    A good point, and as it happens VET attempts to solve exactly this problem. Using two tokens, it’s set up so that when VET rises, it also buys more work, keeping the price of the service it provides...

    Nonetheless, the result is a wrist shot with a watch that appears not just larger and overhanging, but also cartoonishly bulbous. You could say the woman in these photos isn’t distorted by the wide...

    A point well made. However I’ve come to the conclusion that a watch that fits well is one that looks good from both close up and from a distance. You should never have to think, ‘It looks a bit too...

    I suspect the big mistake was choosing 39mm, since they’ve now discontinued both the 39mm Explorer and the Oyster Perpetual 39. And now they’ve jumped all the way back to 36mm, presumably because...

    I think there's a slight trend, in that some years ago almost every watch seemed to be 42mm. Now every new watch I read about seems to be 40mm. But still a lot larger than vintage sizes.

    On the plus side, quality watches are products that last a lifetime, can be repaired and are widely recycled. So from that point of view they’re a model of the kinds of products we should make. On...

    For me the 36mm Datejust defines how 36mm wears, and other 36s wear large or small compared to that. Something like the Omega Aqua Terra 38mm defines 38mm for me, and is a noticeably larger size, but...

    Amazing to see the Explorer back at 36mm. The 39mm seemed a touch large, but I suspect the perfect size would be somewhere in between. One day Rolex will discover 38mm, for oyster perpetuals and...

    I’m a fan of dark green too, but this isn’t. Olive, it’s often said, is an acquired taste.
