As luck would have it, I managed to finally handle the new BLNR GMT-Master II during a recent work trip in Bangkok.
I must say, I’m thoroughly smitten. The blue may look outstanding now, but under dim lighting, the bezel looks almost entirely black. I love details like this. It’s like looking at a different watch each time.
Looks like I caught the Rolex bug again!
A behind the scenes look at what goes on when you send your IWC in for servicing.
I find that most buyers are too caught up with wrist sizes and overlook their height and general build when considering if a watch is the “right size” for them.
The watch is not just strapped to your wrist, it is strapped on to you. Therefore, wrist size, though a contributing factor, should not be the sole factor for consideration.
When you buy a t-shirt or shirt, not only do you make sure it fits properly (not too tight or loose), but you also check to see if the sleeves are of the right length or if it sits too low and is too long. In other words, you make sure it fits in relative to everything else.
So why not watches too?
Btw, check out my review of the PAM 372 on aBlogtoWatch.
