The Watch Appreciation Thread - Page 1472

post #22066 of 34891
i had never heard of shinola before. interesting pieces. some look pretty cool. do not love the PAM homage tho.

newcomer, i like what you said about supporting american made products and what not, and maybe it is a marketing gimmick, who knows. either way, i cant see myself dropping that kind of coin on a watch like that, no hate. and i know that sounds super snobby. frown.gif

hopefully this one last reverso fit pic will make up for that dick comment.

Glad you are enjoying this thread (I'm addicted to it).  Great watch, the 1931 Tribute is probably my favorite Reverso model.  Thanks for sharing a photo of it with us.  I never get tired of seeing photos of that watch.  

 

Congrats on the deposition.  Any depo where the client doesn't torpedo the case by saying something stupid, is a great depo!

Stitchy - I can't believe nobody has considered .. you are way too well-dressed to be a pawn broker. Methinks the SF Cognoscenti do not spend enough time in actual pawn shops to k now the difference.

The god of Thunder has never looked quite so good.  And right beside the Hulk too!

Thanks for the very kind shout out.  Haven't been frequenting the thread or posting much lately because (a) the real world job is getting in the way of my horological obsessions and (b) I have managed to stay away from acquiring any pieces of late, although I did do some watch shopping with my brother-in-law recently (he balked at the end). 

 

Love the 1931 tribute Reverso.  So slim and elegant, no need to show off or be bombastic.  Glad your CEO didn't submarine your case!  Thanks for sharing!

 

Since I've been seeing the term Squadra thrown around lately, here's a Squadra I got for the wife for Valentine's Day this year.

Here's the other side.  Can you guys see how banged up the bracelet is?  Heh heh.  Well worn and well loved, this one.
