I heard there will be more iterations of the zenith chronomaster sport this year. Loving the rose gold but 17k is a stretch. May go for the white faced stainless steel.

Thought I’d do a state of my collection post, after buying my new Seiko 62MAS reissue/Frankenstein. Absolutely love this watch. The original 62MAS is imo the best looking dive watch ever (tied 1st with the original GO seaQ spezimatic)

Omega Speedmaster Pro ‘sapphire sandwhich’
Rolex OP 36 116000
Casio A700WEM
Casio Gshock GM-2100 (metal version, love it)
Timex Q Falcon Eye
Casio A168

I do like the 62mas, though I must resist buying watches I don't need and will hardly wear.

Probably will end up buying it given the cost, so what band is that on in your pic?

Straight-on pic, which always makes watches look huge.

Pic taken in a filthy mirror for a more accurate representation

Wrists are a whopping 7 inches

Rubber strap is;

Seiko is a bit of a frankenstein;
Case&Bezel are made by FiftyFour (1:1 with the original 62MAS).
Face is an original seiko from a SPB143.
Movement is a seiko NH35A.

Probably easier to simply buy, but the case + bezel are bigger (swede has this one);

Doesn't look bad at all there. I'd say almost perfect. Cool

The speedy is a big watch, but definitely does fit smaller. I like the fact its pretty hefty, but wouldn't want to go any bigger.
It fits way smaller in comparison to other 42mm watches, like the sky dweller for example - which would just look daft on me

Looks Cool

Size already looks good there, and I find watches tend to wear even smaller on fabric straps as well, which is what I’d probably end up putting it on.

Nice Speedy and Rolex jord. Not sure why you’re bothering with all the shite B tier ones though.

I would struggle to wear a watch if the lug to lug was bigger than my wrist (as in the pic). each to their own though - whatever makes you happy
