Is it weird? Yes. Is it wonderful? I think so yeah! The Softwatch by Exaequo is certainly a unique watch. Not that great to tell the time but who care...

My 2 watch collection of 2022

Yeah way happier with this one. The case has a little bit of a curve and the bigger version follows te curve of my wrist instead of sitting on top of it.

I’m glad I made the decision to buy this one.

Olivier commented on The Big Bad Brother: Casio W-86 ·

Fantastic little watch indeed. I really like the look, and the little increase in the all-round dimensions might also be a one up over the F91W for some. The extra water resistance is really nice, and it's the only model I've seen with it.
I'm personally not a fan of hooded lugs like on this W86 or G-Shocks in general, hence why I went with the F105W, but that's probably just me.

It looks great! You make me want to get a Milanese strap of my own and try it.

Olivier commented on How do you feel about odd lug widths ·

I'd rather have a well proportioned and balanced watch than even lug width.
If they thought it looked better with the odd lug width why not go for that.

Looks fantastic, I always love their special editions for airline companies and they nailed it with this as well

The startup business for educational clocks filed to trademark "Oyster and Pop". Filing to trademark something comes with a time to oppose, meaning anyone who thinks the trademark should not be approved for any reason can come forward. After which the court will look at the opposal and either approve the trademark or not.

Rolex thinks it infringes on their existing trademark and thus opposed within this period. It's up to the court to decide if they are correct or not.

Oyster trademark from Rolex: https://trademarks.justia.com/712/55/oyster-71255783.html
Oyster and Pop trademark: https://trademarks.justia.com/905/62/oyster-90562387.html

You might see this as bullying, you might see this as Rolex protecting their trademark, but before choosing sides it's important to understand the legalities.

Just an idea I had for a watch box

I had been eyeing a Softwatch by Exaequo for quite a while, but the price had always been too high for me to justify the purchase of one, especially s...
