Going for a white dial instead of black since it'll be more versatile (and I already have a watch with a black dial) but wondering if rose gold details detract from or add to the watch.
Left is all silver. Middle is silver crown and gold colored inlays. Right is gold crown and inlays.

This is slightly more expensive and while I like the shape and the power reserve, I think it busies up the logo a bit.




I know this isn't the range you guys look at, but I hoping to nab a slightly dressier watch.
Top or Bottom Orient, I say.

I have these 2 Citizens. For $170 or so on sale they were hard to beat.

Speaking of cheap Tissot's couple of pages ago and impulse buys: picked up Tissot Visodate with the mesh bracelet (Milanaise for the marketing people) and have to say that it's suitably retro and IMHO very good bang for the buck-ratio. Love it.

None of them really strike me as particularly versatile watches, but the silver is going to be more versatile than the gold.

I meant versatile insofar as dress watches. I've seen them worn in more casual getups and they looked okay too. I have 2 other watches for that though!

Yeah, the bambino is 130-140ish. The orient star is 275, but I feel like it's not really worth the upcharge even for a nicer movement since this isn't going to see that much wrist time.

Train view looks nice (we just got snow here in Denmark a few days ago, going out to ride my bike in it now).
Nice! Enjoy the ride in your beautiful country.

Book publishing still employs professional typographers, so of course it's well-chosen. smile.gif

Nah, Maja is a Podenco Canario and she's faster than I am on fat tires! She runs alongside.

Non-load-bearing, my ass. wink.gif







But yes, lifting heavy things once in a while is good for your body. smile.gif

You're more likely to break bones than build them doing that nonsense. wink.gif

Train rides are fun. Almost as much fun as the destination.

I travel 4 hours on the train per day to get to work and back (2 hours there, 2 hours back).

ridethecliche, join the club. I started looking at the Bambino, went to Hamilton, then Tissot. There is an evolution. My dress watch will be JLC & Day-Date, and dive a Sub. Till then, I think Tissot is good at +1 sec/day. Only sticking point is movement is in many various watches and has no control of end result.

Silver dress watches all the way (pic posted before):

post #39357 of 48312

Yeah, the Tissot Visodate is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for.

 

Maybe I'll save a bit and get it instead.

 

@in stitches, I'm guessing you like this one more too right?

 

There's one on sale @TZ for 375, but it's gold inlays so no bueno. Wish this didn't have the day on it though. I'd be okay with no day/date. I never bother with them lol.

^ Sound choice IMO.
post #39359 of 48312
Yes, I certainly like that one a lot more. :-)

Even over the orient star?
