I ended up choosing this and meeting up with a guy from a watch forum up in NY to pick this up - I'm in love with it.

The Ultra Thin Moon gets a lot of love (and justifiably so), but for me the RDM on the wrist was one of those "love at first sight" situations.

your JLC looks incredible.

Wear your new RDM in the best of health. I saw it in the flesh not too long ago, and it is a spectacular watch!

I echo the sentiments vis-a-vis the sister.

Also, on a completely unrelated note, here is a watch I have really grown to appreciate. At first, I liked it, but did not understand it. Now that I understand it... it really is spectacular.

Also, great B-Uhr Type B. I have always been a fan of the Type A and B pilot watches. Laco does a great Type B. And it helps that they are one of the originals!

I agree, that is why I chose Laco instead of the many others out there that are new additions to the market. A good stop gap until the IWC falls into my price range, the A. Lange will be out of it for a long time. I went with the Japanese movement, instead of the more expensive ETA. I have the manual wind Panerai for the movement.

Love the GP cushion shaped chrono!

Love the dark dial on your vintage Seamaster!

 

Wow, some great watches gents.  Hope you are enjoying them.  Its a rather drab rainy day here, so I'll share a photo from this past weekend when I was enjoying sunshine and seafood at an outdoor seaside cafe with Mrs. Dino.

Thanks for the comments and compliments, guys!  There is a nice black 37mm RDM on the used market right now for a pretty good price.  37-39mm is the perfect case size to me - I think it's where Frederique Constant really dropped the ball when making their own Slimline Moonphase - the MUT Moon 39 is just a cut above.

 

I try and avert my eyes when someone mentions Lange - can't afford to fall in love ;)

Cool Seamaster.  Vintage omegas have always been on my shortlist.  Shoutout to the hairless asian arms #HAArmy

Dino, that's from the CPCP collection right? Let's see the back!

Hi MZH, very nice Tank Basculante!  A friend of mine has one and loves it.  Yes, mine is the Tank XL from the CPCP collection.  As you may recall, this has a rather unusual rectangular movement, which was a big selling point for me on this piece.  Please excuse my rather amateurish photo skills.  Enjoy!

Boy that is a stunner. Such a shame they did away with the CPCP stuff, it was a big selling point on Cartier IMO.

I want this watch so hard.

New Seadweller is awesome too, but I've had a watch-crush on the modern Freccione ever since the crown released it.
post #32609 of 48312
Goddamn you guys and your tanks.

I want one of those too.

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
post #32610 of 48312
The new explorers are nice although it takes time getting used to the cartoonishly big hands, I'm thinking to pick up the polar one soon.
On a different note, I got my DSSD and have been wearing it for two days now. It did take me a full day to get used to the heft and thickness, I think I am still getting used to the weight but it is a very nice watch and I enjoy looking at it throughout the day!
