I think it would be difficult to claim oneself as a watch enthusiast without having some appreciation for both Rolex and Patek.

Yes, both are priced higher than what many may think they're "worth" but both have horological significance that any should appreciate.

I don't dislike any brand of watch but there are many watches I don't like the look of regardless of brand.

I think I could probably find a watch from most brands that I'd wear TBH.

You can't argue with the watch making/engineering and quality served up by Rolex/AP/Patek/JLC/VC etc...

Resurrecting the thread!
Rolex - love/ hate for me. Just says you are a rich prick. Except the Daytona, which exemplifies motorsports and leaves me in conflict about wanting one. Spending $10k for a 10 year old stainless steel watch is just crazy.

Tudor- says your want to look like a rich prick, but can't afford it!

Breitling- just bling without real style. I just don't like them.

Just bought a prohibitively expensive IWC. Why, I don't know. But I love it. The brand means a lot to me.

IWC is cool. Could never get behind rhe Daytona after having a fake one and it was such a piece of shit. The look just doesn't do it for me now.

Not sure I understand the disdain for Breitling. Im really only a fan of the Navitimer but it maybe only looks busy because it (was) functional, lol. Zero Bling IMO.


How anyone can spend $55k for a PATEK which I think is hideous looking is beyond me.
