BTW, are all Autavias cal. 12 or were some the predecessor cal. 11? I have a black dialed one like yours (though it has a rotating diver bezel rather than a tachymeter) and I am not sure which movement is in it.

The cal 12 was introduced in the Monaco in 1971, so at least the earliest Autavias have the cal 11. Not sure when it was introduced in the Autavia.

Yes, I've been asking around for where I can find a veterinarian near where I live/work.  Because the pythons are looking SICK!  Hyuk hyuk.

Hahaha....fine figure of a fellow.  Still, don't risk those dainty wrists if anyone attacks you; just hit them with your wallet. peepwall[1].gif

A man who wears watches as nice as yours, really should eat better. :)

 

Can't say much more than "well, yes" to both of these posts.  Tweeheehee.

Very stylish picture (no homo) that illustrates the dress-sport and modern-classic versatility of the Daytona. It's very enjoyable to own a watch that shines across a wide range of contexts and makes you feel like you can go anywhere/do anything.

Also really like the pictures of the Daytona on the strap without the end links. The end links + strap combo looks very odd to me for some reason.

They are kind of dainty, aren't they?  My Daytona's bracelet settings has the watch sitting closer to my hand, which I like.  But it's also perfect for my wife, who likes watches sitting about an inch or so higher up her forearm.  Which basically means my wife's wrist is about as large as mine, and I outweigh her by close to 60 pounds.  Maybe I am trying to compensate for something with the biceps and all......nest.gif

 

Let the Daytona rest today and wore the tonneau cased 5040J.  "WRUW" pic below.

My wrists are quite small compared to the rest of me too, but you're in way better shape than I am by the look of it!  Anyway, that's a great pic.  Nice suit, fantastic shoes, you look great.  They will murder you in the WAYWRN thread (for the tie and clip), but they can kiss your watch. :)

Thanks, johanm - for a variety of reasons I wore another piece with my suit today, but I would have been perfectly comfortable wearing the Daytona with it.  Just as I felt comfortable wearing it with a white shirt and jeans this morning.

 

And on the topic of straps: it's cold today, but when it gets warmer in the Spring and Summer in NYC I suspect the steel bracelets will get far more wrist time than my leather straps.

also, yeah, that is a pretty penny, looks like its being sold at a premium on the gray market these days.

Hey Stitch, I'm not sure I've ever seen part of a number cut off in a way that I would consider artistic.  However, to answer your question, the reason for the cut out on the 5059, was that the movement had been used in the 5050, which used a more conventional case with sloping lugs and a different dial.  The 5050 had minute markers and its hour makers are in line with them, while the 5059 has a thicker and detailed minute track that pushed the hour markers inward and forced the arc of the date downward a bit.  Both are nice watches, overall I prefer the 5059's appearance (case and dial) except for the leap year cutting out part of the date...but I'd gladly take either.
