That thing is absolutely massive!

I haven't been on SF for a while - I hope you didn't trade in your panny that was such an awesome watch and you pulled it off very well with suits.

I found some old photos of a watch I frankened into a beater/dancing watch for my wife, it's a Tissot PRS-something automatic. I thougt I'd do the same to the Seiko. Here's before and after on the Tissot:

Massive is the word. I can actually imagine it strapped over a leather jacket, pilot-style, and not looking insane. I dare you, Guido! (Actually, I'm curious about how it looks. Indulge me?)

hey guys, newbie here. im currently searching for my wedding watch and need your thoughts and opinions after much thinking at work. ive kind of narrowed it down to 3 in order of highest to lowest. mind you this could change 1. Navitimer - pros: versatility, can change its look via a simple strap / bracelet change. cons: is this a watch that can be handed down to my children? 2. Rolex GMT master II - pro: this is the kind of watch that can be passed down to generations cons: waiting list here in melbourne for one, and alot of people at work wear them 3. IWC porto chrono - pros: elegant looking watch, always loved the look cons: no date, not a 5001 (5001 is out of my budget) the two navtimers i had in mind were the World and mont brilliant datora both in white

Get a Seamaster GMT chrono...dress it up or down. Personally, I don't like the "perception" of a Rolex. The others are good choices.

Hi all,

I'm trying to get into this watch game, and I feel like I need to diversify my measly quiver of 1. I'm thinking I need a good SS diver (with blue accents), a SS watch to wear with brown shoes/belts (maybe with a cream dial?), and a black technical watch, just because.

Help me choose between these watches, or chime in with otherbettergreater options.

Thanks!

The Rolex SS is one of my favorites.

Not a fan of that Breitling. They are very casual.

You can't go wrong with #2 or #3.
