wow, thats so coolPlease excuse the slightly commercial tone of my post, but I am super, super excited to tell you that we (Atelier Wen) will be launching (on Kickstarter) in les than 12 hours! I have been working on the brand for the past year and a half, and it is amazing to finally see it come to life!
So rendez-vous tomorrow (19/10) at Noon GMT+2!
A few old pics that I really like!
IMO, you are going to regret the purchase of 40mm 'dress watch'. I have 7.5 wrist and would not dream of wearing 40mm watch without 4mm bezel. These dress watches are all white dial ,so they are going to look gigantic. Also, I 'd like to add that none of them are real guilloche, I had experience with Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece coll. which retails for 5 times these models and even that watch was stamped varnish finish imitating guilloche.I think my guilloche-but-otherwise-austere-dial search has narrowed in on the Seiko Sakura Hubuki Limited Edition and the Oris Artelier Date Silver (even though at 40mm they're larger than I really want). How does everyone feel about those, quality-wise? Is ~$550 too much for a Seiko? And these listings I'm seeing for the Oris NIB @ ~$650 (under half of retail) can't be legit, right?
Am I wrong to be looking at new watches rather than looking for a deal on something vintage? Especially since I'm interested in smaller size?
Sorry, don't know of any near me. While I like rose gold with steel, I wish the bracelet matched the watch with some rose gold . I find it sort of mismatched when a watch has gold on various parts around the watch case (Say bezel, pushers, crown, and dial) but there is no gold on the bracelet to tie it together.Yeah, it's the Apollo 15, 35th anniversary edition.

A good friend of mine has Speedy Pro from before the days when companies were increasing case sizes to keep up with the "Big Watch" trend. He's 6' tall and about 200 lbs and IMHO, it always looked good on him. So I didn't see a need for a bigger Speedy. However, I agree with you "Reduced" sounds like better marketing for a food item...reduced fat, reduced sodium, reduced sugar etc.What do you think about the size of the Speedy Pro vs. the Speedy reduced on the wrist? There is another example of someone at Omega being really bad at marketing. They could have easily called the thing the "Speedmaster 40" or something. "Reduced" is generally not a great selling point. That said, I really do appreciate that level of clunkiness and maybe inadvertent honesty, once again.
pic?I already have a Daytona, albeit one that looks pretty much the opposite of that colorwise. I'm not even a huge Omega fan, but I liked the look of that particular piece, and a few other rose gold containing Speedies. I guess that there is a rose gold Daytona that is pretty great, but $23k prices me out.
