The IWC Portugieser 40 mm straddles the line between business formal and casual quite nicely. @George Red has the blue-dial version.I’ve thought about consolidating my watch collection, I have a few that I’ve bought over the years and are similar to (but not quite as nice as) others in my collection. The idea would be a three watch collection, Monaco, 16600 Sea Dweller and a third watch. It would need to work with a suit and casual outfits, be slim enough to slip under a cuff easily (the other two are fairly thick) and provide something different to the other two sport watches. Don’t mind if it’s gold or steel.
I’m not saying I’ll actually do it, but people’s ideas would be interesting. Budget would probably be up to £7k or so, but could be more for something special.
Well, some people feel the two-tone version is historically the right model to get, since that is how the Santos de Cartier was originally released in 1978. The all gold and the all steel came later.RE: Santos, I have an irrational attraction to the two-tone version. I‘m not normally a fan of TT, but think it really fits on the Santos.
Why would it be an issue having 2 square watches in a 3 watch collection. I know guys that own 5 watches and all of them are round. Square or other non-round shaped watches are cool and stand out in a sea of people all wearing round watches. Plus the Santos looks totally different on a metal bracelet, leather strap, or rubber strap. It's really like having 3 watches in one.The Santos is attractive, but comes with the same 2 square watches in a 3 watch collection issue, and Datejusts are great watches, but there isn’t really a Goldilocks case size for me and I’d like for the 3rd watch to not be another Rolex.
Oh, I didn‘t realize that! I‘ve been looking for an all gold watch on a bracelet and thought about the Santos, but much prefer it as TT. I guess your comment is justification for that.Well, some people feel the two-tone version is historically the right model to get, since that is how the Santos de Cartier was originally released in 1978.
