The most difficult aspect for me is the perhaps-avoidable touch of autobiography, which I’ll try to resist at all costs. This is not meant to be a collection embodying how I, the watch writer and father of two, could start afresh. No, I have tried to put together a three-part entry into the appreciation of watches, period. They are all great choices, but there are many more watches out there, so consider this a taster menu, if you will. Warning: the group will be colored by my love for classic lines and a vintage aesthetic, which is open to interpretation as “classic”. Well, except for the sneaky fourth watch. Who says we can’t some fun with the leftover cash?

I must be going soft in my old age. For someone that takes a generally biting and cynical view of “real” horology when the slightest detail is somehow “off” in my mind, I have noticed how disgustingly warm and fuzzy I am feeling toward these newer, have-a-go hero brands trying (often desperately) to do something (anything) differently from that which has gone before.
That doesn’t mean everything is straightforward. Take a closer look at the dial that shows a lot of depth replica iced out ap watch because Seiko added a lot of three-dimensional elements. The hour markers for instance are small solid blocks with a sculptural appearance. And also the etched Seiko-logo hovering over the dial is an intriguing design detail.
More fun for less
Put up your hand if you are going deeper than 100m underwater this summer. Yeah, I thought so. Other than superfluous water resistance, the Serica holds nothing against the NOMOS. This watch is fully in-house-made in Glashutte, including an in-house-produced caliber. No generic parts in sight here. Honestly, it could command double its current price. But it is actually more affordable than the Serica. Seriously… how?

I am not into the Rolex Explorer for its half-fabricated story about summiting Mount Everest. As much as I love watch a good story, this is really not one of them in my eyes. My love affair with the Rolex Explorer is purely based on the physical product, perhaps augmented by what it represents. Let me elaborate.
Speaking personally, I hublot unico king gold replica am a fan of texture. Textures mean more to me than colors when it comes to choosing clothes, shoes, belts, and even watch straps. Although my wardrobe is notoriously bright, the items that may wow upon first impression because of their color were actually chosen primarily for the way they feel. To me, color can be a cheap way of getting someone’s attention; a refined texture is a better way of keeping it.

With the Speedmaster Professional 145.022, you get yourself into the world of (vintage) Speedmasters without having to spend 5-digit prices. There’s a wide variety rolex milgauss pro hunter replica of iterations available, and when it comes to the signs of aging that these watches show, there will also be quite a bit to choose from.
