Anyone had experience with either of them?
Suggestions?
I can't wear them daily for work so it'll be just weekend watch.


Just to make it more complicated I'll throw these two into the mix as well.

-IWC 3777 IWC Pilot's Watch Chronograph




-Omega Planet Ocean 8500

GMT hands down

Really like the quick strap changing system on the Panerai and already ordered bunch of straps.
Here is a wrist shot with a Stingray leather strap I just received yesterday.

Looks awesome! Is that the black stingray strap from Combat Straps?

No, it's a stingray strap from Taikonaut.
I really like how it tapers down in thickness towards the buckle ends so that I can use the oem clasp with this straps.
Two more straps that I got recently that I really like.

Hand made from Diaboliq straps in Germany.




Gunny Caitlin 8 strap.

need watch suggestion. Yes rolex is great and holds it's value, but i really don't want one.

What other watch would you suggest? 5-10k. I'm not saying i was another version of submariner, but as in diff. watch per se.

Its been over 20 years since I've gotten a brand new watch from a store. Just got this Bulova moon watch as a gift so its safe to say that it'll never leave my collection. I absolutely love it

Here's the interesting backstory behind this watch that's paying homage to the original which supposedly replaced a broken Speedmaster. Bulova Moon Watch Hands-On | aBlogtoWatch

Very nice. Strongly considering adding the Bulova Moonwatch to my collection as well. Fantastic value it seems.

Apple is apparently only behind Rolex in watch sales for 2015. It's like comparing Honda Sales vs Ferrari lol.

I think the tech watches are cool but I don't think i'd ever buy one. They eventually become obsolete because of how quickly the tech gets old and dated where as a "regular" watch will always be timeless (get it, hehe)

In that range, get a Steinhart. More quality for the price. And more "rare".d

Just ordered myself a squale. Some might hate on it because it's a Rolex Submariner homage

No, they dont sell them locally.
Can also check out Christopher Ward watches. Theyre pretty well made as well. On par with Steinhart finish and quality.

Check out German watches, tactical watches, watch accessories - Gnomonwatches.com
They sell a variety of good "micro" brand watches. And they ship here.

I was kind of on this boat as well, I have a couple of Seiko and Lum-Tec watches that I love to death.

Then I got a Gear S2 classic as a gift last Christmas... didn't think I would get that attached to it. A month later, it was my daily. Now I can't even imagine life without it. In the office it has been awesome to have my phone totally silent and get messages on my watch without bothering anybody. Plus if I am in a meeting, I can read a message and even respond and people think I am just checking the time.

Another great thing is when I get review e-mail or text safely while driving by being able to glance at it without touching it at all (it responds when you flip it up, and pops up the message on the screen automatically).

It does other interesting stuff too like reminders, weather, S-health tracking, sleep monitoring, a choice of hundreds of watch faces... but really, being able to read e-mails, texts, or messaging service chats without digging out my phone has been the best part by far.

Overall, it has been a solid watch... 3 days of battery life, wireless charging, and it looks great too. The classic S2 does not look like a tech watch at all really.
