingalore commented on I think that's it, the perfect combination of three but one in the middle rules them! ·

Agree that a datejust is all you need

Justingalore commented on Which hogh horology brand you like the most? ·

Love them - but slightly older refs a better size for me. Eg this 34 Saxonia with blue dial and big date.

When scrolling still watch images on your phone

Do they ever appear to tick? Happens to me all the time. It’s like when a cat dies and you still see it running about in the corner of your eye.

“The most exciting day of the year”

My partner laughed at me when I unironically described the 28th as “the most exciting day of the year” - on account of needing to wind forward all my date windows a whole bunch. So will you be getting...
