Very nice, I never put a Squadra on before. That's the one with the JLC logo on the rotor correct? If so you should reverse it and share the pic, it's only fair.

Nice caseback action, guys.

Gracias, I enjoy that display back more than the Grande Calendar (which I'm trying to talk myself out of).

Read through all 1,130+ pages (and counting) in this thread, along with some other sites, and after living most of my life with a couple of forgettable quartz pieces I decided to take the plunge last November to upgrade the collection.  Started with some classic mechanical pieces, grew restless after a short while so did some trades and upgrades (some of you will know this drill - I went through "the purge" with my clothes and shoes as well).  Finally achieved some "peace" with my current collection.  Here's one of my faves:


Do folks on the street recognize what this is on my wrist?  Not really.  Can people tell the difference between white gold and the subtle beauty and heft of this platinum beauty?  I don't think so.  But I know its value (to me, and in the collectors' market), and I love its aesthetics, workmanship and how its slim 36mm profile slips oh so easily under my shirt cuff.  It gives me much joy every time I look at it - probably every few minutes, especially if I'm in a boring meeting. smile.gif  Am I a douchebag?  Naw, just a guy approaching his 40s who's worked hard all his life, got lucky and got to save some money, and is probably going through a midlife crisis of sorts.
 
Thanks to you all for sharing your thoughts and pictures in this thread.  It is much appreciated.

Since case backs seem to be todays theme, here is a quick case back photo from a while ago.  Sorry sticker was still on the case back, making a few of the screws (technically nuts) look dirty or blury in the photo.  I need to take some better photos of the movement.

Someone was asking about antimagnetic watches before.

Looks like they just came out with an Omilgauss

Seamaster_Aqua_Terra_300dpi.jpg?format=750w

Which is apparently super duper antimagnetic.

Wait a minute - you've been lurking with this beauty in the stable? You need to please share more of your collection!

Congrats on an amazing piece. I agree with your sentiments entirely. Getting happiness and joy from ones watch be it a Patek, Jaeger or Casio is what it's all about when alls said and done

A bit hard to capture it properly because the bracelet is on, but here you go.
