Leather is my least favorite when it's hot, just seems like the sweat is killing the band faster.

I also don't care for leather bands when it's hot. Which is not to say I don't use leather bands in summer, but I find a steel bracelet more wearable. But speaking of leather, this arrived in the mail today. I hope it's an appropriate item the post in this thread, rather than the other watch thread:
It's a Magrette Vantage, one of 550. I've long thought about picking up a bronze watch and I liked the look of this one.post #45123 of 483127/13/15 at 9:40pmpost #45124 of 483127/14/15 at 1:04ampost #45125 of 483127/14/15 at 1:18am
Well, I did sold the PAM 176 and bought it back . I don't think it will be the case for the 424 thou, it was an impulse purchase and if I really miss the California dial, I'll probably go for the 249.Quote:
Agreed, I do own the SS Daytona and was expecting the GMT to be heavier given the thickness; looks hefty as well. It was abit of a disappointment for me, being SS.Quote:Originally Posted by mimo
Logically speaking, I'd say that you were missing that simple dress watch, and something versatile on a bracelet. So in your shoes, I'd maybe have gone for a Zenith dress watch o some sort and an Aqua Terra. But I'm looking forward to the reveal!
Just a long shot: yellow gold Lange 1, standard size. Just saw one in the window of a local dealer with whom I'm able to negotiate having hooked him up with a couple of sales recently. Shout if you want me to explore possibilities.
Mimo my man! u're right on da money!
Zenith Class Elite Dual Time!
Since i'm missing a dress watch and a GMT, why not have both in one!
Sorry to bore you guys with the unboxing but the Zenith "gold" plaque was interesting
and I wanted to share with u guys.
If I were to nip pick, I kinda dislike the border of the date aperture extending into the guilloche part of the dial.
Wrist SHOT! LOVE the quick set GMT hands at the 10! double up as a 24hr indicator when i'm not overseas.
What's a TWAT worthy watch? A speedy of course! Love the Co-Axial
chrono! complement my white Daytona nicely. Ever since lurking in the forum,
I knew I wanted a speedy, did a little research. Came across
and I was sold!
Its a lil pricely but the material they used and the finishing? worth it! I mean like down
to the details like the 18k WG indexes, ceramic buckle? come on! Love the depth of the dial not flat
like the PAM 292 I previously own. Most brands that offer ceramic watches doesn't have ceramic buckle.
This is the true ceramic watch IMHO.
Been looking at the Tudor black shield as well, and having seen in real life, it really pales in comparison
to the enhanced pictures on blogs and their website. The gold/brown on the dial is so underwhelming,
flat. Its quite a chunky piece as well.
Macaroons anyone? u can actually see the thickness of the dial via the date aperture.
Love that spiral finishing!
Wrist shots and first impressions later. Meanwhile enjoy the eye candies guys! Sorry for the poor picture quality, taken on a Samsung S5 &
the long post.
@no frills Hopefully u'll get your first omega! be the yang to my yin. Hope u get the reference!
just a sizing reference for your guys. 47mm x 44mm x 40mmpost #45126 of 483127/14/15 at 2:58ampost #45127 of 483127/14/15 at 4:02am
@Novelty77 hits it out of the park.
Awesome double kop. I like both of those. If I was going to nitpick I'd say I don't like the date window on either, but that's just me and date windows.
If you're looking to make it the triple and you want a heavy Rolex that still wears well then it's the Explorer II all the way.

Not my ideal dresswatch but I think it's still makes it IMO. Dresswatch covers a broad spectrum of definition doesn't it? Borrow something from wus.
I know that a pocketwatch is also up in your list 😉post #45131 of 483127/14/15 at 6:55ampost #45132 of 483127/14/15 at 7:06amQuote:Originally Posted by gopherblue
Attended the NY Horological Society's introductory Watchmaking 101 class last night, with three other lucky participants, including @tigerpac. We spent two hours in one-on-one instruction with certified graduate watchmakers from Rolex's RSC, learning about, disassembling and reassembling ETA 6497 movements.
I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in watches. It was a blast, and gives me even more appreciation for the talent behind my watches.
I got another email about it yesterday, and managed to grab a date in September before they all sold out. Looking forward to it!post #45133 of 483127/14/15 at 8:02amStowa is offering a sport version of the Flieger. The dial looks the same but a wider bezel. Also larger case and increased WR. I usually don't go for their special editions but I kind of like it.
