    nothing in particular.
    like the oyster perpetuals and datejusts,
    a sedate, basic three-hand model, even quartz models like the SBGVs.
    classic simplicity.

    my senior eyes don't appreciate the built-in toys anymore.

    The new Seiko Sumo with the 6R35 movement with its 70-hour power reserve is really good value for around 30k+ new.

    i have the seiko sea urchin, SNZF15, powered by 7S36.
    a bit heavy and bulky,
    but i am amazed at its out-of-the-box accuracy.
    less than 1 minute off in one week.

    the dots were staring at me throughout the quarantine. they're even more visible in high-quality pictures.

    the polished centerlinks, i think, are in concordance with the polished bezel.

    a fluted bezel would be nice, but only if it were gold. the watch blog guy advised, "get the gold fluted bezel and you won't be sorry."

    heh heh.

    i remember back when i was young,
    dad had a steel rolex with smooth bezel, cyclops, and blue face. i was enchanted by it. i vowed to someday get myself one...

    "dad... the servicing alone is already enough to get me a mid-range seiko..."

    Servicing cost.. are there options outside Rolex?

What brand of watch do you wear? [Merged]
