    Don't know about a Zissou, but for all thigns Russian, you can't go wrong with https://www.poljot24.de/

    I know why I don't like Rolex, but I am baffled by Panerai.

    Just can't see the appeal.

    This is definitely something I need to look into.
    I don't have any one piece that is high value, but collectively, there's a fair bit tied up in them.

    I had Sicura chrono that looked like a Seiko Pogue. I bought it as a fixer-upper. When my tame horologist suppressed his gag response, he told me that the old EB pin pallet movement was so shockingly...

    Despite being a tool watch fan, I'm not wild about the field watch as a format. However, that Smiths and the CWC are very nice indeed.
    Damn you, watch temptation!

    @Aimforthebushes: I like the contrast of the metal bezel with the blue dial, that really works.

    Not mad about a polished bezel, but the natural dulling, without buffing, works very nicely there.

    I've vowed to sell two watches before I buy anything else.

    Given the level of interest I've had, that should easily cover 2022 :(
