I'd be fine with anything as long as it's well built and interesting

Have you heard of Autodromo? They're quite a new brand but their products are all based on motorsports and cars (hence the name).

 

The Autodromo Stradale is just slightly above your budget at $875 but it is automatic, well built, and interesting.

 

For $600 it's going to be really really hard to get something like a Rolex, Breitling, Omega, etc no matter the age or condition.

An Omega Geneve seems to be around my price point. Seen some decent ones.

 

The Autodromo Stradale looks fabulous, definitely on my watch list now.

Personally, I think the Omega Geneve looks a bit old for people our age.

Just ordered this today:

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Calibre S

 

Cost me €950, a bit over budget, but I absolutely fell in love with its design. Should be here in 2 weeks as it's coming all the way from Hong Kong.

 

It is used, not new!

Great choice. Love the steel and blue face. Classic submariner design, never gets old.

Nice. I'm angling for a Calibre 5 as a birthday present from the wife, one of the 2016-17 43mm models

So it's A Big Birthday for me in 2018, and my wife has offered to buy me a new, everyday watch (I think she's secretly trying to discourage me from buying and selling second hand watches like I was doing a couple of years ago).

 

My initial though was pretty straightforward and obvious (Seamaster Planet Ocean or Aqua Terra 15000) but to be honest I fancy something a bit different. I recently discovered that Tag Heuer have started doing Titanium versions of the Aquaracer series, mostly Titanium Carbide coated.

 

Then I spotted this Limited Edition:

 

2016-TAG-Heuer-Aquaracer-Titanium-Sand-1

 

Not sure why but really like the look of the black titanium/sand detailing. Pretty sure my wife will hate it though, so I'm pretty sure it's going to be the black on yellow model.

I agree with your wife. You're no spec op desert warrior :p black on yellow looks a helluva lot more sophisticated. Though at the same time I can sort of see where you're coming from as I also pine for some strange colour/material combos when it comes to things. But because it's gonna be your daily I think it best to stick to something a bit more versatile.

I'd like to acquire a new Cartier Tank as I think they are a very timeless creation. Unfortunately, at this moment in time, my bank account does not wish to agree with my desires, so in the meantime, I am thinking of a small upgrade from my beloved Hugo Boss.

 

Lightly browsing, I found this Gucci G-Frame Collection (I'll provide the link below). Now I wouldn't be one to dive into a brand just for the image; however, I think this watch would fit my life accordingly between work and play.

 

What would be your suggestions, do you like this watch?

Never been a huge fan of the Gucci watches, but I suppose that's a personal aesthetic thing. If I was going that way I'd be looking vintage.

So in typical style, after coveting something for ages I buy something different on a whim.

2015 model Aquaracer Calibre 5 500m (with the helium release valve) in blue. Last MY before they moved onto the oversize bezels. Brand new, 2 years warranty. Haven't loved a watch this much since my Omega Seamaster.

New tape cassette player for the car:

Very powerful. Also bought a Sony Cassette MP3 adapter

Now I can play all the songs from my xperia without having to burn a CD or buy a bluetooth player.

 

 

My watch, a BvIgari Rettangolo

bvlgari-silver-rettangolo-watch-21850206

 

It is a 1998 model though it has citizen promaster original wristband since the original was leather and it wore off. And no you cant find the original wristband cheap.

As it's summer, I decided to throw my old F1 on a £5 eBay NATO strap.

Actually really happy with how it came out.

One for the travel types.

 

Anyone happen to have been to Jerez (de la Frontera) before? Looking for somewhere decent to eat tonight after our sherry bodegas (Tio Pepe, Sandeman). It's Feast of the Ascention so lots of stuff seems to be closed.
