I know you said not SS, but how about the Geophysic line from JLC? I like the True Second and it also comes in YG:



I am a fan of simple-looking watches with a complication (e.g. tourbillon visible only on the back; minute repeater; etc.) and have always wanted a watch with deadbeat seconds (the second hand „jumps“ each second instead of sweeping). Although Grönefeld, FPJ and AL&S all offer watches with the „seconde morte“ complication, the JLC TS is the only one from a mainstream watch company for the moment (Rolex stopped making the Tru-Beat decades ago).

Anyways, you‘ll need to try it first. Although I liked the watch on paper, I found the case a bit too large and thick for my tastes, plus I prefer watches without date.
These are beautiful (I also love the simple Master Control Date), but perhaps not quite rugged enough? I have a Datejust and a vintage Omega DeVille that I wear as quasi-dress watches. I'm looking for a more casual and rugged (tool) watch. I already have a diver and a chrono, so I was thinking pilot, but still open...

Fellas......have a question for those who might know: my Submariner ref 114060 doesn’t seem to hold its power reserve for more than 24 hrs. I just bought it in August 2020 from Wempe NYC.

I’m not sure if this is an actual performance issue or something I’m doing/not doing but I could wear the watch all day and let it sit overnight for about 12 -14 hours and it will stop ticking.

If anyone can shed some light before I contact the AD/Rolex it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I’d contact the AD. Rolex says it should be around 70 hours.

Try winding it 20-30 times tomorrow morning, see if the same thing happens. If it does, you have a problem. If it doesnt, you probably arent moving enough throughout the day to wind the rotor.

I didn't realize Chopard and Kiton did a cobranded piece. What do folks think of it?

Pretty mediocre and uninspired to me. And with the notable exception of the Explorer, I dislike the mixing of the numerals and stick indexes. Also the official description refers to "sprezzaturra", so, you know...

Still mostly wearing the Apple Watch for the biometrics but dug this out of the drawer today and it made me happy enough that I've still got it on.

Don't you know that you can go anywhere and sell your Rolex for enough to get a plane ticket home?
You joke, but I knew guys who worked in those certain restricted parts of a few American embassies (not me) who wore Rolex precisely because they considered it "liquid currency on their wrist" that they could cash in anywhere.

Thanks for this......I’ve probably never wound it since I bought it. I wound it about 40 times just now so let’s see what happens tomorrow.

You ever think about getting the bracelet for the ROO?
Yup. The 42mm bracelet is a beautiful thing. To date, have not got my shit together enough.
