Yes, you've got a point about the size of the seconds hand dial. But if I am going to get a dual time zone watch then I cannot find one which I like better than the Lange. As I say, it's just the price that is slowing me down, both the outlay and the prospect of having something on my wrist worth more than my car. I'm sure I'll get over it though!
Do you mean the JLC Squadra Hometime? I like the look of it but it's almost 15mm thick (the Lange is a shade under 10mm) and feels very clunky on the wrist.
I'm thinking of getting a Lange & Sohne Saxonia Dualtime, either in due course new or pre-owned (if available): http://www.thewatchsource.co.uk/images/watches/385026.jpg I love the look and the feel on the wrist, it's a good size for me and seems to be a very elegant way to show a dual time zone. The downside is the cost (£22K retail in London). Any thoughts?
They'll definitely be party shoes - worn with something like dark grey velvet trousers and a dark navy peak lapel one button jacket. The shoes are midnight blue verging on black so hopefully won't be too gangsterish.
Cleverley are making me a pair of stingray wholecuts at the moment and I'm about an 11.5 UK size.
Just bought a suit length of this via my tailor (Meyer & Mortimer): http://www.themerchantfox.co.uk/prod/232/london-lounge/london-lounge-char-blue-windowpane Horribly expensive but (a) can't find a heavyweight blue flannel that touches it and (b) price is due to go up on 1 April. Interestingly, Fox didn't give the tailor a discount. I'll have it made into a DB suit over the late summer ready for late autumn.
A Sinn in the sun:
Have just ordered a pair of wholecuts in midnight blue stingray from Cleverley Adam told me they don't like to include the pearl - I thought he said it was difficult to cut through but I don't quite understand why this would be an issue. Anyway, I agree with the view expressed above that it would look tacky.I intend to wear the shoes in exactly the context described below:Winot
Yes, I realise that horses don't have naturally cross-hatched behinds! Apparently Horween will add cross-hatching to any cordovan you want, although it can take up to a year. Cleverley said that they had some midnight blue cordovan in stock (not sure if cross-hatched or natural) and could get other colours e.g. green.
I agree with this - in fact I was in Cleverley today for a fitting of a pair of pigskin double monk ankle boots. I chose pigskin over pebble grain calf because I preferred the nature texture (although I have had pebble grain shoes/boots made before).I also bit the bullet and ordered some midnight blue stingray wholecuts (ouch on the price but I'm confident they will look amazing).Next commission is likely to be a pair of full brogues in the Horween cross-hatch cordovan,...
