    Taste is subjective, but a classic design is always a classic design.

    Tudor are great, build quality and engineering chops of Rolex, but without the brand tax and fancy proprietary metals which keeps the costs more in line with what is actually on your wrist, as opposed to what people are supposed to think about what's on your wrist!

    Plus, they basically are Rolex in all but name. I'm so glad they have found their own identity in the past several years.

    I don't think this has been posted already but has anyone tried the Watch Accuracy Meter. It works by using the microphone on your phone to detect the bpm and the rate.

    I've tried it on the 2 watches I have that I know the rate and it seems very accurate with one being spot on at -4 seconds and the other 1 second out at +9 seconds although I only tested them with the dial up rather than various positions.

    I don't tinker with my watches so it wouldn't lead me to try and adjust them but could give a timely indication of when a watch might need a service.

    Never knock the G-Shock, it's a design classic.

    In other news, God bless the Swiss:

    Sadly, the strap broke long before the ten-year battery ran out - and a replacement would have cost more than the watch did. Boo-urns!

    Still a great looking and functional watch for the money.

    I have moderately expensive Oris Watches but the closest I get to zero is with an inexpensive Ingersoll fitted with a cheap Japanese movement at 1 second the second closest is a dirt cheap Pagani Design GMT probably fitted with a $5 movement at 3 seconds :oldconfused:
