We open with a discussion of two watches that were just announced: the $49,000 Grand Seiko SLGA008 (aka the “tree ring dial”) and the $895 Bulova MIL-SHIPS-W-2181. Neither of us are likely to afford the Grand Seiko any time soon—listen as we lament about not investing in bitcoin when we first heard about it *more than a decade ago*—but the Bulova is pretty handsome and fairly priced. As Victor points out, you could get a WMT watch and get the same “look” for about half the price, but sometimes you’re OK with spending twice the amount to get a logo.
We also touch on the endless debate over big watches, with a brief turn to last year’s Tag Heuer Carrera Sport.
That about does it for this week. We once again extend our thanks to Andrew Haworth for producing. Please keep it locked to WristWatchReview.com and @wristwatchreview on Instagram for more fun watch content. Have a great week!
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
