Luv that watch.

That looks nice. Give it a black dial and RFX should get that.

I really like the Hublot Classic Automatic in rose gold. Great looking watch.

I wish it was a little bigger, if so, it would be a grail for me.

What size is it? 36 or 38?

More like 34 I think. frown.gif

Wait... the shining example of Hublot's ingenuity is a black rubber strap? confused.gif "Intellectual" qualms aside, I think they are unpleasant to look at and overpriced. It wouldn't matter to me if they used exclusively well finished in-house movements.

I don't want to drag it further but are we really going to discredit and snuff at Hublot being the first watch to use a natural rubber strap on wristwatches?

I mean hate on the brand all you want but give credit where credit is due, a rubber strap is pretty important in the world of wristwatches these days whether you like them on your watches or not.



That Patek is pretty Stitchy, does it have an open caseback?

I think some liquid should be poured on this fire.

I think the important thing for people to remember is to advance their date tonight.
It's been 92 days since that's last been required.
Perpetual owners please ignore.

Whoa, yeah that's a bit small. I'm not into big watches and 42mm is the biggest I have now. I do have one at 38mm, but the AP 15300 wears a bit bigger. At 6' 3" and older eyes I just can't see 34mm working for me.

You realize that just because you've posted this, I'm going to have to stay up until midnight tonight just to watch mine turn over.

Yeah. I did a fair amount of trying it on, and it just looks too small for my wrist.

I dont hate Hublot and Mr. Biver is a genius.

New to me IWC Portofino. To be worn for my upcoming wedding, and with luck, passed down to my eventual children.

Kind of sounds the way it was for me and the Rolex Day Date. I've tried the 36mm Day Date a number of times and I really wanted to make it work, but it's just too small for me.
