I guess I will have to compete in order to win the title deservedly mine.

To be the champ, you gotta win?

 

Something like that, anyway.

Dress watches:

As @MZhammer pointed out, there are a lot of subcategories, so I changed top 5 to top 10 for these less expensive watches, to allow for more latitude.

 

Enjoy (I know that I will).

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Both your links go to the top 5 sports watch thread

I haven't been wearing this as much lately.
That needs to change.
The red hands and date make this watch.
I prefer 38/39mm ideally, but 36mm still suits my small wrist well.



LOVE IT!!!

i was wearing mine today too!!

What would you guys think about us holding a little contest?  Something like who can think of the best watches under $1K, the best under $5K, and the best under, say, $15K (I am not going to buy a $20K watch just yet.)  I could make 3 different threads, and then we could vote on the best list.  We'd make it interesting.  So, winner in each category (with a minimum of say, 15 entries per category,) would get a special title related to watches, and a Drake's tie from Greg's store, to match one of the watches on the list.  We could vote on the tie as well.  Any interest?

Cheers,

Fok.

this should be fun. im a bit distracted at the moment but i hope i can play along.

Fixed.

I wish Rolex would make a Turnograph with a brushed top of the case and no PCLs.
post #31271 of 33939
could not disagree more. on the wrist i think the brushed to non brushed surfaces ratios are placements are perfection. especially given the polished fluted bezel.

obviously biased here though.

Black Bay on burgundy shell cordovan strap.
My biggest complaint about this watch was the OEM distressed strap.
It felt cheap.



Great combination and very nice colors....compliments
