Awesomeness, @Steel28 

 

@Newcomer it's simple enough: small wrist vs big watch = questionable, big muskels vs big watch = awesome.  Miss Upton's chest alone would merely be a bicycle stand with no wider context.

Gratuitously, as trikes don't need a stand!

Love you my brethren. Let's see how much fun and use I get from this monster, huh? 💪

 

So you already bought it?? LOL.  Do you -- life is too dang short.

Frills - you didn't heed the TWAT'ers and now we're brothers icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

What are you initial thoughts? I think it looks great on you. Are you going to get the new SD as well? Is that 4 Rolexes in less than 4 months??!!

You really are your namesake

Congrats again

R

PS - Swede and Steel - congrats on some great lookers

Yea, I don't buy it. I think its a bit of romanticizing how much workmanship goes into some of their pieces. They make some of the most sophisticated complications and yet they say three years developing the back?
I think its also to try to justify how ridiculous their prices have become.

Sorry, my friend. If it's any consolation we had owned our previous Porsche for 4 years, before we got invited to their driving event. wink.gif

Congrats on your latest purchase. You know I'd agree with many of your sartorial choices, but please lose the red rubber strap.

WIWT.
Sjöö & Sandström Chronolink. Probably a watch unknown to the majority here, made by a small Swedish watch company. On top a classic analogue watch with a sixties flavour (powered by ETA 7001) and below a digital watch with racing cronograph, world time, code memory and alarm). Produced in ca 4000 pieces over 18 years and no longer produced today.
