Sorry, you still look like you stepped out of an episode of Downton Abbey. Today as much as yesterday. That's not a criticism; it's a compliment. Not very many people today could pull that look off, but you do and do it very well indeed. I consider you one of the very best dressed on Style Forum. My hat's off to you.

I love this. I love anyone who won't be blown all over the place by the winds of fashion / trendiness.

 

Care to share a close-up picture of your pocket watch? (face)

Roycru, you look terrific my man. Fashion is fleeting, but style endures. Your look won't play with the skinny suit set. And thank heavens for that.

On the watch front, too much text and date bubbles combine to keep me away from some otherwise very appealing Rolex offerings. And the whole "superlative" thing rubs me the wrong way. Oh well, if my eyes gey any worse all that ridiculous text will be just a blur anyway.

Thumbs up to every compliments here to you @Roycru!

 

How's the 114060 treating you @TheWraith - a keeper?

I think everyone's cap is doffed to @Roycru - top notch.

Thanks awfully to everyone who liked the pictures.  Here's a picture of both of the Hamilton 992B's showing their seldom-seem-when-being- worn faces hanging out where they hang out when they're not being worn.......

Lovely! Do you have any close-ups?

I like that pocket watch stand.  An auctioneer buddy always lets me know when he has watches in his auctions and he comes across a lot of pocket watches.  A recent auction of his had 2 Pateks, an early Rolex oyster, and a ton of pocket watches mostly sold in sets of 3 for parts to make 1 work.

Man, I don't get out enough. Can you provide context to this picture?

And a tip o' the hat to your style--I'm blown away by your timeless choices and the facts that not only do you still fit in them, but also that you maintained your clothes so beautifully.

Now...about that eye candy...do tell.

Wow. That is a blue steak. How was it?

A man who has a watch stand for his pocket watches... I am in awe. and suddenly a whole new world is opening up to me. Pocket watches, and the paraphernalia associated with pocket watches. Mrs Dachshund is going to have a fit.

This today for me - taking a little time out in Italy.

I would also like to laud Mr. @Roycru for what appears to be a lifelong commitment to the stiff upper lip.

Thanks again to everyone who liked the pictures.  The picture that gopherblue asked about was taken in early February at a pre-Valentine's day fashion show.  

Now, back to watches.  Those of you who post in this thread and who have watches are leaving a a very special legacy for your descendants.  All of your watches will last beyond the end of time, and for many future generations your descendants will wear your watches and remember you.

They will thank you when, while wearing a watch that you bought, the watch is noticed by someone, so they get the job or meet the girl, or whatever happens that might not have happened if they were not wearing the watch.

The next time that you see a watch that you want, don't hesitate.  Buy it.  It's a good investment, and you want to be sure to leave enough watches for all your descendants, because you don't want any of them not to have a watch and to not remember you.

(You can save enough money to buy any watch that you want by not eating too much food, and, as an additional benefit of not eating too much food, your clothes will always fit you, and you won't have to buy new clothes.)
