Love that the U1P was on the list. Incredible piece.

I really want to try the Seiko- but I wish it was under 3k.

Of course Chris, written by one of our own Jason H...I tried on the B & R and it wore like a 44MM. Love the Panerai but hate the $8700 price tag..That Rado is kind of cool..Owned the Bremont for a month and returned it twice--bezel misaligned-drove me nuts :shrug:
I dig that Bremont. When I watch recon’d the model your sale popped up. I never knew you had one.

That's a great list from Jason. The U1P is amazing, and hasn't gotten enough love IMO. I'm also a huge fan of the Black Lung. Wish I could've made the 62MAS reissue onto my wrist. And the TT Mil-Spec is so good.

There goes that fucking Jason again, with his exquisite taste, actual real-world dive experience, and solid writing chops.
This. Great list.

They keep missing the obvious. A 44mm 305 would be just perfect.
Yes. Although...I tried on the new, slimmer 1305 too. It was huge (even on me!) but was surprisingly comfortable. I was about 90% of the way there. A 44-45 version would have made the sale.

Being honest, I’m still thinking about that 1305.

Also tried on the JLC Deep Sea chrono. What a beautiful watch! I had visions of it on nato. My price was pretty close to the 1305, but I worry a bit about JLC being a bit delicate.
Deep sea chrono is plenty tuff. I've put mine through all kinds of shit

Great stuff.
Hate the Citizen but like all others though I don’t wear square watches so the B&R would be out for me.
I agree with you on the Citizen. Case is pointlessly big with a small recessed dial that is not easy to read on an angle.

Wait, are you okay with being referred to as a FL Cop? I thought you were a NYC cop??!
