I quite like my Philip IIs.
Today I strapped on that watch that mimo detests, on a rubber strap that Dino dislikes. I don't know why I own this watch, it's so ugly and commonplace.
I've heard word from another friend that the SD4000 was indeed on display at the Wynn, when he visited about two weeks ago. AD said it was the first (and at that time, only) SD4000 issued in the US.My question to him was - and I suppose it might have occurred to you too, zippyh - what the hell is that supposedly perfect, presumably so-in-demand watch that's so incredibly desirable that grey dealers are offering it for $1,000+ over MSRP at TRF - doing sitting at the window...

 I had to look up what "poncified" means! Ditto re: Kaplan's awesome pics.  Good job, and great pieces!

New book. Spot the typo TWAT.
