all black everything

Post by dinexus » Tue Nov 26, 2019 11:43 am

As I gird my loins for another holiday season, I'm kinda feeling like I need something to match my mood. All black everything.

Almost recently grabbed a Blancpain Bathy Ceramic, but ultimately went with something else that I'd be more comfortable smacking around. Still want a ceramic / PVD / DLC case to scratch that itch though, maybe in the 2 - 3k range. Pretty much any Breitling 'blacksteel' is an easy pick, but wondering what else is out there.

Pick up a two-liner and have it DLC’d within budget?

Man, I have always wanted to do this with my two-liner. Just don't have the balls atm...

+1 to the Breitling – I've heard their DLC is supposed to be leagues above what most brands are doing. Have definitely always liked the Avengers though, especially the new ones.

Been watching Season 3 of Grand Tour right now, and Clarkson is giving a Top Gun a lot of airtime. This was one of my favorite watches of SIHH this year too:

This.

They can be had relatively inexpensive when they come up on the market used.

There's a lot in this budget. The current IWC top gun sans the airplane hand is a gem in person and would be my choice but it's ceramic and $$$$... Good in that the black won't show any marks but you know the rest with ceramic.

Could buy a SRPB55 Samurai and find another bezel insert if the OEM doesn't tickle your fancy, or swap with an entire second watch) like I did, then flip the spoils in a separate watch for cheap, at least until this dark mood passes. :lol:

My favorite Blacksteel watch is the Colt Chronograph Blacksteel:

The Navitimer Blacksteel is pretty cool as well, if you can look past the date font:

A friend of mine recently picked up the Tag Heuer Monza reissue and I've been pretty impressed with it:

There's always the DSOTM:

Wish I knew the lug to lug on that MG. I would probably jump on it if it was reasonable. Agreed about the bottom text, however.

The reissue echoes the design of the original. In fact I think it's one of the only vintage reissues I've seen that actually looks better than the original.
