any datejust owners here?

I'm a dissenting opinion on this. The main reason I get rid of watches is boredom, and for most watches (especially time-only) it strikes within a couple months. However, with the DJ, it's struck before even owning one. I've tried them on multiple times at ADs and GTGs, and it evokes zero interest f...

Re: Thoughts on the Bremont Supermarine S301/BK

I like the 301, but there's literally zero comparison with something like a BB58 (unless the Bremont is half the price - which it's not).

Re: Hodinkee's "One-watch" article

I guess I'd go with my 16700 GMT Master, I hate the "II" on the dial more than a cyclops. No mods, nothing. Just GMT and a quickset date. Also if this actually came to pass and my one watch was a rolex, id probably have lost all my passion for watches as well and wouldn't really care to mod it anyw...

Re: WRUW 7/10/18

Switch up after coming up for air from a busy day at work! This one has been on my radar for a long time, and after realizing that one of my more expensive watches was not actually getting any wear out of the house I decided to use it for trade bait to move to this one! This is my fourth or fifth V...

Hondinkee's "One-watch" article

Honestly, as cliche as it is, I think 16710 is the best one-watch (also not a dive watch, sorry). I think a one-watch needs to be 1) durable, 2) versatile, 3) interesting. And for me, one more - needs to have some sort of horological significance (interesting complications, in-house movements, stori...

Re: A few of my subs

I have 6.5-6.75" wrists, and definitely wear lots of watches bigger than I "should", but I like what I like!
