Some may call me crazy, but I did it.
The Tudor FXD is in, the GS Snowflake (owned for about 4 years) went out.Just to be a sure, which was in and which was out?
Exactly! The snowflake is what I would consider a “middle ground” between casual and dressy but as time went on, my outfits for work have gotten more casual… so I’m finding it difficult to wear the GS on a daily basis.This is why it wasn't really crazy to do the trade. Why have something sitting and collecting dust? Enjoy it!
While taking a stepback and considering my collection, I realised that I have my “dress watch” section covered. (Lange Saxonia, VC 1942), that made me feel that the collection could do with a nice modern diver that’s a little different.I would have hung on to the GS like grim death. But that’s me rather than you. If you are happier with the Tudor then you made the right move.
Thanks! Objectively speaking I do think the GS might be a nicer watch.Hmmm, personally I think the GS is a more special watch than the Tudor, but it's not about pleasing me. If you're happy with the trade, that's what matters.

I thought about it long and hard… but I had my steel/titanium dress watch covered with this. I found them a little too “similar” in a broad sense so couldn’t justify keeping both.My gosh those are two beautiful watches. Shame you couldn’t have kept both as they are polar opposites but the FXD is a killer piece so I hope you enjoy it!!! . Bottom line is this thread tells me you have good taste
Interesting, that’s a large difference!It does, the FXD L to L is 52 when it's 47 on the 39 pelagos. That's a very significant difference. I too do think the FXD wears too large for me.
