Re: New Breitling Avenger Collection

Thanks Tom, like the GMT. Don't know why you'd black DLC a titanium case, but any how. Also Breitling should have left the lume white not piss colour. I'd be getting any of these pre owned, and saving the huge depreciation hit for someone else. This one is DLC Ti and piss lume but I love it. The vi...

Zodiac event with Andy Mann

I just wanted to invite everyone to our upcoming Zodiac event. It'll be a pretty big one and it'll be dive watch-centric this time around. We'll be joined by Andy Mann, the famous ocean conservationist, diver and photographer, in addition to Worn & Wound. There'll be a Zodiac watchmaker assembling m...

Re: Recent Work trip to London

That's awesome. It's one of my dreams to visit the British Isles before I kick the bucket. My mother got back from her first trip to England just a couple of months ago actually, she loved it.

Re: Breitling's Aviator 8 Mosquito

I like it, but Breitling wants too much for their stuff. Give it 6 months and see what an AD will offer it to you for. I’ve found unless limited editions they rarely go for close to full retail.

Re: New Breitling Avenger Collection

They used to have the most luxurious looking dials in their price range. I don't think that's true anymore. Breitling usually comes off as trying too hard to me. They offer some of the busiest designs in the business, at least from a big name brand. Obviously, there are exceptions like the Superoce...

Re: Marc from Island Watches Now Selling

The fact that these cases, bezels, crystals, crowns, and movements are all available from Crystal Times does seem to make his “own watch brand” a bit easier to do. Maybe he’s making his own stuff, but I doubt it. Design your own dial, assemble, sell, enjoy profit. Seems pretty straightforward. I su...

Re: New Tag Heuer Emerald Green Aquaracers

That's a good point. It's a more accessible pronunciation to English speakers. On the other hand, with a brand as popular as Heuer, it seems like they could get that out in commercials and so on.

In my mind, even the addition of TAG to the name in the beginning was a mistake.

Re: Tudor BB Chrono 'All Blacks'

I love how it looks, but they are turning out to be super hard to get. Apparently their total number is limited to the total number of players for the All Blacks, and one will be added for each future player. It's a very odd strategy for such a mainstream design.

I don’t know why they haven’t removed the TAG from the logo. Heuer is so much better.
I agree. I always just call them Heuers in conversation.

Re: Zenith El Primero A384 Revival Review

The simple case doesn’t do it for me, though the size is primo. I love the case shape - different than the run-of-the-mill round case. The size is my only concern. Different strokes... I was worried about both the case shape and size, but was pleasantly surprised when I saw it and tried it on yeste...

They’re gonna need to invent a buyer for that watch. It's pretty crazy, but surprisingly it's doing super well. We couldn't even get one in to review, this is actually a Zenith employee's personal watch he loaned to us for it. Of course, that's as much a product of supply as is demand, since they m...

Re: An Introduction to Credor

They are getting better, at least. The hand wound spring drives are finally starting to make it into Grand Seikos and wow does it make a difference in person. I wouldn't call the SBGY003 an ultra-thin, but it really looked and felt a lot thinner than other Grand Seikos.

I like this a lot, but even at 40.2mm a dressy mostly dial watch is too big for me. At 38x11mm I’d probably sell something and buy this. I'm really hoping they come out with a 38mm Snowflake option at some point. They do currently offer a 38.5mm SBGZ001, but it's so wildly expensive that for most S...

Re: GS Blue Snowflake SBGA407 Review

Something about that case style just seems cheap to me. It's too close to their Presage line. Even that crown looks cheap. I guess I just like my GS with the more angular cases, with brushed and polished surfaces. I think an all-polished case can come off cheap to many people. If you could handle i...
