Mimo, did you say "big watch"? From our "Red Bar Crew" gathering last night, the Unicum (love that name for some reason) from U-Boat in titanium and bronze. At 53mm it is slightly bigger than my 36mm ref 3970J... If you ask me this Patek Travel Time Aquanaut ref 5164A is more my cup of tea... Love the little Tiffany stamp on it too...
Watch geek lunches are awesome.
Boom! Dino944's BLNR has been revealed! Congrats, brother! This little date-only watch, on the table at my weekly lunch date with watch enthusiast friends.
Hahahah! Nice pic Stitchmeister!
The VC split seconds chrono ultra thin is fantastic. In platinum and a LE of 10, I fear it is Unobtainum for me. The new Lange Datograph with a perp cal seems more like my style, but at around USD135,000 it's still a bit of a spend. I also feel like I've reached a point of contentment (wow!) with my two 3970s, and that I would have to think long and hard about getting another timepiece in the six figure price range if I have to let one of my beloved 3970s go. Let BOTH...
 I fooking love the DeepSea! But, I also have a ridiculously overengineered physique and a penchant for pushing my endeavors to the extreme.  So, what it stands for resonates with me.  Hahahahah.  Is it foolish to design a watch that can withstand those kinds of depths?  Probably.  Is it foolish to put my body through insane amounts of pain at 4:30am five days a week when I work a desk job?  Probably.  Love it all anyway. Also, the D-Blue has the most amazing dial.  As...
Off topic for TWAT, sorry. Here are my two "keeper" fountain pens. The one at the bottom is the Ascending Dragon model by Nakaya. The lacquer is red Urushi, and with time and use it gradually makes way for the dragon painted underneath to become more prominent. Even the converter inside is a small work of art, cherry blossoms rendered via the Maki-E approach. The one at the top is the White Knight in palladium and black Chinese lacquer by ST Dupont. It's pretty eye...
 Very awesome.  I used to religiously keep a personal journal, and send handwritten notes to friends and family and business associates.  About a decade ago I shifted more to the electronic versions of such, and about three months ago I started getting into handwritten notes again.  Even keeping a personal journal and such.  My delusion is that one day my daughters will read through the drivel their father wrote and get to know him a bit better (and maybe feel worse about...
 Fantastic write-up and pic, Stitchy! Congrats again!
TheWraith!Off topic somewhat: is that your daily writer pen? Do you still write by hand much? I got deep into fine writing instruments late last year (still sticking true to my "no purchases for 2015" resolution - the pens that arrived recently were ordered late last year!) and boy, some of them sport a similar kind of aesthetic and workmanship that underpin my love for mechanical timepieces.
