Nice Reverso! Mine says hi.
Didn't mean to be overly critical. I think that combo can work (as I've seen others pull it off), but it's so hard to tell from a photo rather than seeing the combo in person. I'm also probably a bit biased because I'm a smaller wristed person (6.75"), and find it difficult to wear anything larger than ~40mm; e.g. my 42mm Omega PO occasionally feels too big for me.
I like the watch and shirt/tie combination separately, but not necessarily together. I'm still not sold on the 183 as a "suit watch"; I think the 42mm 337 or 42mm 512 (Radiomir 1950) may be a better pairing. IMHO that 183 just looks a little bit too large for my liking (with a suit).
Reverso today paired with a casual twill shirt.
Hannes Wittstein for Ventura. I got this watch as a university graduation present in the mi-1990s. I love the minimalist, modern approach to case design, and the sensuous (yet masculine) curves to the case and glass. Bespoke bridle leather watch strap in navy blue from Equus Leather. Hannes Wittstein is best known for his work with Ventura, but also designed for NOMOS Glashutte before his recent passing.
Mimo I like the way you think . Sadly I was being quite literal; it's been about 0-7 C the last couple of weeks, which is not so different from the weather we were having in December. I believe England has been enjoying temperatures in the 10-18 C range. Enough to make you want to move. I'm not Scottish; I just work here . And for the record, I think the Scottish National Party are a bit nutty to be suggesting independence, and don t seem to have a very convincing platform...
Blustery Planet Ocean day. Will spring never come to Scotland?
Frills delivers again!
Watches are not a cheap hobby. And much though I like deployants, they do tend to tie you into a manufacturers supply chain, with fewer options...
Nice one!MZ: Let us know your experiences with Camile Fournet or ABP Paris. I've heard of both, but not used their services.
