amazeballs, dude. Keep on Keepin' on!
I've yet to see any BLNR around me/in the AD's, on civilians, etc. Quite a few 5001's always on display in my ADs though. I never thought my watch was or would be rare TBH. Though I've never seen anyone else around these parts have one on either..
^ Yowza, both great watches though being completely different. Flip a coin? The BLNR is surely a favorite among watch guys, even more so with Rolex purists so it must be doing many things right. Personally I prefer the IWC, as the polished links on the oyster bracelet are a bit of a pet peeve, but again both solid choices.
ie, NOT Panerai.. (save a few of their simpler Rads). Don't get me wrong I'm a huge fan, but most people who buy PAMs understand that they're not understated timepieces.
For sure you'e right about perspective. I guess in a lot of these wrist shots we're trying to emphasize the dial/hands/layout/case of the watch by getting up close, understanding that perspective will suffer. Of course the overall picture with more natural viewing distance and normal perspective looks great, but sometimes I also want to see up close shots of the watch too. I suppose those up close shots don't HAVE to be wrist shots though..
Sure - apologies for the really craptastic quality.. Ever since iPhoto because "Photos", I've had so many misplaced pics, hard to find a lot of them..
Admittedly it's not a watch for everyone but I think for it's price it's a great watch. The 7 day movement has been great (for some reason a lot more accurate than the same movement in my BP..). I agree it's a tad thick, but the diameter is perfect for my taste. Even though I have a smaller, thinner and simpler 40 mm JLC, I almost always reach for the IWC when I need to wear it with a suit/formal situations and it's fine. I have a 7" wrist and the proportions to me are...
Have it and love it. Not a true dress watch per se but a great casual piece.
thankfully out of my size..
ahhh. good eye. Mike, FWIW I think the non-sideburn look is better on you!
