SS, the opinions of an unemployed (and french) leech (on an internet message board nonetheless.) matter less than zero to me, so why waste time retaliating?   PHV, don't worry about it, your watches are cool (and for men)
1) What would it changed if I had been employed ? Yes, if I was employed, I would spend so much time here and so would look less good at your watches. So as you are employed, do you want to say that your job and your life is under zero? Otherwise you would have something else to do than being there...

ernest, actually what I mean is that your opinion isn't important to me at all. If I was going to take advice from anyone about style on this board, it certainly wouldn't be you. The fact that you dislike matching ties/pocket squares and sport watches with suits makes them more attractive to me, in fact

What would this thread be if we didnt link the other one here as well... Ahhh... Such fond memories... The Kalra Flamefest ernest...The New Kalra. JJF

Whom would you take advice from? Not from 80% of the forum then...

No, I just like my watches. You look like you're getting very angry. I think you should calm down, and refrain from talking to me again until you're in my tax bracket. .
That's exactly the problem = you like them Why do you like your watches? What is tax bracket?
What's wrong with liking something? I don't wear any of my watches because they are well known like Rolex. Very few people know that I wear Cartiers (which aren't that expensive compared to most high end watches). I like the Panther because it is very simple and elegant, and I like my Vermeil because the brown strap is beautiful, richly textured leather and the small gold case really goes nicely with it. They are very understated watches. Why do you think it's so bad to like a watch? I think my Cartiers are very plain, not flashy. I don't like flashy watches.
Is your Tank a quartz one? I do not like your watches because : _ They must be quartz ones _ The panter looks like a watch for women. It may look well on an old fashioned gay (the shopkeeper of h&k Paris, an old sissy with golden bracelet on his wrists, dyed hair... has the same watch in gold...) but of a guy of 19 it looks not well. _ Yellow gold looks tacky on Panter.
Yes, they are both Quartz. First of all I believe Panthers only come in quartz, and second of all why would I need a watch that has some sort of advanced movement? Actually the next watch I am buying is an automatic, but not because of the movement. How would wearing a quartz watch take away from the fact that A) You like the look of the watch B) The time is accurate within a few seconds a year. That's all I want from a watch. The Panther I only wear on formal occasions, because it is very understated, and small. I am a violinist, so I am not going to wear a large watch like your Patek or a bulky Breitling on my wrist, it would not be as comfortable as a very small watch like a Panther, which makes for easier playing.

My Patek is larger than other ellipses but not large at all and it is very slim (though it is an automatic watch) You like watches, that's already a good point. Enjoy them. I guess you will prefer mecanic watches when you will be older... Hahe you got some pictures of your watches?

Do you need a watch when you play? Try the master ultra thin of JL...

I don't need a watch, but the Panther nicely complements the Brioni tux and Santonis (I think I'm going to get some custom fitted EGs). It is useful to have a watch on you around the time of a performance. I don't like pocket watches. To this day I still don't appreciate mechanical watches. My dad loves his Pateks and his Lange. He says quartz watches are boring. I don't really understand. Quartz keeps very good time, and many of them look very good, therefore fulfilling my purposes. I don't like the ultra thin JL. To me it looks ultra ugly. There are some JL watches that are stunning, but the ultra thin does not look pleasing at all to me. Most of the pictures I have of me you cant really see my watches well. I think in one you canse see the band of the Panther.

Yes. I think it looks like a really really old man watch. Feeling is nice, but it looks like something my grandpa would wear. I like plain watches, but that is like brown bread without any butter or jam....

Actually I do take advice from only a few select members, and style is personal in the end, wear what makes you happy. I kinda liked what I saw from the Zenith collection, I may look into one of those as well for future watches. I will probably pick up the CA in titanium before the end of the year, I think I do like it better than the Emergency Mission (which only comes in stainless). The flagship Tourneau in the forum shops had some new pateks that were interesting, one of the new complicated watches they had was fairly interesting, not sure how to describe it, but it was a chronograph type watch with two separate dials, one for day of the week and another for timing, I believe it was like $50k in wg, but I could have been mistaken, I was browsing there when a guy bought one, I thought the gunmetal one that I posted earlier was a bit nicer though, almost pulled the trigger on some watches from "Horologico" in the Venetian, nice prices and very nice people, they have a nice selection of watches as well including JLC, Breitling, IWC, etc... and they can get Zenith as well afaik.

Often the same guy who are wearing a tie, a bespoke suit braces and nice oxfords... Just look classic.
