    So Bremont is beneath the guy and a small mistake offends, but he owns a A Langhe and BMW IWC and Seiko products,according to previous posts. Amazing.... Think those companies mistakes were slightly larger, you know in history....



    But..... that’s in the past... oh wait so is the Bremont situation. But I do like that’s Tudor chrono, looks pretty sweet. No worries just pointing out the strange imo reasons why one thing is bad but can let another slide.

    >>Nothing breeds hate faster than success<<


    ..that from the guy who told me minutes before how much he hates rappers 😂😂

    C‘mon it‘s not that easy and you well know it!


    I'd bet good money that if the Bremont owners came from France or Italy with the same background and wrongdoings - many of you guys here would be less forgiving 😉 - and rightly so!

    I didn’t say I hate rappers. I hate the music. Awful commercial crap spewed out. You don’t even have to be able to sing or play an instrument to be successful. And the lyrics are more violent and hate filled than any other music genre.

    So, you say that much of the hate for rappers is not because people hate their success but what they do and how they do.

    But when people hate Bremont, it‘s their success that they hate and not what they do and how they do?


    Interesting logic 🧐🧐

    It wouldnt bother me if the owners were from Timbuktu! The products should speak for themselves! But being British it's hard to ignore the xenophobia that's so thick you could cut it with a knife! As I said earlier Tag made a very similar mistake and they haven't had a fraction of the abuse Bremont has received. As I understand it Bremont had worked with lpj to develop the movement, which although not in-house is a widely used practice. At the end of the day if you like the watch then what does it matter if the movement is lpj derived or ETA as so many watch brands have powering them.

    Anyway I'll leave the Bremont story there, onto another Panerai W&W piece and one for the sailors amongst us. Pam013103 really liking the nylon straps and that they've moved the chrono controls to the left of the case which gives a cleaner look to me.

    That is nice! I went off the look of Panerais for a while but I think I'm warming to them again.

  • ChriscoopChriscoop Belize Posts: 10,437MI6 Agent

    Its only the last 3 years or so that I've become a big fan of Panerai tbh, I'd just overlooked them. But now I wear mine over any of my Omegas. Traditionally you needed big wrists or you wanted to make a statement but with them embracing 42mm case size across the ranges that's not necessarily the case (though 42mm is still a sizeable watch also with the crown guard bridge) even the paneristi favourite submersible bronzo has become available in 42mm as with this one below, again at watches and wonders and I do like the blue, and I think as the bronze ages the patina with the blue will look lovely.

    Seiko‘s Micro Artist Studio (MAS) only makes some dozens of watches per year!

    I don’t like their business practices. They’re up to something. Apart from making boring looking watches.

    Oh, a medium grade machine decorated outsourced movement as a kind of reply to probably the most perfectly hand-finished totally inhouse movement with mindblowingly executed bevels shows that you are a true connaisseur 😂😂

    Another designflaw on the Tudor Chronograph is their massive signature Snowflake hourhand, which very often covers the Subdials of the Chronograph to a significant degree.

    Most of the Chrono makers go with slimmer main hands to avoid this.

    Yeah I'm not sure why the luminor due is only rated at 30 meters when the luminor marine at 40mm case size is 100 meters 🤷 different movements I know but still !

    As it annoys you so much I’d revel in the fact that it was my greatest creation.

    Stark contrast to Asp9mm's "new job", this is drop gorgeous (pic from TRF)

    Globemaster annual calendar, part of the constellation range hence the little star.

    I was being facetious...😁 Had no idea there were so many 'masters' 😔

  • The Red KindThe Red Kind EnglandPosts: 1,994MI6 Agent

    I think the 'standard' now discontinued Globemaster is a fine looking, underrated watch. But I agree the monthly inscribed version doesn't look good.

    Not a fan of that AP, Higgy Bear.

    imo better than a 1016


    Why you may ask?


    • can be had for 10% of the price
    • larger than the 36mm on the 1016
    • sapphire crystal
    • no pitting issues
    • Date
    • “stealth hands“ vs. shiny whitegold on the 1016
    • working lume
    • no issues to get spare parts.
