The watch appreciation thread

Recommended Posts


Wearing my relative's watch. SKX013, 38mm. The Nato strap adds too much height and bulk to the watch.


I had to remove the Nato to get a better feel for how the watch wears on my wrist with a more minimalistic strap.

Blimey, a customer came in wearing an OP Date from the 1970's. I like this form factor very much. Very, very much.

In feel, this is the opposite of contemporary watches. Where contemporary watches try to be chunky, substantial, massive and solid---brutalist---this watch tries to use as little steel as necessary. It is light, small and thin. I can definitely see something like this in my future, perhaps a previous generation Air-King at 34mm, just like this watch.
