Feel free to post your closet full of ALS, PP, and VCs at your earliest possible convenience. Thanks so much!

I'm sure the Battlestar Galactica girl is very nice but no one wants to watch her f**k.

 

Hows about you stop posting? I think that works...

big fat MEGA LIKE!

Need some help and some education.

 

I am currently looking at German watches.  I like the clean, industrial, no bling look.

 

I usually wear suits.  Platinum wedding ring only jewellery on me.

 

Which one of these two?

 

The first one is superclean from Glashutte & Muhle

Second one is a little more complicated- from Sothis.

Wow Nonserviam, you appear to have a nice collection! But i definitely prefer the PP over the JLC, the JLC is too flashy for me.

But i must ask you, why didnt you go with the simple Nautilus, like this one

438

Been my dream watch for as long as i can remember.

Thank you! nod[1].gif The JLC is a bit flashy, which is exactly it's intended purpose in my collection. The rose gold has an amazing warmth.

I guess the picture is of the 3700? The 5711 was my original thought, and I was about to get it a couple of years ago. But for some reason (price!) I went with the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15300 instead. That is an amazing watch with a fantastic bracelet, but on my wrist it was never comfortable and got sold off. The bracelet was too rigid and the lock too thick. The original RO Jumbo might have been a better choice.

Anyway, this year I started thinking about the Nautilus again, and the plain 5711 was the plan. But I happened to chance upon a opportunity to get a used 5712 through another watch deal. Once on the wrist, there was no choice anymore. The asymmetry of the dial, the moon phase, the micro-rotor movement, everything just clicked. It was simply more interesting.

I still find the simplicity of the 5711 alluring, but there is no room for two Nautiluses (eh Nautili?) in my collection. Also, I never warmed to the date aperture of the 5711. It is too cramped and cheap, and the watch would have looked much better without it.

When looking at the steel Nautilus lineup of 5711, 5712, 5726 and 5980, I find the 5712 to be an obvious choice both aesthetically and financially. For only a moderate addition to the price of the 5711 you get a complicated Patek, with beautiful and simple complications. To add the grander complications of an annual calendar or a chronograph, the price difference to the 5711 is to steep in my view (and for the chrono, way too steep!).

Also, though many will disagree, I prefer the asymmetric dial of the 5712 to the stricter dial of the 5726. There is a playfulness to the 5712 that I enjoy. That said, I can't deny desiring the chrono. It has great wrist presence, maybe sacrificing some of the elegance of the 5711 and the 5712. But the price is just too high.

The plain Nautilus is a great watch, go for it if you ever get the opportunity!

Take Muhle Glashutte, better from this two imho, besides chronographs are not for suits at all.

New Chopard Luna d'Oro Perpetual Calendar with a retro-grade date that my wife purchased for my 30th Birthday. Unfortunately, it'll be sitting in a safe for another 9 months until I'm actually 30! However, I certainly enjoy looking at this picture of it on...
