I'm probably going to pick the Zulu Time when it comes out as a 40mm version. I wish Longines made a drive watch that looked this good!

Great quality watches, fun designs but I can't see myself spending that much on a microbrand

Didn't like the sound of it but the photo won me over. Really sweet combo!

doitforthedial commented on Opinions about the new Aquitaine series ·

I think the Chris Ward design language is going in the right direction. I like their modern looking logo at 12 o'clock and thank god there's nothing at 9 o'clock! They've seem to have settled for a decent pair of hour and minute hands which is unique to the brand. I'm also a fan of the cream dial and patina lume. Overall, I liking all three but probably wouldn't buy any of them. They've still not made the right CW watch for me but it's getting closer.

Rectangular watch + suited and booted = 👌

Today, it's probably a 5 digit datejust from the 90s with a jubilee. Tomorrow, who knows?

doitforthedial commented on Moonwatch and the MoonSwatch ·

How icon the speedmaster design is comes to mind and then what great value for money the moonswatch is! Shame about the moonswatch strap's looks, I'd probably get it replaced with a leather or rubber.
