๐Ÿš€ Jet Set With 5x Timepieces โœˆ๏ธ

Embarking on a 5-day business journey, I've handpicked a quintet of horological companions to ensure I'm punctually stylish for every meeting. ๐Ÿ•’๐Ÿ’ผ 1. The Geometric: A custom creation that defies convention with its bold shapes and angles. A true conversation starter. 2. Yacht-Master Inspiration: An all-steel, nautical-themed masterpiece that keeps my sea-faring dreams close, even on land. 3. Spect & Sรถhne SP0007: Elegance personified with its pristine white dial and rose gold accents, a watch that speaks volumes without saying a word. 4. Pagani Design GMT (Rose Gold Two-Tone): A touch of luxury with its rose gold hues, perfect for those upscale evening events. 5. Pagani Design GMT (Steel with Black and Blue Bezel): My go-to for casual yet sophisticated day-to-day wear. Each timepiece tells a story, and I'm bringing a library. And now I'm running late.... ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคฃ โฑ๏ธ๐Ÿ“šโŒš

Cool homage collection. The Spect & Sรถhne SP0007 is a curious choice to me. Seems like a Royal Oak homage would make more sense.

If you like the look, a Tissot PRX would actually be a pretty good everyday watch for about the same cost as these 5 watches

I tried the PRX and was really close to buying one, but decided against it. It is a nice watch and think it's worth its price, but I prefer the dial design of the Spect and Sรถhne and also the hand and indices choose over the PRX. I wrote a review over it and the only thing I don't like about the watch is the bracelet isn't as nice as the PRX. Two of the watches in the line up are custome pieces. Cheers ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

Had to make an edit since I realized the automatic PRX has the same dial design and was the one I tried recently while in Vienna.

I do have some friends who are industrial designers. One thing to consider is that designers make their living making original designs.

It's a fuzzy line, if you think the product a product is a "remake" of the original or just a homage without the encumbrance and risk of going through the design process.

Of course if it is something you cannot afford, I have no problem. I had a pretty good homage collection to start my journey. But if you find yourself cross shopping, consider the original. (whether the PRX is original is different story)

I understand that, my wife is a fashion designer and original ideas are difficult. They usually involve risk and if they work, the design gets immediately copied by fast fashion.

I'll not afford a Rolex though, regardless of design originality, ect., since I don't see the value in it. I've spent the equivalent amount of an OP on watch parts and tools, etc, but I dont see the value in comparison to a bunch of more affordable watches that I can modify and do "harm" to without impacting potential resale value. I am however interested in eventually getting a Sea Wolf, but that's because I love the style/design ๐Ÿ˜… so things change and YMMV.

Fully understood. Ive bought cheaper watches so that I can mod them with less damage to my pocketbook. Especially since my ideas dont always work out.
