I always thought the black-strapped version looked a bit unorthodox (I guess I just don't like black for what seems to be a very casual looking watch strap), but the brown really ties the whole look together. I really hope I can get my hands on a Reverso one day.
And that is a lovely Hamilton, an excellent choice for your first automatic. Slightly reminiscent of the GO Senator Sixties, in my most humble of opinions.
Also, some great watches that have been posted lately. Truly, this has been one of the threak's golden eras.post #13942 of 483129/10/12 at 5:06pmpost #13943 of 483129/10/12 at 6:24pmQuote:Originally Posted by in stitches
Yesterday was a great watch porn day.
Went to wempe, and the breguet flagship boutique in NYC. An amazing minute repeater at breguet being the highlight, just wow. Also never saw so many tourbs in day.
Met up with dopey and gdl. Dopey was wearing a vintage omega. gdl was wearing his watch from the OP, and was kind enough to let me take this homage pic.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
he even let my wear it myself and take my own pic. I chose a steak backdrop.
Sounds like a great day Stitches. I know I always enjoy taking a look at few watches and talking about them with a few people who share the same interest.post #13944 of 483129/10/12 at 7:12pmpost #13945 of 483129/10/12 at 7:45pmpost #13946 of 483129/10/12 at 7:53pmQuote:
i can neither confirm or deny these allegations.Quote:
exactly. i was really lucky in that all the SAs i spoke to had a genuine interest in watches, and watch making. despite knowing i had no intention of making a purchase, they were all all very gracious with their time even offering to show me things i didnt ask to see. the breguet lady even offered me a loupe to scope out the skeletonized tourb, the guilloche dials, and the movements through the case back. it was a wonderful experience.post #13947 of 483129/10/12 at 9:47pmpost #13948 of 483129/11/12 at 8:23amQuote:
Hey Stitch, sorry no photos. It just seemed like it would not have been a good opportunity, since it was indoors at night and they had a professional photographer using a flash and I didn't want to annoy him or the boutique director. They did have some great watches, Astrotourbillon, Skeleton Santos Dumont (in white gold and carbon coated titanium), Rotonde Tourbillon, Calibre Perpetual Calendar, Pasha Skeleton Tourbillon, Rotonde Perpetual Calendar and several other great pieces. If anyone is in Boston they should check out these watches while they are still at the boutique (they will be there until Sunday). My only issue with some of their pieces, is that on the automatic watches, I really felt for the price they cost they should have a rotor made of precious metal.Quote:Originally Posted by Jt787

no worries. glad you had a good time. sounds like pr0n heaven. and yes, precious metal rotors are a nice extra touch and often really should be done as standard at a certain price point, at least imo.post #13950 of 483129/11/12 at 12:25pmI really wish I could attend this. If anyone goes, can you post pics?
