I'm not one to excommunicate over matters of taste.....but I don't think I've ever seen a Graham that didn't make me want to barf.
So bad that they made me go triple-negative in the above sentencepost #38808 of 4831212/10/14 at 3:02pm
Certainly agree with some of the watches on Mimo's list are not desirable, but I agree that Breitling has a couple of decent models, although quite a lot of their modern stuff is a bit too "blingy" or full of showy details.
Bulgari's has had some awful monstrosities, but their new line-up seems to be quite a significant improvement.
As an example, this is waaay out of my price-range, but the design is nice and it seems technically impressive:post #38809 of 4831212/10/14 at 3:02pmpost #38810 of 4831212/10/14 at 3:08pmQuote:
I tried Google searching "Good looking Graham watches" and Google replied with "Did you mean: Good looking can openers?" Graham took the crown guard concept and built a watch around that. Panerai crowd guards serve as functional and have a historical perspective.post #38811 of 4831212/10/14 at 5:08pmpost #38812 of 4831212/10/14 at 5:26pmQuote:Originally Posted by Keith T
BTW, I switched my 214270 over to NATO back around Thanksgiving (just to freshen things up-- I love the oyster). And I do believe the look has grown on me.
I've been trying to allocate some more wrist time to this watch for a while now.

Nice change. I've been considering several different watches, and every time I put the 39 mm Explore on, it just feels right.post #38813 of 4831212/10/14 at 5:27pmQuote:
This would be fine - albeit quite generic - without the obnoxious branding. Interestingly, Gerald Genta apparently designed the watch (or a predecessor model) and decided on the branding around the bezel as it reminded him of a Roman coin with the emperor's name around the perimeter of the coin:
The new Octo Finissimo Tourbillon, on the other hand, really appeals to me. The thinnest production tourbillon in the world, apparently, and the design strikes me as simple, utilitarian and yet quite elegant. The case was also designed by Genta, I believe. Unfortunately, it apparently costs $140 000 or more:post #38814 of 4831212/10/14 at 9:28pmpost #38815 of 4831212/10/14 at 9:34pmpost #38816 of 4831212/11/14 at 1:32am
I was going to Paris a few years back and saw an article about U-Boat on the plane. I was then in Galleries Lafayette and saw one for sale. It was 2700 euros (at the time over $5K beause of our garbage AUD at the time). I got carried away and got it. I absolutely hate it. In fact, I wore it half a dozen times and it has spent the last two years in the sock drawer. It isn't even entitled to the respect of a place in my watch winder. Now I am waiting for my kids to grow up so I can dump it on one of them.post #38817 of 4831212/11/14 at 3:09amQuote:That's what I did with my Rolexes.
I actually like the watches now just as much as when I got them. It was their proliferating ubiquity in the succeeding years that eroded their wrist time to the point where they just sat in the box for over a decade.post #38818 of 4831212/11/14 at 7:17ampost #38819 of 4831212/11/14 at 7:32ampost #38820 of 4831212/11/14 at 7:35am
