Id have to go rolex. Slimmer I think and generally more muted in appearance. I think that will allow it more applications.

Yes.

Some lovely pieces there but there's nothing like a Reverso.

I've already got the Omega pictured above, but intend to also get the Explorer 1 pictured above. I guess I just wanted to know which provides the more versatility to wear all throughout the year in different forms of dress, season etc.

Explorer for me mate

(and thanks!)

Yes. It is beautiful but apart from the gold it is the same as the SS version of the GRUT at less than half the price.

I would buy the Jules Audemars Extra Thin and not wear it to the office. It does not look like an office watch to me.

An ALS for under $10K?!?  Doesn't come with B&P and his mention of "could use a refinish" leads me to question his care of the watch.  It is a beauty though.

 

As for other orders of business....The Explorer is my choice and is the Reverso.  

 

Also, since when is the YM douchy to wear?  It is loud but aren't the douches buying Hublot's at that price point?

Affirmative, TC.

Maybe you won't have to drive to San Antonio for your next one smile.gif
