Like my dad, I don’t really collect watches. I’ve ended up with some that I really like, pieces that thump me in the chest, but they’re all weird. There’s the Omega De Ville Chronograph ref. 146.017, with its oddball nine o’clock date window, and the BWC with its gorgeous asymmetric sub-dials and Landeron 1340 caliber inside.
It was only recently, however, that my dad and I both ended up with a Futurematic.
