AD for Patek, AP, Rolex, JLC, Cartier, Panarai, IWC, Breitling and a few other brands. Considering their location I was very happy but not surprised when he made the AP deal happen. There aren't that many ADs for AP.

+1000. Fantastic customer service and great selection as well.

To test my willpower I will go to Leffot tomorrow and expose myself to the 116618LB blue sunburst dial and determine whether I can resist its siren song.

On the AD / watch show topic - one of my good friends heads up the watch division at Reis-Nichols Jewelers, and is in NYC to show (and sell) a few timepieces. He's wearing his 5711 right now (blue dial, @Steel28)... And brought a little piece for me to view... (take note @mimo)...


Shameless plug for anyone who wants to visit and check out the stuff - Leffot at 10 Christopher Street also has "other" things for viewing, like shoes that guys like @dddrees and @tifosi might appreciate. Ricardo Bestetti is also in town for a trunk show. Lots to see and fondle (merchandise - not people)...!
I wish I could make it up there for the watch event. I missed the last one, too.

So I simply can't afford a PP or AP so I just paid for the next best thing (IMO):



This will be joining my recently aquired BLNR & my almost decade old slightly 'modded' Omega SMP 2254.50. Can't wait!

Congratulations! How does it feel on the wrist and how do you like the blue of that dial?

For the record I have a couple of friends with several
PPs, APs and Rolexes who are really, really jonesing for this specific IWC!
