diabhey commented on What鈥檚 your recommendation for a watch under $200?

Seiko 5s is a no brainer聽

diabhey commented on First post! How colorful is your collection?

I have a monochromatic collection. Black is the new black :p

diabhey commented on Most underrated watch maker?

Zenith in my humble opinion is the most underrated brand. They don't get the attention they deserve. However, off late, they are being big on promos and doing a good job in marketing which I welcome. "Those who know, know" ;)聽

I am happy that you could spot that :) @casio_tonneau

diabhey commented on SOTC: The "one-watch" collection :D

@roberto Thanks for suggesting this piece. The Marinemaster was not under my radar. I have not dived deep into "independents" for the simple fact that I can't find them in the wild (rare to spot them) and try them on. I would like to try every single piece before I buy. 聽Having said that, I will start considering independents as my collection grows. I am usually not attached to a brand. If I like a watch, I will surely try to get it provided it is under "reasonable" pricing and availability.聽

Do you own independents? if so, how do you try them before you buy them?

diabhey commented on Your watch on show

I changed my entire wardrobe recently to watch my watch collection! 馃嵒

diabhey commented on SOTC: The "one-watch" collection :D

I surely will. I bought my Zenith in Geneva and the person at the AD is going to be a future watchmaker who is now doing his apprenticeship at AP. The conversations we had before I got "my grail" made it all the more special. I have been in contact with him since and we are planning to head to the Zenith factory at Le Locle this year. I see watch collecting as building relationships. Building relationships with your watches, AD, watchmaker, and fellow collectors.聽

I am only seeing one watch ahead at a time and my next watch is going to be a divers/tool watch as my daily driver.聽

I will let De Rijke sit on my head for a while and see where that takes me(on the vespa ;)
