    Attended Wind UP NYC Friday night. Went through it in 1.5-2hrs.

    Every vendor was super nice and engaging. Most were offering 20% off. Nice to try on 50 watches without obligation or a sales pitch.

    Some highlights that may or may not fit in here. But not necessarily part of the they thread either. So enjoy

    Interesting just yesterday I was looking at Farer's site. IRL they look too huge.

    They arnt huge IRL. Not at all.

    They’re on the smaller scale. Just how close I took those particular photos is probably skuing how they look. The straps were also so stiff and new they were sitting up high on my wrist.

    That white faced Stanhope is a 37mm handhound. Probably the smallest watch of the whole bunch aside from that 36 Oris.

    @CanadaCal I really like the Autodromo Group B. Thinking about getting one. I have a Prototipo and absolutely love it. They do great work.

    First Oris Big Crown fits your wrist the best, proportionally. Grey dial Junhouse is interesting and the last watch with Navy enamel dial is also very good looking dress watch.
    The rest are blah, especially those Farers that look like microbrand designed by committee.

    The Junghans line was the most comfortable and best fitting for my wrist overall.
    The Anordains are basic but beautiful with the enamel.
    Cream version here.

    Very interesting closure and super comfortable bracelet design on that Group B. If you like the styling go for it. Won’t be disappointed.

    Nice strap pairing on that Omega.


    Bronze Oris is the best, imo. Monta GMT is not bad.
