Indeed.  Still not sure I like it for the money, though!

I'm not a fan of that dial layout on any of their watches.

Nor me.  Though in fairness, it looked quite novel and cool on the guy's wrist, and still has the quality feel.  But yeah, I guess it's in the category of "what to buy for your tenth Patek?" or however many he's got.

 

Ironically, he is the Rolex agent.  Also Cartier, Piaget, GP and a couple of lesser lights.  But not Patek.  He just likes them. :)

My beloved La Tradition.

And GP EOT.  With the wrong date of course. I never get myself set the dates for my Annual and Perp Calendars..

so came to the conclusion that when it comes to dress watches, simpler the better..

I tried this one on in rose gold a while ago.  Really great watch and I love the asymmetric dial!

Yes, much prefer to the dial of Patek 5712.. It is not a popular watch though, so far I know two people bought it; yours truly and Sarkozy! We share the same taste in woman also..

I think the bracelet is definitely your best option to get the most versatility out of it. I also agree that the bracelet would give it a more formal look than my leather band, which gives off a very casual and sporty feel.

Unfortunately, I don't think you have the option anymore if you want that exact dial. The current iterations of the watch, on the leather band, have the arabic numerals on it. Not bad, but I prefer the more simplified look, personally. I'd get it on bracelet and have zero second thoughts about it, I'm still probably going to buy the bracelet soon to give myself a bit more use out of the watch.

Its a beautiful watch.  Here in the US, its a brand most only consider purchasing pre-owned because with limited interest in their pieces they tend to get hit hard by depreciation.  Still its a really beautiful watch.  Thanks for sharing some pix with us.  :cheers:

I love ALS and this dress watch particularly. Sadly, not going to have one anytime soon. Even a GO is a bit down the road!

Thanks for sharing those pics from your collections, @alpyigit and @zippyh! Always nice to view.

 

@mimo - I didn't like that 5960/1A when it was introduced but as usual once I saw it in person there really was that high quality feel.  I still probably wouldn't spend the cash required to buy that thing, even pre-owned, but I have several friends who have come around and now want a 5960/1A after some time spent not liking it much. Funny how time and having those things on your wrist changes perspective.

@zippyh - Love the all black GMT.  If the BLNR hadn't been black and blue but black and some other color, I would have picked up the all black.  And that donut!

 

@alpyigit - Very interesting Breguet.  Usually a  watch with visible internals is a turn off but this piece pulls it off well.  Wear it in good health!

Is Jomashop reliable?  Sounds as though they are.  They seem to have some good prices when they have a flash sale and don't charge sales tax if you live outside of New York.  Anyone ever used them?
