Hitting the Spot

    I bought a Tudor Black Bay 41 with blue bezel a couple of months ago, I got it for a steal and thought it would be a beater. But I absolutely love it, I love how it looks, it works amazingly on so many straps and I’m ditching everything else I own because I love looking at the BB.

    Do you have a watch that you own that you are completely drawn to ?

    The Octo Finissimo - such a beauty that it makes me forget that I "really" need a date complication on my watches. Though I see they've released a perpetual calendar with date obviously - but at a price range that isn't for the average buyer - if they put a date at the 4:30 opposite the second hand maybe...

    But yeah the OF has been loved so long that I'm sure it's not just a honeymoon period.

    I think a Reverso might hit that sweet spot too but there's also the fear that it could be something so iconic that getting it might be a case of "meeting your hero" - I tried it on once in Weirs and maybe it was the grande size but it didn't sit well on my wrist I thought :/
