MrBloke commented on Watches from each decade - Share your watches Part 6: The 60s ·

Puzzling one. Balance cock design looks like a Fabrique d'Ebauches Fleurier (FEF) design. But the rest of it looks like something by Peseux. I'd need to do more digging, I couldn't find an exact match so far.

MrBloke commented on Fun but not fun Post - Post Apocalyptic World ·

Hmmm. Would have to be a solar-powered digital G-Shock. My pick would probably be the GX56BB or GMW5610. It's really about the same criteria as with modern milwatches, which...surprise, surprise, are mostly G-Shocks or Suunto.

MrBloke commented on Low-End Mechanical vs. High-End Quartz? ·

Neither. I'd get a Certina COSC-certified quartz - though even a Precidrive one would do - and call it a day.

MrBloke commented on New X-33 Thoughts and Opinions ·

5900 CHF for an ana-digi wonder. Hell, no.

MrBloke commented on Your opinion on the Day-Date complication ·

I guess for me it all depends on whether a particular design gets along with the complication or not. I generally prefer no-date or date-only, but a well-designed day-date is fine by me.
