Cool, thanks for sharing. I like the pieces he's written for Hodinkee.
Still don't care for his music though, but he does seem like a mellow dude.post #25158 of 483129/25/13 at 10:59amQuote:
You know, I really can't stand any of his mainstream music--but he is actually a very, very gifted musician when he is doing the things that he wants to do. And I say that even though I have heard "Daughters" on the radio too many times to count.
But he does seem very passionate about horology, which is interesting.post #25159 of 483129/25/13 at 11:24ampost #25160 of 483129/25/13 at 12:22pmpost #25161 of 483129/25/13 at 12:39pmQuote:
Isn't that surprising? I actually quite like it on a strap. I wish that Patek decided to sell it that way. Only having rubber as an option is less than stellar.Quote:
Haha, well, of course I would rather Kate go for others, better a watch nut than a non-watch nut!
And yes, it is an interesting watch. I may have to give it a try one of these days!post #25162 of 483129/25/13 at 12:39pmpost #25163 of 483129/25/13 at 1:06pmpost #25164 of 483129/25/13 at 1:17pmpost #25165 of 483129/25/13 at 1:58pmQuote:Originally Posted by Newcomer
Also, lately I have been obsessing over the Aquanaut for some odd reason or another. The Aquanaut, Royal Oak, and Nautilus have been getting a lot of attention from me. As has the new Rolex GMT BLNR. I should be able to pick up the Rolex sometime soon, if I so desired, but I can't help but feel that it will not quite scratch the itch.
Also, for those who do not visit Hodinkee, they have an interview with John Mayer. He may be the best chance we have for a TWATter to unite with the lovely Ms. Upton.
I love the Nautilus and RO, but sorry the Aquanaut just doesn't do anything for me. I've even tried them on, but if getting a Patek Sports watch, IMHO it just pales in comparison to the beautiful blue/grey tones of the 5711 and 5712. I'm also not in love with the hour markers on it and I find the grid pattern sort of clumsy compared to the ridges of a 5711 or 5712, or the Clous De Paris of a 15202 RO. If going for a luxury sports watch I'd say stick with a Nautilus or maybe a RO.
As for Rolex, its a classic and much more rugged. I see it as scratching a different itch. I've worn Rolex's to do virtually everything, and they can take a beating. A friend that had a Nautilus and owned a restaurant found when he was working in the kitchen it would get so banged up and jostled that it would end up going back to the Henri Stern service center about once a year. He found a Sub could take the same punishment and keep going for years at a time. So I think it really depends on your activities and lifestyle, but there are certain things I just wouldn't subject a Nautilus or RO to even if it could take the punishment.Quote:
I don't care for his own music, but a friend made me watch him cover Voodoo Chile and I was pretty impressed. To bad his own music sort of sucks...although if it gets the girls, maybe he is more successful than I originally gave him credit for.post #25166 of 483129/25/13 at 3:03pmpost #25167 of 483129/25/13 at 5:12pmpost #25168 of 483129/25/13 at 5:16pmpost #25169 of 483129/25/13 at 6:07pmpost #25170 of 483129/25/13 at 6:13pmGentlemen,
A quick question for you TWATs or WISs:
I've heard mention of snowflake dials, particularly in regard to Tudor watches.
I can see that the hands on some models of Tudor watches have a bit of a snowflake shape (see here for example), but the reference to the snowflake dial leaves me a bit puzzled.
Am I confusing myself, and there is nothing snowflake-like about the dial, and the reference to "snowflake dial" is simply to a dial which belonged to a watch with snowflake hands, which is sometimes referred to as a "snowflake Tudor"?
Or is there something special about the dial itself?
Apologies in advance for the undoubtedly foolish question.
