AP's Royal Oak offerings this year should be called "hold my beer."
I like most of the "extra/ultra thin" versions they did (Jumbo, Perpetual), but the Offshores were bad.

Re: SIHH 2018

AP has had ceramic bezels for quite awhile now. Probably before most other brands went ceramic.

Redesigned Rieussec is hot. I liked the original, but this one is even better.

The big date big pilots are horrible "updates" as well.

Flipping through IG, here are a few other standouts. Montblanc may have had some winners, but I'm not sure what's going on with this one: https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180115/a9e515eba161d07002465afdb121bea4.jpg There is no amount of brand horological street cred that makes this one okay: https...

Worst Watch of SIHH 2018?

I've been out all day, so I haven't gone through the majority of SIHH releases yet, but what do you guys think is the worst so far?

Of the ones I've seen, this one struck me as particularly offensive.

Re: SIHH 2018

I like the LE Polaris alarm way more than the old TTP68, but the disappointing thing is that it's just more rehashing of the same things. I want something new.

It's a big deal for me. Makes micro and vintage ownership hard to justify.

Re: Anyone wearing an Apple Watch Series 3 (or similar Android) regularly?

Had one. Didn't like to wear it. Chris Tucker has mine now. I liked it in theory, but I couldn't wear it along with a watch.

I wear a Misfit Ray with notifications enabled and that's a good compromise for me.

Re: Wtf Moser Frankenwatch

Moser is being a little naive in their shitting on the fluff in the watch industry. Whether they like it or not, the entire luxury watch industry (including their own brand) is built on said fluff. Are we supposed to believe that watches are irreplaceable tools these days? That the price tag is just...

Re: Wtf Moser Frankenwatch

Looks like they got cold feet and it is being withdrawn from the auction and locked away. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk The article says the watch was misinterpreted. I don't see how that's possible given their advertising campaign. The industry backlash must've been more than they could sto...

Re: Wtf Moser Frankenwatch

A joke that would have been fine if it was photoshop (I assume it is). If they actually made this, that's a damn waste of money (I mean if you're gonna put a GMT bezel on it, at least make it a real GMT).

As is, it looks like a stupid, C-grade fake.

Both of my bronze watches because I don't use bezels much seized up beyond any force I could apply. So my advice is to play with the bezel often
That's not cool.
