    I like Breitling, and the Royal Oak series from Audemar (but I can't afford them Piguets :to:)

    my style in watches are usually big face, and dark-stealthy-sporty looking.

    the TW-Steel TW129 is my style 100% and not badd for the price, compared to them $100k Audemars, and it looks just like my favorite, B&R Phantom :ahh:

    TW129:

    I'm mostly a fan of simple chronographs or skeleton watches. I'm also starting to become not a fan of leather bands

    Speaking of which, after rocking the B&R for a day, realized I need to switch to a deployment clasp leather band. The current one is type restrictive to a degree.

    Watch is crazy heavy too also, so a lighter band may help.

    outta those, I'd choose the Hamilton.

    reminds me of the inside of an Aston Martin V12 Vantage :noah:

    same. when it comes to mens timepieces for my guy(i'm obsessed with them) i prefer classic sophisticated pieces...chonographs and skeleton are the sexiest types imo as well. leather bands can look really elegant too depending on the watch tho.

    The only thing I don't like is over time they dry out & start cracking

    Broke down and got the SARB065, I'll probably end up getting the Hamilton one soon anyway lol. Got it for $560 including shipping from Higuchi. I've heard nothing but great reviews from the japanese retailer, so I'll report back once I get it, hopefully Monday.

    What are everyone's favorite brands? or country of origin to purchase watches from? Handwind or Auto?
