Where to start

"Gents" and "ladies" are not sizes, they're genders. It's fine (though increasingly passé) to gender your collection, but come on. I'd much rather pul...

Baltic MR01! :)

tesseraic commented on Integrated bracelet… sans bracelet. ·

I have two integrated bracelet sports watches:

  1. A Citizen Tsuyosa with a yellow dial. Here it is on its bracelet, and I also have an aftermarket leather strap for it. It feels like a totally different watch on the strap, which is quite fun.

  2. A Direnzo DRZ 04 Mondial. Here it is on its bracelet, and here it is on an OEM color-matched rubber strap. I tend to wear it on the bracelet in winter and on the rubber strap in summer.

Conversely, don't buy what you don't like. Sounds like a silly thing to say but I think we all know people who buy watches because of hype even though they don't particularly care for the look of them.

At some point I'd love to get one of these. It's too bad Glycine's MSRP is over twice what they go for.

Came here to say this. I have the blue one and love it! It's very well proportioned for my slender wrist.

Keep things that have sentimental value to you. Sell things that don’t.
