    Great thread, with some amazing watches.. couldn't resist as my first post- here's one of my more dressier ones which is reserved for special occasions. Anyway, looking forward to educating myself and contributing here having just been browsing for a while

    Totally agreed. The Portuguese and pre-Mark XVI pilot watches are really gorgeous watches--things you'd wear while shooting your Leica. Now they look more like things you'd wear if you were an asshole who spray tans and wears too much cheap cologne.

    Anecdotally I must admit I've seen more and more douchy looking characters with IWC watches rather than the gaudy Rolexes or TAGs their type traditionally sport...

    I was beginning to think that douchebags here had developed better taste and hence started buying IWCs. Now I realise it's just IWC has reshaped it's model lineup to attract the douchy dollar.

    Coincidentally, this is what I'm wearing today...

    ^ i know its about switching things around and having fun, but if i owned a 69 speedy, a 5513 and an IWC mk XV i would always choose one of them over that aquatimer.

    Damm, how long have you waited for the watch?
    I'll definitely have one someday.\\

    B&R is striking again with their heritage watches, this one is my next buy :

    Here's a write-up on similar: http://ablogtoread.com/bell-ross/bel...gtoRead.com%29

    I don't see anything wrong with buying an ETA movement in a custom designed case for a reasonable amount. B&R's are often available for <3K and if you don't want to spend 8 -10K or more to get an in-house movement, barring a few exceptions, then why not?

    Late to the party, but here are some I like. I have a very small wrist (6") and I've emphasized items that I find aesthetically appealing over expensive movements or complications. All are manual movements. Also, I'm not rich. 8^)

    In order: Hamilton Tourneau (original dial), Zenith sterling silver (porcelain redial to replace cracked original), Hamilton gold-filled (redial, watch was my grandfather's), Revue 30s (daily beast).


    I love those. Congratulations.

    Beautiful.

    My next watch is going to be a Doxa... Probably a Caribbean.

    Underrated !

    Steel is real, but gold is bold [​IMG]

    Early 80s Rolex GMT-Master 16758, a transitional model introducting the caliber 3075 with 28,800 vibrations per hour, the quickset date feature and the sapphire crystal on the GMT. A perfect blend of modern and vintage, with the lovely, lovely nipple dial.
