    Which brand do you think highly of, but just can't get into?

    Which brands do you think very highly of, but just for some reason can't get into?

    Mine are nomos and oris. I do respect both brands for their unique designs and overal quality. I would recommend them if someone asked me, and I Hope one day I change my mind.
    But...
    I think for me, nomos is a bit boring, perhaps just a bit too mature and refined for me if I'm honest.
    With Oris, they are great Vfm but I'm just not attracted their unique design in a way that activates my wis gene and makes me buy them.

    Nomos. I like the idea, but I don't love any of their watches. It's odd, because I do like modern and minimalist. But the actual designs just don't do much for me.

    Wow, I was going to say nomos too. I respect what they're doing but just can't find a model that does anything for me looks-wise.

    I feel like Hansel talking about Sting...

    Rolex.
    I admire their lush history and their classy brand philosophy that stands until today, but I find them just too small in diameter.

    Rolex. I know they make excellent watches but are waaaaay overpriced. Also, is the watch every snob aspires to... Same opinion with IWC and PP...

    Hope no one gets offended, not my intention....

    Rolex, I find them for the most part, boring.

    I feel like this thread has been done before.

    VC - they dont make anything I actually like.
    Damasko - I really like them but if I truly wanted tough, I'd get a Seiko Kinetic of a GShock plus that weird cross motif...plus I can't dig the clashing typography. I don't hate them and would gladly wear them but their typography is just off.

    Patek Philippe, simply because I can't afford them. The same is probably true of the others in the holy trinity and their ilk, but I think most highly of Patek.

    UTS. They appear to be very high quality. But they are just too big. Can't get excited about them.
