Re: Do you still have the watch that got you started

A TAG/Heuer 4000 was my first "nice" watch, from about 22 years ago. I still have it and wear it in rotation. It's pretty cool. Okay, it's super uncool... but it was a gift from my then-new (and still) wife.

Re: Bond Seamaster LE

I'd be okay with it if they'd delete the stupid faux rifling pattern on the dial. It's atrocious. The gold handset and indices are cool, and the crest at 12 is low-key. The dial kills it.

38hour pr. Can’t believe that’s still an option these day’s.

My deep sea vintage chrono is 65hrs. My NSA is 44hrs, and these are 7-9 year old designs now.

Used around 4K I’d love to own one.
Right..?! A JLC, for that kind of money, should probably offer something more than a 2824.

Re: Hodinkee/Blancpain 07/17/19

With the apparent popularity of the newer 40mm Blancpain models I can see something like a TTFF in 40mm. Whatever it is it’ll be expensive and sell out immediately. It could be a knock off of the new BP "one watch". That would be an instant sell out. Yea, I could see a faux-patina ‘dink version bei...

Re: Speedmaster Reduced

Thoughts?

Re: Weiss 42mm Limited American Issue Field Watch

Dude is a good guy and he's definitely doing good things here in LA. At 42mm this watch wears ginormous, sadly. I'd like to put an eyeball on his 38mm watch, though.

This. My only complaint, really. The OG SM500 had its quirks but I've always like the case design and the technology.
