«Emoji (from Japanese 絵 - picture and 文字 - sign, symbol; pronunciation: [emoʥi]) - the language of ideograms and emoticons used in electronic messages and web pages, as well as the pictograms themselves. This graphic language, where combinations of pictures are used instead of words, appeared in Japan and spread throughout the world. Initially, emoji looked like a pictogram language, where symbols were used in the same way as in ASCII emoticons, but had a wider range of use, and the icons themselves were standardized in the keyboard, which became available on mobile devices. Some emoji characters have a specific meaning in Japanese culture: for example, a bowing businessman, an ioriten, a white flower for “brilliantly completed homework,” or a group of characters for popular foods: ramen, dango, onigiri, and sushi.
Unlike emojis, emoticons arose as a means of depicting emotions with existing typographic means at the initiative of users. However, some emojis denoting faces are...
Any interest is strictly rectangular bezel designs?
Howdy, all. First time poster, here... I recall my Dad had a dress watch that was almost straight-edged rectangular when viewing the face, but had a wrist-fitting curve when viewed from the side. It was gold-toned (plated or alloy, I don't know). I can't recall if the numbers were pips, or arabic, or roman, if it had a bracelet or strap, and I don't recall the brand. For me, it's more about that classic shape. The very few rectangular watches I've seen in Drop have all had curved sides - when viewed face-on, and very modern styling. Is anyone else interested in a seeing a classically styled automatic in Drop similar to what my Dad had?
What is going on with the Victornox watches that 'dropped' today? First there were 7 to choose from - and NONE were available. Later there were 10 that were already 'sold through'. Were there ever any watches? Was there just one of each? There were at least two watches of the 10 that I would have probably bought. Had there been any. What is the story here?
How’s the new Drop “Pilot” program working out for you so far ?
Hey all, just curious if anyone has purchased any of the Bulova watches yet ? I’m curious as to how this new idea is working out thus far and what qualifies it as successful program ?
Also try to take a guess what other “partners” we should expect to see VS actually want to see. I am thinking 🤔 maybe Citizen up next soon ? Let me know !
Btw random pic just for color lol
@RayF @TwentySixAnd @jaxtrauma @Watchyoutalkingabout @Truelove1 @ED61 @kpjimmy @rsallen (I’m sure I’ve missed a few).
How do you all feel about them? Increasingly I see a number of them making attractive offerings at reasonable prices, which is always a winning combination. That coupled with supporting an American venture makes me a believer in some of these.
I actually joined the Kickstarter for this Martenero today to get the discount -
Not certain which colorway I'll go with but a smartly designed watch with some nice little touches and a solid movement for around $400 is pretty hard to beat. The movement could be more interesting, but at this price point you cannot be super picky about things like that.
So how do you all feel about some of these brands? I personally am a fan, I'd love to add the new Oak & Oscar chrono to my collection, and I've long wanted an Autodromo Stradale of my own.
