And then there's that whole Navitimer thing...903...who needs a GMT anyway?

Ugh.  This fascination is mind-bending.

*Big...maybe that counts as "try hard" in the @Belligero
 book.  But I love the look of it on a bracelet.


I've posted this here before, mimo....not my watch, and I know you already have an Omega....but the so-called "Great White" Seamaster GMT may be worth a look.

Daytona (I know the logistical issues but see if there's an older model in pre-owned or something perhaps) They're all just so damn good smile.gif

Damn, Omega make some good-looking watches.

 

 

This isn't one of them. :nest:

Why troubling? It's not like their profit motive is hidden. I don't think you can call their journalism unbiased. Also, they sell procured watches for goodness sake and horological themed men's accessories (loony). Timezone had a number of collaborative pieces with Minerva back in the day. Then again, TZ is more of a forum than a publication.

My bet is they will unveil a time only Nomos. Then again, if they commission a 38mm Portuguesier with no branding on the face, I'll buy one.

Great Odin's Raven! Tell me of this mesh bracelet.

^ But which one? Hugin or Munin?
post #3340 of 3956
Ha! well, it's not OEM. But pretty high quality in my opinion, and I've also worn it on several other watches, with varying levels of formality.

It's one of the "SHARK" mesh versions from Strap Code.

They've got several choices...different clasp styles, polished or un-polished, etc. Most of them go for around $100 US +/-

Call it the straw that broke the camel's back. And that camel had quite a strong and forgiving back, indeed.

Ugh I've been hoping not to get bit by that bug. It seems dangerous. I'll definitely take a peak.

Gotta say there is some justifiable criticism of Hodinkee. But the watch they just released is really, really good. if I had the disposable income laying around, it would definitely be worth a long hard look.
