it would be nice to see people move on rather than absolutely lose their minds because one over the line comment got gently called out.
i have no hard feelings towards you. just so you know.

i just wanted to clear things up so there would be no further misunderstandings.

i'm done with this.

My first Eco Drive got lost couple years bought another titanium. Found it when moving furniture when moved. So charged it up still using my first one over 20 years & still keeping good time. Surfed, swam, fishing, kayak with it.

Non Ocean Eco Drives wear these more in retirement.

i have this one in black. where can i buy a new colored strap/shell for this? would be cool to have it all white. or red.
Don’t know about the US, man. I bought it in a UK shop.

I’m sure you can get it on eBay. Or just go to a US watch forum (watchuseek maybe?) and browse a little. You should find plenty of sources there. Just make sure you buy a bezel/band that fits your model. Not all G Shock Squares are the same, even though they sometimes look like exactly the same dimensions.

I’m not a fan of Roman numerals, but Sinn watches are nice, very underrated ....

Cartier has some stunning Roman numerals - I cannot wear a Cartier - not really my persona, but they look great!

Ulysses Nardin also has some great nautical pieces with Roman

This thread got me looking at watch on line. Found one I liked went to Macy's last month.

Found it the lady said I could get 25% off this month plus if use Macy card another 15%.
When I saw difference put it on Macy card she said she would call me day sale started.

When told Janice she said why did you order another watch. Today we got our second covid shot we went to Kahala Mall after I picked up the watch. She said wow that's a nice watch.

In terms of interesting and rare watches, FP Journe definitely deserves a mention. I’d put it above A Lange & Sohne just because it’s got a lower production volume and has a more cult following. Someone also mentioned ALS > Patek, I think that’s a futile debate. Which name retains its value better = Patek. Which house has better craftsmanship = ALS.

Question for the group — when do you think the Richard Mille hype train going to end?

Agreed we FPJ his watches nearly double in price after retail purchase

RM hype-train continues, and shows no signs of slowing down. They started at 50 K, and now, many go 3-6 times that amount

Maybe the bubble will burst
But like FP, he is a single man operator and he won’t live forever
