Thinking about getting a BB58 but afraid I will get tired of gilt details after a while. What has been your experience with this watch?

Agree with others the gilt becomes part of its charm with repeated wearing and since it is small I don't think it ever comes off as too flashy.

I have a non BB58 gilt watch and I love it. I don’t get tired of gilt, but do get the same “shiny new objects” affection where I constantly want something new.
I think the gilt in a SS case is significantly more versatile than gold watches (for my skin tone at least) as it is just a bit of flair on a typical black faced dive watch.

I have another diver with a black dial and gilt details, it’s my favorite and most worn watch. It’s less contrasts than white on black so it tends to be more subtle despite the gold.

Gilt details?

The BB58 is a great piece, my most worn over the last year. The gilt is a detail that is subtle but I love. Some will not like it but from what I’ve seen most people either hate it right away or they love it. Go for it, worse case you can sell it for close to MSRP anyway

My request to all higher authority of TCS. Please plan for a salary correction strategy for those who are under paid. I am a BPS associate from past 4 years in TCS.

Mobilization

Currently in a Mob, and have been doing completely night shift for 7 month. The command team just announced they would break up the shift again randomly, and send people from night shift to day shift. Is it normal? My life has already used to the grave yard job. If I was made the change, my whole sleeping schedule is messed up badly… Is anyway way I can prevent this from happening? Thanks

Suggestions for a first “more expensive” everyday watch? Budget <$3.5K

Hello to all collectors, investors, & watch geeks of this bowl. First time posting, but have been reading a ton of discussion and have really enjoyed it. Would love for more people to post pictures of their collection so hoping to start a trend! What’s your favorite watch you’ve purchased/received? Mine has to be the Panerai but that’s mostly sentimental reasons.
