As weems said, a pet peeve for many, and certainly for me. I'm especially disappointed to see GS going down the limited edition route. If you're the type of person who heavily analyzes your options before a purchase, it makes that analysis impossible. By the time you've decided you want to buy one, they're already long since sold out.

Date window at 4:30pm is a no-go for me...which is why I can't get any sought after APs P Brands that makes models that I cannot tell them apart, like Panerai. I also do not like imbalanced dial, a small seconds window on the side...like the FPJ CBs and e...
My Pet Peeves

Rolex deliver almost every watch on a bracelet. Rolex never heard of a sapphire crystal case back. AP thinks a Royal Oak is enough. PP is afraid to come with modern watches. Brand neutral Pet Peeves: Complex strap attach systems, you can only chose what t...

What I find really annoying
By: VinnieD : September 9th, 2021-19:28
Is the lack of available product... it drives me crazy not to be able to walk into a store and just order a piece that I like. Waiting 1 year or so would be perfectly acceptable but having to buy less interesting pieces in order to have the honour to be o...

Unfortunately you are right, there are not many brands left but there are also always a few gems from almost every brand (I'm just thinking of my wonderful minute repeater from IWC from the good old days). I definitely won't let myself be blinded by any m...
Display backs on “tool” watches
