You could be right on that... but when I'M talking my hobby or passion with someone that shows even an inkling of interest... it's full speed ahead brother! Alan could have been converted to a discerning watch guy.

I have an appreciation and horology education thx to some passionate collectors and an old watchmaker that started his business in the 1890's and closed in the early 1960's... my basic gripe is the dismissive tone of the article. A non-watch person I showed the article to, said both those idiots should be slapped. One for his condescension and the other for his superficial ignorance... 'nuff said.

the author had a number of teachable moments with "Alan" but choose a slightly elitist snarky snobby direction... to wit: "As soon as I realized I was zoning out on this guy’s drivel," The article highlights for me that I wear a watch only for my own self satisfaction; that I like the way it looks, feels and runs... if someone asks about it I would gladly explain it in terms that wouldn't freak them out or insult their lack of understanding. Watch collecting should not be an elitist adversarial sport. The article reminds me of the many bad watch store sales staff that don't give you the time of day when you don't know a manufacturer, brand or obscure mechanical function....

Not as popular in the USA!? You conveniently left out that Sebring is part of the Triple Crown of endurance racing... and I'll have you know that the worlds first organised Endurance 24 hour Racing started in the USA in 1905 in Columbus, Ohio. Chopard does the Mille Miglia wstches with finesse the other stuff is kinda blah.... still trying to find an unpolished pristine Autavia or Jacky Ickx Easy Rider.

Nice work! She should do a traditional colorful Mexican Day of the Dead skull/mask version and the hour markers could be little tiny traditional mezcal bottles filled with liquid lume! Voodoo also has some interesting skull designs which this new watch hints at.,, as long as she can stay away from stupid biker skull designs the better.

Nice! My Rado Diver has an internal rotating bezel too. I like the idea and look of it but can't use while diving like you can an external ratcheting bezel. Price point on this watch seems to demand inhouse movement and case. Which I tend towards anyway when purchasing.

Nice... but back to reality. EVERYONE should buy a good fire proof safe. There are good values out there, check a couple of gun stores and with a little effort you can make shelving and drawers. It's easy to defeat those criminals at way less than the cost of a good watch.

Orient makes a nice product that is not too generic but does have a broadbase appeal. Though "dress" watch has become a bit passe, as a description since a suit and tie or even a tuxedo has been worn with almost any watch of late.

the extra leather under the watch strap is for protecting the watch while working where the watch may get damaged by dirt or debris... as the leather breaks in (gets wet) it becomes more supple and the protector can be rotated with one hand to cover the face. I have a few watches that have this original type leather fixing; mostly a feature from WW1 and early motorcycling. Triumph even offers a watch now with this feature and it does save your watch especially if you like moderately off road trails like I do. It is ok for a "faked" vintage STYLE but it is still a large target and way to pricey....
