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.

Dresses up:

+1

 

I've had mine for over a year and a half and I feel the same way.  The longer you own it, the more you come to appreciate the workmanship and level of quality that goes into making one.

Gents, just wanted to share my dad's watch that was given to me on my wedding day - we share it as I still like to think of it as his watch (too extravagant for me but I love the watch and the romanticism of travel associated with the piece).



Dino's desk shot is vaguely reminiscent of my office desk, which prompted the photo. Perhaps standard corporate fare.

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.

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 :embar:).

 

I'll definite keep the hunt going, perhaps more so in the 38-40mm range...
