Pretty sure I’m going to go all black next time. This red haunts every polished surface it touches 😑

Ah this might be a smart way for me to go about a summer watch. I’ve been caught by surprise by an Oris 65 in bronze on rubber recently, this really stands out too! I was really reminded of a Zodiac with white ceramic.

I loved the Pineapple Dream I tried on. *pic at bottom

Ahhh I want a white ceramic Zodiac ❤️

Seiko divers always look cooler to me without a bracelet, looks nice 👌

commented on What do yiu consider a statement watch? ·

I’d say a fancy dial Grand Seiko or an auto or manual wind Cartier.

Both fit the price bracket and both make a ‘statement’ in terms of their design. They’re not going to show up your boss though with a Rolex and they’re understated in that nobody not into watches will have a clue what they are!

This Christopher Ward managed to pass me by, hadn’t heard of it before, looks fantastic!

God no haha! Plenty of financial goals I’d need to hit before being able to drop that kind of money on another watch.

I’d be interested to know how many of the 75 have been sold though!

High legibility, solid construction. Lugs make strap changes difficult, but it looks better on the steel anyway.
