by Felix Scholz "Heritage reissues are hot and don’t seem to be cooling off any time soon. But as more and more brands jump on the retro train, the ratio of filler to thriller is becoming increasingly unbalanced. So we’ve put together some of the all-time greats — five cracking examples of retro done right."

That GS is my dress watch of choice. If I ever do a dress watch.

Saw the title and first thing that popped into my mind was "Legend Diver." For once, I wasn't wrong (tho I usualy am) when predicting what ends up on these things.

Frankly, I think they could make the list a little bit longer, as there are a few watches that could easily qualify for, say, a top 10. For one, yet another Longines - the Heritage Conquest. 35mm, domed hesalite... And this year's reissue of the Seiko 62MAS.

I have 4 reissues. One of which was the 57 Speedmaster Replica (yeah, they actually called it that), released in 97 and re-re-issued per the article. The Certina was an LE (no longer in production). Both Tudors can still be had.
