Thanks, stitch! Sort of a field jackety thing from Diesel, not particularily SF approved But I like it!
RFX45, that is just perfect on your wrist! Congratulations Oysterquartz today
Love the Reverso and Tank, but the only square watch to pass by my collection was the TAG Heuer Monaco. I liked that one a lot, even if a TAG and not the 100% real deal (Heuer Monaco).

Investment value might be interesting, but highly unpredictable of course. But it needs to be one with a certain promise of a future classic, worthy of passing down to the next generations.

For a nominal yearly fee, I need not worry about parking my bike, and can choose to take public transport either way. As a bonus, I get to dodge hapless tourists and ring the bell at pretty hipster girl riding in summer dresses. Oh, and have a nice view of my chosen timepiece. Today it was the Oysterquartz
