commented on Smaller watches with power reserve? ·

I have the nomos Metro power reserve. Beautiful watch. But be aware there's is no quick date set function.

commented on Tudor QC, again. ·

From what I've heard, you get less QC issues with the superclones. The buyers are paranoid about getting found out, so they have crazy vetting before paying for the watch. They would have immediately rejected this watch. Ironic but true.

commented on Which way to go ·

Buy the watch and take it work you on the trip. The best of both worlds ;-)

commented on Tired of automatic watches ·

I have a version of this and it's fantastic. Really the ideal watch, all that we need. I set my autos to it. The eco drive is useful.

commented on Vintage Datejust on a nato. ·

I was thinking of getting one, for sentimental reasons, but am cautious about the date change. How annoying is it? That there is no quick date set.

I like it

commented on What makes you connect with a watch? ·

I've been doing research on the Seiko watches of James Bond. It really feels like a romantic era of quartz watches.
