We’re not obsessed with time I tell ya!!!
Rolex 100 percent
That's an awfully negative and unhelpful opinion.
I love the Oysters. By the looks of Rolex's they seem too big for my wrist (I haven't checked them out in person yet so I could be wrong). But I basically have girl wrists, hahah, so need something that isn't bulky at all.
For the most part, you are correct.
80% status symbol
19% completes an outfit
1% to tell time (have a cellphone but is actually easier to look at my wrist)
That is a nice looking watch, seems like it would be good for small wrists too. Thank you.
Do Rolex's really fit little wrists well?
That Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39mm is beauuutiful. Love it. Guess I'll have to go in person to see how it fits on my wrist, because I would love to have that watch.
Before spending the money, understand what will be the use of the watch and learn about complications to see which ones do you consider a must.
Go anywhere, do anything?
Usable with different straps?
With that in mind, you can start to define the style you want, and afterwards, you can search for models that have those specific characteristics.
I consider legibility as a must, therefore, I avoid chronographs and dressy watches that lack lume. Date is important for me (i dislike date day complication). If I'm having something glued to my wrist, I'd rather have an additional benefit than just time and day, so I like the diver bezel. Watches that comply with my wants are classified as tool watches. Check the pelagos.
@Sonny gtfih and drop some knowledge
This is what I wear, Omega Seamaster GMT, 600m wr and a pressure cap, large yet not offensively, stylish yet not gaudy and of course it feels and performs like a 70s vixen running with wild horses.
An absolute man’s watch, but TS maybe your wrist is too thin? You could definitely try one out in store, the staff at Omega are very well trained, they may even suggest something more fitting for a male with suspiciously feminine arms such as yours.
Yep. This is good advice.
Seeing as how you’re going to be investing a considerable amount of money into this, you definitely want to be sure about what you want.
That said? For a do it all, every occasion watch, I like the Explorer(black dial). It’s fairly invisible to the naked eye. Subs with a date are pretty noticeable, GMT’s even more so. To me the explorer is bulletproof with a reliable movement. It doesn’t look out of place on a bracelet, leather strap, nato or even a bund strap. It’s classy, sporty and won’t fail you during a zombie apocalypse.
If you want something similar for a cheaper price I would check out the Tudor Heritage Ranger.
The steel Rolex shortage is legit, ladies and gentlemen.
I went in to buy a Submariner on Saturday and they said the best they could do was put me on the wait list 3 months out. I asked them if they had any Batman GMT Master ii's and they basically laughed me out of the store.
In a surprising change of heart, I actually got really intrigued by this Rolex Datejust 41:
I just can't digest whether or not this is too dressy for my daily routine. Also note 100% sold on that fluted bezel yet.
Drop a deposit with the store for the sub, I'm pretty sure you will get a call sooner than you expect.
Don't settle for something you don't want, that's an expensive route to end up with the one you wanted at first.
I like Stuhrling. They’re nice and reasonably priced.
This is the one I have.
Can confirm, u sound poor.
I am poor, donate me money on paypal please
But it’s the men that are supposed to give *me* the money ):
Dont be greedy be charitable with the money men gave you online, spread the wealth, help a brotha out. I will forever be grateful.
How’s that working out for you
If you just need to tell the time while your out in the woods roughing and you're not concerned if you lose it then I'd recommend a Patek Phillipe
Get a G-Shizzle
I actually do donate some of the money so, that’s good enough lol.
I bought a watch years ago for 350 in Miami. Use to wear alot of gold too but then I became a man and figured I didnt need bling bling to make me look cool.
