You have another wrist.
Have you tried your other wrist?
I've you've got the privilege of wearing a high end watch (I assume so since you are in this thread), then that watch > fitbit!
I wear my Omega Seamaster 300M on my left wrist and Fitbit Charge HR on my right wrist.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
^^^ Quoted for dino's version of the so-called "sex pile" ha ha! Very nice group of timepieces ^^^ Re: the two-tone Royal Oak, I think the grayish dial is what really makes that watch work for me....it just wouldn't be the same with a champagne (or white, or any other color) dial, IMO. Also, I'm not a fitbit guy, but I do own a Timex Ironman. And sometimes I even exercise while wearing it!
Wearing it on the opposite wrist is annoying. All my shirts are cut with the cuffs to accommodate a watch on the left, not on the right.
Then I'm afraid you have backwards compatibility issues.
A friend trying on the JLC duometre à quantième lunaire enamel dial. Certainty a watch to appreciate.
It's just a quartz, but I liked the look of it (this is the version with the applied indices [not the more recent, neutered version], and in pristine condition) and got a good deal on it. Very happy with this:
And two book covers for novels I'm working on with two friends of mine
I should have mentioned in the group photo (or as Keith called it, the "Sex pile") the Oysterquartz is 36mm. So with that photo you get a side by side idea of 36 mm vs. 39 mm.
Thanks Bro! Agreed, the grey/dark silver dial seems to really work nicely on the old tutone RO. Cheers!
I'd like to hear some opinions or feedback on two specific watches. These are borderline "poor man's," and I've posted in that thread as well, but I'm always impressed with the amount of knowledge and insight present in this thread, and I hope to get some info that will help me make a decision. I'm planning on this being my everyday casual watch. Generally, I'm not a fan of pilot watches, but I feel these are versatile and don't have the feel of a "true" flieger.
My only other watches are two dress watches, one on brown leather, and ones on black, that I wear with a suit to work. I originally found the Oris and was set to buy it, until I came across the other one on Jomashop.
I'd go with the Oris myself, purely because I'm more familiar with that brand than the other, but I'm no expert.
I love the overall design of the PanoMatic. If they would just not label the date window and power reserve I might go for one.
Your honor, I'd like that last remark stricken from the record.
Good point. Without all that text, it would look like a mysterious and magical laboratory.
Damn thing. It's not that I like it more or less than a Lange, I like it differently. But the more I see it, the more I remember how lovely it is to hold and look at. It's a thoroughly peculiar watch from a peculiar brand. Too big, but not sporty; like a Lange 1, but not; German but not Bauhaus; arty but not effete. It's a Marmite kind of thing for sure (British cultural reference, look it up!), but it really can tug at the heartstrings. The strap is disproportionately important to that effect, I suspect.
I wonder how that strap would work on a Senator Perpetual...
