What watch has your favorite dial... of any watch (whether you own it or not)?
fit on your wrist?
It's worth noting that sometimes your favorite case, bracelet, movement, and dial might not make your favorite watch if all were put combined into one watch (no doubt some horrendous results), but that's okay. I'm just talking about individual components.
I generally don't like chronos, but I'm really falling for the Speedy Pro dial. So simple, so sweet. It just looks right.
My favorite case is the Seiko SBQJ015. It's 39-40mm with a very short lug-lug distance that makes it fit over my small wrist very nicely. Looks great on my wrist. I know a lot of you guys don't like titanium, but I think it fits the thin, short case very well.
Favorite bracelet in terms of looks is the 1171 on my Speedy, but if you handled it, you'd likely be a little surprised (the bad kind). It's really light and it really does feel cheap. But it looks good. Favorite in terms of design is the one on the SBQJ015, except the clasp. Best wearability is the one that came on my Seiko Atlas (bought the whole watch ~$90, used). I must say I'm not a huge fan of the Seiko clasp (the folding part is too long), but the bracelet itself is great, IMO.
Favorite movement would be Spring Drive. I don't own one and have never even seen one in real life, but right now, a SD GMT is my grail. I'm just waiting for more funds and for a smaller case to come out. So far, all Spring Drives come in larger cases.
Best fitting watch overall is the Seiko Atlas, because of the comfortable bracelet as well as the short, down-sloping lugs on the case. I don't think I could design a 42mm case that fit better on my small wrist.
Overall look, that's the Speedy Pro. Looks GREAT on vintage-style bracelets, IMO. Second, I'd pick the Rolex GMT Coke, which I don't own and hopefully my obtain in the future. Explorer II looks great as well.
History/hype... the Submariner carries a lot of weight here, as does the "moonwatch" bit. It's sort of a toss-up, but the caseback stating "THE FIRST WATCH WORN ON THE MOON" tips the scale to the Omega. It could very easily have come across as a tacky move (like the "007" seconds hand on their "Bond" Seamaster ), but this one WORKS.
