The GRAFF watch will be lived in now all of the time, and I'll use a top strap maker for future replacement straps...

Can't wait to get it - my birthday is April 19th, so it's my birthday present to myself!smile.gif

Here is my 18ct gold GRAFF /Chopard watch

It's a rare model given as a precious gift by the Sultan of Brunei to honoured people when he was the richest man in the world - a collectors item, but I wear it every day and will treasure it forevet:)

OK you asked for it.  Well, you didn't, but it's been a while and you made me think of it: here is my certainly-not-gold grubby Rodania quartz emblazoned "The Leader, Saddam Hussein".  It was given to me by the former Governor of Kirkuk, may he rest in peace.  I never met Saddam though!

I wanted to say that you feel secure in your arms. but mostly it is the arms of a wonderful father.


For the record Stitchy, I don't know if you feel secure in your arms, but I feel secure in my arms.

After some of his deadlift routines for the past few months, DLJr may well be secure in his arms too.

Also, it took a full five days but finally my wife gave in and borrowed my Sub last Friday night haha. I got her "beater Patek" in exchange. Must admit it looks good on her!

Any excuse, eh?  Your arms are making my legs feel insecure!

 

P.S.  She wins.  Until you get the SD.  Man, I really love that Sub, though...:inlove:

She ALWAYS wins. Because in our many years of marriage I have learned that if I win, I really lose... Hahahah!

She does prefer a date though. So I suspect what will happen is a complex transaction called a "swap" where I will get the SD4000, and see it miraculously migrate to her wrist, after which I get the SubC ND back...

Haha my arms still aren't very big, but I'm feeling secure. It's really the butter fingers that are more of the concern.

I figured something like that, the google translate tool is not always accurate.

Thanks again! cheers.gif

I'm so happy for you and your family, stitch! Congratulations! fistbump.gif

Two pictures from me today. Saturday I wore my AP while enjoying the warm weather, today my Sunday watch was a vintage Omega Seamaster De Ville satisfied.gif

@NonServiam I love that omega. I want something along the lines of that for my formal watch. The simplicity is beautiful.


@no frills, how the fuck do you fit into a suit? Are all your suits bespoke?

Thank you! Vintage Omegas are clean, cool and affordable. I think this one would cost as much as the rubber strap for the AP ...

Not so sure about the ostrich leg strap I put it on though?
