Yours might be the coolest of the bunch though. I really dig it. Also a shade of brown or grey for the wife's strap.

IMHO the only watch you really need is a 1970's Rolex Submariner, sartorial elegance and practical as well - very English in a Swiss sort of way :)

Awesome Glashuttes, NOMOS and SINNs! This is a fine Friday here on TWAT.

Wow. Don't see a lot of Breguet around here.

Congratulations, and definitely post some pics when it arrives.

Beautiful!  (Not sure I love the split second hand whirling away but other than that mannnn amazing.)

 

Please let us know what you think once you get it.  Congrats

 

What's the service interval on that bad boy?  The magnetic pivots are fantastic engineering

Any love for G-shocks in this thread?

 

I cant think of a better or more reliable watch for the gym or outdoors (real outdoors activities like trekking, camping, etc) 

 

i rock my rangeman in those places

 

 

 

and just placed an order on the Love The Sea And The Earth version lol

Thanks, guys. The manager at the Breguet boutique suggested that the 7727 would not require more frequent servicing.

Perhaps, though I still wouldn't wear one with a suit much, whatever the hipsters say.  Go back a few pages for the most recent "one watch?" type discussion.  I speak as someone very English, in a Swiss sort of way.

Frilly has one for "tough mudding" and the like, if I recall correctly.  And he is our King.

 

But I think they're horrible.  For real outdoor activities like trekking, camping, diving, climbing, falling, screaming, fighting bears/sharks/aliens, etc.*, I think for under $200, there is not much better than this:

 

 

(*Also suitable for eating dainty macarons.)

Quoted one more time for awesomeness!

 

For all the things on which TWAT tends to agree, it is always good to see people dancing to their own individual tunes.  Shared appreciation > groupthink.  I never wear gold, even if I could afford such a magnificent beast, but my word that's a wonder to behold.  Get it on the wrist and back in here fast!

 

I'm delighted for you.
