Other than the B&R, what watch/ timepiece you liking at this current moment?

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:

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.

Thank you, I'm not a fan of gaudy watches. I have a plain MK chronograph for about 6 years now & I always get compliments.

It's like this Michael Kors Watch, Men's Chronograph Scout Black Polyurethane Strap 45mm MK8040 - For Him - Jewelry & Watches - Macy's but a different band
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

Decatur where its greater
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?
