Seems to summarize my entire approach to this whole watch addiction thing Yeah, not sure if I $20,000 love it either. Have only tried it on briefly, but I'm trying to rectify that. Not sure when or if I'll ever have the chance to try on the platinum version without ordering it, not something my AD has in store I imagine. Of course, at the pricepoint of the platinum, the competition is even fiercer.I'm with you, thin watches 37-40mm is a sweet spot for so many occasions....
Not really. I work in a casual techy environment, and even as a consultant they expect to get a creative/geeky looking guy, even tucking my shirt is over the top But I do find my smaller and thinner watches extremely work -and everyday-friendly, more and more. The MUT Moon gets a lot of use in the summer, just as perfect with jeans/chinos as a with a suit. My watches (and their owner) tend to thicken out a bit in the dark months (which to be fair, are 9 out of 12 in my...
I would choose my old 16610 date Submariner. For looks and for function. If I had to choose a cercamic Sub, not sure. I really, really like the one frills got on. Very handsome, and now with a fantastic bracelet. Like with every other watch: try them on. One of them will smile to you
I think aesthetics make up most of the difference. The date window in itself creates an asymmetry of course. But plenty of folks like the Sea-Dweller even if they would choose the no-date Sub over the date Sub. So I guess the cyclops is an issue? The cyclops is a pretty low tech solution to a practical problem, and definitely not particularly decorative.Myself I quite like a cyclops on my Oyster I find it an integral part of the Rolex DNA, that awkward little blob is what...
I'm happy for you, no frills! The no-date is a no-brainer But hey, I kinda like Subs, didya know? Myself, apart from honeymooning the AP ROC, I've been obsessing over the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionnelle Small Seconds lately. Yes, I read Hodinkee, and yes, I am easily influenced. Super hot in rose gold, and stealthily cool in platinum. I have been wondering if one of these could take the place of my JLC MC chrono (and maybe MUT Moon) Which is crazy,...
I'll take that badge of honor and wear it proudly! Thanks guys You need a nice place to stash your watches when there is no more room left on your arms, you know?
Thanks, stich! I bought two AP plaques when a local AD closed shop a couple of years ago. Not sure about the vintage, I'm guessing 70s. Picked up a Patek dealer sign and a small Omega Speedmaster thingy as well.I also have a small Rolex altar And other trinkets ...Sorry about the insane sizes of these pictures. Something up with my Photobucket ...
Today's choice. Plexi is sexi.
I thought I heard someone call my name? Thanks for the many kind words gentlemen! (Still only cellphone pic, now where did I last put my DSLR?)
I had hoped to find the time for a long unboxing with a heap of high quality pics, but I never actually manage to get the pictures taken. So: here is my AP ROC in rose gold Today was dark and rainy, but this golden sun on my wrist cheered me up considerably. I had a new rubber strap from AP installed today, the same found on the City of Sails edition. The brown leather strap was ok, but a shorter rubber strap made it much more comfortable. The butterlly clasp is totally...
