Of course they are.

 

 

Where do you think the name Nautilus came from? LOL

 

 

But then again one best make sure they don't go diving any deeper than 120m.

 

 

Frankly, I haven't and I don't even plan on taking mine into the pool. LOL

Cool picture.

 

Heck and my next picture was just going to be the Nautilus paired with my blue Galways.


Let's see that pic dddrees!

Yeah, I don't know about the Nautilus. Sometimes I think it's rare and elusive. Other times I get sent by the wife to buy some potato chips and you just see them by the beef jerky and Lay's...

Working today but casual. No date sub goes well with jeans, I think

Unfortunately they are still in the process of being made. I'm hoping to have them in another month or two.

 

 

In the meantime, I'm enjoying your Nauti in the wild pics.

Nice

 

I personally think the Sub works rather well with everything.

Awesomeness.  Think the Sub works with ANYTHING.

 

EDIT: Right. What dddrees said above. Hahaha!

Oh best wishes!  Are they in midnight blue and navy suede like mine?  Other design details?

 

Always so exciting to have an incoming although sometimes the wait can be a bit annoying for a low patience guy like me hahaha.

Does that store do BOGOF?

PS Love the sub Flake
post #27249 of 48312

Frilly you make me chuckle!  Perhaps if you keep spotting them you can collect a breeding pair?

 

+1 to the other voices on the universal beauty of the no-date Sub!

 

(And congrats on a lovely choice of shoes, D)

Yes, just like yours.

 

They're on the 82 Last with a Dainite Sole.

 

I'm not sure if I saw your Nauti and Galway picture before or after I submitted my order. But I always thought about getting a pair of the Blue Galways ever since I received my Dark Oak and Walnut pair about a year ago.

 

It's been a long wait, but it will certainly be worth it in my book. In the meantime I've ordered and received a number of other pairs of shoes and boots which has helped to keep me distracted elsewhere. I didn't have anything planned for January's gap until a couple of days ago. I just filled that with a cordovan loafer. I don't know what I'm going to do if they don't arrive here in February. LOL

I love old wrist watch ads.  I have a few at home from Patek, AP, and others.

Not sure if you are joking, but its not really a dive watch.  It was simply them advertising its water resistance.  I suppose its no more or less a dive watch than say a Rolex Datejust.  Still it is fun to see old wristwatch ads.

I never confirmed with the Breguet Boutique if they are actually sections from imperfect dials, butt that is what I believe they came from.  I just can't see them wasting their time or resources on just sections of guilloche dials for cufflinks.  However, cutting away the usable sections of imperfect dials would make sense at least to me.  Either way, they are simply stunning IMHO.

Fun idea, but I've never been a huge fan of FM stuff.  I generally don't think the quality is there relative to the cost and there are products from other brands that I would prefer to own.

Bit of a paradox, isn't it?

Spot on Hayward!  :cheers:

Based on your photo, the next time I visit the supermarket I'll be sure to see if they have a Nautilus at big a discount in the section next to the day old bread.  ;)

Anyone who isn't keen on maximising his lunch hour needs to find better company/restaurants. :)

post #27254 of 48312

To be honest I have not looked too in depth at the PP Nautilus as it is outside of my budget and drooling too much leaves me thirsty.  Now that you point out the nature of the add Dino it makes a lot more sense.

I need to find out where Frills shops for snacks!
