    The GS Snow-flake is absolutely beautiful watch, I love the dial and the finishing on the hands.

    If you're buying from Amazon direct, you could always return it if you don't like it. I think most watch shops have a decent return policy.

    Good point - Amazon do free returns on watches don't they? The only wrinkle is if that applies to imported via 'Global Store'...

    Not really in the know about watches but my dad can pick from a selection of gifts (mainly Womans Gucci watches, handbags and jewellery) but he can choose from a couple of Bulova mens watches, are they well regarded?

    These are the two he can choose from

    I think he is leaning towards the more modern Bulova Curv Chronograph Black as this is unlike any watch he already owns.

    If you guys had the choice which you would pick?

    I've been really impressed by the time keeping on the Seiko 5, been running for 6 days now, I honestly expected a lot worse.

    This on a lot at the moment. Really love the date function and know it's not traditional speedy for that reason, but I just love it.

    My current watch is a Seiko 5 sports. I've had for 2-3 years and it's been great at keeping time (providing I don;t leave it off for a few days :p)

    Help Me Ocukwan Kenobi.

    Looking to gift a watch to my almost Father in Law for my wedding. I'll be replacing the strap with a cloth strap of his regimental colours. Budget I guess up to £500, a classic watch for an Ex Sgt, 22 years in service who takes his smart appearance very seriously.

    I'm banging my head a bit, I've been wearing the same Citizen Nighthawk for 7 years until I can afford my breguet /s

    These are stunning and look absolutely fantastic, but realistically, for me, the legibility isn’t that great plus no date is a bummer which is my most used complication.

    I’d have to agree.
    Legibility is not ideal & I too miss not having a date. It’s worn in rotation with 20 odd other pieces, so I tolerate it.

    Prob flip it once the new AP ROC 38mm becomes available.

    Got myself Tudor Black Bay 58 today. I think I was quite lucky. Called Harrods, they quoted me 6 month wait list. Called watches of switzerland they basically said dont bother signing up on the list. Finally as a last ditch effort called up Bucherer in selfridges and they said they do not do waiting lists. If there is a watch they will try to allocate it and the very next day apparently somebody refused to buy the watch so they called, I came over within minutes (I work nearby) I bought it on the spot. Need to resize the bracelet still, will post a pic tomorrow probably.

    Not sure if I got extremely lucky or it is the exclusivity game ADs are playing with this watch.

    Uploading non-rotated picture seems to be quite harder now >_>

    Bought one of these a few months ago for my son. First Tudor I've ever purchased.
    I was really impressed with the piece overall. Not quite a Rolex Submariner but beats all the competition by miles IMO.

    Congrats & enjoy

    Cheers, it is a fantastic value for money watch.

    Here is the pic, figured it's best to take it off my boney hairy wrist for the photo!

    I have just bought a Seiko SKX009J and I love it. I don't get a chance to wear my seamaster much so just wanted something I could chuck on and not worry about.
