Weekend warrior watches - I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.

 By: Lankysudanese : September 17th, 2021-07:50
Dear purists Several of us incorporate different parts of our collection to different days of the week and different activities, with weekend activities/duties being an important part of our week My weekend duties include activities with my two young boys...  

I have two watches for that...

The Air King: And the Tudor Black Bay Red. Two " no fears " watches. ...  

Great picks, as always, Nico.

That is a “Sin”! Oops I meant

 By: iceheller 1945 ✌️ : September 17th, 2021-08:00
Sinn. I just saw it in boutique. That is a nice watch. They used to give steep less but now not so. Nonetheless, that is still a great watch. And the young man is handsome! Should attract lots of gal next time when he grow older!

🤣🤣🤣 nice one.

My regional retailer gave me a nominal discount, just to appease me. I got it when they had a 13 week wait period. They seem to be more readily-available from the manufacturer now, and if you live outside of the EU, you can save the VAT. And thanks for th...

Great question. I usually go for my Grey Side of the Moon - ceramic on nylon strap. Wishing everyone a great weekend! Cheers, Jérôme Green nato Omega strap ...  

Cool combo with nylon straps!

 By: amanico : September 17th, 2021-08:10

Thanks 🙏

 By: Jp75 : September 17th, 2021-17:15

That looks fabulous. But I worry about my wrecking crew chipping the ceramic.

 By: Lankysudanese : September 17th, 2021-08:17
My worries are probably unfounded. Have a great weekend

Was indeed of of my concerns originally

 By: Jp75 : September 17th, 2021-17:19
It was indeed one of my concerns originally. Meanwhile I’m fine with it: no scratch, no dent and a low weight that makes it a good weekend watch, especially on nylon/NATO strap. I understand that Ceramic will not dent but could potentially crack or chip -... 

You would be correct in that there aren’t many such reports on this forum.

 By: Lankysudanese : September 17th, 2021-17:22
But there are a few YouTube videos of IWC ceramic cases cracking. Judging by the deep lug dings/bends on my Batman, nothing is beyond the reach of my ‘wrecking crew’. That GSTOM is pure horological class, though. Dial. Case. Movement. 👌🏿

Blackbay for me

 By: Cookies : September 17th, 2021-08:26
This is my best weekend warrior watch for hiking and supermarket visits.=D ...  

Likewise, inspired by your red blackbay.

 By: Cookies : September 17th, 2021-09:46
I recalled u got the piece really early when it was released.

It really is meant to get battlescars

 By: Cookies : September 17th, 2021-09:46
It looks more beautiful with the scratches and dings.

Since my emergency rescue shift is on weekends normally ...

... I mostly wear my reliable and robust Tudor Pelagos LHD: Marcus ...  

And I nearly forgot to mention that one - most fitting:

 By: Marcus Hanke : September 17th, 2021-09:01
PPro Emergency Watch: Marcus ...  

Superb with its red strap!

 By: Lankysudanese : September 17th, 2021-09:33
Have you guys seen the Sinn EZM 12. Sounds like Sinn should offer one to Marcus, to help in his job ...  

I didn't know this one!

That’s my choice too!

 By: cazalea : September 17th, 2021-13:38
It looks and feels indestructible (whether it is, I cannot say). ...  

Like everything else that is solid, this is probably unobtainable in today’s world.

 By: Lankysudanese : September 17th, 2021-14:52
Would I be incorrect in this assumption?

Currently two vie for those slots:

 By: blau : September 17th, 2021-10:58
IWC 3706 And Panerai 973: But the truth is, tough watches eager for outdoor duty have been calling to me more and more lately, so I suspect they're going to get another competitor soon. ...  

Awesome picks, especially the PAM.

 By: Lankysudanese : September 17th, 2021-11:28
Is that the new 42mm submersible?

It certainly is

 By: blau : September 17th, 2021-13:32
I *love* wearing it. I'd never owned a Panerai before this one, but this just a great watch.

That’s a very enticing configuration, too.

 By: Lankysudanese : September 17th, 2021-11:46
Well-chosen, my friend

The boat cleaner…

 By: myles721 : September 17th, 2021-13:17

Love the name/nickname.

 By: Lankysudanese : September 17th, 2021-13:35
That’s a solid piece for sure. Let’s see the boat

Thank you Nico…

That offer still stands you know…Hudson valley by boat ...  

You’ve just ‘check-mated’ us

Hope that you are desk diving certified 😂

 By: Lankysudanese : September 17th, 2021-19:11
. These newer seamasters are very formidable, in every way possible. My colleague just got one. Have a good weekend

Love that combo my friend! On my side it would be my BB

You have many great choices at your disposal.

 By: Lankysudanese : September 18th, 2021-13:39
And this Darth Vader is the best equipped of them all. Love it

Wow, Bill. I haven’t seen Sinn divers pictured in a more natural habitat.

 By: Lankysudanese : September 22nd, 2021-04:16
You wear the U1 very well. Enjoy, and thanks for the support
