At that point you could just buy a bracelet. Unless you could read that.

And lordy, that Dornbleuth is nice looking . . .(but I may opt for an Eberhard Traverselto).


Can I see it too?

Absolutely--we can coordinate a good time for interested parties (to ogle a sub-$400 watch, that is). I work in the golden triangle/rectangle of Aaron Faber, Wempe, Cellini and Tourneau. . .

I, too, would like to coordinate a meeting to check out a sub-$500 ETA like Stowa or even Limes, if someone has one of those. I think that price has a lot to offer for everyday beaters.

EDIT: It could be a junior TZ/SF get together.

Excellent.

I work downtown but travel in and out of Grand Central, FWIW.

To tell you the truth I don't know, I'm on a new medication.

My first watch purchase in over two years, a Chinese tourbillon:

Case in point about size of watches... I was crazy about the Ulysee Nardin "Blue Wave", which is 41mm... but it looked tiny on my wrist and I didn't end up buying it. I opted for an Omega Planet Ocean instead, which was 45.5mm but wasn't overwhelming for my wrist size... that watch is now gone and I'm into Panerai at this point for casual looks.

My wrist is 6.25 inches so in terms of practicality, I'm inclined towards smaller watches.
