Speaking of "nontraditional" colors, Leffot has a blazing new Arca pair in aubergine, a deep shade of purple. I never thought I'd see myself wearing purple shoes, but I do have a lot of purple in my wardrobe (dress shirts, ties). And I now wear cherry, navy and olive shoes with abandon. Will I get myself an aubergine pair of Arcas? Time will tell...
get em. I LOVED my arcas so much...and theres really no other company that does aubergine like corthay. stunning to say the least.
In recent years I've steered clear of slim/smaller dial watches. By small I mean 40mm lol.
Mostly because I've bought Panerai's exclusively.
I would love a 15400 and it could very well be a choice in the near future.
Though I would probably move my 5001 Porto if going down that route.
i was a HUGE Panerai guy for years....I started out with a 112 and went through probably a dozen of them easily. I had both a 217 and a 127 which are 47mm...it took some getting used to when i went to smaller watches. Ive worn a GMT IIc for a long time now...got used to the 40mm size and now im getting used to the AP size.
