Normally I would agree that a croc is too dressy for a tool watch (I very rarely used the one that came with my Luminor), but for some reason it's still my preferred look for the Speedy. Not really sure why...Apropos something entirely different, is anybody looking for an [[SPOILER]]
I'm not particularly attracted to chronos, but if I should ever get one, the (plexi) Speedy would be my first choice. As for straps, I think it looks best like so: - though this looks pretty good too:
Will do, when I get the chance.It looks like the third has gotten even worse reviews than the second, and that one was one of the worst films I've seen in recent years. Actually, as much as I like Liam N, I found the first Taken highly overrated, but lately I've been thinking about giving it a second chance.(I'll probably be in the minority on this, but I was much better entertained by Tom C's Jack Reacher...)
^ I would like to check out A Walk Among The Tombstones, but after seeing Taken 2 (1/5) I must admit that I have no desire to see the 3rd. Very sweet, but didn't grab me as much as I had hoped. 3/5 Really like this. 4/5
Surely you can't be serious?Slightly related, it's fun to see Duchovny as a FBI agent in drag in Twin Peaks, a couple of years before The X-files.
Cool cops and robbers yarn. Not as awesome as Le Samouraï (5/5), but still worth a look. Having Catherine Deneuve dress up as a nurse is just plain sadistic. 4/5
Those look great, Cleav!
^ I didn't even think there could be a difference in how they wear - less grippy sounds good I guess? I was purely thinking of aesthetics, as to me the matte looks noticeably worse than the polished (I do greatly prefer the all brushed bracelet though). Somehow, the polished clasp looks like a natural continuation of the stamped clasp I'm used to, while the bead blasted one kinda looks cheap to me - a little like 'silver' painted plastic, IYKWIM. My local AD described it...
On a more serious note, how do you like the matte clasp innards compared to the polished ones on the Datejust II?
I know, though I've only been there once, last time I was in your neck of the woods some 3 years ago.
