Crikey. I am so glad that my watch obsession is over. Only Japan could spawn that beauty.
Yeh that looks stunning
These are very beautiful as well…
Just stunning. Almost a crime to put a Miyota in that thing tbh. Hands, dial and numerals all doing a lot for me, though.
How they still only uploading in 1080p. Cheez.
Also, seriously in love with the numerals on this
I’d rather have actual captioning.
Was literally just reading the HODINKEE comments about the price. This one summed it up perfectly:
Yeah I wasn’t sure about the numerals, but once I saw they’re engraved they make a lot more sense. Overall design of the watch is beautiful though, the dial and hands are “just so”.
I’ve handled the light blue dial “Seiji” one and it didn’t blow me away in the metal. It had slight microbrand vibes for me - nice, but didn’t feel special. The dial on the new forest green one is on a different level though.
Random question - does anyone have an isophrane strap and is it really that much better than a cheap £15 knock off version from ebay? I keep looking at one for my Alsta but the £135 ish price tag is rather off putting!
The timefactors one is nicer than the cheapies, but still not as good as isofrane. The real one is really good, but is there honestly ever really a world where the gains from a watch strap that costs 10 times more than another are anything other than subjective? It’s better, but not 10 times better. Marginal gains.
I bought the Omega déployant clasp for the rally strap on my Speedmaster- the strap is nice, the way it meets the case unique, but it’s the clasp that makes a difference I think more than the strap.
Sure but you could say that about anything - put a giant price tag on it, make it exclusive and wait for the right person to turn up. Still a terrible value proposition!
yes, Chrono24 suggest a price for your watch if you wish, but someone is trying to do rather well. As I understand it, Richard and Maria can sell what they produce, so an aftermarket happens, but they do not fuel it.
Little bit Fred Flintone imo. #fontsnob
Taking shelter from the rain this morning and found myself trying this on… I like the size, colour was nice in the flesh as well…
I've got a £100 off voucher for Tissot, in case anyone is considering one of these.
How does one acquire a £100 off voucher for Tissot (apart from doing a deal on your of course)?
You could try buying a vintage watch, have it stop working and send it in to repair to be told it's obsolete and they can't fix it.
I begrudgingly coughed up for a new Omega alligator strap for my Speedmaster, the deployant is an absolute joy. For the WIS’s this is the speedy reduced version with the more curved, case hugging ends. I feel like a brown strap with a black dial is a sign I’m firmly embracing middle age.
Did you get it from Omega?
