indeed!

there are a few. regular stores, but some very nice selection. obviously they dont carry as much uber high end as what you see in nyc, but there is fun to be had. looking forward to your visit!

My small watch works fine for me.  I'd just say don't be shy with the strap: I find that actually one that doesn't taper too much makes the whole thing look more substantial on the wrist.  And that gold is longing to be set off against something.  I'm thinking...navy cordovan.  But then again, I'm a pervert.

lol. we move our stuff pretty quick, so there is not usually much to see, but would be cool to have DL see my place of bidness.

You're a ginger ninja.  No fooling us.

 

Also, here is a blurry picture of a watch from someone's wrist last night:

I thought you moved quickly in order to get the right look for your SW&D pictures, have I been misinformed. :p

The GP Traveler is very nice, but I have to go with RNguy, even though its a common design feature the short hands bother me a bit, be it on a GP or the Patek.  As you currently have the dual time, I realize its not a world time watch, but still it will do the job...I would avoid the GP and other distractions and focus on a 2 or 3 hand top tier brand as that seems to be something your don't currently have.  

For me, I just don't know what direction I want to move in for my next piece.  I have a few top tier dress watches, I have an AP RO luxury sport watch, and I have sportier watches such as Daytonas, Ex 2, and Sub.  So for me its not really a matter of filling in a gap in my collection.   I hope to do some window shopping very soon which could inspire me.

Dino- Far be it from me to an enabler, but some complications are where I would go with your collection.

I took a break from buying for quite a while, and then recently picked up a a couple of complicated watches. I definitely want to get more, if things like the budget allow.



Regards

Nice to see so many Sinns on TWAT. I don't know that much about their provenance or history, except that they were founded by some with former links to IWC? Would any Sinn collectors out there be able to say more? I'm starting to appreciate their military styling aesthetic...

My phone camera is all I have on me at the moment its mangled lens makes the tan dial look like a sallow mess, so I inverted the colours to salvage the photo.

The 38 mm cushion case sits perfectly on my 200 mm (7 3/4") wrist and it's among the top three in the rotation. I don't get tired of the design and I still haven't spotted any WTF elements to it. I definitely know what you mean about the blued hands and applied rose gold Arabics; it seems to be a GP strength.

Is that from the discontinued Richeville line? Would be nice to see proper photos. Nice to see all this GP love. Despite the minor criticisms levelled at them in the past, I do like their watches and history. They're sadly underrated...

+1 on that; something other than a chronograph? Perhaps a calendar or moon phase? Or, something exotic like those JLC Duometres?

Well, this is pretty damn cool if I do say so myself...

oh yes.

Very nice. I'll take the plat dial in a steel case, please.

Is the dial white or silver? I hope it's white; too few good looking, simple watches with white dials IMHO.
