watch yourself before i tell you what YOU need to do.
there are a bit odd, but i like the quirk.
That Maurice Lacroix is beautiful! I love the layout of the dial and the gold bezel adds just enough flair.
When I first say the Nomos in a magazine I liked it. Now that I look at the watch some more, the dial is too, I don't know if I am saying this right, architectually laid out. The lines are thin and perfect...it just sort of bothers me for personal taste. It works for certain people and I have nothing against it but I would not personally think about purchasing it.
Nothing to worry about Keith. I was parked in the driveway while Mrs. Dino snapped that photo.
Its on its way...the tracking number is 1234567891011121314
Nice find. I have a black dial 16570. It was the first watch my wife ever bought for me and it was a wedding gift to use when we were going overseas for our honeymoon. Great watch, and for many years it was my daily wearer. Enjoy yours!
Great Patek, ugly car.
You and Ron didn't miss anything by not knowing what it is. IMHO, its a car that is different. The problem is, whether its a car, a watch, or just about anything...different is easy. Creating something better and more beautiful than the "standards" by which others are measured is very difficult. Sadly, the makers missed the mark when it comes to better or beautiful.
Hi Ron, glad to hear it was just auto correct. I wasn't sure where you were headed bringing ballet into the conversation.
Thanks for the wrist shot! Would it help if I mentioned my father in law has a Richard Nixon watch (that I'm sure I'll inherit one day), and my last 2 daily drivers each had more than 200,000 miles when we gave up on them.
... at Sotheby's preparing his bid!
Oh yeah... those 3970s do have that dot between 1 and 31, huh. It's interesting how these subtle differences crop up across series. For example, the piece I have does not have that little dot, but I have the sculpted baton markers:
Which I like more than the stick markers from the photos above. Although Belligero will probably point out that my piece has the more lifeless sans serif font for the day and month versus the more stylized font used in the Sotheby's pieces.
But where was I? I was actually in Las Vegas for a few days for a conference. Apparently hiring a car service from the hotel to the airport means you get driven around in something like this (pardon the bad pic, I attribute this to the irrational hold Blackberry still has on me):
I had to get up at 3am Vegas time, and of course there were shops open 24/7, including a watch and jewelry boutique. I've had my fill of "small, elegant" 36mm pieces, and even the AP ROOs in stock didn't do it for me. So, since I figured, heck, since I was in Vegas........
Hah hah, naw, naw, I didn't get it. I did try it on for fun, though!
