Any thoughts on Maurice LaCroix? Just curious...had picked this one up on the whim while window shopping on the streets of Interlaken during the Swiss holiday a few years back. Didn't know much about watches then (and, even now!), but it just felt nice.

Looks nice! Brand will get a lot of hate on here, but they make some decent pieces. I’d put them in a similar class as Frederique Constant or Mido (slightly below Oris and Longines). I’ve been tempted by their blue dial Aikon offering several times to scratch the RO itch, but haven’t pulled the trigger.

I owned one of these before. Great specs and beautiful dial, but had to get rid of it. One day a guy called out from afar “sweet AP” bro and pointed to one on his wrist. I smiled and just walked the other way to avoid the awkward conversation… that’s when I knew I couldn’t do it

They have some really nice, and reasonably priced dress watches. Simple, clean and classic.

Think that watch is sharp. The m on the strap is weird but you could always switch straps.

Is it enough notice to schedule some PTO for next Monday?

I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
