Thread: Look at what's on your wrist *right now*....

  1. #1

    Look at what's on your wrist *right now*....

    ....and tell us: what's the thing that - at this one random moment - especially struck you about it?

    For me, it was the golden light from small lamp by my sofa reflected in the silver dial

    The way that the hands blend into the dial and leave just the lume markers to show the time as if they were floating.

    For me I'd say the hole eaten in my skin from muriatic acid... Should have worn gloves I guess

    Sinn 556A. I wanted a no-nonsense watch with "stark" and German being the key descriptors. It provides that in spades, but unless I can tweak it in three or four different ways it can't stay:

    The French vanilla ice cream look of the lume (that was undoubtedly earned by time, not by fake "vintage" lume).

    I'm wearing my MM300 today.

    That this humble old Tudor is 65 years old, and apart from movement servicing, new seals and a new crystal (and a not-great redial job), it's all original inside and going strong. And it was my dad's watch, and I remember him when I wear it.

    And I just like its simplicity.

    I can focus on it - Because I have my 'readers' on
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    That the hands on a Max Bill are so striking, considering that there's so little of them.
