    How useful can they be if they are not on time?

    I'd say the Cartier tank -- it's the only one besides the B&M to the left of it, that looks timeless & elegant. Â The Seiko's okay for sport, I suppose.
    The JL doesn't look elegant and classic, neither the Patek does? Seiko = for casual
    Patek is okay, I guess. Â For Bourgeois. Â But that particular style appears unremarkable. JL I no like. Â Too Movado-esque and stylized minimalism. Also I no like the Omega with small second hand -- I know that many old Omegas have this, I just no like.

    Have you ever seen it in real? Put it on your wrist? I assure you it is remarkable, i wouldn't have paid so much for a banal watch... And this is THE Patek style you reconize easily even if it is not trendy nowadays.

    Funny comparaison. Same question as for Patek.
    Yes it is minimalist but not more than the Patek.

    I thought you didn't like too minimalist watches?

    What about the watches you like the less or dislike?

    Boucheron, B&M or Seiko ?

    Oops. I misread the post and didn't see your pictures. I thought were asking about the brands in general. I didn't realize you were asking about your watches specifically.

    I think the Boucheron is the only one I begin to like and even it has flaw(s). The rest...

    top row: too sleek 80s looking; too big; too ugly
    bottom row: looks okay but it's really hard to see; hate the metal band; nice deco style though the band leaves a bit to be desired; ugh, what a horrible oval shape.

    You don't like oval? Why?

    Can you show me some pics of watches you like cause you seem to like nothing = no round, no oval, no bracelet, no sport watch...

    (scnupe7 @ June 22 2005,21:21) Where are IWC and/or None of the above? If I had to choose one I would probably say the Jaeger. Â I like the Dualmatic.

    You thought i would have put Boucheron and B&M and Seiko and NOT Vacheron, AP or Breguet?

    I actually like the Seiko best, asthetically.

    The others are nice, but not for me. At least from what I can see in that pic. In person I think my opinion might change.

    Yes as =

    pic
    real
    on wrist

    = 3 differents things.


    The JL is dull on pic, nice in hand and wonderfull on wrist for exemple.

    Same for the Patek.

    Exactly what I was thinking. I was intrigued by the JL, but from the pic it doesn't appear to be anything special. The Patek is fantastic I am sure, personally I am not fond of the shape.

    Check my second link for the JL. I like the oval shape because you don't see many = original
