I like the keenness, very much like that he doesn't take himself too seriously to wear a $29 Chevron gas-station watch.
His watches are not my taste. But to take a positive from it (as defeated soccer players say) he's not using his wealth to drive up the prices of watches I do like.
Is this hand engraving or machine ?
I don't think he would be interested in watches that cost less than 50K
These watches must cost A LOT !!!
For those of you in based in, or visiting, sunny (sic) Queensland, Omega's new boutique in Brisbane has opened on the corner of Edward and Elizabeth Streets, opposite the TAG Heuer boutique.
I haven't been in yet, but the burly security guard doesn't look that welcoming:
Can't be any less welcoming the security guard in TAG's Oxford Street boutique, he looked at me like I was a piece of **** when I went there just after it opened. I often wonder if he's still working there...
I found all the staff at Regent St. (i’m assuming you mean London) very welcoming, including the security chap who opened the door with a smile. Maybe someone’s had a word and they’ve changed their game
Although I do not dress like a buyer of expensive watches, more like a farmer, I have no trouble with door guards. Maybe East Anglian farmers buy decent watches to go with their new Mercs and Range-Rovers? I walk up entirely expecting to be let in, and say "thankyou" when I am
Yeah, you'd think that would work wouldn't you...? Not with this dumbass.
I'm quite taken by vintage zenith el primeros at the moment.....
I'm sure most of you have already seen the new Breitlings announced today, but hellooooo panda.
42mm is still too large for me, but the lugs look better than the Hamilton Intra-matic.
You bought it or just tried it on?
I think breitling have upped their game recently. Another brand that TH should be worrying about
Neither. Just saw the announcements on the web today.
And I totally agree about Breitling upping their design game. Watches still look a little large for me, but the proportions look well executed. Design influence has gone through a paradigm shift in the right direction, IMO.
Not really for me. For a Breitling, there is a remarkabkle lack of text on that dial, so that's a positive.
TH need to up their game on their leather straps too. The stock black lether strap feels very cheap by comparison. A bit like my prevous watch box complaint. Ok, overall the price point of the overall range is different between say TH, Breitling and Omega. But a £4/5k watch at actual street prices shows very different levels of quality in some of the finishing between some other brands and TH are pushing prices beyond what their quality delivers I fear. More Longines and B&M Territory in terms of how the watch ‘feels’ a quality made piece than Breitling or Omega, based on the ones I’ve bought anyway. Not trying to ‘hate’ on the brand. That’s be nuts as I own 5 TH wtahces. They’ve had a substantial chunk of my recent watch spend. But it is partly the reason I’ve spent more elsewhere recently as the ‘value’ feels more bang for buck. Tudor is another one. But competition is good, anything that encourages TH to do better can’t be a bad thing for us fans.
Ah yes, the Breitling Jack Heuer....
There does seem to be a heavy Carrera influence in that design!
I like it- nice job by Breitling. You can see the watches here: https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/breitling-premier-collection-2018-introducing
Former TAG Heuer CEO Stephane Linder is COO at Breitling, so there will be some TAG Heuer influence there. My only gripe? The Chrono is too expensive.//US$8,400 on leather...and that's for both the in-house model and the 7750/ Calibre 16 model.
Ouch! Hasn't the B01 movement had plenty of issues too?
