    I have a New Super Daily.
    The size is perfect compared to the Tudor GMT.
    The GMT looks and feels top heavy if you dont size the band right.
    The Chrono, since its a chrono, the size feels right. I sized it immediately to prevent the first impression like the GMT.

    For the price and finish, this Chrono and GMT may be the best pair bang for the buck if you can get both.

    IMO, the quality in this is better than most lower to mid tier luxury watches, except Rolex.

    This has actually been a lot of fun, today I wore my Breitling Colt Automatic. In 2002, I bought this watch after working all summer long at my summer job for $5.15 an hr and detailing/cleaning cars as well, I said to myself… “Self, I’m going to buy myself an automatic watch!”

    I spent half of what I made that summer to buy this watch. I wanted a no date submariner, BUT I couldn’t afford it and I didn’t want to ask my parents. I went into the AD negotiated the “deal” I paid $1,250 (same AD I still use and got my WG Sub from).

    I wore this watch everyday for nearly 15 years. Three graduations (high school, Undergrad/Masters), to start every “real” job I’ve ever had, first dates, last dates, countless sporting events, life moments, good times, bad times, etc.

    There aren’t many material items that could ever be present for all of these events over such a prolonged period of time.

    I appreciate watches for what they are technically and stylistically, but I also enjoy them for all the things each one represents to me.

    I’m out of watches to post, but it was good to blow the dust off these, which I haven’t worn in way to long!

    Erik

    I saw something about that the other day. I love the mechanical aspect of watches and the mechanics of that one, the talent to make it, to get it to work...all that.... simply astounding. Not a fan of the style but I'm not a customer anyway. :)

    That what I say whenever I check the time. According to my family, it gets old quick.

    The latest, No Time to Die. Supposedly Daniel Craig had a hand in the design. I asked for Ana de Armas as a gift but the watch will do. By the way, why isn’t there a thread on her here.
