    You must be related to my wife, who never updates the day/date. That would drive me insane

    I’m very OCD, I’m surprised I didn’t catch it earlier. I have all but 1 automatic on winders so I typically just throw one on assuming it’s accurately set

    Was waiting for a comment on them LOL

    They’re 15+ years old and I wear them around the house. They sometimes play the role of doggie chew toy as well.

    Did some searching & it appears that G-Shock has appreciated by about 250-300%, since getting discontinued.

    Tourneau in NYC is an absolute joke. I would highly advise you not to shop there.

    This is the second bad experience I've had there.

    Order watch from Tourneau last night specifically because it is listed as being available for in-store pickup immediately. I waited for them to email me at any point today to confirm that my order is ready for pickup like they were supposed to. I was planning on going at any time before 4 today, so I started calling them around 1 because I figured they surely have the watch in stock and I should be able to come by and pick it up. They literally do not answer the phone the entire day. The entire fucking day they literally do not pick up calls on their main customer service line. Unreal.

    This is probably gonna be my next purchase. I'm a fan of Orient watches and this would an upgrade to the original Ray I've had for like 6 years. I was looking at the Kamasu before I stumbled upon this one.

    It's all in good fun, I'm not bothered. I really do like Omegas and I've tried on the 300M and really liked it. Surprisingly liked how it wore on my wrist better than the Seamaster 300.

    Paying retail for the OP41 has ruined my purchasing; it's now impossible for me mentally to separate purchase price and market value.

    Love it, I’m a big fan of the Calibre 321 model they just released but at $14k it’s pretty steep.

    Sapphire Sandwich? Can’t go wrong with a Moonwatch. Timeless. My favorite piece.

    I love Hamilton's vintage inspired stuff so much.

    Jorts what do you think about the chrono on something like an Artem sailcloth with contrast white stitching?

    I love Hamilton as well. The Chrono would look good with just about any strap or bracelet.

    Also, I’m probably going to get that bronze Khaki field watch… need patina in my life
