Beautiful Dino! I know you and Frills are not doing it on purpose, but each and everyday I vacillate between the 15202 and the 5711 as my next watch. Today, you are winning.

I am having a whole lot of fun showing off my jeans to Mimo biggrin.gif.

And congrats on the Porsche! What did you get?

I think car pics are always welcome.

But the watch is nice.

Awe, no love for the shell loafers?

And if it is any consolation, I do not own anything that even faintly resembles a nylon tracksuit top.

Shell loafers, if you think about it, are a rather odd concept.  But I have love for them nonetheless.  

 

And apart from your disgraceful overalls and socklessness, I'm still smarting at what you said about the Speedmaster Moonphase.   I LOVE that watch.  It's top of my Omega wish list :)

 

Dino, I love your watch even more- now you'd better show us the accessory car!

Enjoy that new Porsche, Dino!

 

Thanks, for the kind words about the AP and the Porsche...I can't wait for some nice spring weather to get so I can take some nice photos of my 2 blue babies together.

Frills and I have a diabolical plan to post pix repeatedly of the 5711 and 15202 until you can't their their images out of your mind.  Its called PP/AP syndrome...there is no cure.  You will just have to give in and buy one!!!

 

Its a new 2014 Cayman S that Mrs. Dino and I ordered a few months ago.

I just love that shade of blue and how it changes color in different lighting conditions.

Since you asked here are a few pix from when it arrived at the dealer.  Not all of the plastic was removed (bright blue stuff near inner part of door) and the wheel caps hadn't been installed yet.  Its all being detailed and prepped to come home.

Lovely Cayman. Cheers, fellow Porsche owner!

You know, I saw this post years ago at Leffot, and it has stuck with me for quite sometime! I finally caved in when I went to New York. They are stupidly, unbelievably comfortable. This last weekend, I legitimately went hiking (in the Appalachian mountains... err foothills) with them. Sockless. No blisters.

And I really do like the Speedmaster Moonphase aesthetically--it is a great watch. But I just have a general qualm with that combination of complications. In some regard or another, I like purposive timepieces. A timepiece that sticks to a theme, and embodies a certain ideal. That is one of the beautiful things about the Perpetual Calendar Chronograph--to me, it embodies a mastery of time. It calculates everything from seconds to years. It is poetic. The original Speedmaster has a similar purity, and at least in my case, I do not believe that the Moonphase makes it a more coherent watch. The moonphase is a beautiful complication--easily my favorite aesthetically. But I feel like it clashes with the general purpose of a sports watch.

Of course, this is just me being a nerd smile.gif.

Well, that diabolical plan is working perfectly. With what y'all are doing though, I will end up buying both smile.gif.

Also, that Cayman is awesome! I hope to transition straight from my 'Yota to Porsche, after a good amount of saving and prudence.

I must have missed this moonphase discussion.  A Speedy with moonphase?  Seems like it will be just as crowded as the OP who mentioned the Speedy day/date.  

 

As for other posts in life, congrats to TC on the business opportunity and Dino on the new car.  When I first saw the insta pic in its wrapping I thought you got a 918...

 

As for my personal outside of TWAT news February not only brings my marriage (2 weeks away!) but also a new house.  Got word over lunch ours is as good as sold and our offer is waiting to be signed.  New watch funds will be routed directly to new decorating funds and I doubt a JLC Atmos is in the cards for a mantle piece...

As someone who saw those slip ons in person on Nuke, I approve. They aren't my style, but after seeing them on Nuke I was nearly converted enough to kop.
