@RFX45, nice wrist shots of the Daytona. Hope you get the chance to take some similar ones with the OP.

40.  And dang those pics of the black Daytona ... stunning ... it's amazing how certain watches get stuck in your head over time - that was one I seriously considered for this iteration but couldn't double up as I have a Speedy.

 

For those who want to keep guessing, here's the current collection (chronologically):

 

PAM 1860

Omega Seamaster (vintage 1960s)

Rolex Datejust 16220

Omega Speedmaster 3572.50

 

Let's just say the new guy fits me as I sometimes (often?) I act like a tool ... :rotflmao: 

 

Once again, thanks to TWAT for sending me down the vortex two years ago. I'm also taking advice of many to get this watch buying out of the way before I'm tied down with a SO and kids.

I would guess that you're safely down the vortex to at least 300m...maybe even 4000 feet?

Love the dial on that one, just wish it didn't have those weak soldered lugs that can easily be snapped off if it accidentally gets banged against a door frame or other solid item.

The Patek is beautiful for sure, but I'm intrigued by that venerable Rolex.  Please educate me, your Stitchness?

Is it me or is this thread getting less and less open to non TWAT approved watches. About half an dozen watch brands and elicit fawning approval and most others grudging acceptance or outright hostility. These are profit making companies and there is as little sense in the fan mentality for companies as there is for football clubs or pop stars.

I think that's a trait in this forum, for sure, and indeed in any forum: there is always some kind of "group think" that evolves in any society, or even a microcosm of a society, like this.  "SF likes.." or "TWAT likes..." are real phenomena.  But it doesn't mean they can't be challenged.

 

I'd disagree about "outright hostility", though.  I think most people - in this thread/subject particularly - are generally polite and accepting.  Sure, everyone expresses strong negative and positive opinions here, but I don't think I can recall anyone being attacked.  On the contrary, any negativity towards a certain piece or maker tends to be justified and debated in considerable detail, without ever getting personal.  Also, though there are definite TWAT-favourites, they do vary, and even the most obvious favourites like Patek and Rolex, have been slated here too for models that are considered below par.

 

This is the best and friendliest thread on SF.  At least I think so.  But it will ruin your life.  There is that.

That happened to me once. Took my YM diving, water got in. Long story short, movement was damaged beyond repair, Rolex wanted $7,000 (or some other silly money) to fix it. I figured screw it, managed to find a used 3135 somewhere (eBay I think?) and paid a watch repair guy to replace it. Think it cost me less than $2,000 in all, except I can't ever take my YM back to Rolex ever. Expensive lesson, and then some.
