    Ever been to a Gordon Ramsey restaurant? He does a pretty good job with all of those. Cartier is in the same boat as HW, mate (ie: Jewellery and Watchmaking). Only diffirence is that Cartier has been at it for longer.

      So it will be an abomination for you to buy a watch just because you like it? It has to tick all boxes and be able to collect the "oohs" and "ahhs" at the Baselworld cafeteria? Interesting.

          A couple In The Wild shots for the Big Date Rose Gold and the Big Date White Gold.

            Dress watch I would probably use the Midnight retrograde seconds.
            For example MIDARS42WW001
            Also wouldn't mind trying out the more simple versions of their Ocean Chronograph on sport watch events.
            Other ones are too "jewelry" for my taste.

            Reps would be nice, just because their resell value is terrible so I wouldn't spend gen money to have it rotate in collection.

            With that said, you will unlikely find good reps in the short run.
            Factories care about volume before starting a new model.
            If you're having this much difficulty convincing such a small group of enthusiasts to share your passion, there is going to be even more trouble selling it to the average joe in China.

            Good luck in your pursuit.

              I'd get a good rep of that.

                  you asking why on the same price range i would not buy this but not that. And patek is not the second known watch after Rolex, that spot is for omega and friends.
                  A man with a watch knows what time it is. A man with two watches is never sure !

                    Believe me, I didn't think it would be this intense discussing Harry Winston in the replica community. Boy do they like their standard choices.

                    oooh. I didn't think about the retrograde seconds. It is even more stunning, adding an interesting element to the dial.

                    Never really been into sports watches but if I ever we're, I'd definitely pick the Ocean line over a... Submariner or Daytona for example. It is more interesting. It is less cliche. The only comp would be the Calibre De Cartier.

                    A couple questions, mate. Were you ever aware of HARRY WINSTON timepieces, or had you never known The HW made watches? Also, you only mentioned the Ocean & Midnight. Do you fancy the Premier line, like the one worn by the Prime Minister of Pakistan? I prefer the simplicity of the Midnight, but I think it handsome as well.

                      Keyblue Doing research on the HARRY WINSTON Ocean line and I never gave sports watches a look. But this... I would sport this during a ski holiday or the summer.
