Reasons one gets rid of their Datograph?

There are only a few chronographs with a really beautiful layout(imo), the Datograph, Kari's Masterpiece chronograph and Lang & Heyne Albert. Most of the other "simple" chronographs in the market that I have handled come up short in one way or another(I a

Titanium for classic looking watches

I wanted to get everyone’s view on the use of titanium on classic looking dress watches, what are the pros and cons from an aesthetic point of view? I am drawn to them because of their casual and utilitarian feel. Also, traditionally a dress watch usually

What is everyone wearing this Thursday?

I suppose it's because of the Chopard name and maybe the relatively small diameter. Finding one in platinum was one of the luckiest things that ever happened to me in the watch world. I had the white gold/salmon dial and looked for years for one in platin

Please don't take this the wrong way

I personally own a watch or two that is now worth more than what I think it's worth and 2-3 times what I paid for it many years ago. And I've kept onto that one and others despite the market conditions because I really enjoy that piece. I've been told man

Please don't take this the wrong way
