This is VERY true. I could have commented on a Rolex Explorer, but since I know I'm getting one, I feel I am not immune to finding myself lusting after another piece later on.

That thing feel right at home on that nato strap. This looks like a frame from a yakuza movie.

Beautiful shot and a very unique dial. Love it.

YYZ_Frenchie commented on What was your first “luxury” watch purchase? ·

Very cool Zodiac. I myself am a big fan of white dials, and this green circle of colour around it makes it really pop!

my first really nice watch was a Longines Master Collection chrono


I still have it and enjoy the hell out of it.

Let us know which Santos you choose! 😉
