I’ve no brand loyalty or fanboyism… they’re multi billion pound corporations that make outdated jewellery for men, it ain’t that deep

They are all nice for different reasons.

Bigger wrist folk can go for the new 126610 or 124060 knowing not only do they get a stunning watch but also more bang for buck as the power reserve beats any of the subs that came before it. Both beasts Cool

The new bulova milships is pretty cool, a nice taste of vintage tornek rayville / blancpain for those of us still on the bread line.

Ont other end of the spectrum, Krayon looks incredible; https://www.krayon.ch/anywhere.php?lang=en seems like he’s trying to drink Voutilainen’s milkshake. shame about the name tho Laughing out loud

The only interesting modern Rolex sports watch is the root beer gmt. Its such a minefield even big auction houses struggle to get a right: https://perezcope.com/2021/09/23/franken-fake-oyster-sotto-daytona-rco-at-christies-hong-kong/ (great site btw, lots of tomfoolery going on even at the highest levels; us mere mortals do not stand a chance).

Knightsbridge. Used to be Seiko before the rebrand a couple of years ago.

Seen a Hulk for the first time in the wild today. Nice watch but was surprised to see a guy with a regular job wearing one considering the resale value. Don't mean to sound like a cunt. I just wouldn't be comfortable wearing a watch for 20k plus to work.

There’s a shit ton of replica Hulks about with ETA movements in them. Not saying this dude is rolling this way but the Hulk is faked so often more times than not it’s a fugazi in the wild.

Or put a green bezel on a sub and hope no one notices the difference between the standard and maxi dials and call it a kermit Sticking out tongue
