Really, really hate this. The applied Roman numerals are way too clunky and blingy. The only thing worse is the lone baton at 9 o'clock. It looks like a mistake.I liked the previous generation Datejust with the thin batons.
I'm finally making it back to Paris for fittings at Charvet the first week of November. I also have appointments at Maison Bonnet and Lavabre Cadet (ahem, now Camille Fournet). If anyone wants to hang out in Paris from November 4 through November 6, let me know!
Eight Rubinacci and Cappelli ties for sale. Each is Italian "seven-fold" (read: actually six-fold) with hand-rolled edges. Most are completely unlined (indicated when there is interlining). Each was ordered bespoke and thus potentially one-of-a-kind. All are in unworn or excellent condition, without any stains or marks.
Cappelli ties are $90 each. Rubinacci ties are $110 each. Shipping is $5 anywhere in the CONUS. Extra for insurance. Payment by PayPal.
For what it's worth, I would have picked the SubC ND too. Regardless of price, I think it is the purer design. First of all, the original Sub had no date. Second, a date indicator seems silly on a watch ostensibly meant for diving, in which context it is far more important that the minute and second markers be clearly legible.Anyways, I'm glad you weren't tempted by increased exclusivity. That's no way to live.
