If you enjoyed that article, check out The Watchmaker's Apprentice. Staring Smith and Daniels, it goes in-depth into Smith's story. As an aside, I had the good fortune to meet Mr. Smith this year, he is incredibly humble and very nice.

@bkotsko I love this watch! You know, I only started looking at the Royal Oak after seeing this on your wrist last year. Inspired me to pick up the white dial chrono.

I do like your RO Chrono, Mike.

Next time you are through the area or vice versa, we will have to grab dinner.

Hahahahah - that's about right!

Any good places for pre-owned Rolex, Panerai, etc. in NYC?

post #45987 of 48312
Talk to the guys at the Tourneau on Madison. A lot of them are actual watch guys. They run deals from time to time on the pre-owned that gets them to decent prices. Regular prices are hit or miss.

I've been gone for a little while, but wanted to share the latest addition to my small collection.

Congrats on the new Daytona!  I'm a big fan of them with a black dial.  Looks great enjoy it!  :cheers:
