The Watch Appreciation Thread - Page 1786

post #26776 of 35538
Dino is one of the (many) reasons why this thread here is so great. I read more than I post...I don't have many watches, certainly not many great ones, but I love reading and learning here everyday. It's such a pleasure.

I don't know, for some reason or another, I certainly understand the quartz thing. I mean, not enough that I would abandon my mechanicals for a quartz, but I do have an interest in the HEQ segment. I think I would like a SD or Quartz movement in the stable. One thing that I find particularly nice about having one quartz watch (I gave mine to my little brother, who wears it everyday, so it went to a good home) is that when you pick it up, it is ticking away and is keeping perfect time. The low maintenance is nice if you are running late for work, and you need a dress watch or something like that. The perpetual calendar Citizen that keeps time to within ~5-15 seconds a year really interests me. I think it would be a highly practical watch to own, and a great watch to set your others to!

The OQ would also be a great selection smile.gif.

What's wrong with you?!  There is nothing not great about a Sub, it's a clear stand-out!  Actually the JLC was the other "one" in the cheaper selection of course, although I tried on the Grand Ultra Thin and found it a little dull: a little texture on the dial, or even the seconds subdial, or blued hands, or something, would transform it.  It's nice, but as it's all dial too, it just needs a tiny bit more personality.  Like the MUT Moon - which I didn't especially love until I saw it on my wrist, and now I dream about it...

 

The IWC in the fancy collection's cool.  But it's a lot for a pilot watch; I'd be happy with a Stowa to fill that gap.

x2!!!

Most of the Cellinis are pretty small. Top of my head, I believe the Danaos XL is the largest at 38mm (perfect size imo).

 

The 3970 has no rival!  But yeah, the 3940 is so pretty..especially on that blue strap.  Shoes aren't bad either!

 

I looked up that Cellini and it's really quite pretty.  And around for about $7k in gold, so maybe worth CTLion's taking a look.

You have square fingers?

 

I think the OQ looks magnificent.

Wrist shot with friends over breakfast. Also, we are not holding hands in this picture. It just looks that way.

Oh man, there are too many things to say about this picture.

1. You pick your friends interestingly
2. I can just imagine everyone watching you guys while you take this picture
3. This is worse than holding hands
4. This picture reminds me of something girls would do
5. Which hand are you?

Wrong? A whole lot, I'm afraid :-) But I agree that there's nothing not great about a sub; I wore my no-date exclusively for 20+ years, and even after adding a couple of other watches over the last few years I've realised that I would've been fine with just the sub as my OneWatch.

But then it isn't one of those maxi-case monstrosities ;-)

You should see our handbag collection.  Complete with twillys and trinkets.

 

And don't ask what twillys are.  You KNOW what twillys are.

^^ Quite right.

 

I'm guessing Frilly's top right in the pic.  In which case, nice PoW...details please. :)
