Longines Flagship Heritage, I really like the classic sub dial for second hand and its colours!
I am looking at buying a Titanium Skagen 585XLTMXB. Haven't really heard of the brand before and the price some fairly cheap, just wondering if anyone can comment on the quality of the brand overall. Cheers.
Nice designs, quartz movements from China.
Definitely agree, on the less outlandish and complicated models. Dino speak truth. This one I drool over (I said I would find something uplifting for this page...):
And the obligatory rear shot of course:
My "just right" is probably a no date Oyster, with the non-fluted bezel, on an Oyster bracelet, maybe with the silver dial. And yeah, the stick markers. But I get yours too - very attractive. What draws me to Rolex is always the simplest things - the stainless steel Daytona, the plain black Submariner etc. Although some of the fancier models are appealing, I think their "standards" are so iconic, that sometimes less is more. One day I will have one.
nice rolex up there, and the longines too.
i love journes designs.
also, we bought a rolex turnograph yesterday!
Welcome. Very nice Daytona, there are a few Daytona owners here at the forum. Definitely an iconic watch.
That's a piece I really like. I've also seen one other piece that I think had a moon phase or power reserve that was very handsome (its been a while and I don't follow there watches closely). I do think their simpler pieces are really good looking, now if only they could focus some effort on reliability.
No argument from me. I have a pretty strong black/silver fetish so am drawn to clean combinations of the two. And I like the white gold bezel on the 16014 for a touch of visual interest when you're keeping everything else deliberately understated. Often thought a blue stick dial DJ on a brown leather strap would make a great jeans watch.
(Wanders off to check Chrono24.)
Cheers, DJ and SUB are my favorite watches, they take up around 70% of my wrist time.
wurger, I like that off-white/cream looking dial on your Longines....amps up the overall vintage looks. Wondering if you've ever tried it on a lighter colored strap? I think that would be extra sweet on a honey croc.
mMontebello, nice Daytona. Great all-around watch.
I really like that color as well, but the date is a shame. Nonetheless, a very handsome watch!
Also, great DJ, I really like the black gator strap that you have on it!
This looked pr0n-worthy to me (from Hodinkee) the Piaget Only Watch for 2013 (showing the backside for mimo LOL):
that truly is delectable.
Honestly, that is the only watch that would district me from Patek and AL&S in that price range, other than some indies.
In my opinion, one of the most gorgeous watches I have ever seen. It would be a completely emotional purchase, but damn, that watch is just gorgeous.
I love the sight of the balance wheel sneaking out from the back.
I have been looking at other manufacturers for some time; AP has some classic pieces, and the 15202ST would really be a great companion piece to my PP 5711/1A. However, since I'm also a fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger, the AP ROO T3 just really sings to me for a variety of reasons:
I mean, the case back is something of a robust variety that even a skeptic like mimo would appreciate. BOOM!
I am just kidding.
But I actually know a couple of people who own this piece, and they seem very happy with it. I don't know the gentleman below personally, but I believe he owns at least one AP ROO T3.
