What main brand just doesn’t appeal to you?

For me, it’s Panerai. Whether it’s the #radiomir, #luminor, or #submersible, Panerai doesn’t have a single model family that appeals to me at all. I don’t like the size, the design language, or the price.

What brand has no appeal to you?

I don't know why but IWC always looks to generic and simple to me.
I also don't understand the pricing of many of their watches.

Anything pretentious. Penisrai included.

Anything overpriced for no good reason.

Anything with leather (because it's often cat and dog skin from China).

Anything without standard lugs.

Anything fragile which is most mechanical watches.

I basically hate everything. 😅

Specific brands:

All Rolex. Design hasn't been updated since 0002 BC. 

Many Omega. The dial is just flat with painted markers. So boring and overpriced. (Some are nicer though.) Did you hear they went to the moon? I wish they would mention that more often. 😅

All Cartier. Stupid brand that harms a lot of animals for the sake of fashion. 

I think a lot of micro brands look great but aren't as functional as I'd like.

I’m with you on Panerai. Another brand that I don’t like but is really popular is Junghans. They just don’t do anything for me. I can appreciate the skill in making a minimalist watch to a high leve of quality it just does not appeal.

Almost every brand has something in their back catalog that I like, although among the major brands, Omega, Breitling, and Tag haven't done anything in a while that I'm really into.

Wow is that you in the photo?! talk about coordination 😵‍💫😂

·

Panerai an Hublot immediately come to mind for me, no interest in wearing either brand 

·

Almost everybody got something I like 🤔 

·

Seiko’s I despise wearing them…🤫😝

This is tongue in cheek.  I feel like I have to say that with my sarcastic and slightly combative posts these days.  😜

About the leather.  We get it that you're suspicious of the industry.  Killing an animal and wearing its skin is a f'ked up thing to do regardless of the species.  Why is it so different if it's cat or dog?

And, if that's the issue, it seems like one could find a responsible strap maker who was careful about the provenance of their leather.

I agree with biker bill... I never could warm up to breitling's. I'll probably never own one unless someone gives one to me. And while I own a couple of vintage omegas they don't necessarily make it for me either. Same for Seiko. Give me a Rolex and I'll be much happier. As for the lament that their designs haven't changed in many a year.. that's because they are classics. Why mess with perfection? 😁
