I really love the El Primero striking 10th, as well as the 38 mm El Primero. Stunning watches, with a great heritage, that look even better in the flesh. Zenith encouragingly seems to be getting back on a track since the current CEO took over.post #9814 of 483121/16/12 at 12:33ampost #9815 of 483121/16/12 at 10:10ampost #9816 of 483121/16/12 at 11:59ampost #9817 of 483121/16/12 at 12:45pmpost #9818 of 483121/16/12 at 1:12pmpost #9819 of 483121/16/12 at 2:46pmpost #9820 of 483121/16/12 at 3:11pmpost #9821 of 483121/16/12 at 3:12pm
Thanks, and to anyone else I may have missed!
But on to the IWC issue. Although that Pilot watch is not my favorite [actually it looks ridiculous], I do believe that IWC is going back to the right direction. The only thing that I worry about is that they are going to "Paneria" or "Royal Oak" their collection. By this, I mean taking the pilot watch style and tweaking it in a variety of ways. I think the beauty of pilot watches is in their understated look. However, it does look like they are going to be introducing more in-house movements with their Spitfire range, among others. I guess this is a good thing, although I do think that IWC benefits from having their lower-range, ETA-driven movements. I have a feeling that more and more of their watches are going to become unattainable for the majority of folks.
*Edited to actually make a point.post #9822 of 483121/16/12 at 3:13pmpost #9823 of 483121/16/12 at 5:24pmTime to update my watches - my old Bulgari Sport Chrono is just tiny by today's standards. Going to put a baby blue leather strap on it and give it to the wife.
So.... new daily wearer time. And the options so far are:
- JLC Master Compressor Diving Pro
Comments- the blue detailing pops, in-house movement, JLC quality
- Glashutte Original Sport Evolution
Comments- seems like an SF favorite, no real heritage, but quality is good
- Breguet Type XXI
Comments- a bit rarer than the other two, but movement is also used in a couple of other watches; brown face is kind of cool, but overall maybe a bit bland?
I don't like the GP Sea Hawk II too much... Any other suggestions for a nice dive watch?
Also, it is silly to buy a gold dive watch?post #9824 of 483121/16/12 at 5:35pmHave you thought about the JLC Navy Seals watch?
Here is a nice review of it:
Navy Seal gimmick aside, I think that is my favorite of the JLC dive watches currently in production. However, I think that this one [coming out soon] is my favorite, the new JLC Deep Sea Vintage Chrono:
Also, another option could by the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, one of the most [if not THE most] iconic dive watches out there:
If I was looking for a dive watch in your price range, this would easily be my pick.post #9825 of 483121/16/12 at 5:43pmQuote:
I think I might buy a cheaper black diver for a gym/banging around watch. And I definitely hate all the pseudo-military bullshit that watch companies put out, most of the teams wear G-shocks. If I ever start a watch company, I am going to fucking name the watches after different My Little Ponies and Care Bears and make my ad campaign about how wearers of my watches have such big dicks, they need to tone their shit down to walk among ordinary men.
