Popular watches that don’t do it for you?

Post by koimaster » November 20th 2020, 1:54pm

Everyone has different tastes but there are watches it seems that many folks flock to such as Seiko, Rolex and others. Which of the popular "it" watches do nothing for you?

For me, Rolex and Seiko, Tissot and Breitling. Inflicta is not worth my mentioning as everyone already has an idea what I think of the brand.

Rolex, Casio G-Shock, smartwatches.

Rolexes are very nice watches but the only reason the vast majority of Rolex wearers bought their watch in the first place is so people would see them wearing a Rolex.

The Casio G-Shock is information overload in a watch built for Invicta fans.

Smartwatches are on my list because it's yet another way to tie you down to a cellphone.

Not brands but design elements: open-heart, see through dial, crown guard locks.

Yes, this!

I dont think I would rule out any watch on brand alone.
