    Do tell?

    There is a Mark XV on TZ right now for 2200. Looks about 90% or better. Very tempted.

    PM?
    To be frank, I have a personal dislike for casual watches lol - I have a Planet Ocean in Orange and I wear it only sparingly on serious casual days.
    I feel its easier to dress down a dressy watch than to dress up a casual watch.

    I would say the Mark XV could be dressed up easily because of it's simplicity, however, if you don't like casual watches you are cutting out divers, pilots/navigators and most chronos. I think you are missing out.

    I never understood the idea behind you know the people who have all casual watches in their collection
    like the people on rolex forum? they got Sub, Deepsea, GMT, Explorer II, Yachtmaster
    I respect all of those watches, but no offense to real rollie enthusiasts and purists, but they really all do look strikingly similar

    Why do you need a watch on 'serious' casual days?

    So with all the shenanigans going on in WAYWRN, I wonder if Sir F's watches were fabrications as well?

    Ahem, the rolex at the store pic?

    because a gentleman wears a watch ... :smarmy:

    and it fits the wardrobe man..
    if i'm wearing a lot of bright casual colors ... then a contrasting orange planet ocean sets it off better

    A gentleman's gentleman may wear a watch, but a gentleman cares not for the servitude of time.
