    The answer to all such bracelet problems is to buy Ginault's. The quality is superb, as is the glidelock. And not a fake rivet in sight.

    Yes, this would be a fantastic option. For me, it's the independently adjustable hour hand that is the more useful 'upgrade' over the 9F (on which changing the date is extremely quick and simple).

    I'd recommend Grand Seiko quartz without hesitation. The finishing is astonishing and it would cost you barely half your budget.

    I'm afraid I can't help but hopefully some member here can.

    If you return without a Grand Seiko on your wrist, though, it will be an affront to all things sacred east of Suez.

    Yes, I would second this. I imagine very few non-WIS have any interest whatsoever in having to faff around winding and/or setting a watch.

    I can only echo the above. Far and away the most interesting high end collection I can remember seeing on here.

    Do you know for certain your wife likes the Cartier look? Variations on this thread pop up regularly and I think the correct answer is always to let her choose for herself, even though it might be a...

    I quite like Rolex but have no real intention of buying one again. I read all these threads with a mix of smug schadenfreude and a bizarre sort of fascinated ennui, if that's not contradictory....

    Very interesting.

    I look forward to the swiss brands informing us that watches without lubricants lack soul.

    Legibility on the pre Maxi dial Rolexes is uniformly mediocre, imo. The hands are quite thin and, in general, polished metal hands will always have problems under certain lighting conditions /...

    I've had a Chronomaster and currently have the SBGV005. Both are superb. On paper, the Citizen certainly outscores the GS but:

    Why stop there? Better yet: buy a spare watch, remove the original, store safely etc. etc.

    Option 2 sounds better to me ;)

    justonemorewatch has reviewed some. He seems to give pretty unbiased reviews and quite liked the most recent one iirc.

    Roman numeral DJs aren't really my thing but, more importantly imo, legibility on these dark blue Rolex dials is pretty poor.

    I'd say everything about those hands is absolutely spot on (and a big improvement on the original) with the single exception of the lume colour. Have you thought of getting them re-lumed?
