Re: Watch Porn Wednesday

The 25XX.80 bracelet is the most comfortable bracelet I've ever worn. And it looks the best with the watch. I just figure that, as I have basically three of the same watch, I may as well put a different strap on each. Should the mood for something different strike.

Re: Watch Porn Wednesday

Did you get to keep 3 bracelets? But yeah I can see that, definitely. I wonder how you shift between them and how accurate they've been thus far.

Honestly having thought about it, I'm between 2531/2220.80 and the 5513 in terms of "the" watch for me.
But this is more modern but definitely more usable but it's also blue. And even if it may suit me, it doesn't really work with every outfit visually. But then that's a Rolex and then there's the stigma of if you're a prick or a pleasant guy to be around that some people see, same as having a Rolls I guess.
The PO is out of the running to me as of yet because you either have to justify the mass by fitting with the rest of you or it looks ridiculous imo. Got bummed out over that.

Re: Watch Porn Wednesday

The PO was a disappointment for me. It's in a fashion no man's land. It's why I never bought the Skyfall PO even though I loved that gray bezel. The PO is a *great* watch and looks awesome. But I can't wear it with a suit (which means I can't wear it when I'm working) and, for the fits where it is appropriate, 9 times out of 10 I'd rather wear the Bond blue. And because the Planet Ocean is significantly bulkier I'm more self conscious of bumping it into things. Plus, it wears kinda weird for me as I have small wrists and big hands.

And, yeah, I have all the bracelets. Spares too. Every time I have them serviced I send them without the bracelet and ask for a replacement. I have five in total. As for timekeeping, all four remain within +/- 3 seconds a day. Zero issues on that front. But I service them regularly.

Milenese mesh straps have been around for a long time, proper ones should be hand made in Milan, but I doubt even the new Omega one is, I've always preferred them over the shark mesh tbh, but both look good IMHO.

Heh! I've got one of those 5's (not the gold, just silver) and on a not-dissimilar bracelet either. It's a handsome little thing.

Having some fun with this.  After seeing the Omega slideshow of NATO straps for the NTTD watch I snagged a grey NATO and I'm really loving this combo.  This watch is very versatile and works well with NATOs IMO.   Contemplating a brown leather one now.....

That looks great! I had mine on a Zulu for a little bit but in the end I find both them and Natos just too uncomfortable. And Natos make watches huge!

Share your frustration with it but the extent of my experience was in the Boutique I saw one at.
Same camp, smaller hands.

Same here, but you get used to it very rapidly

Re: Watch Porn Wednesday

Can anyone here familiar with both the Skyfall PO 8500 and the Spectre Seamaster 300, comment on the thickness and how the PO wears.

I have the Spectre 300 and I find that a thick watch but I’m use to it now. So just wondering if the PO wears the same. I’ve always thought about getting one...

Without wishing to open any debate about fake watches, this is a very interesting and informative article showing just how good the ‘replicas’ are becoming. These watches could easily be passed off and sold as genuine watches.
Buyer beware!!

Very cool! I just bought my first Hamilton a couple of days ago, the Khaki Field Auto Chrono, and I’m now seriously considering the PSR as well—such a awesome retro look!

You would be happy with a fake?  Or rather not be seen with something mistaken to be a fake

Or just get affordable watches that tell the time, look good, and aren't likely to be copied.

Heh. I only wear two types of watches: my Bond Omegas or my Apple Watch during workouts/chores/the pool/grocery store runs, etc. I'm not particularly worried about fake Apple Watches. So I'll continue ordering those online.

Not at all. The idea of owning a fake makes my stomach flip. It's gross. I'm only going through ADs or Omega directly is what I meant.

Re: Watch Porn Wednesday

Yeah it certainly shows that buying a pre-owned watch like that is fraught with risk now.

Excellent fakes will probably drive folks toward the full retail of the boutiques. It's a conspiracy!  ajb007/lol

'Twas delivered this morning. My first Hamilton and first chrono! Always wanted an Omega DSOTM style watch (but not ready to drop DSOTM level money let) and this works great.

Also, a secondary thing, I really like the Hamilton wooden box...that will be heading to the back of the cupboard to join the all the other watch boxes.
