Not the fanciest of collections. Just an amateur enthusiast, with a little interest in some things EDC as well. And tennis. And F1. And nature.
Horological super nerds, help a watch simp out.

As a noob to the sport, my blind eyes just looked at vintage in awe and wonder, and tropical dials were never seen as a flaw. If given the chance I might pop for the right one, even knowing I’m probably being charged a premium for it to be described as tropical dial. That Benrus for instance is barking the right notes.
Given this split, I’d go Railmaster for aesthetics. The utilitactiltarianism of the Ranger is less to my personal taste than the elegant dial that this Railmaster has. But if I were to consider other options in this price range I’d search for the right Grand Seiko. But have you considered an RGM? The
Model 150 perhaps?

They’re just straps…right?
Of course not, they’re half the palette? They’re surely responsible for framing the case? They have to enhance the dial or compliment it the very leas...
