 Thanks, Cleav.  This one's a keeper for me.  Now, to get some pictures of it with a cocktail or two.
So, a little present for myself arrived from Germany today, and I cannot stop looking at my wrist:       I think I may have found my first dress watch that I enjoy wearing, which is a good thing since I'm in a suit a few times a week.  In other news, it's time to sell off the Hamilton Intramatic that never found a place in my rotation.  Purchased it in December, but only wore it a few times because it just wasn't what I was looking for.
 I was searching through fabrics yesterday and was surprised to see the number of fabrics that are out of stock.  I ended up not ordering anything as everything I liked was out of stock.  @luxire is there a big restock coming?
 I've purchased three ties from Shibumi.  My recollection is it usually takes 1 - 2 weeks for delivery.  Beautiful ties.
 Yeah, I agree with all the comments and the rationale for going darker.  Makes complete sense to me, but I do not think 1289 is the one.  It is very ink blue in color and has a purplish tint indoors. It looks fine in direct sunlight, but I just looked at it again indoors and all I can see is purple.  I'd be all over something a little darker, but you're right 1289 is very saturated.
 Are you suggesting 1289? Here is the look that inspired this purchase: 
   I thought about 1289 for the reason it is a little darker.  My only hesitation is that it seems to have a purplish tint at times, depending on the light.  I've never been a big fan of smoked mother of pearl, but the brown mother of pearl does not look bad.  Is there a reason to strongly consider smoked MOP here? I'm thinking of experimenting with the no shoulder padding option for this one?  Any words of warning?
Groundhog Day participants, I'm about to pull the trigger on a blue Spring/Summer weight jacket from KW.  I'm looking for something sufficiently lighter than a navy blazer to distinguish it from my blazer, but dark enough to have some versatility and be suitable for casual and office settings.  I'm strongly leaning towards TRE1291 from the Drago Hopsack book below, but wanted to throw it out here for comments before pulling the trigger.  All the swatches are a lightweight...
 Remember, the idea is to mess with Noodles and continue the Groundhog Day theme.  Hence, my correction to your post.
I thought long and hard about a 556I but ultimately wanted a more traditional dive watch.  Great watch, though.
