Glasses - bespoke from Tom Davies UK. Yes, Frilly wears glasses with blue/purple titanium fronting and cotton acetate arms. And yes, those Arca derbys from Corthay are aubergine (eggplant):

Ah, scratches. Damn polished surfaces. Wearing my white dial Daytona today, and Mrs No Frills wears this one often. I weep for 'dem polished surfaces!

Why? I agree with you in the first part. smile.gif

I can't give you a reason. Just a preference.

Now that's one I could go for - looks much more balanced with the date at 6.

(but really, nobody wants to talk double flying tourbillons and quadruple escapements?!)

This is one of my least favourite GMTs probably because of the inner dial. Again, I have to admit it's versatile but I much prefer the Rolex Explorer II/GMT or for Omega the new PO GMT for design.

Understood; no question the Rolex GMT is so much cleaner (and it's a Rolex).  I like the PO too, but only the black one with the silver indices - the black/orange, blue/orange and...orange, are a bit garish for me.  Basically, I just wish the AT didn't have a date at all, then the standard model would be sweetest.

Hi guys...seeking some advice here...I'm visiting New York and Toronto next month and wondering if any of you guys know any really good Longines dealers in either of those cities...I'm specifically looking for a 39mm longines hydroconquest auto with black rubber strap...I've called dealers I found online and it appears the model I want (L3.694.4.53.2) is an "international model"... They have other models of the hydroconquest but all seem to be 41mm and it's the 39mm that I want. Any suggestions for where I could check in New York or Toronto? I'd prefer buying from a store, than online so I could try it on first....thanks!

Am I even aloud to post an Omega in here? Or is that too small-time?
