Love Boldr and Zelos! Boldr made the cut because they happen to have a Canadian AD. Same as Formex.

Just watched American Psycho for the first time this week. Love the fact that Patrick Bateman is actually wearing a Seiko 5 (SNJX90) instead of the assumed Presidential Day-Date. Just fits the messages of this weird movie so spot on!

I don't own yet but I've been hugely admiring the Boldr Venture over the past few months. Titanium, sapphire, 38mm, and a really cool look for $400-$500!

commented on Which Japanese watch brand do you like the most? ·

I think each brand has their specialty that seperates them from eachother:

Seiko: historic divers

Orient: iconic dress pieces

Citizen: best solar movements

Casio: legendary digitals
