  • Alex, excellent choices. I liked the Breguet the Montblanc but my favourite is Frederic Constant Perpetual just stunning design and excellent price.

  • All these watches are about 10 past 10. What’s up with that? The Rolexs show even the exact same seconds. Probably computer generated images but what’s up with the aesthetics demanding the exact same time? Or is it marketing data suggestion that’s the best time for an alert yet relaxed purchase? Hmmmm.
