The name is Frills. No Frills.

I have to say, it looks pretty damn awesome on the wrist. I am sure you will be very happy with it!

Waaah!  Looks great!  (And when you replace it, feel free to give it to me...)

 

Congratulations my Frilly friend, this is long overdue, and I think you are right that it's a better option for you than a collectible vintage for the sake of it: it might even relegate the Nautilus to second place as your sandpit watch!

 

By the way, I saw a 5140p in person today.  It is exquisite.  Also, completely unrelated tangent,  I noticed a bunch of new ROOs in the window: those perverts harbouring a guilty desire for a Safari are...not that crazy.  Of all the ROOs there, that's the one that drew the eye in a good way.  Yes, the hornback strap is a little pimp, but that sandy dial and the overal personality are really rather appealing.

Thanks, brothers.  I am of course familiar with all the clichés.  "Everyone has one." "So ubiquitous." "Amateur hour, the first choice of anyone who doesn't know anything about watches." "Not safe to wear a Rolex in NYC subways." "New model has chunky lugs."  But this is my F it, I like it, I'm getting it watch.  Then again, all my watches are kind of like that.  Hah hah.

 

Finally broke the Sub cherry.  Feels good!

 

mimo - you saw the blue dial 5140P?

All those things are true, but you still cannot deny that it is a great watch. Everyone has one for a reason.

I love this. I laugh every time I read it on IG.

 

However, I read a note somewhere... if you are in a foreign country and lose your wallet/passport, etc...

A cliché Rolex will get you more easily out of a bind than something more unique and desirable to the real watch enthusiast like a PP.

I don't know if Frills has ever visited TRF, but there are at least 10 posts a day asking that question. It's kinda a thing over there, now. Inside forum joke, haha.

The Jules Audemars Extra Thin (IMHO) is a delicious watch, and would be next on my acquisition list if I hadn't been recently smitten by Langes. The 2013 version with guilloche dial is pretty stunning, too:



...Of course, it may be a longtime between now and the time I purchase my next watch, so perhaps this may sneak back onto my list. I do love APs!

Oh yeah.  I'm "vc_watches" at TRF.  My friends FremStar and I post threads poking fun at those "is it safe..." questions all the time hahaha.

I do believe there is some merit to this.


With that said, if you're in a foreign country I bet your Rolex is also going to be a bigger target for thieves - much like in the US of A...

Yes I did, just arrived in the local AD that I accidentally fell into while passing.  It really is lovely.  To be quite honest, although of course PP is everything PP is, I've rarely felt any particular passion for any of them.  I admire them, but don't desire them in the same way I would some others.  But that one just hits a sweet spot for me.  I do have a thing for blue stuff I suppose, and that's something that projects so much better in person than in online renditions.  The 5140p is seriously desirable.  Perhaps that's rather obvious to most, but for me it's something new.

 

As for your Sub, the most obvious cliché is "definitive dive watch that is the model of perfect, understated yet iconic design, blended with uncompromising quality and practicality".  It might live in far grander company at Maison Frilly, but stands up proud as the best of its kind - and that's a watch I really desire: nothing showy, all substance.  Beautiful.
