This. That is a lovely watch. :drool:

That watch really is sublimely proportioned.

I look forward to hearing some of your thoughts with time.

As I said, it's conceptually perfect.  I found it just a little too big and empty, and wished it were either 1-1.5mm smaller, or had some texture.  But that was how it felt on my wrist, and it's a very personal thing.

 

There's no question that the design of the dial is just beautifully understated.  Congrats on a classy purchase. :)

A few months ago I came here thinking about buying a Max Bill chrono as my first watch.

This is what I ended up with - just picked him up today

Congrats on the new JLC!!!  Its a beauty.  So simple and so elegant!  I'm sure it will give you many years of enjoyment.  Congrats again!

Yes I wouldn't necessarily call that a like for like substitution, but such are the perils of TWAT-addiction!

So, what do y'all think about the new Piaget Altiplano 900P? I feel like it may be met with mixed reviews around these parts.




38mm in width, 3.85mm in height.

Price will be around $25k, so while not inexpensive, I think it is fair for what is inarguably a piece of haute horologie.

Personally, I am kind of in love with it. I find it fascinating, and an ingenious way of reducing the thickness of a watch without making it too flimsy. From the hands on reviews I have read, everyone has remarked at how sturdy it feels, which is often a criticism of the ultra thin watches.

Although I feel the white gold will be more popular, I kind of like the rose and grey. I may have to check one of these out in the metal!

A lot has changed, but overall I'm doing well.
Also, thank you for the tip! Excuse my ignorance, but changing time both directions does not hurt the watch? The second JLC is the local one.

doing well, very nice to see you back. glad you are well, too!

changing the time in either direction should not damage a watch at all.

i am a huge franboi of the JLC MUT and MUT Moon. could not rec those strongly enough.
