Any Diesel fans?

Hello everyone,

I'm a huge fan of Diesel watches, but unfortunately I wasn't able to find a thread about this brand. However, does anyone know any public retailers besides department stores that specifically carry the "Mr. Daddy 2.0" and at the same time are reputable? Does not necessarily have to be in SoCal either.

Also, if anyone can direct me to a thread that already exists for this specific Diesel watch...I would really appreciate it!

Thanks guys!

If poor vision is a legit concern/problem, the small dials on that think aren't going to make matters any better, even though the watch itself is large overall.

I ran into exactly that issue with the Montblanc Nicky R. I could make out the hands on the main dial. Could sort of see the numbers on the main dial. Could tell the sub-dials indicators in the lower half of the watch were there, but could not see what they indicated, despite knowing what they are there to do. Couldn't read the date either, but I could tell whether it was day or night as per the watch.



All the best.

I guess this is the one I am thinking of. Not a bad looking watch actually. I know the ones your referring to with smaller sections jammed into one big watch...

I can see how the big date aspect is helpful to folks like me who have faltering vision. Over the past lustrum, I've come to "get over" the idea of using my watches to know the date because except for the ones that have a "big date," I can barely see the date aperture, much less the date displayed in it. LOL

That said, the specific model you pictured isn't visually appealing enough to me that I'd buy it for its date legibility, but other persons may feel differently, and that's fine. De gustibus non disputandum est....

All the best.

Well I drive my X5d sporting a gold Diesel watch and a dress shirt unbuttoned to show my hairy chest.

So I think needless to say, I approve wearing and driving diesel.


BTW, does you wife know your boyfriend's name is also Diesel?

This type of behavior is more suited to corvette, just need a gold chain also. I know what watch you wear and that chest hair isn't a strong suit!
