I actually prefer the Ladoire to the Fifty Fathoms. A London shop had one in for 75% off at an invitation-only sale. I was very tempted.



That movement looks fantastic.

If you're after a non-traditional watch...



It's the Bulgari Gérald Genta Gefica. There's an old write-up at aBlogToWatch.



Genta was the designer responsible for the IWC Ingenieur, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Nautilus. This was developed under his own watch brand, which was acquired by Bulgari in 1999.

I suspect that @Giles won't like it. I'm not 100% sure about it myself, but it strongly appeals because it's so different, and I've got a bronze case fetish going on right now. Apparently there might still be a few new old stock pieces floating around...

I'd like to see how the Bulgari wears. It's quite a bit watch, but I'm used to wearing a 44 mm piece on a daily basis, so it might not be a problem.

aBlogToWatch has a piece up about Bremont. @GingerMagician might be interested in reading it.

@madmonday my father is always telling me how expensive mechanical watches won't keep time as well as a cheap Timex. So @Tempvs is doing you a favour by not sharing any of his collection. ;D

That's cheating. It taps into the atomic clocks used by the GPS system!
