My 25th birthday is Sunday, and I wanted to celebrate a quarter of a century down with a nice watch, one that’s a little step above my Seiko, so I went shopping around.

I was most impressed with Bromberg in Birmingham, an extremely friendly environment with helpful staff. They had a splendid selection including these fine Tag Heuers. No Seikos or Omegas though.

I was immediately taken by this Formula 1 Gulf and the Aquaracer next to it. Perhaps because Senna was pictured next to it, but I held it in my hands and was extremely impressed with the quality and feel.

I was nearly suckered into a Shinola as well, with the prospect of an American-made watch being very interesting. But after doing some research I found it’s mostly all advertising jargon.

Please enjoy my findings while I mull things over.
