Thread: Things that you want that they're never going to make

    Things that you want that they're never going to make

    I would like a GMT watch, but instead of the second dozen hours being called 13, 14, 15 etc on the dial, I would like it to say 1pm, 2pm, 3pm etc.

    Usually I don't understand 24 hour clock instantaneously - I instead "translate" it into regular time - so having markings like "6pm" would give this function the same "at a glance" quality as the rest of the watch

    Presumably the cost saving of being made in SS is undone by it being a LE of 150?

    I've always assumed that half the time the reason people choose the more expensive Deep Sea is just to avoid the cyclops

    Great thread idea!

    - I want a no date Planet Ocean in titanium that is as thin as the 2500 with standard black dial and micro adjust bracelet clasp from the new 300.

    - Tudor Ranger in 39-40mm case with a white dial like the Rolex Air King



    - Tudor Pelagos with a darker shade of blue ceramic. I haven't seen it in person so maybe it's alright, but some photos is looks like cheap plastic.



    - Junghans Meister Chronoscope without the day, date, and coating over the acrylic crystal preventing you from buffing out scratches. Or a no date Max Bill Chronoscope with a display back, white dial and no coating on the acrylic. See how flexible I am?
