 All hail The Princess!
At an event hosted by Bovet at their boutique here in NYC. Got to play with this one for a bit: the Ottanta tourbillon in red gold, a collab between Bovet and Pininfarina. At 46mm it dwarfs my 3970J, and at MSRP $340K it also dwarfs my 3970J's price. Still, they produce some interesting complications for women in the $20s to $50s range that might be appealing to some. Finishing was very nice. Also got to try a friend's new 5980/1AR. Got to tell you, I'm not a two tone...
Lie de vin may well be my favorite Corthay color. Congrats and enjoy!
This is the ghillie formerly known as Belphegor, right? Love it. What's the color on your pair?
DerangedGoose - fantastic post. Thanks for elaborating on your preferences and the stuff in your collection. Aside from the details Dino pointed out above, I love what you did with the rocket hands. That lume shot is awesome hahah.
I would have it brushed by a trusted jeweler / watchmaker - with the attendant caveat that sometimes some Rolex Service Centers are nitpicky about servicing pieces that have been "altered" in any way. Brushing bracelets and mirror polished surfaces (side of the lugs and case?) shouldn't incur their wrath all that much. One hopes.
It's the perfect time to post this!+1 to dddrees' comment above. JLC if I was in your shoes. Get a good price for it and enjoy it.The SD4000 will be around if you want it in the future - with more discounts and mint pre-loved options available too.
And tell me more about the Shogun.
^^^ A far more interesting and engaging response, for me. I am not aware of any price limits on timepieces posted here, or anywhere. I am interested in what interests you. Far be it from this thread to become just about the positives and none of the negatives - we certainly don't keep our mouths shut about stuff we don't like. But it is the tone of some of your posts and the way you - perhaps playfully - engage with some of us that I personally found off-putting. Tell us...
Why don't you try this before going on yet another extended diatribe about features, brands and assorted phenomena that you passionately detest - posts that only serve to make many of us think you're some wanna-be who simply wants to show off your supposed knowledge of fine detail and horology?Post watches you actually own and love. On your wrist. Tell us about your collection parameters, and why.I'm trying to help. Really.
