682 with a ceramic bezel would be pretty sweet.

(SIHH) heading over to Panerai for an early preview...

Not humblebragging, I promise (ok, maybe a little). But I'm about to head over for an early preview of Panerai's new stuff ahead of its unveiling later this week at SIHH. Some of it I've already seen in PDF form, and if the popularity of the 682 around here is any indication, well, it should be a fu...

Re: New Oris Dive Control Limited Edition

Funny, it's not the massive size that lost me, but the giant DIVE CONTROL wordmark at 11:00.

Super cool, but in all honesty – who the hell buys these?

Re: 2019 Watch Goals

Genuinely pretty happy with the collection at the moment, but would love a Polaris or a Geophysic. Also passed on a two-tone Seamaster 300 Master Co-Ax this year, and wouldn't mind making that right.

Re: 2018 ins & outs

Had a crazy summer for the 'in' column, and feel like I really need to reign it in for 2019. Landed these four, with a good deal of reduction in the rest of the collection: https://i.imgur.com/p5bmscql.jpg https://i.imgur.com/n3YDdrEl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/6PRa9XQl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/rXuVKh6l...

Re: new blancpain fifty fathoms automatique

Looks good though I maybe would have liked to have seen a different set of markers/hands to set it apart from the SS version. It's good that it's not a LE though. :thumbsup: I would definitely get this over the SS version if I was shopping for a FF now. BP and to a lesser extent...JLC are the only ...

Nice. Fixes the one issue I've had with the steel BP - the blingy case.
Same. And the other one for me, which was the weight. Not limited either, which makes me wonder if they'll be around the $9/10k mark in a year or so... Wishful thinking?

Re: IWC Spitfire Timezoner

I loved that they took out the chronograph, but it's the same damned movement as before (bezel inexplicably adjusts both hour and 24-hour indicators simultaneously), making this a glorified 3-hander with an AM/PM indicator. Far from the proper travel watch that it is pretending to be. https://media....

Sold a watch for a buddy once, but never again. Deal went flawlessly, but I was stressed about it hardcore the whole time. Can't even imagine it escalating this bad.

One more rec from me – it's not really a Tank style, and from a purist standpoint, the BOD might not approve of the Panerai Due, but I'll be damned if it isn't still a fantastic-looking watch. https://www.panerai.com/content/dam/rcq/pan/16/49/75/7/1649757.png.transform.global_square_image_559.png T...
