Thread: Good old faithful

    Good old faithful

    There are probably a few threads on a similar vein, but let's re-live it:

    Plain and simple - Out of your whole current collection, which is your all time (so far) favourite?

    Mine?, I've said it before perhaps, but this one:

    Reason: I just freakin' love it

    What's yours ?

    Coming up to 17 years of ownership, and still like it as much as when I bought it.
    Note to self: Take a better picture !

    Don't feel happy giving the title Old Faithful to something I've only had for fourteen months....

    That's a tough one. For me, I think I would have to go with the RGM TZLE.



    It's an amazing and understated watch. Exceptionally thin and with a twin barrel Lemania movement in it, it keeps great time.

    What is funny about this watch is that I am not a huge fan of the dial. It's not that I don't like it but more that I see so much potential in the watch to make it better. So much that I bought a second copy of the watch (of which there were less than 49 produced based on my conversations with RGM) with the purpose of having RGM make a guilloche dial for the second one. Also, the second copy I bought had the beautiful engraved rotor which I find more interesting than the stainless steel rotor on my first copy. There was actually a third variation of the rotors produced in gold with Geneva stripes.

    Now, that's a nice one
    I actually like the dial , but I do have an Epos with 'similar' dial

    Can I give the chrono back to my wife, anniversary gift from long ago? But either way if I had to keep only one it would by the 2255 as modded.

    Hmmm. I've been staring at this thread for fifteen minutes, thinking about what would be my favourite watch, and I can honestly say I don't have one individual favourite. I have a favourite dive watch, two favourite dress watches, a favourite vintage LED, and LCD, a favourite G-Shock, and so on. But even narrowing it down to just a few favourites, it's difficult to choose just one of those as an overarching, single favourite. Maybe I have to think about it some more....

    EDIT: I guess, upon reflection, I'd have to go with my King Diver:

    Not least due to our lengthy relationship: 38 years and counting.
