And if Zippy's 15300 keeps eating like that, it'll be a 15400 by the summer. :rimshot:

:rotflmao:

 

I think you'll have to get in line behind Mrs. Dino.  I think if I start giving out watches she is claiming dibs on the RO, VCs, Daytonas and Tank.  You might have to settle for a Sub or GMT ;)

 

Loved the comment on Zippy's eating vs RO situation.:rotflmao:  Although, looking at the hour markers and tail on the seconds hand I think his RO pre-dates the 15300...it could be 14790, which would be an even great jump in size...from 36 to 41mm!!!  That's a lot of eating!!!

^ I'll happily take the GMT off your hands, Dino wink.gif

Always happy to be of assistance wink.gif

Mind you, that OysterQuartz looks pretty darn good, too.

the Oyster quartz looks great

Dino, some sort of CPCP is a Demi-Grail of mine - a tank or, with luck, a rose gold tortue mono- pusher. Either way, a classic Cartier is a real classic watch. One day...

Well, that glidelock clasp needs to be adjusted a bit.

Thanks.  It certainly shows there are a few quartz watches worth owning.

The CPCP have developed quite a few followers since being discontinued.  I've found that each year more people become aware of theses great pieces. I'm friendly with a few CPCP owners and we find we get a few unsolicited offers to purchase them each year.  Its always nice to hear some of our favorite pieces of the past are so well regarded.  .

 

Wishing you luck on adding some form of CPCP to you collection in the future.  I love the rose Tortue Monopoussoir...its simply an amazing watch and its movement is top notch!  I got to try one on in person years ago, but at the time it was beyond my means...maybe someday.  Cheers!  :cheers:

Probably a pen thread somewhere but I know you guys and someone probably has the answer to this question:

Background. As advised I visited a couple pen boutiques over the weekend. Well, St Dupont, Montblanc and Cartier, the most convenient ones. I found Montblanc to be overdone and a bit tacky (I'm reminded of insurance agents and realtors). St Dupont had by far the smoothest writing experience but I liked the Cartier designs better. All felt pretty comfortable to write with.

So my question is this. Is there any way a Cartier pen will take a St Dupont refill? My instinctive answer is no since most companies like to make their stuff proprietary, but do you pen affficiandos have any experience with hacks like this? Putting a third party refill into a pen?
post #41590 of 48312

When you speak of refill, what exactly do you mean? Just the ink? 

 

Because you can basically ink your pen with any ink you want (in the form of bottled ink and converters instead of cartridges, mind you)!

post #41591 of 48312
Also, the nib and the feed affects the writing experience more than the ink in my experience. So if you like the way Duponts write you should buy the DuPont.
Also, while I can't speak to DuPont and Cartier specifically, most plastic ink cartridges are interchangeable. The main differences to watch for is the length and whether there is room for a spare in the barrel.
post #41592 of 48312
Correct. The way my Cartier works you keep a spare cartridge in the barrel and when you screw it shut the spare presses the one 'in use' home and keeps it snug. I don't think there's much variation though so I wouldn't let it worry you. It's really no hassle buying Cartier cartridges though - every boutique should have them. I just buy boxes at a time. They're not expensive..

Sorry I'm an idiot. I should've specified I'm looking only at rollerballs. I can't write with a fountain pen to save my life.
