@Lkcons @CG yep Trimix is right no Nitrox, don't know what "version" of Trimix but a few friends certified for that mixed gas cocktail dove Andrea Doria.... I did Crystal Springs caving a few times saw people there with Nitrox. BTW a few minutes longer bottom time doesn't seem worth it but shorter intervals is tempting

Pininfarina has become design whores like a few other car manufacturers in Italy. I have a pair of Pininfarina driving shoes pure pieces of Chinese crap. Pininfarina stopped being design relevant years ago... I agree with the hoaxable quality here.

Nice... straps are easier to adjust for me when going from wearing dive suit to wearing a warm water fleece skin or bare arm... 200 meters is plenty for 99% of all divers, now if you are Nitrox certed that's different. I have the first issue AL PM w/ digital depth gauge used it for years went thru 3 straps (they used to print dive tables on the strap...useful), this issue is slightly larger, even the original AL PM's were 200 meters. Nice sport diver but should be $600 price point.

Functions first, layout second. For me a nice chrono seamlessly blends those two priorities.

Seems they sold off the pricey pieces individually. Way too high starting bid but they have some real ringers in there too. Hate auctions where you have a few good items but you get stuck with the unwanted hard to even resell. An old auction ploy, gotta take it all the good the bad the ugly. Won't be doing business with Old World.

Why not a sex activity watch? Erection attained, press start/stroke button see SPM display and penetration graph. Maybe an Old Spice or Hai Karate dispenser on the side. Trojan could make the strap... think of the possibilites.

OH! NO! This is a must have for any hipster in a Che Guanovera T-Shirt... memories of CCCP repression and murderous thuggish world behavior is fresh in many memories. What's next? A Pol Pot diver? An NSDAP Chrono? There is nothing "cool" in any aspect about symbols of a repressive communist state. Talk to those that escaped, they speak for the murdered dead.

With a few of those Hublot/Invicta monstrosities thrown in for good measure, but if his implied predictions about the market for TH is true we will see nothing of any future value.

The problem with Mexico and other Latin/SA countries is business/market corruption, everyone needs a payoff... right down to the landlord! Crime in Mexico is almost overwhelming in some urban areas, every jewelry store has armed guards with subguns... there are reasons why the wealthy areas of Mexico City are walled in... it would be shear stupidity to purchase and wear a fine time piece in that environment. Every dealing I've had with Mexicans has been very positive they are good decent people shouldering a huge culture of greed and corruption.

METAS will increase costs... no gov't agency in the history of mankind is neutral. I think the Swiss are eventually trying to get State backing to compete in very expanding market. If METAS can define a superlative machine then it could be a good thing... but it still is a Federal agency reinforcing Swiss bias, nothing wrong with that!

First, owning a dozen or so Oris I think the price is pretty hefty for the company. $4K is a set of wheels and winter tires for the A4. It is well above the budget of any of the entry level Audi buyers which is where they are trying to hit a low price point here in the States. The silverish dished out dial looks like a cheap Gevril GV2 from 5 years ago. This watch doesn't retain or even introduce a DNA like the Oris Williams F1 line has done for many years. Their Special Editions are usually much better executed than this. No word about the box or accessories? Oris usually does a quality presentation of their watches in nicely done packaging. If it said "Audi Racing" and had team colors and motifs ala Tony Kanaan version I might buy it. Why they never took the Chronoris line and expanded it to branded racing line is a mystery to me. It's one of their iconic designs that needs a racing world association. Ok ... now someone needs to do a nice Triumph Bonneville watch!

I'd love to join ABTW/Oris on the Caymans, cause I've never been there to dive... they say the Caymans are a divers paradise. What is the certification? PADI? NAUI? If you haven't been diving in awhile and your log book is outdated, does a recertification count? Or is this for first time divers only?

Now if he would Parkerize OD and oil finish a black face greenglass Milgauss... I might take a second look. Poor guy, this article seemed to relish in snobbery and he may not be that way at all... but hundred dollar jeans and a velvet jacket make for a quick judgement... hipster fashion watches. Upper Westside hero. The actual quality of the mods looks poor for a Rolex maybe Fossil would be a better canvas for this lower standard of finish.

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....
