Great looking jacket.

Wish they made more sizes, 42 as 'extra large' is sorta a cruel joke.

Pick this up instead. Looks much better IMO and if the auction doesn't blow up, this would be a steal.

I use one when I travel. It's great and the foam inserts leave the watch more protected than the Oakley variant.

+1 on the Omega travel case.

BLNR aside, that is a great looking jacket.

+2 on the Omega travel case. I've got one and I can't fault it.

Awesome that's great. Thanks!

Any thoughts on this little jewel? IWC Pilot's automatic 36mm..Seems a steal at $3950 (per Hodinkee).

Personally I love the strap, and I think it would be a great option for the smaller-wristed set, looking for something sporty-ish:






For me, I'm pretty happy with my own pilot, but it does make me anxious to see what the (presumably fuller-sized) Mark XVIII is going to look like.

There are photos of the XVIII out there already; it looks the same as the previous one except instead of that triple date window awkwardly placed too far to the left, there's a normal date window awkwardly placed too far to the left. It's extra-noticeable due to the white background, too:




(pottery-cased version also available)

It seems like a rather lazy watch to me, but not all those who use off-the-shelf movements suffer from this lack of attention to detail.

Somehow Oris has managed to produce a watch that's almost exactly the same size and that uses the same movement, but they've gone to the trouble of putting in a custom date wheel to avoid the marooned look, and at a much lower cost:

That Oris is one handsome beater.

Not impressed with the new 36mm IWC for 4k. Stock movement no? IWC's pricing usually strikes me as... aggressive.

Ah, I see.

Weeelllll, I think my disdain for the triple-date is probably well enough known here, despite any added functionality.

Obviously they brought back the 6 and 9, which should please some folks. (I don't think the XVII had them).

And is that a sunburst? Or matte dial?


But back to the smaller auto version, crazy as it sounds I do think under $4K for full retail (with a Santoni strap) seems almost reasonable in today's pricing world.
