Decisions, decisions. nod[1].gif

Enjoy your trip... I just finished up this same itinerary over the holidays. The pace at which new watch boutiques pop up in s'pore is amazing. FWIW and if you didn't already know, the JLC boutique at Raffles has fairly limited inventory, so it may be worthwhile to call up Sincere or The Hour Glass in advance to give them time to bring something in if needed.

Panerai design + JLC movement = winning combination
 

Congrats!  Really handsome design! Great watch with a fantastic movement.  Sadly I wouldn't be able to wear it for work as my boss would find it too large/flashy for the office.  Still a very cool watch.  I'm sure you will enjoy it!

Thanks! What watches do you normally wear to work? I wouldn't wear this watch with a suit, but I remain surprised at how versatile it is. I'm wearing it with a collared shirt and it doesn't look particularly flashy. Before receiving the watch, I also was skeptical about whether even the Radiomirs could be worn outside of a casual setting.

On a separate note, what do you guys use to polish your watches?

i wear all of my watches to work. B&M capeland, JLC squadra and panny 112. never wear the panny with a suit, but i do wear it with a SC/trou/tie all the time. like today! i think it looks great! the other i wear with almost anything. also, i think with the right suit, id wear the panny, i just dont have any suits that fit that bill. but maybe thats only me.

i rarely polish my watches, but i did get a polish cloth from a jeweler that i use occasionally that buffs out small scratches and gives a nice shine.

Ah so you don't like the small seconds dial. That's fair. I initially considered the 210, then the 232 for the gold hands (gdl's 210 is modified), but the size of the 190 and the JLC movement won me over.

ive owned the 232, and wore the 210s rose gold version (231) and im sure the 190 beats all of those hands down.

For polishing, just a soft cloth. when the scuffs get really bad, use a cape cod cloth. works wonders on polished steel.

nice! love the 62. quite a substantial watch for the size. the white gold adds some weight to it....well balanced and elegant. They used zenith movements in quite a few of their watches...not sure why this one didnt take off as well as others...

oh, i like small seconds quite a bit, and i love yours. i just thought for those demanding even more elegance, the simpler 2 handers might appease their tastes. but i find yours to be quite elegant, myself. may i have it, lol?
