Was killing time at the mall this morning while waiting to see Santa and wandered into the Tourneau store just to do some window shopping. I fondled a few Panerai and the Radiomir in titanium really talked to me, but is very much outside my comfort zone price wise. The other watch that really spoke to me was a Bell and Ross BR 123. Simple and casual which is what my next watch will be. While I'm not in the market right now, it caught my attention enough that I'm browsing online just to see the various options. Very nice...
of all the B&R models, the 123 is the one I could almost see myself wearing. The rest, not so much. I think it's the visible screwheads that turn me off. The Hublots in that style also lack appeal for me.
2 watches that have my attention (and have for some time), but struggled to pull the trigger:
Panerai Luminor Marina
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Geographic
Very different, yes, which just means their is room for both...
