  1. I'm pretty sure the "I get showered with compliments everyday when I wear this watch" comments are completely exaggerating but it definitely does get noticed. This is the first watch I've owned where I've had several coworkers actually comment on or ask about my watch.

  2. This is more handsome yet considerably cheaper than the similar looking Tudor chronograph. The perfect size now for a chrono too. Hamilton are definitely growing in their rankings for me as of late with this, the khaki field mechanical, PSR and classic Ventura as well. Yet all still relatively affordable.

  3. Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your hometown
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
    Tired of lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch the rain
    You are young and life is long, and there is time to kill today
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
    And you run, and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again
    The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death
    Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say
    Home, home again
    I like to be here when I can
    And when I come home cold and tired
    It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
    Far away across the field
    The tolling of the iron bell
    Calls the faithful to their knees
    To hear the softly spoken magic spells

  4. I Believe Buren also joined the ‘intra-matic’ pact, besides Hamilton and Heuer. Buren actually made this exact design back in the days as well

  5. You should take a look at the Marloe range out of Perth Scotland. The chronographs are in the £975 range and they are stunning.

  6. What a pleasant surprise seeing the watch you're wearing being reviewed on Watchfinder! makes you appreciate it even more. Great video as always!
    I've got the leather strap version, first mechanical watch and I'm loving it. I was afraid it would be too big for my small 15.9cm wrist (although my wrist is kinda flat, which helps), but even with its thickness and big lugs, the watch fits surprisingly well. Love the panda color and the classic racing watch look.

  7. Almost pulled the trigger getting this but ended up with an Alpinist instead. It is still on my list though

  8. Can you show us the movments when watches have no „window“ at the back side? You as watches-professionell could easyly open for all.

  9. That is a beautiful watch. But that style bracelet always looks feminine to me. It would probably look great in any color leather

  10. I had a quick look around your site and i have an idea or two for a review:
    What to buy if you have a 1000$ and you don't like round watches?
    The watches (all from your shop):
    – Maurice Lacroix Pontos Gents PT6217-SS001-330
    – Baume et Mercier Hampton for men M0A08345
    – Omega Seamaster Polaris 2540.50.00
    Or perhaps a comparison between Rado Integral R20759759 and Raymond Weil Shine 1500-ST2-70381, they're at the same price point, have a common theme and yet are executed completely different.
    I have no problems with round watches just to be clear 🙂
    In any case keep doing these great videos!

  11. I love how you always bring these watches to life, telling their story in an engaging way that makes you really appreciate the horology behind them.

  12. I've gotten more complements on my Hamilton Intra-Matic than any other watch I wear. It's just an all around great watch.

  13. Thinking after watching this, if I should also start making Hamilton watches video reviews on my watches channel as well. Their design looks stunning

  14. Normally i am not fan of Chronograph but man in Silver dial and black belt this watch looks stunning and made me fall in love with it. Ok i am gonna buy this watch.

  15. I couldn’t imagine not subscribing to this channel to the tune of 60% of people watching – this is the single best watch channel on YouTube by a long shot.

  16. I have the blue version of this watch – one of my favourites. Especially as they are often discounted, making them brilliant VFM. I preferred this to my Speedy – which I sold recently…..

  17. I know they don’t appreciate but I have a strange fascination with Graham swordfish watches

  18. Finally! I love mine. I have the blue variant. I have three different straps for it. And if it was my only watch, I've set this thing up to fit almost any occasion. Thank you so much for finally covering this. I absolutely believe that this watch, in at least one of its iterations will be sought after for years to come.
