I think I'm in the minority as the 62mas and the BB do nothing for me, but that does mean I get to enjoy my weird unloved Seiko for bargain prices.

commented on My collection

Don't pay full price for one though, they are on sale all the time or are easily available used for good prices.

commented on My collection

Nice collection, I think something like a SRPE Seiko dressKX would work with this collection and fits with this budget

That is a beautiful watch but it is also exactly the reason why I was never that interested in chronographs, they generally sacrifice legibility of one of the functions. That being said I do like the pogue era Seiko chronographs and the Fortis stratoliner but I did end up getting this because of the case.

Yes he is wearing a watch, I think we can agree on that, or maybe we can't, I'm not sure anymore. Here's a cute puppy to cheer everyone up (I couldn't find one wearing a watch)

You know CW has a boutique where you can try on watches if you are in the UK.

commented on Christopher Ward - showroom visit

I don't think CW particularly advertise anywhere and a lot of their watches reuse parts so R&D would be minimal for most of their watches. It might be worth looking into their back catalogue of watches to see if anything fits your criteria. This is my v1 Dartmouth which is quite different to the current version.
