    I get that the watch as a whole has SS and gold, but the part that has Au750 stamped on it has no gold as far as I know. Maybe I'm missing something but I've never seen any part of a watch with a gold stamping on it that wasn't gold.

    H Moser possibly could have had the hottest watch of 2020, if they had just set this watch up with a running seconds hand that was silver/off-white/grey to offset the Vanta Black dial. If you haven’t heard of vanta black just YouTube what the color does on cars. Looks so sick. But yeah having a running seconds to capture your eye while you’re lost in the VB would have been amazing in my opinion.








    I’m actually gonna give Tag Heuer a golf clap for their poverty blnr. I was inclined to post it and rip it to shreds, but like… they’re not trying to be anything they’re not. They didn’t go get an in house movement. It’s still an entry level ETA. They didn’t put some gimmick feature on it and price it at $5,000. They’re just like “Hey everyone… here’s our poverty BLNR with Tag-ish designs, 300m water resistance, and a steel bracelet for 3 grand”. I kinda can’t fault them for that. Then when you consider Breitling’s Avenger GMT looks like it was co-created by TAPOUT clothing, Tudor’s GMT has ugly proportions, and no one buys Omega’s GMT aqua terra because it messes up the perfect aesthetics of the OG Aqua terra… Tag’s poverty blnr selling for $2500 grey market is pretty solid as a beater in my opinion.

    I think that uses a Sellita movement. I bought and sold a Grand Carrera, which I think is far nice than these things, without ever wearing it years back. These BLNR and BLRO lookalikes are just cheesy to me though.

    I think all non-monaco Tags are a bit of a joke. Let me put it this way. I'd rather wear the "TAGLNR" as opposed to a Breitling Avenger GMT. I feel like people who wear Tags more or less know what they are (cheapy swiss watches with decent finishing). Whereas I get the impression Breitling wearers feel like they're legit wearing something swaggy.

    Depends on what you're looking for. Some brands are slowly softening but I'd still wait until summer/fall if i was looking for a really good a deal.

    "They're also truly global brands, not firms who make most of their money in just one or two markets – this means they can't bank on things improving in one or two regions alone without creating risky or painful situations in others. And, in case you forgot, both Patek Philippe and Rolex/Tudor had to close their manufacturing facilities a few weeks ago as Switzerland itself grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic. They remain closed today, as do many global distribution centers and local-market offices, with no official timelines released yet for reopening.

    The last thing I'll say – although it might get me some boos in the comments – is that I don't know if this is such a bad thing. Demand for all but the least popular Rolex, Tudor, and Patek Philippe watches still outstrips supply by a long shot, with some models still featuring waitlists that are "no longer taking names," years after the watches' initial releases. These extra few months spent focused on producing watches already in demand might help the brands and their retailers catch up a bit. It will also alleviate the pressure placed on retailers to buy up new collections, since many traditional retailers are sure to be struggling after closing their doors for weeks or months in 2020."

    I've been seeing the past in one eye and the present in the other. So, I thought I could only see patches of reality, never the whole picture. I felt like I was watching a dream I could never wake up from. Before I knew it, the dream was over.

    They do great dials, but to me they're mostly interesting to look at but not want to own. That four seasons is noice though. AD wanted to sell me a snowflake dial and that was legitimately beautiful.

    Breaking News Rolex, Tudor, Patek Philippe, Chanel, And Chopard Leave Baselworld

    "The move follows two major bits of news to drop over the last few weeks. First was the announcements by Rolex, Tudor, and Patek Philippe that they would be postponing their 2020 launches until later this year or even early 2021. Then there was a letter penned by Rolex executive Hubert du Plessix to the Baselworld management that asked for refunds to be issued to the brands that were to have participated in Baselworld 2020, which had been canceled due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

    “Otherwise, we fear that this will be the end, pure and simple, of Baselworld, especially since the dates chosen in January 2021 are not suitable for the jewelry, gemstones and pearls sector, and that coordination with Watches & Wonders (SIHH) no longer exists,” Plessix's letter continued."

    ghey. work proxy filters are the lamest.
    it's weird. They dont like file sharing stuff or email servers like Gmail. But....magically i can get to imgur.

    All this makes it sound like a great time to visit an AD when i return to VA in august. Have nice sob story of how the previous AD SA just left and now im at the bottom again.

    All this makes it sound like a great time to visit an AD when i return to VA in august. Have nice sob story of how the previous AD SA just left and now im at the bottom again.

    I really hope they make it into a modern event. I think hodinkee said baselworld has existed since 1930 something. Old ass boring trade show meant for placing large dealer orders, fukall for actual enthusiasts.

    Would be nice to have an event with some younger blood running things. Obviously you have to retain a level of snobbery and elitism with Patek there, routinely releasing $30,000 watches n **** but there's no reason why it can't be more interractive.

    I feel like there's a fuk ton they could do but aren't doing.

    I remember way back when I went to the Arnold Classic 2 years in a row 2010/2011. AnimalPak you could do a bench your bodyweight contest. All supplement companies had Photo ops with their sponsored team members. Free samples. olympic lifting clinics. all kinds of chit.


    Omega has cindy crawfords daughter as a brand ambassador. IWC has bradley cooper and Lewis Hamilton as ambassadors. Tudor has David Beckham. You all cant gather some of these phaggots for photo ops?

    Who was "intro to watch making clinic" to recruit interest into the next generation of oldcels who make all this chit?

    Car Manufacturers have these big Apple/SteveJobs-esque epic drops. No reason rolex/patek can't do something of that magnitude.

    Then of course anything watchbox studios could add to the mix. I dunno just seems like a metric fukton of untapped potential because old swisscels want to be stuffy and boring af. I'd fly over there if it was even remotely worth doing, but it's not.

    So I couldn't wrap my head around the new Breitling Chronomat. 42mm. I couldn't decide whether i liked or hated the bracelet. It looks very Cartier Santos inspired.








    Then I saw this color configuration. NOT gonna lie, I at least want to see it on wrist. Even if the pricing is ambitious with assumed 30% off the $8,000msrp... $5600... I'd rather have the cartier santos on wrist.

    It looks like one of those old ones that stretches. When I was like 10, I found an Oscar de la Renta (it was worthless) watch on the sidewalk that had a bracelet like that, and even then I didn't like it. Bracelet aside, I think the Chronomat looks very nice.

    Plot twist: Rolex releases a Daytona in the exact same color scheme as the 2nd chronomat photo. Fans nickname it "Cookies n Cream". Initial grey market prices are $28,000.

    That's entirely possible, but it wouldn't be a SS model. They've been consistent with black or white only. With the golds, they've got a bunch of variations.

    And i need to really stop looking at Royal oaks.
    If you got the money, and feelin froggy, then leap.

    It's the closest thing to the most perfect watch i've ever seen. Dressy, sporty, clean and subtle while also standing out. I think that's why I loved omega's Aqua Terra. It ticks a lot of those boxes at 1/10th the price. $20,000 for a watch... can't ever see allowing myself to make that purchase even if I knew I could sell it and get 80% of my money back. $12,000 (after tax) is about where I start to draw the line given my current earnings.

    Wish they would stop fuking with it though. All the ugly fuking offshore versions are abominable. That's like if Rolex released a chronograph version of the datejust. or if BMW started putting 20inch wheels back in the 3series days.











    I think the smooth bezel datejust is the best of both worlds. More luxurious than the omega, and if you get the jubilee bracelet, it would look close to being as cool on wrist as RO. Just wish the smooth bezel was more chiseled and less "bulbous"
