Actually, fuck that.

I'd get an FP Journe Souverain before a Royal Oak.

Thanks to @in stitches @cyc wid it @jhcam8 @Newcomer @ChicagoRon @no frills @Dino944 @RogerP for the help / advice

Congrats and enjoy it!  A friend of mine had a Sinn Chronograph years ago and he really liked it a lot.  Wishing you many years of enjoyment from it.  :cheers:

Cat's out of the bag--sometimes I dress a little bit urban. smile.gif Seriously, it's cold in there, and I like to conceal the fact that I'm wearing my earbuds so I don't look like a total spoil sport. If you've ever had to sit through something like Smurfs 2 you would understand.

Ah.  My kids are teens now, but yes.  However, the gentleman's solution is to wear wool and go to sleep. :)

You forgot "sneak in a flask of bourbon".

LOL, thankfully the theater serves cocktails and does have table service.

Actually, I saw it in person and was bewitched.  The Jumbo ET in particular was magical.  But they all have a certain something, even some of the Offshores.


I still don't like it for me, I can appreciate it for what it is, but what it is is not for me. The 15202 is the only one I wouldn't turn around and sell if gifted though.

The basic 103 is a great watch. The Ti models, not so much.

Welcome to the acrylic fetishists legion!

Congrats stevent - that's a solid chrono - enjoy the heck out of it.

But doesn't that mean you will show too much cuff if you're wearing the Cartier (or no watch)?*
