    Spring Drive GMT Pics

    Prior to joining this forum, I hadn't owned a watch that cost more than $40 since 1988. Iíd guess these are the first photos I've taken in a bit longer than that. While the G11 assisted as much it could, Iím going to need to find a way to defuse sunlight and then remember to pay attention to where the hands are during the shot. The latter is something that hadnít occurred to me until looking at picture after picture of jumbled up hands on the dial. Maybe a GMT with a sub dial wasnít the best place to start - I should have listened to AndrewSo and got a white dress watch when I had the chance. Everything else is as rudimentary as can be, so Iím going to take one more round next weekend before moving on to something else. This is the wedding watch we chose, great thanks to the guys in the Seiko and Citizens forum as well as the folks who answered a couple of my posts in the public forum (not referring to the outdoor club idea here). These photos and any that follow are your collective fault.

    Looked at a lot of posts like this before making my decision. I'm still not sure who's right, but ultimately we simply choose the watch we liked best:



    I think this would have been the best shot, but I buried the GMT hand:

    Beautiful watch, I have checked out the Spring Drive line at an AD. I was extremely impressed. I will have to wait for a long time before I consider going ahead with buying one. The model I like is $6800.00.

    With such great taste, why should you follow AndrewSo's advice? That guy doesn't know what he's talking about.

    That Spring Drive is magnificent so don't be afraid to dress it up or down. A grey dial dress watch is simply an inconspicuous version of a white dial dress watch. And that's how it should be.
