And on a lighter note - from yesterday morning when my pusher cap was still present - here's the wrist situation yesterday. Quite like the VCA cuff links paired with the black strap 3970P. /****** Apparently I live on Instagram too - mainly timepieces, shoes, attire and the occasional cheeseburger. @no_frills_vc. ******/
So I took off my 3970P and guess what? One of the pusher caps got unscrewed and was gone. Hahaha! What is this low quality shoddy work from this watchmaker anyway?!? Seriously speaking - I actually laughed it off and will take it to Patek tomorrow, easy replacement. I feel fortunate that I reacted this way: truth be told, you can talk a tough game but once something happens to a beloved possession then let's see how you'll react. But I chuckled and shrugged it off...
Thanks RogerP! PCK1 - model 524 on the Riva last, material SOF and color 606! /****** Apparently I live on Instagram too - mainly timepieces, shoes, attire and the occasional cheeseburger. @no_frills_vc. ******/
Galways in midnight blue and navy suede. Got them from Leffot./****** Apparently I live on Instagram too - mainly timepieces, shoes, attire and the occasional cheeseburger. @no_frills_vc. ******/
 Was it the Borg that said "resistance is futile"? 
 Thank you! Very kind.  Yes, I'd like to think I'm "adventurous" but I still want to keep designs and color relatively low key ("understated").  Pateks don't scream "LOOK AT ME" either.  But they do elicit that growing sense of wonder if you know what you're looking at.
Galways in mid-shine! /****** Apparently I live on Instagram too - mainly timepieces, shoes, attire and the occasional cheeseburger. @no_frills_vc. ******/
 I think this depends on the watch.  And the wife.  And the husband. But I've had no problems or complaints when I went out with my wife and she wore my 3970 in yellow gold and I wore my 3970 in platinum. Guess that doesn't qualify for "identical" since the metals are different...
The difference between brown and plum is subtle, depending on the lighting. I think you'd need to view both side by side in person, and relatively bright outdoor lighting, to be able to tell them apart right away. Brown on the left, plum on the right - indoor lighting at Leffot: Mine in brown, pic taken on a cloudy morning: /****** Apparently I live on Instagram too - mainly timepieces, shoes, attire and the occasional cheeseburger. @no_frills_vc. ******/
 Recent SF thread on that same product/topic... http://www.styleforum.net/t/369326/hermes-sac-a-depeche-whats-the-lowdown My problem with a splurge on bags I will use for travel is that there will inevitably come that day when I am in some airport restroom and I will have to place that damn thing on the floor and have it make contact with pee from other creatures.  And do I really want to do that to a sac a depeche?  I understand, there are grey areas here since the soles...
