Thank you, I had my eye on shadow as well and then released Safari & this, and I chose this.I love my Shadow that I posted above, but I think if I were shopping new today I would have had a harder choice to make with this available. I've always been fond of the regular tri-color El Primero, but this one speaks to me more.
Thank you!Also, that strap is SICK.
Ironically, I was in Tourneau two weeks ago to look at another watch, and the sales rep recommended I look at Nomos -- you can imagine what I said! Interestingly, what most disturbed her, too, as your point, that their lack of a response to my concerns was the most serious issue. She was actually filing a complaint with them for me, which I appreciated, but I don't expect anything to come of it.Some of it may speak to the quality of lack thereof, but also what I find disturbing is the customer service - lack of contact/lack of follow up - essentially leaving the owner in the dark. Any watch (or other product) can have a problem/and or need a repair, but it is how the company handles it, and how good their repair department is at dealing with it that helps me determine if I would ever buy another product from them.
If we're being honest, it's been at least a decade since people have "needed" a dress watch. Standards are such that most typical sport watches on a bracelet will work perfectly fine in the vast majority of "dressy" occasions. For the vast majority of situations where say a speedy won't work, you probably don't need a watch at all. For genuinely formal occasions, there is no need to wear any watch - unless you are working an event you probably don't need to know time with any level of precision, if at all. A lot of the "rules" around wristwatches are incredibly outdated, even more so today when the Apple watch is the best-selling watch year after year.All good points. Here's a valid question: Has COVID diminished the need for a dress watch? I haven't been to a wedding in over a year. My tux is collecting dust. When I go to court, I do it by Zoom. Do we need dress watches anymore?
I'm with several of the others....bye bye TAG!Thanks for all the replies......I'm not surprised at the feedback tbh. However, moving the TAG is dependent on my next purchase (SS Daytona), in which case the FOIS would go as well since I don't need 2 chronos. However, if I get a 36MM DD then I have some other decisions to make........shit never ends
Actually, the only times I've noticed judges wearing interesting watches, both were on the bench and one was wearing a 16610LV Green/Kermit Submariner, and another time a judge was wearing a Panerai.It's not like the judge is going to be able to see what is hiding underneath my shirt cuff. So I don't think anyone needs a dress watch. It's all about wants.
Much the same for me- I've only noticed two judges wearing interesting watches, a guy wearing a Panerai and a woman wearing a rose gold Rolex.Actually, the only times I've noticed judges wearing interesting watches, both were on the bench and one was wearing a 16610LV Green/Kermit Submariner, and another time a judge was wearing a Panerai.
