I tried on and considered the 39mm case, which suited my wrist perfectly, but didn’t pull the trigger.

I think once I get the speedy I want, then I’ll start looking into other models.

Nice that, although I’d probably go for a 90s tritium speedy (3590.50) as it’ll be a couple k cheaper, last I looked, and still has the 861 movement as that 145.022 you linked.

What's the deal with the MoonSwatches now? Can you just rock up to the shops and buy one?

Not a fan of them myself, but interesting to see how the hype has held up from its initial madness

Still pretty much impossible as the shops are getting tiny delivery numbers and it's totally random days so unless you happen to be there at the time you got pretty much no chance. I'd still love a jupiter but not worth the hassle.

the RM X Ferrari looks hideous, but 1.7mm thin is unbelievable for a mechanical watch. Price tag is similarly hideous at £1.5m Laughing out loud

I used to have a 005 and a 372, oddly the larger 1950s cased 372 fitted better.

The Bvlgari Octo Finnissimo is incredible though. Actually a big fan of the QR code weirdly

Interesting. The "ugly" hour hand for many is now gone too.

I'm sure someone will be along in a minute to call this one even uglier. Sticking out tongue

I personally like it.

39mm is great too.

i am 50:50 on it. something weird about the numerals vs the original


while 39mm is nice - why is it so thick?
