    Any watches you feel you should like, but just don't.

    The first one that springs to mind is the Rolex date adjust. For some reason it just reminds me of a watch worn by teachers and accountants. The bezel is especially tasteless. The present Yacht Master is also a pretty horrible watch. I'm afraid it just looks like the sort of thing a very cheap Chinese designer would have come up with. As much as I love the Hublot fusion range, I find the Big Bang watches disgusting. Of course, I could scour the internet and find loads more, but these just shout at me. Finally, and I hope nobody hates me for it, the Omega Speedy Moonwatch. Until recently I owned one. Prior to owning it I thought it was beautiful, then after a while fell completely out of love with it. To be honest I just don't know why, perhaps I found it boring, who knows ?

    Plenty, but not to the same level. I like lots of parts of the Aqua Terra including the overall feel of the watch, but all together it just doesn't work for me. Too bland.

    Given your list above, why do you feel you should like any of those? Hublot is an easy target for people to hate on for example, but what makes you feel you should like them in the first place?

    Another thread with people not reading half of the main point?

    Is this just another "I hate..." thread with no thought as to whether or not you feel you should like it?

    Sigh. Out.

    The Hublot example was poor to be honest, however there are iconic watches I feel WIS's are meant to appreciate

    I feel like I should like the Seiko SKX and similar divers - but I find them too bulky and plain

    I agree about the datejust/daydate Rolex models. The fluted bezel now looks pretty dated.

    I concur. Fluted bezels are way over the top.
