Haha, oh man you are pushing him even further into the dark side with that post!
After a couple of months of ownership, I'm more pleased than ever with the SS Royal Oak--I love it more and more every day.
And of course you know, finishing is unparalleled!post #28987 of 483122/10/14 at 11:31ampost #28988 of 483122/10/14 at 11:32ampost #28989 of 483122/10/14 at 11:34amGents, resistance is futile!!!Quote:

Dino's desk shot is vaguely reminiscent of my office desk, which prompted the photo. Perhaps standard corporate fare.post #28992 of 483122/10/14 at 12:04pmpost #28993 of 483122/10/14 at 12:11pmpost #28994 of 483122/10/14 at 12:46pmQuote:Originally Posted by CHRK33

Talk about a special day! You married the person of your dreams, you purchased a Jumbo RO for the special day, and your Dad gave you a Patek....sounds to me like you won the trifecta !!! Congrats my friend!
And yes standard corporate office furniture....my wife once asked me if I would like a JLC Atmos for my office but I had to tell her it wouldn't go with the decor.post #28995 of 483122/10/14 at 12:49pmQuote:Originally Posted by Dino944
I'd have to see that one in person. Usually a movement when a chrono movement from a smaller case gets moved to larger case, everything shifts toward the middle. Some watches its more obvious than others. I find the dial a bit busy, especially with the tachymeter then another group of numbers inset from that, and then you finally get to minute markers and seconds. Clearly, its to take up space on the dial, since they bumped up the size. I also do not care for the outlines around the day, date, and month. Maybe it would look better in person, but they have other designs I'd rather have than this piece.Quote:Originally Posted by RogerP
That's pretty sweet. 42mm is about the upper limit for an ElPrimero-powered watch - the subdials begin to look far too scrunched in toward the center beyond that size. You're not going to find a lot of contemporary men's chronograhs in the 38mm case size these days, though some no doubt exist.
I like this one a bunch, but I would have no hope of making use of the triple date without the aid of reading glasses, so I would (and did) choose a model with just the chronogrpaph / single date only.
Thanks for the feedback, gentlemen! I agree on all of your points. I'd forego the decimal seconds and tachymeter tracks for increased legibility and better proportions. The triple calendar adds an uncommon, interesting complication, which I can appreciate (and hopefully my eyesight hasn't deteriorated too much to read it ).
I'll definite keep the hunt going, perhaps more so in the 38-40mm range...
