Black Bay 36 is using the ETA movement, thus 38hours of power reserve.

Pick one:

Daytona 116520 black (AN series, used)
GMT root beer half gold (BNIB)
GMT Pepsi steel (BNIB)

All almost same price.

Which one will you pick using heart/emotion?

Which one will you pick using head/logic?

Daytona, mainly is because of the lower production in steel and the damn long waiting list.

It's more than just the winding mechanism, the efficiency of the escapement plays a role too.

Efficient escapement? do u mean inefficient escapement use more energy but the watch main spring is design to hold x hours. Care to explain the role?

Even if escapement is efficient, main spring not wind up. How does escapement run?

After some serious thought today, am so leaning towards 116520, as I feel the GMT coloured bezels are kind of silly now. Hankering after the aluminium coloured inserts of a bygone era.

Used to own 116520 black but sold liao. Should I get the white now to complement these cousins?

If u can ensure it getting up to 70hr b4 u put away for 3days great.
If I not moving much can only say up to 38hrs then having 70hrs not useful. It would be useful if it has a power res indicator
