Yeah, it's becoming our annual spring destination. The Banyan Tree there is really special. Can't recommend it highly enough. Here's the view from our pool villa:

My big chunky divers for Mimo

Serious the chrono diver from JLC is nice and I actually like the color scheme. I think that monster comes in at 46 mm if I'm not mistaken which is too big even for my taste.

That JLC Duo is something else. Hey now that Frills has popped his Sub cherry should we egg him onto a JLC? !!

Dino I agree with you about all these so called special editions. After a while it becomes an obvious marketing scheme. However I will reaffirm that I do like the overall look off many of the Offshores. I think AP has put out a lot of quality options for their sports watches and i like the variety. I've held the Jumbo and the Volcano side by side and while many will think I'm crazy to compare them, I just felt like they were both great watches.

The 39mm case definitely makes it a more subtle size for suit accompaniment.  But I have to say it didn't sing to me.  Maybe it's how brightly the subdials stand out, or just that I'm not used to the layout.  Maybe it's that I don't really like day-dates for reasons I can't quite fathom - something along the lines of not usually needing to be told the day of the week!  Or maybe it's the more gentle size with the mean black dial not quite floating together.  Each to his own.  This one's a Royal Oak, so it's nice.  But it's not lighting any fires for me.  Weirdly, I like it more now that I'm looking at the picture of it, than I did when it was in my hand.  The absence of other ROs and things around it might be helping!


It looks like a noncommittal owl.

(Aaaand now reading further along I see Dino's already made that observation.)

Random question for owners of white gold pieces -- how much do you really have to baby them?

Further edit: I'm in London next week so of course I've been noodling around the usual Bond St. shops on Chrono24, when suddenly ...

OK, good. Then it's not just me.

Is there a "I have $500 and want to build a solid watch rotation" guide? Total beginner. Thanks.

Ahem...

 

Check out Jomashop and don't be afraid of the Seiko 5s.

 

Hope all is well with everyone :)

I have been looking at a couple of hamiltons lately, not a bad deal at the $500 price point.

He mentions that he wants a rotation, so I took that as that he'd want at least a few watches for his $500...?

Could be I took it as he wanted one watch to start building a rotation. You could be right though?
