    The Watch Cool Wall

    Per Shameless's suggestion, I'm starting a watch Cool Wall, akin to the one on Top Gear. This is where we post watches and see whether or not we think they're cool.

    Cool, of course, is multifaceted. What's cool to us may not be cool to the general public, so I think we should evaluate each watch in both of those lights. Both hoi polloi and cognoscenti ratings.

    I think we can start with a few easy ones (might even add a "Legend" fridge for some of these).









    I'll keep our findings in a spreadsheet and work on creating something to look out.

    Guys, just to make it easier for me, can you also post the names of the watches? I know I didn't, but I don't want to put the wrong name in the spreadsheet.

    Also, I challenge on the Datejust! I think it's just a little bit stodgy and therefore slightly south of cool.

    So this is what I have right now. It's a segmented category chart with an emoji sliding scale. The more expressive the emoji, the more clear of a view of positioning within the subcategory.
