It’s not their first gold Sub
Ohh I know, it's not the material that I take offense to, it's the wholly arbitrary price. I don't honestly think they have or had any intent of selling (I mean, to sell, you have to have buyers) or even producing these – it's just to get people talking.

I can see the decision-makers around the table, planning this out. That meeting definitely ended with a, "ehhh, why not?".

doxa's totally lost the plot

Clearly the brand was trying to make a statement at Basel with the gold T-Graph, but I'd argue that the statement is "we have no idea what we're doing anymore" or "how much is gold supposed to cost?" https://i.imgur.com/K5pf9a9l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/vTw9VSVl.jpg Easily the most baffling watch of ...

Re: WTF, G-Shocks are shrinking - new Gravitymaster

New Quad Sensor Mudmaster is smaller too. They've redesigned the buttons and messed with the bezel a little bit to reduce the visual footprint, though I think the physical case size is the same?

Re: If you had to pare down your collection to 2 watches.......

My LMLE for sure, but after that, it's a legit toss-up. Probably between the Geophysic True Seconds, PAM 655, or just my Pelagos two-liner from forever ago.

other than the dial, it looks a little bland to me.
The case is actually really nicely designed – has some neat lines and textures to break things up a bit. And the H-link is my favorite type of bracelet. I really dig this one.

It's getting kinda shit on in the comments (that's my photo on ABTW), but this thing is seriously nice.

On a somewhat related note is Mike Pearson back at bremont now?
Correct – he's their new Head of Business Development in North America. Great role for him – puts him back in the community and working with key accounts.

Re: any rose gold in the BOD?

This one was kinda abused by the previous owner, so it definitely needed a full service. In addition, crystal was scratched, etc... all-in-all, the estimate for the service and parts replacement was about $2k and 11 weeks turnaround, which is really not all that bad considering the level of effort ...

Yup, RG bezel, crown and handset (that's oddly my favorite detail – no white seconds hand), and an SS case and ceramic insert. Tone of the gold matches the cream indexes perfectly, now I just need a good black 21mm rubber strap...

Re: any rose gold in the BOD?

Omega watches in precious metals tank spectacularly on the second-hand market though, so they usually represent pretty good bargains relatively. You just have to wait for the first sucker to buy the watch you want and get tired of it. Finally did exactly that. Just landed today :grin: https://i.img...

Re: New Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss Warhawk collection

Cool watch, but nothing about this, or about any of the other new stuff really says 'Breitling' to me anymore. I'd almost get a Bremont over this, and support the little guys.
