Re: The Plan

Congrats, the BB58 blue is a lovely watch, probably the best of its type at that price point. It's a great watch to consolidate to. And, if I was thinking 'less is more', this would certainly be a watch that would leave me comfortable in my decision.

Re: Is less more?

I have a plan. The plan? To reduce the numbers down as I approach my intended retirement in a few years. Something that may end up just being "The One" ? Just to confirm...there is only one 'ONE'. It has been foretold by both Morpheus and the Oracle. And, what's better, he's returning to ...

That Holton looks superb on the canvas strap, very military ops indeed. I'm a big fan of the brand owning a Canford, Bloxworth and Tyneham. I think EB could dine out on the success of the Holton for quite some time, it has been very well received in a lot of watch circles.

Re: Is less more?

Reading through this thread I think the one singular event that has caused people to ponder this question is COVID. The pandemic has changed our lifestyles beyond recognition, and not for a few weeks but for eighteen months and counting. Many of us had different watches for different social settings...

Have to admit it looks OK to me, just the tiniest rock. I’m not sure you could call that play…could you?

Re: Rolex a discussion

Nothing really new here. It has all been discussed in the thread. What drew my attention was a £35k Nautilus selling for £500k. There are a lot of people with very deep pockets these days. A bit of watch inflation is neither here nor there.

Re: A Watermelon Watch

That's a lot of fun and a great summer watch, as others have mentioned. I'm not a fan of all the dial text and it's placement, seems a bit random to me. Just the brand name at 12 and mechanical at 6 would have sufficed. The ST-19 chrono movement is always so visually satisfying. I find myself wantin...

Re: Bremont - The Wing

The Breh-mon HQ looks rather swanky doesn't it!! I bet that was a lot of fun. I think I would have been rather distracted by that gorgeous E-Type...boys toys and all that. :lol: :lol:

Re: Good things come to those that wait. But what is it?

Well after one week of ownership this one is in danger of becoming my favourite dive watch. :) It has certainly made it to the “if I kept a dozen watches” list. Neil What a superb watch and photo, Neil. I love the proportions on it, so balanced. The vintage vibes and sandwich dial is lovely. The la...

They're quite nice, and reasonably priced. Very different and engaging dials.

Re: The race for Emma's wrist space

Well, Guy, From what I've seen of Emma's tennis I can't see her being a fly-by-night. She has unbelievable talent and should win many, many grand slams. Any brands looking to her, watch or otherwise, are going to be engaging a global marketing powerhouse with potentially very long longevity. Maybe C...

Re: C60 Trident Pro MK2 43MM - The Polar Bear?

lovely watch you've got there. Really like the little lume pips at the end of each index. Nice the way the crown logo aligns perfectly, too. looks to be in great condition.

Re: Is less more?

I’ve delayed responding to this because I’ve been having an internal battle with myself over the last few months. My collection is at about 17, and sometimes I feel bad if I haven’t worn one for a while. But every time I think about selling one, I just plain don’t want to. I like having it in my co...
