Rolex: Ref. 5513/5517

Not my watch but I had the opportunity to see one and try one on. I think the hands give it a charming character. Not being knowledgeable about Submariners, I discovered that it has hacking seconds; nice timepiece.

IWC: Beautiful Watch

Designed by Hano Burtscher and using a Valjoux 7750 with Kurt Klaus engineering the perpetual calendar and Richard Habring the spilt seconds mechanism under the Günter Blümlein era of IWC, this watch continued the spirit of mechanical watches in the dominating quartz market and thus has so much IWC

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Very nice idea. You are a danger to my finances.

I like the with lume version too. Not that I would have the chance to buy one, but if this gets approved, I'm sure it would make for some very happy forum members.

Breguet: I still think the 7037 is the best version and one to buy.

The smaller size of the case is more in proportion to the size of the movement and there are no overlapping and missing markers, which is an instant deal breaker for me. Also, I don't understand why in the watch design world it's acceptable to have overlapping indicators which cut numerals and remov

IWC: Thanks for pointing that out...

I'm aware of the reference 5000 models. However, it would be nice to have the twin main springs, ceramic components of the Pellaton winding system and other upgrades in the newer calibres.

IWC: I'm curious...

Why do you think the rail-road track doesn't work? I saw this 325 in the IWC museum. It has rail-road track markings and rectangular hour markers and at least to my eyes it looks great.

IWC: Fantasy redesign...

Just for fun, a quick and dirty Photoshop job on IWC reference 5007. What do you think? It's trash or here's my cash.

Baselworld/SIHH: Probably an unpopular opinion here but...

I think the subdail arrangement is compromised. They are too close to the centre of the dial and one another and this makes it appear more cluttered than is necessary. This seems to be a symptom of putting the small 30mm 82xxx in a 42mm case. I think the subdial arrangement on the reference 5033 is

Baselworld/SIHH: The blue dial would be my pick.

This is a good choice for those who want a smaller diameter and automatic winding. The lack of 'Automatic' printed on the dial and the lack of a date are positives in my opinion. I also like that the movement has some skeletonisation to it so that you can see the gear train instead of having a bridg
