Thanks.

I gifted myself with it back in 1997... bought it in Frankfurt am Main while on a business trip.

The watch is actually sitting on a Gulf Coast industrial handbook (atop my desk) with the "cable" being Coby headphone wires...didn't mean to confuse anyone, I thought it just looked pretty cool in a still-life sort of way.

I gots mad camera-phone photography skillz LOL.

Nice Connie, kwhunter. Those two-tones always look very 80's retro to me, and I mean that as a compliment. I've always wanted an older pie-pan version but have yet to pull the trigger.

no not at all... it was "good" confused in an M.C. Escher kind of way... I couldn't figure out the perspective, but cool pic and cool watch regardless.

My ex-gf's steel and gold Connie was a few years earlier and differed in that the bezels on the earlier models were flat.  From the photo it looks like yours was the next generation which had domed bezels.  Again, nice choice share some more photos when you have time.

When (I guess) in 10-20 years the 1980s becomes fashionable again in terms of watches we may see a return to the design classics of that era - IMO the Constellation Manhattan is one of these classics.

Hey guys, just got my first big boy watch and I'm really liking it so far.

Looking at some of the ones on display in this thread I'm thinking maybe this one should be in the poor man's watch thread instead, but I figured I'd share anyway.

It's lovely--nice choice!

Very nice and certainly a respectable choice. Congrats!

Is that the Santoni edition?

That's a beautiful Gladstone in your avatar btw!

Re: Santoni IIRC their straps are only available on the 8-day hand-wounds, so the croc straps on mine probably aren't from them.

As for the Gladstone - I wholeheartedly agree; unfortunately it's not mine, and I can't seem to find anything quite like it. I've half a mind to just commission one similar to it for myself.

I wouldn't call IWC a poor man's watch, it is a well respected and expensive brand.   It is not as flashy and eye grabbing like other high end brands but nevertheles no poor man's, maybe just poorer man's revolve.gif

Any IWC is just classy.

Ah right. You didnt miss out anyway - the Santoni straps dont look anything impressive to me.

For Gladstones, SAB has them rtw. You could commission any of the typical London makers to do them too. I have been wanting one for years but they really are more objet d'art than practical luggage. They dont fit much, weigh a tonne, and cant be slung on the shoulder. Even when you're just doing a road trip in a swanky cabriolet, a soft duffel is much better.
