  • What feature is a "no-go" for you?

    Could be anything. Maybe it's two-tone watches? Non-sapphire crystal? Maybe dial numbers vs indices? I'll get the ball rolling with any watch that has lugs greater than 22mm. Heck I prefer most of mine 20mm and under. What about you?

    Case size less than 40mm is about the only thing that I can think of, but I am sure more will come to me as the discussion goes on.

      Steel watch with a 44mm case, generally. I say that having two (I think) that size. Right now, I'm not into chronographs and I've never been into watches that are really gaudy (wild colors, etc).

        No-Go on watches in general? I don't like watches that have cheap plating, or watches with roman numerals.

          I do not like watches over 42mm Diameter, they must have a good lume and a date (the bigger the better).
          Cheers !

            Just no excuse for not having sapphire or ceramic bezel insert. And no excuse for not using sapphire crystal. Basically why I have lost all interest in Seiko, it seems many of the micro brands are doing what Seiko just won't.

              1) Watch heads with lugs that won't allow the use of a normal strap. Can't go there.

              2) Apple watches, or Smartwatch feature.

              Guess I'm not that picky, because I can't think of anything else.

              They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.

                Watches that look as if a high school sophomore was told to take the design aspects of 5 different brands and combine them. If you walk by the watch case in Costco you will notice such seems to be a large part of Invicta's design theory.

                  I said this about the 300m Marinemaster by Seiko for years. There is really no excuse - using cheaper materials and charging big prices. By contrast, the 1000m Marinemaster is worth what they ask for it - go figure.

                    Watches smaller than 40mm here too. Also, dive watches with anemic crowns. Not a fan of smart watches either.

                      Yeah, I guess I am not real fond of very small crowns or fancy / gaudy decorations. And, although I own a couple of watches with this feature, I generally don't like specialized bracelet lugs that you can not put normal width straps on.

                        Mine change but @ the moment. No Quartz, no case less than 42mm and no greater than 46mm. No lugs less than 20mm or more than 24mm

                          I'm surprised no-one said precious jewels on dials or cases. That is about the only thing that would steer me clear.

                            I'm firmly of the opinion that jewels belong IN a watch, not on

                              Yeah the anemic crowns on some watches bugs me. The Orient Star I believe could use a beefier crown.
