There's this place in London called bubbledogs.
What I wouldn't give for an original 1969 Seiko Astron.
Now that I live in London...    
5711 all the way.   In my opinion, it's the one watch that is truly unique, yet never out of place. It's the pinnacle of understated (sporty) opulence. Though I do think it is a bit overpriced for a steel watch (as if the precious metal content of any gold/platinum watch actually influenced the price in a truly proportional manner...).   But at some point, one is paying as much for exclusivity as one is for quality and design.   Which is why I shall happily content...
 In spite of all the fabulous things Patek has done, I think my favorite overall (in terms of what would integrate with my own life) would probably the standard blue dial Nautilus date. But then, I'm a younger guy and self-employed. So there's little sense in my having much invested in thoroughbred dress watches. I will have a Nautilus at some point. Preferably one as old as dirt and scratched to high heaven, but keeping flawless time and quite waterproof. How about yourself?
What do people think of typographic prints in fashion?   Burberry made a brief splash earlier this year when they did a ton of Prorsum pieces in "book cover" typographic prints.   A few examples:           It was a bit of a stretch for the brand, but seemed a unique and inspired direction.

And then suddenly, without warning...   Naughty Nautilus brothers...       Hello London limited edition...     A little something for the missus?       Jewel encrusted Rolex? Or perhaps....     When tracking your own star just isn't enough...         Half a millennium ago, all the ballers had one.   Because GMTs are for wusses...   Was your PP finished on this bench?   Oh yes, take it off...   And from...
Gems encrusted tool watch... The Dude does not abide.
