this question occurred to me the other day looking at the daily WRUW threads across the various fora i visit daily...

you've got a favorite brand but there's one model you really don't like. could be for one small thing about it, could be everything about it.

so- what's your favorite brand and the model you least like?

It is actually a tie.

I LOVE the Oris brand and own 2 of them, but strongly dislike these models with a passion (just my personal opinion)



and really dislike the Oris BC 4 - just strange to me

Omega...least favorite = Seamaster Bond,esspecially the 007 version! I don't like the bracelet or the hands on the standard version and the 007 on the LE version is pure cheese!

Oooooooohhhhh...I really like the rosegold chrono.....:b:b:b:b:b:b:b





Every brand makes some watches that don't fit our own personal likes....just the way it is. And almost all of my favorite brands make a watch that looks like this....black dial, white numerals or hour markers, black bezel, white numerals.....UGLY!!!!







Rolex, Omega, Invicta, Seiko, Citizen.....whom ever makes it....I can't stand it!!!! Just too freeking ugly and boring and outdated!!! Yep...and it's just my taste...& my opinion!!!!

But...I'll not pick on just Rolex....here's the rest...I even added a Tag in there I don't like...and I like a lot of what all these companies put out on the market....just don't like this look. If I had the funds...I would own one of each...but I don't...so they're all favs of mine!!!

Tag....




Seiko....sorry GMan....I just don't like the look!!!




Invicta....




Omega....




Citizen....


If you really insist Erik...pick one of the companies and call them my favorite...and the watch shown abovewill be the one I dislike the most!!!

Both of you are now on my ignore list. Andrema, I also no longer recognize your credentials as a professional watch critic.

Obviously y'all have no idea what y'all are talking about.

I have to say though...That's the 45.5 version. I have a huge problem with any watch that increases the size like that and uses the same movement, leaving that poor date drifting somewhere in the middle of the dial and uses the same size crown as the smaller version. Not a fan of that wavy type bezel either..I like the coin-edge on the 42mm. I think the oversize looks silly and bloated...42mm Planet Ocean for me

That's easy. My current favorite is the Deep Blue Brand. I own three of them including my favorite:




But I really don't like the Juggernaut:



I don't like it in any of the colors. It's just too busy. Too many knobs and dials and logos and whatnot (I especially don't like the whatnot). I like a little bit of pizazz, but not too much. Just my opinion.

BTW, I was joking. Forgot to add a smiley face. .No one should get offended by this thread. Everyone has different likes and dislikes, otherwise every watch would look the same.

Good call on your comment above.

I LOVE my AM (have the same one as you) and wear it all of the time but was really NOT a fan of the Juggernaut at all.
