Daniels was the last of his type. I know of no other living horologist who could build a watch the way he did. That is make and assemble every component by hand. Maybe you do?

Daniels represented horology in its truest incarnation. Artist and technician which is my point.

Actually most of the recent ones have been of watches which are NOT ETA movements. But then again I'm a watch newbie. How about you show us examples of "the finest craftsmanship" from your own collection?

Here a low light iPhone pic my GF took at one of our dinner dates not long ago:

Thank you, apropos.  It's really something to appreciate, and I feel fortunate to be able to wear it. Now to resist the temptation to wear it all the time versus giving wrist time to my other babies too... oh heck, I'll wear it for a few days straight hehe.rotflmao.gif

Now I'll just go back to looking at Frilly's new watch, and hoping his money laundering business can keep up with his new "habit". lol8[1].gif

 

There has certainly been a bit more heat in the recent discussions.  As for the money laundering business, it has taken a serious, close to fatal hit from this recent purchase.  We shall see, however, if this truly is the "end game"....... baldy[1].gif

Frills, glad to see you putting the watch to good use so soon. Looks like you could use a new batch of shirts with a bigger left cuff though.

 

DLJr, you are right.  The 3970 is taller than most of my other watches (except possibly the Daytona).  The others slip quite comfortably in my cuffs (the 3940 is always a joy to wear because of this).

Just figured since you have your end game watch it'll give you something fun to do that'll be significantly easier on the wallet. Your watches are in a completely different league than what I get to put on my wrist, it's pretty neat to get to see you enjoy them.

Love the 5712! One of my favorites, congrats! You should get those matching nautilus cufflinks just for kicks.

Of course I wore the 3970J.  

 

 

 

 

I quite like that at 36mm it does not stand out in a garish way.  Here I am "in action" (pic taken by one of my workmates):

 

 

 

Cropped close-up is a little blurry but you can see that little beauty sitting on my wrist a bit better:

 

 

 

What can I say?  I love the little bugger.

I picked it up NOS from the Watchseller.com, they're an authorized dealer of RGM

post #18298 of 36838
Great wrist shot, frills. Diggin' your kicks, too.

MZHammer: what's the case size on that RGM? (Buy American!) That's a massive crown (and crown protectors).
post #18299 of 36838
hey guys, we are looking into buying this. thought is was cool so ill share it.


post #18300 of 36838

It IS cool.  One hand - now that's laid back.  I like the numerals and the proportions too.

 

Just one thing: do you think they do a men's version? stirpot.gif
