So I'm getting different answers while trying to figure out if certain watches are Titanium or Steel from the Speake Marin line.According to this, the silver toned version is titanium http://www.speake-marin.com/collections/j-class-collection/velsheda/velsheda-titanium/42How different is steel from titanium? Which weighs more? Costs more? Stronger? More durable against nicks and scratches?edit- some googling answered my own questions. Looks like titanium is lighter than...
I got chance to see the Speake-Marin Velsheda in person. While I'd be interested in the gold model, they had the steel model on blue alligator. I like it, but I'm not sure you can justify the 2-2.5x price difference between steel and gold in this model. The steel model felt pretty light weight. Gold version stock photo is below:
Are all new models announced? It would be interesting to see if there's a new Speake-Marin.
All three of these are watches I previously circled as pure dress watches I'd want. Perhaps a slightly different A. Lange model (Richard Lange), but strange coincidence anyway. I guess you have good taste.
I like this one:
I think there are ranges of dressy to a "dress watch." If I wanted one for very formal, my favorite is the Patek 5119R, which is a fairly simple dial yet very elegant I think. If I'm looking for something less dressy, then I think I want more out of the dial/design.
Unless you wear your watch upside down, I think you always have to look at aesthetics first, and then the guts second. I just don't think it's anything that spectacular for the amount of attention it receives. Basically a blue dial with a white circle, oversized numbers, and an offset second dial. Of course, I haven't seen it in person, but it's nothing earth shattering from photos.
Am I the only one who thinks the FP Journe Bleu is an internet hype train and not that great looking? The online watch community seems to obsess over it but I think it's just okay looking. I hear there's now a 2 year waiting list for it. I've shown non-online watch community people photos of it and they all dislike it. Internet hype train or not? For those that don't know it, it's a watch made out of tantalum by FP Journe (small company). I believe it's about $20k.
I'm not interested in this right now but I found the watch itself interesting. It's a Glashutte Senator Meissen special model that has a special enamel dial. Very glossy/white, comes off a bit milky in photos. Glashutte Senator Meissen.
