I was shopping for a watch for my wife's birthday and have just discovered that any woman's watch is either the right size and quartz or massively oversized . Are there any horologically significant watches in smaller sizes? I recognize that there isn't much room, but if they can fit 300+ parts in a men's watch to tell the rotation of the planets, they can just make a simple 3-hand in a very small size.
It is the classic Beaufort in Olive Sylkoil - Size 40. Really perfect for someone who is a size 42 or even 44. Really in great shape and perfect for the upcoming spring (if it ever arrives). Including some very crappy iPhone pics, but it is such a staple, you know what it looks like. $170 including shipping CONUS. See my sig for trades I am looking for.
I fully agree with you - I think Cartier is trying hard, too hard. JLC had one interesting watch, but from a technical perspective, not an aesthetic one. And the rest were just mediocre. Overall a pretty poor showing.As an aside - I was just looking at the article on Julien Coudray on Monochrome right now. I don't know much about Fabien Lamarche except that he subcontracted for other brands for a while, but nice looking stuff.
Thanks for the collection of links. Initial thoughts...Cartier came out heavy with a ton of new designs:I dislike the skeletonized Tanks - it is hard to see the time, and I think this matters a lot to me. Perhaps the contrast between arms and background is greater than what is shown in the picture.Rotonde Day and Night is the most interesting, but the moonphase at the bottom feels too modern versus the top - sort of Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde approachCalibre Diver - this one is ...
I think Dunhill did an exotic hiking boot as well:
Gilt has OB right now, and often (I also have a set of red setters NIB if you are interested).
So far, my MeUndies have held up well. Definitely superior to the CKs and Uniqlos I was wearing before. Now looking at undershirts and debating between Underfit, Tommy John, and several others. Main criteria are super-fitted, super-thin, and deep V so that it doesn't show at the neck. Bonus points for it being slim enough at the neck and arms not to create lines and available in natural colors. Will report back.
Over $500 to get free international shipping I think. Anyone in NYC want to split an order? I am in williamsburg.
At $100k+ Patek and others should offer left-handed watches with the pushers on the other side.
From Google Translate, it seems to indicate he had the jacket tailored to get that fitted look? (Definitely thinking about one, but just wanted to confirm)
