Offtopic: I'm glad to see everyone here is having as busy a Thursday as I am
 So you're saying you aren't concerned with the aerodynamics of your watch?   In regards to Montblanc I tend to agree with the consensus here. Their entire line is a bit of mess, but some of the watches stand out to me - the world time watch that Hodinkee did a hands on with a few months back struck me as a fun and interesting watch. Though you have to admire their desire to actually build high quality watches; they have all the brand recognition necessary to simply sell...
Watches like that do serve a valuable purpose: I immediately know that I will not get along with its wearer.
What does every one think of the newly announced Luminor Due? I can get behind the idea of a thinner but can't imagine paying almost $11,000 for that watch. They stripped away a lot of what makes a Luminor a Luminor and replaced it with something that's trying to be both am action hero watch and somewhat of a dress watch
@Journeyman   I just can't get into vintage-inspired watches with faux tritium. I love the vintage designs but I don't want my lume to look like its 40 years old when it's brand new. Especially since it won't actually age that way.    The seamaster 300 is the only Omega dive that I even slightly enjoy the design of, but the lume ruins it for me.
 Give us a little more info and we can help guide you. Budget? Lifestyle? What do you wear to work? Etc. Do you already wear watches? If so, what type? If not, I'd recommend taking like $400 and buying some solid lower end watches to see what style of watch you really enjoy wearing. A Seiko SKX007 for $125 to try out divers. An orient bambino or seiko cocktail time to fuck around with dress watches. Maybe something baohaus-inspired to see if that is more your speed. Try a...
You could always try a Tudor Black Bay and pocket a good chunk of that $6k.It'll sit a littler higher on your wrist than a sub would, but I think it is absolutely fantastic on the included fabric strap. I hadn't even considered one until I was at the AD and he recommended I try one on. It made my decision significantly more difficult. The rehaut is a little large for my liking, but most everyone who has one seems to love it.   Though if I were in your position, I'd...
 Thank you! It really is a fantastic feeling. Its tough to explain to non-watch folk what makes this hunk of engineered metal that is 1000x worse at telling time than my iphone special, but y'all get it. I've always felt a particularly affinity towards the Tudor brand that I can't quite explain. The snowflake hand just speaks to me on some primitive level. I know some people feel that they've been diluting their product line a little recently, and while I don't love the...
    Been a few years since I've posted on Styleforum(I had some good laughs looking back at my 22yo self), but I've lurked in this thread plenty. Feels good to finally be able to contribute...   Had this for little less than a month now and I couldn't be more in love. I was celebrating my engagement in Paris with my fiance and sort of "impulse" bought this. I had always admired and longed after the Pelagos, but had never planned to pick one up. Walking around, I...
Really not sure how i tried to dress limited knowledge up as fact when I say "I am certainly not trying to state anything definitively here and certainly dont consider myself an expert on the matter, but as someone who has just outfitted himself with a working man's wardrobe I figured I'd get my thoughts down in writing so as to help anyone else in this position.", right before i begin stating all of these so called "facts." Writing a guide that works perfectly for...
