I'm with you. I tend to not even like most chronos because they look busy and it's a useless feature.

I'm with you as I prefer understated watches as well. My JLC fits the bill perfectly

Rolex Submariner?
Omega Seamaster?
Breitling?
Tag?

I'll start: Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer (ref.2531)

Bling bling!
Lol!! Old school, I sport a Samsung FIt! Cheaper and more efficient!

Apple Watch Space Grey right now. I was wearing a Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean ref. 2918.50.38 daily but ended up swapping out the orange band with the stainless steel. Still my all time favorite watch.

I wonder if anyone else finds that when they wear their nicest watch they invariably aren't driving, and so it and their BMW never are seen together?

That didn't occur to me until today when noticed this thread got a new post and I thought of a recent event when I donned an Altiplano and didn't drive any of my cars.

All the best.

A month later and nobody else seems to have that happen. I guess I am the only one, or at least the only one here, for whom it does.

All the best.

it's interesting to see how a large proportion of a first luxury watch purchase is a dive watch (ie. rolex, ball), or something with a very technical complication (ie. breitlings or omegas)

i got into the watch game late. my daily drivers are a Hamilton Jazzmaster Maestro and just a recently acquired Stowa Marine Automatic. i don't have pics at the moment, but i love the stowa, it is so simple clean and classic, and german watches go well with german cars

i prefer a watch with a simple/understated face (even my Hamilton with a chrono is a bit busy for me). also something a bit off the beaten path - ie. not a mass-market watch. my dream (once the MBA loans are paid off) is a JLC or a Vacheron Constantin
