From where I can buy one? I was away from forum since a long time, but was reading as a guest. This watch made me login and ask the details of it.

I am not able to find it online. This watch is love at first sight.

Thanks!

Thanks. Yes, the quality was a pleasant surprise, and I agree that Timex has some elegant designs, a personal favorite is one of their Pilots watch.
My next watch in the wish list is something that will go well with a nato Martini or Gulf racing strap.

Got the Suunto Ambit3 peak yesterday.

Really wanted to buy the Garmin Fenix3 but it is priced outrageously in India. Getting bit of a buyers remorse for not buying Suunto Traverse which was my choice right until the last minute and then in a huff bought the peak.

Default Another Milestone in Life !

I am completing 2 years with my present project and couple of clients decided to gift me my dream watch, somehow things took place in the blink of an eye, I am yet to believe my eyes and digest what I have on my wrist ! I must say whatever pictures I have seen online and what I have tried to click, its no way close to how amazing this little thing is in real !!

Its a Rolex, Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 (Ivory Pyramid Dial Stainless Steel and 18K Yellow Gold). Ethos gave a very good deal. Certain things come in life earlier than you imagine. Just work hard and things will come your way

Was considering the below Seiko Presage dress watches. I'm yet to see them in the flesh,but they look beautiful in the pics. Thing which caught my attention was the 41 hr power reserve, considering the other automatic Tissot which i have has to be wound every morning to set the time. The only downer on the Seiko perhaps is lack of sapphire crystal!

These are the Seiko Cocktail Time watches. Don't worry about the lack of sapphire crystal, the proprietary Hardlex crystal that Seiko uses is of very good quality, and will serve you well. Interestingly, the Cocktail Time range in the USA is available for a substantially lesser price, so if you have anyone coming down from the USA, you could perhaps consider buying the piece there. I love the watch as well, especially the gorgeous blue variant. Swap out the bracelet for a nice black crocodile leather strap, and the watch just transforms into something else. The exhibition case back of these mechanical watches never fail to intrigue and amaze me.

Nice collection! The SARB035 is a gorgeous watch, bearing the essence of the Grand Seiko range but for a lot less! I just purchased the SARB033 (the black dial variant of the one you have), and this beauty is expected towards the end of this month, being carried by a friend from the USA. I had a tough time deciding between the 035 and 033, and finally settled for the black dial version for its slightly more versatile nature. How is your experience with the SARB035, in terms of wrist comfort and overall aesthetics? Have you had it for long?

Congrats for your new watch.

My watch is less than 2 months old. I too had a tough time deciding between SARB033 and SARB035. In the end I chose SARB035 because it looked more classy to me. It's very comfortable on the wrist. I am using it with the bracelet that comes with the watch which is of very nice quality. Finding it difficult to find appropriate strap for my watch. It should be easier for your watch.

The lines, curves, surface (polished in few areas and matt in others) are all very top quality and sync with each other very well.

Congrats Shaju, though I am an Omega fan (have a Seamaster) I must say the Oyster, one of my fav models from Rolex, looks really grand!

I am now aiming for a Omega Speedmaster & a Rolex Submariner.

They are the only exclusive brand showroom available in Bangalore that too in UB City. I was surprised to see the choice of dials and straps in each size. I don't think a Jewellery or multi brand shop will have these many collections. Mine is manufactured in August 2017.

Thanks. I never tried an Omega but I love some of their designs. Submariner is a world of it's own. Hope to own it one day

I assume they are the same company as this. https://www.ethoswatches.com/

I ran into this website while looking for a service agent for Rolex. I wondered if they are selling authentic stuff because there are so many fakes around.

Edit: they must be authentic. The have 2 boutiques, one each in Delhi and Bangalore. Nothing in Mumbai. Oh well!

Thank you. Bought mine on CreationWatches.com. They unlisted my watch but they have another monster.

If you are keen on monster, grab one as soon as you find one.
