Love the bracelet, not sure I love faux patina in general. Very nice watch though.

As above, love the bracelet, don’t like the fake patina.

You can have a super ocean heritage for a fraction of the cost if you like the bracelet

It was reading this https://www.wired.co.uk/article/omega-seamaster-diver-300m-007-bond-watch about the case that swung it for me

Lose the fake patina bullshit and that's a winner

The dial is too crowded for me. The best modern vintage style stuff is coming from Longines and Montblanc IMO.

Faux patina is fine; if you have a large vintage collection you know that they can sometimes be a pain to wear… much easier to wear a piece that is automatic, water resistant, has a sapphire crystal etc but still has the vintage aesthetic you’re into.

Cool seamaster
agree about vintage watches in general^ would never own one again unless it was purely to be collected rather than worn (dirty dozen or something)

Not been on here for a while but that Grand Seiko is……. ugly.

Too much going on around the bezel compared with the quite empty dial. Just something about that balance doesn’t sit right.

What’s the price for something like that? Is that in the same bracket as some Tudors?

Never got the appeal of grand seiko. People always going on about it’s the watch purists watch and you appreciate the brand more as you appreciate horology more… just really bland for me for the price.



Wearing today - vintage omega sea master from I think the 50s. Precious about wearing this outside as it was the old mans, so now that I’m confined indoors may as well give it some wear.

I've had it for approx 2 months now. My only complaint is that it seems to mark up pretty easily.

Been in Copenhagen for the past fortnight and only brought the JLC Grande Calender with me.
