Kinda want to try some gold this year too, but not sure what yet.
You need a 3713 :).

Re: 2019 Watch Goals

For me, I am hoping stainless Rolex sport watches become more reasonable, at least on the pre-owned market. I'd like to add a black dial Sky Dweller and Pepsi.

Happy new year, DWC. To a great year ahead!

Re: new blancpain fifty fathoms automatique

Nice display back too. I always thought the FF needs a display back with its nice in-house movement. I think this one will get to -50% relatively quickly, assuming Swatch continues doing what it has been doing with Blancpain.

Re: New router

I have Orbi at the guest house and Amplifi HD at the main house. Love both systems, but the Amplifi tends to have more stable firmware. Orbi has higher throughput, however. In the end, I prefer the look of the Amplifi antenna extenders more, so I went with those as primary. But you genuinely can’t g...

Re: IWC Ceramic BP

I have one, the black ceramic top gun model. It wears notably smaller and lighter than my le petit prince, and the strap is super comfortable. On the wrist, it feels like a lighter 47mm Panerai (e.g. 422).

Re: Omega Speedmaster Racing Chrono, thoughts?

I prefer these over the Tudor as well. These are super cool. But I agree with Rahul, speedmaster is probably not a substitute for a Daytona. I wear my Daytonas more than speedmasters, but I love both and they each have a place in the collection.
