Poliot 3 hander and GMT

Post by gwells » Mon Feb 19, 2024 11:16 am

this is kinda interesting. I think the multi color GMT is :puke:. but the white 3 hander is really nice.

I'm going to echo your sentiment. The white dial looks nice however the world diver has too much going on. I'll add my common whine that either the price is too high or I'm getting old, but I guess that could also be the x2 dealer price.

I am usually a sucker for white dials but something is off for me on this one. Maybe the out silver portion of the bezel. :scratch:

Dunno about these. The white would be improved with less clutter on bezel (all black, white printing?) but the name suggests a really deep dive into horological history. Too nerdy for even me.

Google shows the top 3 results in this order, the second one being enough to ensure I’ll never be a buyer. It may as well say “Foliot; a watch brand for those who identify as socially awkward around other humans and prefer the company of other Furries. We also have special models for enthusiasts of Pokémon, Goth culture, and those who identify as male feminists”

The brand website is result #4

I think they are all cool Greg ! :salute: :thumbsup:

The white definitely is sharp though, and the way the markers look
really is neat too. Plus it isn’t too wild of a change when you think
about it. Yet it gives the watches a very unique feel. Which would
help them stand out in the crowd for sure. ;) And wow, is it me?
Or does the finish almost look Titanium? Some really nice finishing
there honestly. :o

Can’t thank you enough for the report sir !!!
