What if I don’t want to be Swiss?
Do you like this one? I am enamored with the look.
It's not a terrible watch, but it's not for me. It's a little pricey--lotta nice watches in that range.
By the way, this is the Watch Department and we don't allow no damn enamoring around here!
Lets keep that stuff in the Audio Community where it belongs!
Maybe I should have saved it for a watch with enamel. What do you like at this price range?
First things first; what classification do you like: dress, field, tool, sport diver? Prefer leather straps, metal bracelet?
Thanks for asking!
Generally, I prefer leather bracelets... the typical metal links don’t appeal to me for some reason (though I do like the visually simpler metal link band for the Apple Watch). The sport diver watches are usually too big and “loud” for my taste and relatively slim wrists (40mm or so seems good, I wear the smaller of the two Apple Watches). Honestly, I need an alarm for day to day use because I lose track of time without being prompted (very helpful for me to accept that), so I will usually stick with my Apple Watch (I had the first gen steel watch, and I have an aluminum one now with an analog face)... so if I was getting another watch, it would be for dressy, collector’s reasons rather than practical.
I’m mechanically fascinated, I even did a school report on the influence of portable nautical clocks and its influence on navigating and mapping the world, so I like some view of the guts! Similarly, I like “elegant” complications. I also appreciate the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions to be clear, and minute marks, but otherwise I don’t like a face to be cluttered with numbers or bold things.
I like the silver version of this watch, with the leather band. I would like to see a video about how much movement is displayed by the skeletonization window, but it might be just enough of a view without being too cluttered.
Maybe something from the Seiko Persage line?
