[Quote] Do you mean the one with the black strap? I think it's a Burberry watch.

I recently saw a vintage IWC pilot watch for around 2G's. There are a lot of decent vintage swiss watches around your price range. But make sure you know what you're doing first, before purchasing a vintage watch.

I think if you went with a swiss auto, you wouldn't be as annoyed with adjustments. The Chinese Seagull movements you had were probably +5 MINUTES a day lol! The Seiko was probably +30 or -30 seconds per day since it's a vintage movement and most of all... unserviced for a very long time. The Invicta probably didn't give you too much trouble with accuracy (if you got a good copy), because they have a reliable Miyota 8215 movement in them. The only problem is... Invicta probably found a way to fuck it up since they are a shit brand. And finally, you had to adjust them all everyday, because you have 7 watches in rotation. I enjoy adjusting, cleaning and changing straps on all my watches. Quartz watches feel soul-less to me.

What autos did you have?

[Quote] This has a Valjoux 7750 but it cost $1060. Most watches with Valjoux start around that price and it can go up high. $1060 is actually really good for what you get. [Image]

It looks a bit busy. I like the business of a Breitling Navitimer, but I don't really like this.

I love Bluelans slogan "We make things better" hahaha. We know everything is poorly made Chinese junk. I don't think HB should be a market you should aim to attract, because it won't happen. The women's purse thread from Bluelans is worse, because 99.9% of HB members are male.

Hahahaha. WTF is wrong with you? A fitted at a wedding? SMH! I don't think I've ever used SMH in the history of my life. What's even worse is a Civil War theme for a wedding. Are they going to serve southern fried chicken as appetizers? Is Abraham Lincoln going to do the ceremony lol? I think I'm going to have a Power Rangers theme wedding at Chuck E Cheeses when my time comes lol.

[Quote] I have nothing but respect for your choices in apparel. It makes you sound like the cool dad haha. However, I disagree with your statement on not outgrowing street wear. I think everyone at some point will (everyone meaning the majority) outgrow street wear. I'm pretty sure that you can agree with me that when most people get older-older, they start to dress differently. Imagine a 65 year old in a Hundreds tee 40 years from now. I think some people might change their style faster than others. My mom used to get mad at me for switching my hobbies very often, but I get tired of things easily.

[Quote] I most definitely would not. I remember seeing the Hyundai Equus reviewed and compared to the likes of Rolls Royce. At the end of the review, the commentator said "it's a great car, but when you think about it... it's a Hyundai." I felt the same too. When I look at the new line of Timberlands that look like Oak Street Bootmakers, Quoddy, Yuketen, etc. I remember how ghetto Timbs used to be. If Nike wanted to explore into new territory, they need to create a subsidiary brand that doesn't have a publicly announced relation to Nike. That way, no one will think... "Oh, it's a Nike brand." A smaller brand is a whole different story. If you remember 3Sixteen in their early days, they had street wear. Now they have grown-men clothing including great japanese selvage denim, button-up shirts, and even ties.

First time I've heard someone say "autos" are not their thing. Auto is a must for me, or a hand-wind movement like a swiss Unitas.

A few years back, I was into street wear. When I started working in an office, I had to wear dressier apparel. Because of that, I started to mix street and workwear (outside of work). It was kind of an odd combination, but I think it worked. As for the present, street wear is not an option for me. When someone dresses more "adult", I think they feel more sophisticated, respectable, educated, mature, responsible, etc. As people get older, their habits and tastes evolve. I think you're contrast theory on street wear and upscale fashion is just a transitional phase. I think eventually, everyone in this transition will fully crossover to the more upscale fashion. It's happened to me and one of my friends is now doing it too. I always laughed at him for wearing graphic tees, varsity jackets and fitted hats. Even though, he still had LV, Ferragamo, Burberry etc. he still wore street wear. I said "you look like a kid." One day he just snapped and now he no longer wears street wear. He sold all his Supreme and made bank.
