Nah, but you have to fulfill some basic requirements; have impeccable style, wealth, reputation, power, an Italian passport, lotsa sprezz and some age.

Luciano Barbera pulls it off.

When it was sold to me they called it a Double Pommes. Of course I've never found that one online.

Close, but not the same, I see.

Was thinking of getting some other straps for my MUT Moon. Suggestions? Think I can pull off a dark brown strap or should I stick with black?

I see. There's been many very small auto movements by multiple houses in the past. I believe Omega still produces some pretty small automatic ladies watches using Caliber 8520, like the Constellation or Ladymatic

Was thinking the same thing! As per my "symmetry" post previously, I love the date window at 6oclock on almost any watch

Ladymatic sounds like some sex toy you would buy out of a catalog in the 50s.

Nice looking watch guys.  I too have come to appreciate having the date at 6 o'clock.  Its much nicer looking than when you lose the 3 marker.

Excellent taste, sir. Looks identical, or very close to identical. Is your watch quite noisy? It sounds ridiculous, but mine is quite loud. I can hear the movement spinning. I have a Cartier that can be a bit loud from time to time, but nothing like the Longines...
