Killer review! Thanks for the good read, and always nice to see fellow Singaporean on WatchCrunch. 鈽猴笍 You鈥檝e certainly made a compelling case for Squale and this watch. I will take a deeper look at the collection in Gnomon the next time I鈥檓 there! Cheers 馃

Excellent read! Cheers mate!

commented on What鈥檚 the complication you鈥檙e going with if you could only pick one?

I voted for the GMT, but would also like to add a special mention for the moonphase. There are certain cultures (particularly asian ones) that follow the lunar calendar for their rituals. For example, some devout Buddhists eat vegetarian meals on the 1st & 15th of every lunar month, so the moonphase feature would be very practical for them 馃対

Lovely piece! You鈥檝e got a keeper right there (*both the watch and its 鈥済ifter鈥) 馃槈

commented on My Watch collection so far as a student

Nice collection! Might I suggest watches with some complications, say a GMT or chronograph? The Seiko 5 GMT or Orient Mako Solar Chronograph are rather affordable options!

commented on Help me find a watch for my girlfriend!

Coincidentally, I have also given a F-91W to my wife and she uses it as her daily driver. They are fantastic work horses with a modest presense on the wrist!

Anyway, if you ask me, I would recommend skipping the digital/anidigital options and go straight to analog (quartz). It鈥檒l work for dressier occasions and stand out more from the Casio. Maybe a Timex expedition or weekender? Good to dip her toes inexpensively into this realm to find out if analog watches are her thing (or not).
