We did still have Ture Sventon though laugh.gif

I'm thinking of buying one of these , has been one of my favorite artists and paintings for a long time, i'm scared it does fall into that "cliche" territory though. What do you guys think?

Have two pairs of Barneys brand shoes i've had for ~2 years, paid double what those cost and don't regret it at all. Solid quality and good looks.

With that being said, even though those may be good quality and a good price, they seem kind of lame high school teacherish

I left my watch at a climbing gym in St. Louis, but my friend mailed it back to me today. And here is the one print I have in my apartment.

I really like watches, my watch, my keys and watch are the fist things I grab for in the morning but honestly the I'm not really that into watch design. Mainly because the difference between value in watches is usually valued in either precious metals and/or milliseconds of accuracy. I mean they take a significant amount of craftsmanship but it seems that only the big brands can produce mid level models at high prices. You might see the same base movement in one watch and the same and in another and it'll be significantly higher price.

If you really want a nice looking watch in most cases IMO your better off getting something simple and get some cool straps.

I wouldn't mind an SW&D watch thread but i dont think many people would post in it.

actually, is there an sw&d watch thread, or just the one in MC?
post #79120 of 103464
I think the only watches worth posting about are already covered in the MC thread confused.gif

I don't think I'll buy any watches that don't have in house movements from here on.
post #79121 of 103464
Why is that? There's not that many companies that have true in house movements.

I'd make an effort. I used to collect. I've pared down to just a few pieces now though.

They're so not. Looking at the gallery, the thread is heavily skewed towards high end ($1000+).

I can appreciate or even admire watches as mechanical marvels but that's a cold and theoretical admiration at best, I'm not touched by it, I can't experience it the way I can experience fashion/art/architecture. It's cool if your appreciation goes deeper than that but for me it's just an expensive mildly useful piece of craftsmanship with a price tag that guarantees its function as status symbol first and foremost (and all the latent douchiness that comes with it).

On a more basic level, I know this is styleforum but spending upwards of 2,000 on a watch is simply something I can't relate too. I know there are some very nice and chill ppl on here that like that stuff but watch talk makes me want to slap ppl around, it is what it is.

Also I don't really care about watches in general.

And I don't really care about time.

And I don't have wrists.

There's the poor man's watch thread too. TBH you should spend under $150 or above $1000 on a watch. There's nothing worth buying in the middle (except maybe a few vintage watches, but you have to shop carefully).

Movements are part of the mechanical beauty of a watch, even if it's not visible (but the beautiful ones usually are).

The status symbol watches are like lv sneakers shog[1].gif

Most ppl will not recognize a Patek or ALS just like they will not recognize ccp or dries.
Note: I am not comparing ccp to Patek tongue.gif
