 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...

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.

 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...
 I cannot question your claimed ancestry.  But yes, Thor was strangely hairless from the neck down. T'was truly mysterious to me as to why my wife insisted on seeing the sequel, when clearly she also didn't mind Henry Cavill's rather hairy rendition of Superman in the recent "Man of Steel" movie.  Perhaps my bride is an equal opportunity "desirer" of men with muscular chests.  Not Yoda indeed.   I did not find anything introduced at SIHH interesting.  Does that make me...
 Nuke, verily this is a dangerous path you are treading.  Dino held my hand as I traversed this path as well.  Before you know it you may end up preferring and purchasing Hermes products for your significant other and/or yourself.  'Tis yet another world, closely associated with our own obsession with fine timepieces, that your wallet may wish you not to enter. Speaking Biblical today.  Or is it Norse?  Like Thor?
wurger I have the opposite experience. Might just be different uppers but my StC chukkas have required zero break in time and may well be the most comfortable pair I have aside from my Corthay Arcas./****** Apparently I live on Instagram too - mainly timepieces, shoes, attire and the occasional cheeseburger. @no_frills_vc. ******/
Brown on gold / opaline white dial works well IMHO. /****** Apparently I live on Instagram too - mainly timepieces, shoes, attire and the occasional cheeseburger. @no_frills_vc. ******/
