Anecdotally I must admit I've seen more and more douchy looking characters with IWC watches rather than the gaudy Rolexes or TAGs their type traditionally sport...

I was beginning to think that douchebags here had developed better taste and hence started buying IWCs. Now I realise it's just IWC has reshaped it's model lineup to attract the douchy dollar.

Coincidentally, this is what I'm wearing today...

^ i know its about switching things around and having fun, but if i owned a 69 speedy, a 5513 and an IWC mk XV i would always choose one of them over that aquatimer.

B&R is striking again with their heritage watches, this one is my next buy :


Here's a write-up on similar: http://ablogtoread.com/bell-ross/bel...gtoRead.com%29

I don't see anything wrong with buying an ETA movement in a custom designed case for a reasonable amount. B&R's are often available for <3K and if you don't want to spend 8 -10K or more to get an in-house movement, barring a few exceptions, then why not?

In order: Hamilton Tourneau (original dial), Zenith sterling silver (porcelain redial to replace cracked original), Hamilton gold-filled (redial, watch was my grandfather's), Revue 30s (daily beast).

I love those. Congratulations.

Beautiful.

My next watch is going to be a Doxa... Probably a Caribbean.

Underrated !

Steel is real, but gold is bold

Early 80s Rolex GMT-Master 16758, a transitional model introducting the caliber 3075 with 28,800 vibrations per hour, the quickset date feature and the sapphire crystal on the GMT. A perfect blend of modern and vintage, with the lovely, lovely nipple dial.
