    It's a subjective opinion like everything else, but I think that it looks out of place on a 20 year old, with the way most young people dress and the design of the watch. In my world I would say that you have to be over 30 to make it look good, maybe even 40.

    Um, it's a transport company that transport goods, people so forth and on. I'l be meeting new/old clients together with my dad so as to get me familiarized with the customers! I would think a shirt and work pants with a tie on normal days, occasionally suiting up. This may sound pretty stupid but, i'm actually looking for a watch that i like ( simplicity of the design / the little things like the blue hands in the Dornbluth, the reverso) and something that i can hand down to my kids in maybe 20 years time!



    I think it actually depends on how you wear it, the things you do, and the words you say? Although i will have to agree you that people who don't know (e.g people walking on the streets.) would think that you're just carrying a fake. But they don't matter, the people who matter, are the people that you're gonna come into contact with!



    Thanks! I think i shall start hunting for a vintage patek!

    oh sure I agree... 20 is quite young and a Reverso is not appropriate.... kinda like what akatsuki said. But I wouldn't call a 30-40 year old man "old"!! yikes... whattaya call 'em when they hit 60? :lol:

    Dont agree here at all. If a young classy guy wears it (just the nicest thing to see, for me)

    In watches there is nothing for old and young wearing, it's all about the feeling for the watch and how you wear it.

    anyone know about these? just something I stumbled across and only did some cursory research. I've never been too fond of lug-less designs but it's part of the minimalist vibe they're going for.. just curious.

    Dunno, Kid.

    I've looked at 'em as well. It's a clean æsthetic, but they're a little big for me (41mm or so, if memory serves), and also rather thick, and that cylindrical shape makes the clean dial designs not go under a shirt cuff too well.

    I don't ultimately care about the luglessness, there's probably a springbar in there, but they don't seem to have a coherent mission.

    They were in an A Blog To Read article last year I think. I don't remember why but I remember not liking something more than the design. Probably price and canned movement.

    I dislike the reverso arabics. Wish it had more oomph like in some black faced models I see..
