I think I lean to the concervative side. The most wild I have is an orange seiko land monster and a stealth g-shock. I'm not opposed to more wild watches, just can't really spend the big $$ for the wild ones I like...linde werdelin oktopus, hautlence, that kind of stuff.
I do really like the skeletonized case design on this watch.

Very unique style. Kinda large, but cool. I'm in. For me the perfect travel watch has to have two time zones +, must fit with most dress styles (business/pleasure/etc.), and be durable. It's going to be in multiple environments and situations.

Could be good for hiking, or for giving myself an aneurism trying to figure out all the functions.

This watch would be great for any zombie apocalypse. Or just any hiking expedition in the arctic.

I'm leaning toward online. The ease of purchasing combined with ease of finding very "reasonable" prices is hard to beat. Thanks for the giveaway!

Yeah, I understand repeaters. . I was pointing out that (as mr. Adams points out) the two hammers on the back are the striking hammers....However...I am pointing out that it seems to have two on the front As Well. I was wondering if they were functional. Most repeaters do not have 4 strikers.

It looks like two miniature hammers inside the message ring on the dial. Are they for looks or functional?....if they are strikers at all.
What an awesome giveaway! I'm fascinated by pretty much every aspect of watchmaking. After I got into watches, about two years ago, I built my own watchmaking table. I've slowly built up a collection of tools, and of course, watches. My dream is to one day build one from scratch, so...wow, how awesome would it be to win this! I'm still in the tinkering stage. I just repaired to watches last week (minor issues only). I haven't gotten into the more intricate stuff, but will get there eventually.
Thanks for the opportunity!

Hmm. Tough call. I'd say I'm roughly 50/50. I really like the boutiques, because it seems that they are more willing to take design risks. Where as the big companies are more likely to keep in tune with their core designs. Understandable, they are a big company, and got their because of those designs. It's less likely that they will lose the majority of their followers if they stay consistent.
I like the big companies because you usually know what to expect...see above. Also, they have more R&D a lot of times...omega for example...silicium escape wheels, etc. longer time between services.
Both are respectable, and enjoyable to collect and wear!

I think this watch has a few features I would use fairly regularly. I like the idea of a flashlight, and the alarm would be pretty useful. I don't have much need for a tactical watch, but I can see how others would.

I grew up around muscle cars, so I like chrome. I tend to lean toward the shiny side of thigs. Polished just looks refined. I will say, though, that it can depend on the style of the watch.

Man, I love the Christopher Ward watch. Magrette has some great watches too. Though, any watch for Christmas would be sweet!
