The Hublot Big Bang is favored by many ‘new money’ customers like soccer players, rappers, and the real estate broker down the street who recently made a small fortune

No money and no taste - buy an Invicta.
A bit of money and no taste - buy a Hublot.
Loads of money and no taste - buy a Richard Mille.

If memory serves, Nomos did something similar last year with a competition entry each day in December (not that I won anything).

TTWC has a good video up that might interest the military aviation watch-buffs here.

Thinking of Jesse's birthday present to Walt, I tried on a blue Monaco (€5,450 iirc ) in Weir's of Dundrum today. Beautiful watch, but just a bit, eh, square

Yeah he's definitely very good at this stuff. Very well produced vid. Though the history was more than a little flawed *pedant*.

High production value..he seems to repeat the narration from the cutaway segments which is a bit annoying

Quartz is king! Perfect for an actual "tool" watch.

A much better everyday option then a mechanical watch. A solar quartz is as good as it gets if you ask me. Accurate, robust, cheap, lasts for 15 years without replacing the capacitor and it's always ready to go even when you left it off your wrist for a week.

I love my mechanical watches dont get me wrong. But right now my 38mm Citizen Promaster tough Titanium ecodeive 300m watet resistant
With micro ratcheting clasp is just my ultimate tool, GADA watch.
